Trump Claims Being President Has Cost Him $2-3 Billion: It’s Worth It, ‘I’ve Done a Great Job’

On Fox and Friends on Thursday, President Trump was on air by phone for an extended interview covering several topics, which included at one point, naturally, his own wealth. Answering Brian Kilmeade about whether being President is worth the trouble, Trump said the job has probably cost him billions of dollars. Kilmeade prefaced his question with a litany of the president’s woes, including the recent New York Times report on his taxes his friends and associates facing jail, and so on. “Mr. President, big picture question, when you look at the scrutiny on your personal finances, and the taxes go back to your dad, when you see your lawyer that has to cut deals and the National Enquirer buddy of yours has to cut deals, CFO of your company has got immunity, and you see pressure of family is under and 50% of the country doesn’t like you, and 50% Continue reading "Trump Claims Being President Has Cost Him $2-3 Billion: It’s Worth It, ‘I’ve Done a Great Job’"

THE FIRST FAMILY
This wasn’t the first show listed, but The First Family, really ought to have had top billing. It’s just that on-brand. It’s a series about the lives of the various Trumps on- and off-screen.

Fox & Friends‘ Brian Kilmeade Stalked and Heckled into NYC Subway

A pair of activist comedians followed around Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade, lobbing hostile questions at him on Friday. If you are a public figure, after all, you may get questions with or without a camera when you are walking down a public street (In fact, Mediaite has used a roving paparazzi in the past as well). But they didn’t stop there. Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler, who are known as “The Good Liars,” then trailed Kilmeade into a NYC subway and encouraged fellow passengers to jeer at him in what increasingly felt like a potentially perilous situation for the Fox host. It started with Selvig posing for a selfie with a smiling Kilmeade. But it was clearly a set-up, with Selvig then asking Kilmeade if he was “accused of sexually harassing Continue reading "Fox & Friends‘ Brian Kilmeade Stalked and Heckled into NYC Subway"

Fox & Friends‘s Brian Kilmeade Hits Trump Economy: $21 Trillion in Debt ‘Bothers Me’

During one of Fox & Friends‘ regular moments touting President Donald Trump‘s booming economy, co-host Brian Kilmeade offered a notable fact check. After a restaurant patron in Florida told Steve Doocy that the current economy was the best of his lifetime, co-host Ainsley Earhart noted, “that’s pretty strong!” “Probably true,” reliable Trump booster Pete Hegseth said. “Except for the $21 trillion in debt,” Kilmeade deadpanned. “That kind of bothers me.” “Well that’s a whole thing,” Hegseth said. “You can only take care of one thing at a time, Brian.” “What’s one more trillion!” Earhardt joked. Trump’s tax plan and and massive budget spending deal from earlier this year ensured his administration amassed $1 trillion in debt by March. In August, the U.S. passed the $21.3 trillion mark, and the national deficit rose to $1.2 trillion in the fiscal year. Watch above, via Fox News.

Nicolle Wallace on Kilmeade Criticizing Trump for Mocking Ford: When You’ve Lost Fox News, ‘You’re Bleep-ed’

This morning on Fox & Friends, Brian Kilmeade knocked President Donald Trump for his mockery of Christine Blasey Ford‘s testimony, and Nicolle Wallace found this very telling. “The tactic of the president laying low has been lauded by all sides,” Kilmeade said. “Last night he chose to blow it as the FBI is handing in the report as early as today. I wonder about the wisdom––as much as the crowd loved it, I wonder about the wisdom tactically of him doing that.” Wallace played that clip this afternoon and said, “And when you’ve lost Fox News, you’re bleep-ed.” Mike Lupica said Fox News turning on Trump is a sign that he “screwed up.” “When there is even the mildest hint of criticism on fox News…” he added. Wallace observed that it’s particularly telling coming from Fox & Friends, “the ultimate safe space” for the Continue reading "Nicolle Wallace on Kilmeade Criticizing Trump for Mocking Ford: When You’ve Lost Fox News, ‘You’re Bleep-ed’"

Brian Kilmeade Pans Trump’s Mocking Christine Ford: ‘He Chose to Blow It’ After Previous Restraint

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade doesn’t think it was a good idea for Donald Trump to go after Christine Ford, even if it has more to do with political strategy than whether its the right or wrong thing to do. The president directly ridiculed Ford at a rally last night while the FBI continues to investigate the claims from her and other women regarding Brett Kavanaugh‘s alleged sexual misconduct. When Fox & Friends took note of this on Wednesday morning, Kilmeade didn’t think the attack was good for Trump in a tactical sense, especially since it’s quite different from the more restrained approach he took earlier in the Ford-Kavanaugh news cycle.
“The tactic of the president laying low has been lauded by all sides. Last night he chose to blow it as the FBI is handing in the report as early as today. I wonder about the wisdom, Continue reading "Brian Kilmeade Pans Trump’s Mocking Christine Ford: ‘He Chose to Blow It’ After Previous Restraint"

Brian Kilmeade Says Trump Didn’t Get Laughed at By United Nations: ‘Good, Unscripted Moment!’

The latest controversy surrounding President Donald Trump’s unintended laugh line at United Nations has become perfect cable news fodder. For example, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski called it a “significant moment” that signals a time where the world is laughing at the US President and that America’s become the butt of a big joke. Her take was not the only such critique one might find on the usual opinion-based news-ish programs, but enter Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade to quickly come to rescue the diplomatic reputation of the commander in chief. “I liked when everyone laughed afterward,” Kilmeade said before pivoting to assail presidential critics, adding he was “taken aback by the way other people said the world is laughing at us. I think they were having fun.” Some background? Well the U.N. General Assembly laughed at Trump within the first minute of his speech before the body, after a particularly Continue reading "Brian Kilmeade Says Trump Didn’t Get Laughed at By United Nations: ‘Good, Unscripted Moment!’"
