Fox News reporting ‘no exoneration’ was a ’fatal blow’ to Donald Trump’s delicate state of mind: Nicolle Wallace

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s fragile state-of-mind was dealt a “fatal blow” by Fox News, MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace reported on “Deadline: White House.”

The host explained that “today we’ve been watching the collapse of a con.”

“Donald Trump’s cover story — crafted with a heavy assist from Attorney General William Barr’s five pre-report appearances and statements — came crumbling down today when Donald Trump woke up and realized that Robert S. Mueller clearly found evidence he obstructed justice and that he had unseemly contacts with a foreign adversary,” Wallace said.

“The fatal blow to his fragile state may have come from the words on the bottom of the screen on his network of choice Fox News where they ran these words, ‘no exoneration,'” she continued, showing a clip of Fox News personality Bret Baier on Wednesday.

“It was a far cry from Trump’s words, ‘total and complete exoneration,'” Wallace noted.

“To be caught in a lie is nothing new for Donald Trump, but to have been outed and revealed by a man like Robert Mueller, who could not be corrupted, baited or intimidated by Donald Trump’s mean tweets, seemed to undo the president,” she observed.

The host played a clip from Trump’s bonkers statements to reporters on the White House lawn, where he called Mueller’s investigators “some of the worst human beings on earth.”

“If you need any further evidence that Mueller’s performance yesterday left Trump stripped of his typical bluster, today he admitted that Russia helped him win writing on Twitter, ‘I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected,'” she explained.

“Of course, he saw the reaction on that from Twitter, got out of jammies to go the cameras and tried to clean it up, but the damage was done,” she concluded.

Trump allowed Erdoğan's visit despite Turkey's ethnic cleansing of America's Kurdish allies in northern Syria.

Onlookers were shocked that Erdoğan did this in front of the president and multiple Republican senators.

From the White House, Erdogan is ranting about the Armenian Genocide, saying it didn’t happen and that he wants to set up a “history commission.”

Veteran ex-Trump supporter: ‘Real veterans who remember their oath will support impeachment’

Published

on

In an op-ed published in The Times of Israel this Wednesday, an Army veteran who has since renounced his support of President Trump accused the President of being "unpatriotic."

According to David Weisman, "real veterans who remember their oath will support impeachment."

"When I first got into politics, as I have mentioned numerous times, I thought the Republican Party was the party of upholding the Constitution and ethical principles," Wesiman writes. "I took the word of pundits thinking Republicans stood for truth, justice, and the American way. I never questioned their integrity when they condemned President Obama. Why? Because they were religious and it didn’t occur to me they would lie. Years later, if you are aware of my story, I learned that most of the demonizing of President Obama was propaganda. I’ve also learned to read the fine print of the Constitution because there’s more involved than just the right of free speech and the right to bear arms. Lots of nuance to acknowledge."

WATCH: Trump whines to Turkish president he only takes questions from ‘friendly reporters’

Published

on

In a press conference Wednesday with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, President Donald Trump openly reminded that he only takes questions from people on his side.

"Would you like to pick somebody?" Trump asked Erdoğan after taking a question from the far-right OANN. "A friendly person from Turkey, please. Friendly. Only friendly reporters. There aren’t too many of them around."

Trump has increasingly refused to take questions from reporters who ask him actual questions that he both knows the answer to and will make him look good.

The White House hasn't hosted a "daily press briefing" for 247 days and not at all under the new press secretary, Stephanie Grisham. She has, however, had time to appear on Fox News multiple times to speak for the White House.
