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.

“With the closure of these proceedings it is clear that the prosecutors have not found any instances of criminal misconduct on the part of Deutsche Bank employees following the raid of our Frankfurt office in November 2018,” Deutsche Bank spokesman Joerg Eigendorf said in a statement.

“The investigation that has now been closed due to lack of sufficient suspicion had a heavy impact on Deutsche Bank last year,” he added. “It is true that the bank had weaknesses in its control environment in the past. We identified these weaknesses and we have addressed them in a disciplined manner.”

Trump Hotel with Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York city and the real-life version of Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter.
