Former Bernie Campaign Manager Rips Into Trump on Fox & Friends: He Has Turned WH Into a ‘Cesspool’

Former Bernie Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver appeared on Fox & Friends today, and he locked horns with Brian Kilmeade over why Donald Trump‘s presidency isn’t as great as the program makes it out to be. The two began by discussing Sanders’ impact on the 2016 election and the possible connotations for the upcoming midterm elections throughout the country. As Kilmeade moved the conversation towards Trump’s rising poll numbers and his recent political wins, Weaver reminded him, along with the Fox News audience, that the president has a knack for getting wrapped up in scandals and shooting himself in the foot.
“You can count on this president to muck it up again. That White House is in such disarray. There is so much dysfunction there, you read the story saying everybody is feeding on everybody else…That is really administration in disarray. He may have a good week now and Continue reading "Former Bernie Campaign Manager Rips Into Trump on Fox & Friends: He Has Turned WH Into a ‘Cesspool’"

Ex-CIA Officer Buck Sexton on John Kerry’s Meetings to Save Iran Deal: ‘Something We Expect From the Taliban’

Former Secretary of State John Kerry has been trying to rescue the Iran nuclear deal, meeting with foreign leaders while urging the U.S. to stay in. And one guest on Fox News likened Kerry’s actions to Taliban activity. Buck Sexton, a former CIA officer, made the remarks to host Brian Kilmeade Tuesday, condemning what he called “shadow diplomacy” by the ex-secretary of state. “This is something we expect from the Taliban to have a shadow government in place,”  Sexton said. “Not from our own former secretary of state. I mean, this is really beyond the pale, and, you know, to have meetings like this, this is not casual, this is not someone who’s just talking with his former counterparts. He’s negotiating from the other side of the table.” Within past weeks, Kerry has spoken with Italian EU official Federica Mogherini, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and Continue reading "Ex-CIA Officer Buck Sexton on John Kerry’s Meetings to Save Iran Deal: ‘Something We Expect From the Taliban’"

Brian Kilmeade Makes Impassioned Case For Torture on Trump’s Favorite Morning Show

As Gina Haspel prepares for her nomination process to be the next CIA Director, one of her most passionate defenders can be found on Fox & Friends every weekday morning: that’s Brian Kilmeade, who has expressed frustration with the opposition Haspel has faced from lawmakers wary of her role in the Iraq War era “enhanced interrogation program” (also known as torture). Haspel’s nomination has been a controversial one. She oversaw a “black site” in Thailand after the 9/11 attacks where terror suspects were tortured in accordance with the enhanced interrogation program. A Senate Intelligence Committee report concluded that the CIA’s methods amounted to torture, and included waterboarding, beating, forced confinement for extended periods of time, forced standing and nudity. In one interrogation Haspel oversaw, a detainee was stripped naked, hooded and shackled. He was then waterboarded, slammed repeatedly against a wall with a towel around his neck and Continue reading "Brian Kilmeade Makes Impassioned Case For Torture on Trump’s Favorite Morning Show"

Fox & Friends Backs CIA Director Nominee: She Should Be ‘Proud’ of ‘Enhanced Interrogation’ at Black Sites

Fox & Friends went to bat on Monday for Gina Haspel — President Donald Trump’s nominee for CIA Director who is set to face a challenging Senate confirmation hearing this week — defending the career agent against concerns over her ties to torture. Haspel’s nomination has been a controversial one, given her job overseeing a “black site” in Thailand after the 9/11 attacks where terror suspects were tortured using techniques like waterboarding and sleep deprivation. Now serving as deputy director of the FBI, a number of lawmakers have voiced concerns with her nomination, including Sen. John McCain, who called the U.S. torture program “one of the darkest chapters in American history.” On Fox & Friends, Brian Kilmeade brought up a recent report that Haspel sought to withdraw her nomination for CIA Director last week, fearing the process would damage her reputation. From there, the Fox & Continue reading "Fox & Friends Backs CIA Director Nominee: She Should Be ‘Proud’ of ‘Enhanced Interrogation’ at Black Sites"

Fox & Friends Blasts NBC For Corrected Report on Trump Lawyer: ‘They’re Upset He’s Creating So Many Jobs’

Fox & Friends slammed NBC News on Friday morning for the outlet’s botched report claiming federal investigators wiretapped Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen. NBC News issued a full correction to its report a few hours after publishing the initial bombshell, noting federal investigators were monitoring and keeping a log of Cohen’s calls — not listening in to their contents. Pretty big difference. And Fox & Friends noticed, laying into NBC News for its error. “It was such a big story,” Steve Doocy said. “It was on all the channels where they were talking about it until it was discovered that NBC got the story completely wrong.” The show played a clip of Ari Fleischer (not the best spokesperson for truth, but alas) claiming NBC News’s botched report has to do with the idea that “the whole velocity and direction of the press is to blame Donald Trump Continue reading "Fox & Friends Blasts NBC For Corrected Report on Trump Lawyer: ‘They’re Upset He’s Creating So Many Jobs’"

Judge Napolitano Fires Back at Giuliani Over Call to Shut Down Russia Probe: ‘That is a Dangerous Argument’

Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano fired back at Rudy Giuliani — and his client President Donald Trump — over their arguments that the Russia probe should be shut down because the Justice Department is corrupted. Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt asked Napolitano on Thursday morning about Giuliani’s argument that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “should end the Mueller probe because there is too much government misconduct.” “It reminded all of us there is no collusion,” Earhardt added, (a strange statement to make without any evidence). “So why is this investigation even happening?” “That is a dangerous argument to make,” Napolitano replied. “There are 90,000 people work in the Justice Department. There are 8,000 FBI agents. These people are doing the work of protecting our lives, our liberty, and our property.” “For him to say that the Justice Department is out of control or that the Continue reading "Judge Napolitano Fires Back at Giuliani Over Call to Shut Down Russia Probe: ‘That is a Dangerous Argument’"
