Fox News’ Ed Henry: Economy Doing Really Well Under Trump, But ‘Wasn’t the Table Set by Barack Obama?’

As the hosts of Fox & Friends talked about the booming Trump economy this morning, Pete Hegseth said that Democrats clearly don’t want to talk about the economy because of how well it’s doing. He criticized former President Barack Obama for trying to take credit, but Ed Henry jumped in and said, “You’ve read the numbers, I’m sure. Barack Obama created more jobs in his final 21 months than President Trump has created in his first 21.” Henry added, “I’m not saying this President inherited it, but would you acknowledge that he was handed a better economy than Barack Obama got?” Hegseth responded, “Here’s what I’ll acknowledge. Four million new jobs, over four million less people on food stamps. To me, that is a reflection of a President that puts business and the private sector ahead of government assistance and bailouts.” Henry said, “He was handed a Continue reading "Fox News’ Ed Henry: Economy Doing Really Well Under Trump, But ‘Wasn’t the Table Set by Barack Obama?’"

Fox Business Host Stuart Varney Asks Trump if Aides Try to Confiscate His Phone to Stop the Tweeting

President Donald Trump gave an interview to Fox Business on Wednesday, the latest stop on his media blitz, and Stuart Varney asked if aides ever tried to confiscate his phone to stop him from tweeting. “Has anybody ever said to you, ‘Mr. President, let me have your phone, I want to take your phone away, for just a brief shining moment, we don’t want any more of these tweets.’ Has anyone ever tried that?” Varney asked. “No,” Trump replied. “It’s a way of getting out the message.” “Look we have fake news, everyone’s fake,” Trump continued, before suggesting that “some of the people on Fox” fall into that category (not Varney). “There’s so much misinformation put out, that’s my only form of communicating, really, aside from doing a press conference every hour,” he said. Trump complained about the headline on his interview with the Associated Press, which Continue reading "Fox Business Host Stuart Varney Asks Trump if Aides Try to Confiscate His Phone to Stop the Tweeting"

Fox Business’ Stuart Varney: Christine Ford is ‘Undermining the Integrity of the Court’

During the first break of the Christine FordBrett Kavanaugh hearing, Fox Business’ Stuart Varney questioned why prosecutor Rachel Mitchell was there in the first place.
“Why is it that when someone is perhaps in the process of ruining the career of a reputation of a man nominated to the Supreme Court––why is it that someone who is, in many ways, undermining the integrity of the court and the nominee, why can’t that person be questioned vigorously? Why do we have to step back and with absolute maximum caution have her interviewed by another woman?”
“I think it’s because of the times in which we live,” Judge Andrew Napolitano answered, bringing up the infamous Anita Hill hearing. He said the Republicans likely doubt “even a successful cross-examination by any one of the eleven white male Republicans on Dr. Ford would cause blowback to the political career of whoever Continue reading "Fox Business’ Stuart Varney: Christine Ford is ‘Undermining the Integrity of the Court’"

Fox’s Napolitano Says Christine Ford Comes Off With ‘Great Credibility’: ‘At This Point, She is 100%’

After the Senate Judiciary Committee broke for their first recess, Fox News judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney began the panel discussion by asking Napolitano Ford came across with “credibility.” “With great credibility,” Napolitano responded. “With a serious intellect and with appropriate emotion. And at this point, she is 100%. No one has laid a glove on her and she’s absolutely believable in my opinion” Varney noted that during her opening statement, Ford was “close to tears” and was “frail,” something Napolitano agreed with. “I thought that that was rational to see that, given what she was talking about,” Napolitano told Varney. “I mean, she went through in vivid and graphic detail what she says happened. She’s absolutely certain that the person who did this to her was Brett Kavanaugh. Her memory of events Continue reading "Fox’s Napolitano Says Christine Ford Comes Off With ‘Great Credibility’: ‘At This Point, She is 100%’"

Fox’s Stuart Varney Says NFL Players Who Protest Shouldn’t Get Paid: They’re ‘Biting the Hand That Feeds Them’

Fox Business’s Stuart Varney declared on Friday that he agrees 100 percent with President Donald Trump‘s assessment of NFL players who kneel, arguing they should not be paid if they protest during the national anthem. Speaking to Fox Business colleague Maria Bartiromo, Varney said of the most recent wave of NFL protesting that it “looks to me like another season begins and everybody loses.” Varney went on to explain that no disciplinary action will be taken against these players because the NFL is still in talks with the unions. “I Continue reading "Fox’s Stuart Varney Says NFL Players Who Protest Shouldn’t Get Paid: They’re ‘Biting the Hand That Feeds Them’"

Candace Owens Claims on Fox That Antifa Refuses to Shower as Political Statement: ‘They Smell’

Fox Business’ Stuart Varney was gushing on Wednesday when he spoke to Candace Owens about how she and Charlie Kirk were antagonized by Antifa earlier this week. The Turning Point USA organizer began the conversation by recalling how she and Kirk were “ambushed” at a Philadelphia cafe, and they underestimated how intense things would get. Owens claims the Antifa “look” is unhygienic and strange.
CO: “They have certain symbols, they also have a certain look if you look at the photos. They are not showered, they have very bright colored hair, and they have Antifa symbols.” SV: “They don’t shower? They don’t bathe?” CO: “Yeah. It’s a part of them trying saying they have issues of society and part of distancing themselves from what they deem a corrupt society is their appearance, they don’t bathe, they’re not clean…” SV: “So membership of that group Continue reading "Candace Owens Claims on Fox That Antifa Refuses to Shower as Political Statement: ‘They Smell’"

John Oliver Skewers ‘F*cking Monster’ Stuart Varney For Callous Child Migrant Coverage

Last Week Tonight‘s John Oliver took aim at Fox Business’ Stuart Varney on Sunday for trying to deflect about detained migrant families. Oliver played a clip in which Varney complained to Fox & Friends this week that the media was overly focused on “children in cages.” “The real big story that affects everybody in America is the success of the president’s tax cut package and what it’s done for our economy,” he argued. Oliver reacted: “That deflection technique doesn’t really work when the thing you’re deflecting from is children in cages,” he said. “If a realtor selling a house were to say, ‘Why are we talking about the children in cages? The kitchen has marble counter tops.’ The only acceptable response would be, ‘Because they’re children and they’re in cages. Someone needs to let them out, you fucking monster!’” Oliver condemned Varney’s coverage in the wider Continue reading "John Oliver Skewers ‘F*cking Monster’ Stuart Varney For Callous Child Migrant Coverage"
