Fox News host Shep Smith slaps down Trump’s whining about Sessions: ‘The Attorney General works for the people’

Published

on

President Donald Trump once again ramped up his attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week, saying that he didn’t “have an Attorney General.”

Fox News’ Shepard Smith pointed to an apparent flaw in Trump’s reasoning Wednesday. “When you think things can’t get worse. He denied his existence. He said ‘Oh, I don’t have an Attorney General. But the Attorney General isn’t supposed to be on his team. He works for the people.”

Fox News contributor John Bussey wondered why the President is lashing out against Sessions now and why he’s doing it in such a public and humiliating way.”

“Why is this happening in public? Why not resolve it in private? If you don’t like him, move on to the next Attorney General? Why the constant humiliation of Sessions?” Bussey wondered.

“You have to conclude that the president feels vulnerable,” Bussey said. “Why that may be, perhaps only Mr. Mueller knows.”

‘Simply astonishing’: Retired general sounds the alarm on Trump’s ‘utter breakdown’ in foreign policy process

Published

Ret. Gen. Barry McCaffrey on Monday sounded the alarm on President Donald Trump's foreign policy team, which he said had shown no indications that it is capable of dealing with a real crisis on the world stage.

While appearing on MSNBC, McCaffrey was asked about a quote from former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta in which he said that the entire Trump foreign policy team is being held hostage to the president's impulsive tweets.

"I think the most important thing Panetta said here was the utter breakdown of a national security process," he explained. "It's simply astonishing! [Defense Secretary nominee Mark] Esper still hasn't been confirmed, you've had a series of acting secretaries of defense, no one really understands what [Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo, who is a very intelligent person, is up to."

Fox News host wipes smirk from colleague’s face by dismantling his ‘love it or leave it’ rant

Published

A Fox News host shut down her colleague's defense of President Donald Trump's "love it or leave it" rhetoric.

Pete Hegseth, a "Fox & Friends" host, appeared on the network's "Outnumbered" program to defend the president from charges of racism after he called out four Democratic congresswomen -- all of them women of color -- to return to their home countries.

"He’s a capitalist versus that out-and-out socialist, anti-Semitic comments that they've made," Hegseth claimed. "He wants that foil, and I think where he comes at it from the love of country perspective. It’s not that they just love and cherish the country so much, but they want to make some policy tinkers. It's that they want to change the country completely, they think America is defined by our sins and it’s a bad place."

Meghan McCain snaps at Sunny Hostin for daring to disagree with her about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Published

on

Meghan McCain slammed President Donald Trump for hurling racist abuse at four Democratic congresswomen to heighten divisions in his rival party, and then framed the debate in the exact same way he has.

The conservative co-host on "The View" condemned the president's statements urging the four first-year lawmakers to return to their home countries as racist, and then complained that one of their chiefs of staff had accused moderate Democrats of turning a blind eye to racism.

"I think the politics of this is fascinating," McCain began. "We spent our entire week last week talking about how racist and xenophobic the original comments and the chants were, and I stand by that statement."
