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"

Stuart Varney: If Media Keeps Up ‘Extreme’ Language, They’re Going to Get Somebody Killed

Fox Business host Stuart Varney believes the media is encouraging violence by using what he terms “extreme language” in the immigration debate. In a monologue during Varney & Co. on Thursday, the host quoted Rush Limbaugh — who said, of the talk on immigration, “if the media keeps this up, they’re going to get somebody killed.” “He’s right,” Varney said. “In my opinion, the language used in the immigration debate has been so extreme that it does indeed encourage violence.” Varney then cited the media’s use of the words, “Nazi, concentration camps, child internment camps, slave labor.” “The people using these words should think very carefully about what they’re doing,” Varney said. “A disagreement on immigration should not be an excuse to label your opponent as the most despicable human being on Earth. They’re fighting words. And they will be used to justify violence.” The Fox Continue reading "Stuart Varney: If Media Keeps Up ‘Extreme’ Language, They’re Going to Get Somebody Killed"

Stuart Varney: The Media ‘Will Never, Ever’ Report Positive News About Trump’s Economy

With President Donald Trump and several members of his administration (notably Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Director of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen) facing heavy criticism from both sides of the aisle over the administration’s policy of separating migrant children from their families at the border, Fox & Friends was in full spin mode on Monday. As part of the cheerleading session, Stuart Varney dropped by the Fox News morning show to lament the idea that — gosh darn it — the media just won’t give Trump his due praise for the state of the economy. “The media hates President Trump,” Varney said. “And will never, ever mention anything truly positive about the U.S. economy.” Varney added, “A surge in consumer spending. A job for everyone who wants one. Confidence in the future at historic highs. Unemployment at a generational low, and we’ve just about achieved four percent Continue reading "Stuart Varney: The Media ‘Will Never, Ever’ Report Positive News About Trump’s Economy"

Varney Interviews Virginia GOP Senate Nominee, Doesn’t Ask About Alt-Right Ties

Corey Stewart is known nationally for two things: his extensive ties to the alt-right, and having just won the Republican primary for Virginia’s Senate elections. Stewart appeared on Stuart Varney‘s Fox Business Network show on Wednesday, and the host forgot to ask about one of those. Stewart’s ties to the alt-right have been well documented. He’s called noted white nationalist and anti-Semite Paul Nehlen a “personal hero,” spoke at a right-wing rally alongside white supremacist Jason Kessler, the organizer of the deadly Charlottesville rally, and named an apparent neo-Nazi his campaign “Volunteer of the Week.” His ties to racists are so newsworthy that he was forced to disavow Nehlen earlier this month, and he has faced serious opposition from Republican party members and media commentators. Varney didn’t seem aware. “Sir, you are getting criticism for past support of confederate symbols and monuments, your response to that?” Continue reading "Varney Interviews Virginia GOP Senate Nominee, Doesn’t Ask About Alt-Right Ties"
