Fox’s Andrew Napolitano delivers on-air rebuttal after Trump lashes out at his ‘dumb’ legal analysis

Published

on

Andrew Napolitano on Monday addressed Donald Trump’s personal attacks against him on-air after the president insulted the Fox News judicial analyst’s intelligence over the weekend.

Napolitano also accused Trump of mischaracterizing a conversation between them, during which the president claims Napolitano asked to be placed on the Supreme Court and “asked for pardon for his friend.”

Trump on Saturday issued a series of disparaging tweets after Napolitano’s last week described the president’s behavior as “immoral,” “criminal” and “defenseless.”

Responding to the president’s comments on Fox Business Monday, Napolitano asked, “This is the way you treat your friends? How do you treat your enemies?”

Referencing Trump’s claim that he asked the president to appoint him to the Supreme Court, Napolitano described a meeting during the transition where he was advising Trump on Supreme Court nominees. According to Napolitano, Trump at one point told the Fox News judicial analyst it “sounds like you’re describing yourself.”

“I said ‘no, no, I’m not describing myself,’” Napolitano explained. “‘I’m describing Neil Gorsuch because you have this list of people from which you want to choose, and Judge Gorsuch is the person that I think most of your advisers are going to point to.’”

Napolitano later said Trump’s attack was a “brilliant” way to deflect from the ongoing conversation surrounding special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

While previewing former special counsel Robert Mueller's upcoming testimony before the House of Representatives, CNN on Tuesday played a clip from six years ago showing Mueller schooling Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), who tried to corner the then-FBI director about his agency's work on the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

During the hearing, Gohmert tried to get Mueller to explain why the FBI supposedly hadn't visited the mosque that was frequented by the Tsarnaev brothers, the two American citizens of Chechen descent who carried out the attack.

"Why did no one go to the mosque and say, who are these guys?" Gohmert asked. "Why was that not done?"
