‘Not that articulate’: Fox News attacks Obama for slamming Trump’s pandemic response

Published

on

The hosts of Fox & Friends on Sunday lashed out at former President Barack Obama after he criticized President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Obama made the remarks while delivering a commencement address by video to 78 historically black colleges on Saturday.

“This pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing. A lot of them aren’t even pretending to be in charge,” Obama said without mentioning Trump’s name.

On Sunday, Fox & Friends took aim at the former president.

“The more I listen to it the weirder it gets,” host Jedidiah Bila said. “When you first listen to it, you almost forget that it’s a commencement speech. You say, oh, this is President Obama, you know, giving some sort of political speech, you know, trying to say that the Trump administration is divisive.”

“But when you think about it,” the host continued. “It’s supposed to be motivational, positive, it’s supposed to be about the graduates. This was not the time for what he’s doing. This was not the time to say, oh, this leadership isn’t doing a great job or adults don’t always know what they’re doing.”

Bila called Obama’s speech “depressing” and “inappropriate.”

Co-host Pete Hegseth went on to gripe that Obama is not as “articulate” as many people think.

“Time and time again, he talks like a political leftist,” Hegseth complained. “These Democrat governors feel like we’re in charge, we’re the experts and Donald Trump’s got it all wrong. It’s amazing.”

“And by the way, Barack Obama’s not all that articulate,” he added. “When he reads off a teleprompter, he can be inspiring or off of a speech. But when he’s impromptu, the ums and the ahs, it’s impossible to listen to.”

Here’s how bad things are for Trump after the Supreme Court ruling: columnist

Published

on

In a piece for Vanity Fair, columnist Eric Lutz addressed the degree to which President Donald Trump is in trouble after the ruling by the Supreme Court on his financial records.

Trump has spent the better part of four years fighting any transparency about his finances and taxes, which many have suspected might reveal illegal activity.

"He's not going to release his tax returns," said senior adviser Kellyanne Conway in 2017. "We litigated this all through the election. People didn't care."

Trump gets advice from golfing buddies and right-wing Twitter as America faces a ‘crisis of truth’: op-ed

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Thursday, columnist Michael Gerson contends that President Trump is running the country through the prism of the "right-wing information bubble."

"Trump is not only using this right-wing information bubble to exploit his supporters," Gerson writes. "He also seems, increasingly, to have taken up residence there. As his failures have multiplied, his hold on political reality has loosened. Trump has become our boy in the bubble, with an intellectual immune system too weak for him to survive exposure to reality."

All sources of dissent and critical thinking have been removed systematically removed from his administration -- — posts formerly held by Rex Tillerson, James Mattis and Dan Coats, have now been replaced by sycophants, according to Gerson.

‘Another hoax’: Trump whines and rambles about Supreme Court and New York in latest meeting

Published

on

After spending most of the day whining on Twitter, President Donald Trump spoke to the press from the White House Thursday afternoon to call questions about his taxes and financial documents a "witch hunt."

Trump has used the term to reference the Russia scandal, the Ukraine scandal, cases against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, his friend Roger Stone and any other topics he chooses on any given day.

"Do you have a reaction to the Supreme Court rulings today?" asked a reporter that sounded like CNN's Kaitlan Collins.

"The rulings we're basically starting all over again," Trump said. "This is a political witch-hunt... it's a witch-hunt, it's a hoax, just like the Mueller investigation... this is purely political..."
