Fox Business host Stuart Varney has a long and humiliating history of losing it when President Donald Trump says or tweets anything about his show. While most reporters remain dignified, Varney has, on numerous occasions, stopped his show to point out that Trump tweeted about him.
Oliver’s team put together a super-cut of the embarrassing moments. They began with the moment after Trump’s 2019 State of the Union Address when he said that he would not stand for “socialism.” While the rest of the world may have been rolling their eyes at the tired attack on the left, Varney confessed he stood up and applauded.
“Well, that’s tellin’ ’em, Mr. President,” Varney said with a sparkle in his eyes.
When Trump’s son Eric joined the broadcast, Varney bragged about his father, “the president” occasionally mentioning Varney on Twitter. Eric Trump sat in either silent jealousy or genuine disinterest, it was unclear which.

‘We’ve entered a shame-free zone’: CNN’s Sciutto appalled by Trump’s ‘mind-boggling’ G7 corruption
CNN's Jim Sciutto on Friday did not mince words when talking about President Donald Trump's decision to host next year's G7 summit at his own golf course in Doral, Florida.
During a segment about the president's multiple corruption scandals, Sciutto described Trump's G7 gambit as the president "explicitly, publicly steering a taxpayer-funded government contract to [his] own business." He then asked former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti to comment on why this scandal might get Trump into hot legal water.
Deadly Turkey air strikes shatter Trump’s hours-old ‘ceasefire’ deal
Deadly Turkish air strikes Friday shattered an hours-old US-brokered deal to stop Ankara's military offensive against Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria.
The ceasefire announced late Thursday was meant to provide a pause for the evacuation of Kurdish fighters from the battleground border town of Ras al-Ain and other areas Turkey wants to control along its border with Syria.
The five-day suspension looked designed to help Turkey achieve its main territorial goals without fighting but its Syrian proxies continued to clash with Kurdish fighters Friday and an air strike killed five civilians.
Former Trump pal Donny Deutsch explains the president’s gamble on impeachment
MSNBC's Donny Deutsch has a theory about his old pal President Donald Trump and his latest strategy to wriggle out of trouble.
The "Morning Joe" contributor suspects the president, whom he used to know from their days in New York City, believes impeachment is inevitable, but he's confident that Republican senators won't remove him from office.
"Rev, I'm seeing a little bit of a different show here," Deutsch told the Rev. Al Sharpton. "You and I know Trump pretty well, or used to know Trump pretty well. I don't think there's any chance Mick Mulvaney went out there on his own."
Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, admitted during a press briefing that he held up congressionally approved aid to Ukraine in an effort to press the country to investigate a conspiracy theory about Democrats and the 2016 election.
