Fox News’ Brit Hume on Tuesday said that he felt somewhat mortified by the released tidbits he’s seen from Bob Woodward’s new book, called “Fear: Trump in the White House.”
In particular, Hume found himself appalled that White House aides are removing documents from the president’s view because they do not want him to read them and make disastrous policy mistakes that could gravely harm American security.
“There’s an account in there of a document he’s about to sign to do something, and they came and took it off his desk,” Hume said during a Tuesday afternoon Fox News segment.
However, Hume did come up with a bright side to Woodward’s disturbing narrative of Trump’s presidency: Namely, that there were responsible people around him who will hide information from him to stop him from destroying the nation.
“So what does that say to the people in the ‘Never Trump’ movement, particularly on the right, who don’t think the people who are serving in the Trump administration should do so because it participates in this fiasco of a presidency?” he asked rhetorically. “It seems to me the lesson that comes away from this is: Thank God for the people around Trump who are keeping him on the straight and narrow to the extent they can.”

"I've got big gums, and I cannot lie," Colbert said.
"Yeah, 95, guys, I'm tellin' ya," Colbert said, pretending to be Eric with his lips curled up.
Black Pennsylvania Trump voter wonders if he’s still welcome in the GOP
Tuesday, CNN released interviews with Texas Trump supporters who defended his racist attacks on four Congresswomen of color. Wednesday night, Van Jones showed his panel of supporters of both President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama. But things got tense when a Black Trump supporter was asked about the president's racially charged statements.
Two men, one white one Black, in the group said they supported Trump and probably would again because business was good. Two women in the group lamented that Trump's racism was hurtful for the country.
"I just go back to values," the older women said. "I value treating people with dignity. And if there is anything that is incongruent with those values, then I'm not for that. So I'm not going to put profit over my values."
