Today on Neal Cavuto’s FOX program the host did something that you rarely see on the station that helped create Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy. Cavuto proceeded to politely destroy the arguments made by the President’s most loyal
Congressional lapdog, Devin Nunes:
That subject came up on Friday afternoon’s edition of Your World with Neil Cavuto, as Nunes phoned in to parrot the Flynn team’s talking points.
First, Nunes insisted that Flynn didn’t lie, and that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn didn’t think he’d lied at the time.
Cavuto said, “I know how much you honor the guy, praise the guy, very illustrious career. But he admitted he lied, he did lie. He told investigators he lied. That’s just the reality, right?”
“Right, but it’s also called ‘entrapment,’ If he admitted he lied in the investigation…” Nunes replied.
“No one had a gun to his head, though, sir, you know what I’m saying?” Cavuto interrupted.
Then there was Laura Ingraham. On her segment she blasted Trump’s absurd claims on the border wall:
“I must have missed the wall being built. What wall?” Ingraham commented. After one of the guests began to defend Trump, Ingraham insisted that “that’s not a wall. Stop saying it’s a wall. There’s no wall. If you want a wall, say we don’t have a wall.”
She later added, “I know it’s bad cause he made the promise but they’re not building the wall so you gotta stop saying that!”
Then there is the famous Conservative, Ann Coulter. She also ripped into The Donald’s border wall claims:
“The White House failed miserably to achieve its objectives on funding for a border wall, receiving relative peanuts,” the Post wrote of the president’s boasts about the wall earlier this year. “It sought $25 billion but ended up with 5 percent of that. Moreover, the money came with strings attached so that it could be used only for fencing, not the ‘great’ and ‘beautiful wall’ promised by Trump.”
Coulter shared the Post’s assessment and accused Trump of trying to trick his supporters into believing the wall had actually been built.
Then there was Tucker Carlson. His views on Trump’s inability to get things were made just one week ago:
“His chief promises were that he would build the wall, defund planned parenthood, and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things,” the notorious Fox News host continued, before attributing the reason to perhaps Trump’s inability to keep focus.
“I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus,” he continued. “I don’t think Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him.”…“It’s mostly his fault that he hasn’t achieved those things,” Carlson said, referring to the campaign promises he mentioned earlier. “[He] knows very little about the legislative process, hasn’t learned anything, hasn’t surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasn’t done all the things you need to do.”
Sounds like a pattern to me. And if it continues Donald Trump will be out of office very soon.
