Fox News hosts Juan Williams and Neil Cavuto seemed stunned on Tuesday after President Donald Trump tweeted that his former aid, Omarosa Manigault, is a “dog.”
Moments after Williams joined Cavuto, who was guest hosting a Fox Business show, Trump posted the personal attack on Manigault.
When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!

“You just wonder — dog?” Williams gasped. “What is he thinking? Doesn’t he know he’s president?”
“What do you think of these tweets?” Cavuto mused. “They go with no abandon, on and on.”
“The best light I can shine on it is that he is himself,” Williams replied. “That’s Donald Trump. That’s what he’s thinking. I just wish that the impulse controls were a little stronger. And I think that it’s offensive — even though she is not someone who you would consider a Trump supporter at the moment. She’s turned on him, you could call her traitor.”
“But I don’t know why you would stoop to the level to calling somebody a dog,” he added. “He knows how people are going to react. So, is it intentional? I don’t know. I just think it’s not good.”

Rand Paul moves to ban collection of congressional phone records after Nunes was caught calling Giuliani associates
On Monday, Politico reported that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is pushing to change congressional rules to prohibit subpoenas from committee chairmen from seeking the phone records of members of Congress, as well as those of journalists.
This comes directly after a subpoena served to AT&T revealed that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) had been covertly communicating with indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, as well as right-wing reporter John Solomon, who was responsible for disputed reports attacking former Vice President Joe Biden's son and former Ukrainian Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.
A hateful defense: Republicans can’t exonerate Trump — and so they’re relying on primal loathing
Republicans have nothing: That is the only reasonable conclusion one can draw after Monday’s impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s clear that Donald Trump is guilty of running an extortion scheme against Ukraine in order to gin up false accusations against his potential 2020 rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. The evidence, which has been laid out in a series of hearings and in a 300-page document released last week, is voluminous and crystal-clear.
‘Why does he need to cheat?’ Intelligence Committee lawyer reveals why he’s concerned nothing will stop Trump
During the impeachment hearing on Monday, Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL) discussed President Donald Trump's solicitation of foreign election interference with Intelligence Committee lawyer Daniel Goldman — who offered a disturbing reason why he thinks Trump will just keep doing it.
"The president's behavior is incredibly disturbing," said Mucarsel-Powell. "Russia, Ukraine, China, he's inviting three countries to help him in his reelection campaign. I don't see any reason he wouldn't ask any other government, for example, Venezuela, correct?"
"At this point, he has shown not only a willingness to do it multiple times, but more importantly for all the members' consideration, he's also shown a lack of contrition, a lack of acknowledgement what he is doing is wrong and that it is wrong," said Goldman. "If you don't recognize that it is wrong, there is no reason why you won't do it again if you've already done it."
