Fox & Friends hosts deflated after legal analyst drops the hammer on Trump: ‘The law is not on the president’s side’

Published

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Thursday delivered some sobering news to the hosts of “Fox & Friends,” who did their best to spin Wednesday’s impeachment hearings as a win for President Donald Trump.

During an interview, co-host Ainsley Earhardt argued that much of the testimony given by witnesses Bill Taylor and George Kent revolved around merely their opinions of the president’s actions in withholding aid from Ukraine.

“Everybody does have their own opinion,” he acknowledged. “But… there doesn’t seem to be any dispute that the president wanted dirt on Biden and the president was willing to hold up military aid in order to get it.”

Co-host Brian Kilmeade then interjected to say that Trump should have been asking Ukraine to investigate the Bidens — but Napolitano stopped him dead in his tracks.

“The law is not on the president’s side,” he said. “The law says asking for a campaign favor, whether it arrives or not…”

“But it’s not a campaign favor!” Kilmeade objected.

“Well that depends on how you look at it,” Napolitano replied. “Is he investigating 2016 or does he want dirt on Biden… for 2020?”

Earhardt then tried to claim that Trump couldn’t have been engaging in extortion because Ukraine eventually received its money.

“The delay is the quid pro quo,” he replied. “The delay of 55 days knowing that the Russians were at the border.”

"The View" co-host Meghan McCain frequently cites politically themed T-shirts for sale online to take the public temperature about any given topic, but she didn't like that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi quickly started selling shirts based on her viral encounter with a conservative reporter.

The California Democrat unloaded on Sinclair Broadcasting reporter James Rosen, who asked if the impeachment process was based on her supposed hatred of President Donald Trump, and Pelosi capped off her scolding with the warning, "Don't mess with me."

"She did answer it masterfully," McCain said, "the problem is now she's selling T-shirts that say #don'tmesswithnancy. For $39, you can buy a T-shirt."

Trump in 2014 fantasized about Obama falling apart emotionally if he got impeached: ‘He’d be a mess!’

Published

President Donald Trump has been angrily obsessing over House impeachment hearings -- just like he imagined former President Barack Obama would do if Republicans impeached him back in 2014.

Media Matters this week dug up an old "Fox & Friends" interview with Trump in which he mused over whether Obama secretly wanted to be impeached to boost his poll numbers, similar to what happened with former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
