WATCH: Fox News host accuses Trump of ‘subservience’ to Russia by delaying attack on Syria

Published

President Donald Trump appears “subservient” to Russia, Fox News anchor Leland Vittert concluded during a Saturday interview of Milwaukee talk radio host Dan O’Donnell.

The scrutiny came after O’Donnell said America’s top priority in Syria was to not anger Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“We have to walk the line, we don’t want to provoke World War III with Russia and its allies and destroying a lot of Russian defense personnel or anything like that,” O’Donnell argued. “The last thing that we want is to get a system of entangling alliance like in World War I.”

“Whoa, but hold on,” Vittert interrupted.

“Is the last thing we want, to send a strong message and actually poke the bear or is the last thing we want to be seen as being subservient to whatever Russia tells us we can and can’t do?” he asked. “Which one is worse?”

“I don’t think this is seen as subservient to Russia, remember we killed how many hundred Russian forces a couple of weeks ago,” O’Donnell answered.

“Hold on, hold on, a Russian general basically said, if you endanger any Russian troops or Russian assets, then we’ll retaliate, otherwise we won’t,” he noted. “So you can read that, essentially, as go ahead and hit anything you want as long as it’s not Russian.”

“That sounds pretty subservient,” Vittert concluded. “That kind of sounds like tip-toeing around the Russians.”

Body language expert dissects the power dynamic at play in the iconic Nancy Pelosi photo

Published

on

Last week, President Donald Trump met with Democrats at the White House to discuss the way both sides could work to fix the President's mistakes in Syria. Democrats left the White House saying that the President had another meltdown during the meeting, which prompted Trump to claim Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was the one who had a meltdown. He then posted photos of Pelosi sitting quietly and another photo of Pelosi standing and pointing at him.

Body language expert Dr. Jack Brown posted the photo and gave his own analysis of what he believed was happening in the photo.

"When a person has little or no empathy — and/or when they're far from their emotional baseline, their ability to interpret how others will view an event becomes dramatically distorted," Brown explained Sunday. "Rarely has this behavioral axiom been better exemplified than last Wednesday at the White House."
