Eric Trump Warns Fox & Friends Hosts: If Democrats Take the House They ‘Will Investigate YOU’

First-son Eric Trump warned Fox News viewers today that Democrats will “investigate everybody” if they flip the House in the upcoming midterms. “If the House flips, word is that they’re gonna’ start investigating the Trump Organization, let alone the president and everybody around him,” host Brian Kilmeade said on Fox & Friends this morning. “How do you feel about that?” “You watch the level of harassment. If the House flips, they will be investigating you, they will investigate everybody,” Eric replied. “That’s what these people do. I mean, they weaponize a legal system. They will come after everybody, relentlessly. They’ll know there is nothing there, but it’s harass, it’s distract.” He continued:
“They will plant every story. I mean, we have seen. This I can’t tell you how long we have seen this for. We will get a letter from some senator. That letter is at The Washington Continue reading "Eric Trump Warns Fox & Friends Hosts: If Democrats Take the House They ‘Will Investigate YOU’"

Fox & Friends Goes Full Propaganda: If You Don’t Want Open Borders, ‘Vote for Republicans’

The coordination between the White House and Fox News has never worked more seamlessly. Perhaps credit is due to former FNC executive Bill Shine, who recently became Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications, but as Juan Williams recently admitted, Fox News and the White House appear to be “joined at the hip” in terms of political messaging. Take for example news of a sharp increase in illegal immigration at the U.S. southern border. President Trump began tweeting about this issue yesterday, and like the loyal sycophants that their critics see them as, Fox & Friends began amplifying that rhetoric by design. Fox News correspondent Griff Jenkins covered the spike in immigration over the past few months, but framed this not in a manner critical of the current administration (as they did under Obama) but rather as a scare tactic designed to get out the vote. (Side note: the Continue reading "Fox & Friends Goes Full Propaganda: If You Don’t Want Open Borders, ‘Vote for Republicans’"

Trump Slams AP’s ‘Fake News’ Headline After Fox & Friends Calls it ‘Misleading,’ ‘Inaccurate’

President Trump is apparently watching Fox & Friends again, judging by how he’s following their lead and criticizing Associated Press over a headline they came up with from their interview with him. Trump kicked off his day by indulging in his favorite hobby: attacking the “FAKE NEWS!” Let’s put this into context, shall we? Trump was asked yesterday if he would accept any responsibility in the event that Republicans lose the House of Representatives in the midterm elections. “No, I think I’m helping people,” Trump responded. “They would say that in the old days that if you got the support of a president or if you’ve got the support of somebody it would be nice to have, but it meant nothing, Continue reading "Trump Slams AP’s ‘Fake News’ Headline After Fox & Friends Calls it ‘Misleading,’ ‘Inaccurate’"

Lindsey Graham Jokes DNA Test Will Reveal He’s Iranian: ‘That Would Be, Like, Terrible’

A day after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) released a DNA test to tamp down debate over her heritage, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) vowed to take a test of his own, joking that he was concerned about the potential results. “I’ll probably be Iranian. That would be like terrible,” he said during a Fox & Friends appearance Tuesday morning. As the show’s co-hosts laughed along with Graham at the racist remark, Brian Kilmeade jumped in to add, “They’re great people. Just bad leaders.” “Yeah, bad leaders,” Graham replied. “I’m not in the ayatollah branch.” Graham is being welcomed back to the program within the coming weeks to reveal the results of his test, which he claims may indicate he has more Native American background than Warrren. “I’ve been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian,” he said. “It may all be just talk, but you’re going to find out Continue reading "Lindsey Graham Jokes DNA Test Will Reveal He’s Iranian: ‘That Would Be, Like, Terrible’"

Lindsay Graham: I Can Never Do Business With Saudi Arabia As Long As MBS is In Charge

Mohammad Bin Salman is the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, and ostensibly the member of the Royal Family with whom the Trump administration enjoys the closest relationship. He is often referred to as MBS in cable news shorthand, and deteriorating diplomatic relations between the United States and the Saudis came up in conversation today when Senator Lindsay Graham visited the “curvy couch” of Fox & Friends. The US-Saudi relationship is currently in question given the apparent assassination of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi operatives at their Istanbul-based consulate, which has been reported as an interrogation gone wrong. (The killing of journalists is typically frowned upon in free and democratic societies.) When Graham was prompted by host Brian Kilmeade to discuss the current situation, Graham let loose. “Nothing happens in Saudia Arabia without MBS knowing about it,” then adding “he’s on a bad track.” He then said “I can never do business Continue reading "Lindsay Graham: I Can Never Do Business With Saudi Arabia As Long As MBS is In Charge"

Fox & Friends Fears Alec Baldwin Wants Violent Revolution After He Calls to Vote Out GOP

Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade and NRATV’s Dan Bongino voiced concern over a violent revolution starting after actor Alec Baldwin called for Democrats to vote out the current GOP government. “In an orderly and formal way, and lawful way, we need to overthrow the government of the United States under Donald Trump,” the Saturday Night Live star said while speaking to New Hampshire’s Democratic Party. “How unbelievable is it that the people that the Democratic Party New Hampshire fundraising arm thought that Alec Baldwin would have the right message?” Kilmeade said while responding to the clip of Baldwin’s speech. “Do you think that’s the right message for Democrats — to overthrow the government?” Bongino, a three-times failed congressional candidate and a former NYPD cop, voiced similar worry over Baldwin’s rhetoric. “I don’t know who I am more embarrassed for, Alec Baldwin or as you guys just said the Democrat Continue reading "Fox & Friends Fears Alec Baldwin Wants Violent Revolution After He Calls to Vote Out GOP"

Fox & Friends Completely Fawns Over Trump’s 60 Minutes Interview: Never More Confident

One of the most fascinating media dynamics at play during the Trump administration is watching cable news programs react to the news with the knowledge that President Donald Trump is likely watching their show. It is not crazy to see that hosts are tailoring their commentary to an audience of one: the Commander in Chief who is reported to watch many hours of cable news each day. Take for example this morning’s Fox & Friends (a show that Trump had long been a regular guest on before he ran for office) and the lavish praise the provided in reaction to last night’s 60 Minutes interview. Fox News morning show’s reaction stood in stark contrast to Morning Joe’s “unfit to lead” and he’s a big baby criticism. Trump is almost certain to delight on how Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, each took turns praising the president or amplifying Continue reading "Fox & Friends Completely Fawns Over Trump’s 60 Minutes Interview: Never More Confident"
