Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on Thursday explained to his audience how voters were “deceived” by Attorney General Bill Barr’s claims about what was included in the report by special counsel Robert Mueller.
Smith noted the discrepancy between whether Barr views his job as working for the American people or being the personal attorney for President Donald Trump.
“If the goal is to control the narrative though — though the attorney general is supposed to work for the people, not the president — in this case if you’re the president and the attempt is to control the narrative, in other words to tell people, here’s what it’s going to say before it gets out there, all 448 pages, if I’m the president, I’m happy with what William Barr did this morning,” he explained.
“But if I’m one seeking the truth about what is in this report, in many cases we were deceived,” he noted.
“Specifically, he said that the president fully cooperated, where the president was openly trying to keep people from cooperating and openly trying to keep his own testimony from them,” Smith reported. “That is not full cooperation by anyone’s definition.”
Don Lemon lists ‘manipulative garbage’ Trump uses to exploit his supporters’ ignorance
CNN host Don Lemon thinks that President Donald Trump is using issues like race to manipulate his voters into voting against their own interest.
In his opening commentary, Lemon showed the clip of Trump's supporters chanting "send her back" at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a Somali immigrant who came to the U.S. when she was just 12 years old.
He then cited a tweet that Trump sent out earlier Wednesday.
"New Poll: The Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in predicting the 2016 Election, has just announced that "Trump" numbers have recently gone up by four points, to 50 percent. Thank you to the vicious young Socialist Congresswomen. America will never buy your act! #MAGA2020," Trump tweeted.
Seth Meyers hilariously jabs ‘most oily’ Trump child Don Jr.
Late-night host Seth Meyers took an epic jab at Donald Trump Jr. during his Wednesday night show.
Meyers showed the clip of Trump appointee Ken Cuccinelli going down in flames in a CNN interview where he tried to pretend he hadn't heard the president's racist tweets. The host not only read the tweets for Cuccinelli, but she also caught him being asked about the tweets the day before on another show.
Trump and the GOP stand for ‘blaming others if you’re not happy where you are’: Democratic congressman
Unapologetic about his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color, President Donald Trump stood smugly by at his Wednesday rally in Greenville, South Carolina as his supporters attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) with chants of "Send her back! Send her back!"
In conversation with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) denounced it as just standard operating procedure for this president and the party that elected him.
"I want to talk health care, but ... [Trump] ain't going to campaign on health care," said Cuomo. "He's going to campaign that there's something wrong with the way you look and people like you are a little bit of a danger. And we're a little bit better off when you guys stay where you were before you were here. That's his campaign. He is confident. How do you counter?"
