MSNBC pundit nails Trump for only attacking Black voices on Fox News

Published

on

Democratic strategist Joel Payne called out President Donald Trump Sunday for his attacks on Fox News when he was leaving New Jersey.

Before Trump landed in Marine One at Morristown, New Jersey, he tweeted an attack on Juan Williams, the only Black pundit on the Fox News show “The Five.”

Trump briefly addressed Williams, before he told members of the press that he found it appalling Fox News hired a friend of Hillary Clinton’s, whose name he couldn’t even remember.

“And the wonderful woman that gave Hillary Clinton the questions,” Trump said of Donna Brazile. “That was a terrible thing. All of a sudden, she’s working for Fox. What’s she doing working for Fox? Fox has changed, and my worst polls have always been from Fox. There’s something going on at Fox, I’ll tell you right now, and I’m not happy with it.”

He then turned again to attack Williams.

Payne noted that they are two of very few people of color on the network. Out of all of the voices who call him out him regularly like, Shep Smith or Chris Wallace, Trump went after the Black ones.

“We’re three black men sitting here, and we watched this, and I heard that ad hominem attack on Juan Williams and Donna Brazile who I’m telling you–” Payne said before being cut off briefly by MSNBC host Al Sharpton.

“He couldn’t even remember her name!” Sharpton noted.

“He couldn’t even remember her name,” Payne agreed. “I tweeted about it, and it’s just very interesting to me that he found the two notable African-Americans at Fox News to call out because that’s where he goes. That’s who he is. That’s the core of who Donald Trump is.”

Georgetown law professor John Mikhail suggested on Sunday that the portion of President Donald Trump's defense which is being covered by Alan Dershowitz to fail because it has "no sound basis" in history and law.

"There is no sound basis for Alan Dershowitz to claim that abuse of power is not an impeachable offense. In addition to being at odds with common sense, this claim is contradicted by a clear and consistent body of historical evidence," Mikhail stated.

The law professor cited the impeachment of Warren Hastings in the 1780s.

"Some of the best evidence comes from the case of Warren Hastings, which informed the drafting Art. II, Sec 4," Mikhail wrote. "The fact that he was not guilty of treason, but still deserved to be impeached, was a major reason 'other high crimes and misdemeanors' was added to the Constitution."
