‘He Has Been Building the Wall This Whole Time’
Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren is attacking President Donald Trump, and Trump supporters are attacking Tomi Lahren. While the karma is great, what’s really funny is what the Trump supporters are saying to support their president.
Lahren has an opinion on just about everything, and shares these nuggets in her “Final Thoughts” hot take videos, while occasionally appearing on “Fox & Friends” to promote her unique musings.
Her stock in trade is attacking liberals and Democrats while maintaining an elevated degree of racism that keeps her popular among the Fox News crowd.
But on Wednesday morning Lahen deviated from the formula, and channeled Ann Coulter by attacking the President over a bipartisan deal to avoid what would be Trump’s fifth government shutdown.
The deal reportedly offers no money for any new wall building, but includes $1.4 billion for 55 miles of rural area fencing. Trump had demanded $5.7 billion to build 200 miles of new, concrete wall. He got zero.
Lahen predicted that Trump will lose re-election in 2020 if he signs the deal, which he indicated Wednesday morning he will.
I’m not gonna sugar coat it, if @realDonaldTrump takes this sham border deal from the Democrats, he loses in 2020 and we ALL lose for years to come.
I’ll discuss on @foxandfriends in 10 mins!

Trump supporters went ballistic, tossing embarrassingly false claims at her, like, “he is building the wall & has been since day one,” “Year one he had his own a party against him,” “He works harder than any other president,” and “He’s a master at negotiation.”
Take a look and laugh – or cry – at just how deeply Trump supporters have bought into his lies:
Ye of little faith! The Wall is being built as we speak 🇺🇸MAGA🇺🇸

Tomi, I get your spiel, and I’m down with it, but realize .@realDonaldTrump is NOT a politician. Listen to what he says, that he is building the wall & has been since day one. He’s about getting things DONE, one way or the other. Support him, trust him. #MAGA2020 #Grit #Hooah! 🇺🇸

There is a plan up his sleeve. He did what he had to do. Year one he had his own a party against him. He has fought every day in the White House for us. He works harder than any other president against horrible, disgusting opposition.He will build a wall &defund PP

Considering the obstacles @POTUS has had to endure since day one I'll support him a second term no matter what. And if you don't see his strategy than sit down and learn something.
White House lawyers were desperate not to talk about Rudy Giuliani — or Trump’s other conspiracy theories: CNN analyst
On Saturday, CNN analyst Gloria Borger noted a key piece of the timeline that was conveniently missing from the defense presented by President Donald Trump's legal team: The involvement of Trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
"The one person that Jay Sekulow didn't mention is Rudy Giuliani, because this is Rudy Giuliani's theory of the game here," said Borger. "They were very careful not to bring up Rudy Giuliani because they know that he is not well regarded in the United States Senate, but if you again look at this summary of the transcript of the president's phone call, the president talks about CrowdStrike, he talks about a lot of things that went on. 'I would like to have the attorney general call you or your people, I would like to have you get to the bottom of it,' this whole nonsense, he talked about Bob Mueller and said a lot of it started with Ukraine."
Pompeo ridiculed by CNN panel for his ‘phony mock outrage’ response after being outed as a foul-mouthed bully
Responding to a statement from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued through the State Department accusing an NPR journalist of being "shameless" for going public with an encounter she had with him in his offices where he cursed at her, a CNN panel all but rolled their eyes at his "phony" outrage.
Speaking with host Anderson Cooper, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin called out the blustery Pompeo as well as many Republicans who took "umbrage" at Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) mentioning a report that the Donald Trump would have their heads on "on a pike" if they crossed him.
Trump attorney Sekulow’s impeachment defense of president blown out of the water with Lindsey Graham statement
On Saturday, one of the biggest opening arguments made by President Donald Trump's legal team at the impeachment trial was that there was, in fact, a risk that Ukraine had meddled in U.S. elections.
"Mr. Schiff and his colleagues repeatedly told you that the intelligence community assessment that Russia was acting alone, responsible for the election interference, implying this somehow debunked the idea there might be in — you know, interference from other countries, including Ukraine," said Trump counsel Jay Sekulow. "This is basically what we call a straw man argument."
But MSNBC's Brian Williams knocked down this defense with a clip from none other than one of President Donald Trump's biggest allies: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
