Trump went on an unhinged tirade on ‘Fox & Friends’ — here are the 5 craziest moments

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Friday came completely unglued during a bonkers interview on “Fox & Friends” in which he lashed out at his own former officials, spouted Russian-backed conspiracy theories, and even cast aspersions on one of his most trusted advisers.

Below are the five craziest moments in Trump’s interview.

1.) Trump repeats the insane Crowdstrike conspiracy theory that has been pushed by Russia.

One day after former National Security Council official Fiona Hill testified that Republican lawmakers needed to stop spreading misinformation about Ukraine designed to help Russia, the president did just that by spouting off the debunked conspiracy theory about the Democratic National Committee’s server being located in Ukraine.

“They have the server from the DNC!” Trump fumed.

“Who has the server?” asked co-host Brian Kilmeade.

“They gave the server to Crowdstrike, which is a company owned by a very wealthy Ukrainian,” the president insisted.

At this point, even co-host Steve Doocy tried to get the president to walk back the conspiratorial chatter.

“Are you sure they did that?” he asked.

“Well, that’s what the word is,” Trump replied.

2.) Trump condemns former American ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch for purportedly refusing to hang up his picture in her office.

The president took particular glee in attacking Yovanovitch, the former ambassador who was ousted after a concerted smear campaign run by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

“This ambassador that everyone says is so wonderful, she wouldn’t hang my picture in the embassy,” the president said. “This was not an angel, this woman, okay? And there were a lot of things that she did that I didn’t like.”

He also complained that Republicans didn’t attack her enough during impeachment hearings and said they only refused to do so because of her gender.

3.) Trump blames White House counselor Kellyanne Conway for her husband’s criticisms of his presidency.

Even though Kellyanne Conway has been one of Trump’s loyalest defenders, the president couldn’t help taking a dig at her over her husband George Conway, who has been a leading conservative voice in the call for impeachment.

“She must of done a number on him,” Trump said, referring to the Conways. “She must’ve done some bad things to him, because that man’s crazy.”

4.) Trump takes sole credit for China not turning Hong Kong into a nuclear wasteland.

Although the president has taken criticism for not speaking out more forcefully on the deteriorating human rights situation in Hong Kong, he insisted to “Fox & Friends” that he was the only thing stopping Chinese President Xi Jinping from massacring the entire city.

“If it weren’t for me, Hong Kong would’ve been obliterated in 14 minutes,” the president claimed, before adding, “We have to stand with Hong Kong, but I’m also standing with President Xi.”

5.) Trump bungles his own defense by making it sound like he encourages corrupt behavior.

Trump’s biggest flub came after co-host Steve Doocy said that European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland testified that there was a quid-pro-quo arrangement in which the president would only agree to a face-to-face meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky if he agreed to launch investigations into purported “corruption” that just happened to involve his political opponents.

While insisting that he’s sincerely working to fight corruption at home and abroad, Trump said, “I do want, always, corruption — I say that to anybody!”

Rick Santorum falls apart during CNN defense of Trump as fellow Republican Charlie Dent laughs

Published

on

As CNN contributor Rick Santorum struggled to defend Donald Trump's quid pro quo proposal to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday morning, his fellow Pennsylvania Republican, former Rep. Charlie Dent, laughed at his fumbling for answers.

Sitting down with "New Day" host John Berman, Santorum once again attempted to make the case that the president was withholding aid over Ukraine corruption and not because he was seeking dirt on political opponents -- and didn't fare well as Berman kept fact-checking him.

With the two former GOP lawmakers on split-screen, Santorum refused to concede that the president was asking for a personal favor during the phone-call that eventually led to a House impeachment inquiry into the president's actions.

Ukraine’s ambassador to Austria shreds Trump allies for giving Putin their ‘enthusiastic help’

Published

on

Olexander Scherba, who currently serves as Ukraine's ambassador to Austria, sent out a scathing tweet on Friday excoriating allies of President Donald Trump who seem hellbent on helping Russian President Vladimir Putin reassert Russia's dominance over Eastern Europe.

In his tweet, Scherba explained the scope of Putin's ambitions, which he said went far beyond seizing Ukrainian territory.

"Putin isn’t just fighting Ukraine," he wrote. "He is fighting the whole world order, created by Reagan."

The ambassador then turned his attention to American supporters of President Donald Trump who have been cheering Putin's actions.
