Except for the hour or so in the morning that I’m able to watch ‘Fox & Friends’, and then Tucker and Hannity later on at night, I’ve pretty much given up on watching Fox News. Most of the other programming has come to differ very little from what you’d expect to see on MS’LSD’ or the ‘Crappy News Network’ (CNN). And while I wasn’t home to watch the Comey circus, and likely wouldn’t have even if I had been, Thursday on Fox News Channel’s special coverage of the much heralded testimony, “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace said while Comey’s testimony was good news legally for President Donald Trump, “politically” he thought it was “very damaging.” Frankly, I’m not sure how it is that Wallace ever came to be thought of as someone worth listening to. Granted, he’s been around a long time but since when does longevity equate to knowing even the slightest about the topic on which you are speaking? It’s like every time he opens his mouth, shit falls out.
Anyway, it was in discussing Comey and his rather bizarre testimony that Wallace said “If I were Donald Trump’s lawyer I’d be pretty happy, because he repeatedly said up to the day he was fired, Comey said that there was no evidence that led to an investigation of Donald Trump. He was not under investigation and on the question of obstruction of justice, while he said that was an open question, that will have to be decided by the special counsel Robert Muller. He certainly didn’t indicate that he viewed it as obstruction of justice or at least a prosecutable case. He said he had no doubt that Trump was directing him to end the investigation, but as I say, as a lawyer, I would take some solace in both of those. My guess is when Marc Kasowitz, the president’s lawyer comes out sometime between 1:30 and 2:00 today, he’s going to declare victory and say Comey cleared Trump. And in a legal sense, you could say that he did.”
Wallace then continued by saying, “Politically, I thought it was very damaging to the president. As has been pointed out by Shannon repeatedly, James Comey called the president a liar, said that he lied about the FBI was in disarray, that he defamed him and the FBI, said that the reason he kept those kinds of notes in the first place is that he thought that this was the kind of man who would lie about those kinds of things. It’s not good stuff to have said on national television. And as been noted before, I think the strongest point about Flynn and why it what was so improper what the president said about Flynn in that Oval Office meeting on February 14, as you said, why on earth would you kick out the attorney general, the vice president, and the chief of staff if it was going to be something innocent? That was a very strong evidence.” Wallace is taking what Comey said as being some kind of recording of the actual events, which it is not. He is a leaker and a liar.
Evidence, Chris? Evidence of what, exactly? That Trump took Comey out behind the woodshed? Let’s not forget the FBI director works for the Executive Branch and Trump is the current head of the Executive Branch. I think we can now all agree that Comey is nothing of not a liar. The FBI can have a three hour meeting with Hitlery with, apparently, not take a single solitary note being made despite the fact that Hitlery has the reputation of being a congenital liar? Oh, and ask the boys of Benghazi about Hitlery’s truthfulness. And yet he feels the need to take notes during his Trump meeting because Trump might not tell the truth. President Trump can legally fire and hire anyone he chooses and is well within his right to stop any investigation. Yet President Trump didn’t stop the Flynn or the Russian investigations! There is no crime and there is no obstruction of justice. Fox seems to be increasing its liberal slant to how it presents the ‘news’ with fewer and fewer exceptions.
Look, what this was was nothing more that Comey exercising some CYA! Wallace is another one of the ‘NeverTrumper’ crowd currently in the employ of Fox News. He has had nothing but contempt for Trump from the very beginning and was quick to give Comey a pass. I mean after one meeting and Comey felt that Trump would lie? And yet he says the Trump did not try to influence or stop the investigations. Trump said he hoped he would let it go? Oh and by the way Trump was never under investigation. What a fraud Comey is! What a bunch of bull. Wallace differs very little from those old ‘Barbie’ dolls with the little string you pulled that made them talk. I was disgusted when listening to the Fox crowd who were generally promoting the idea that it was a total disaster for Trump and there was clearly more evidence in need of being investigated. CNN and MSNBC were far less confident of the damage and generally they felt it a victory for Trump.
Fox News is headed down the tubes and Wallace is out front leading the way! He ran one of the Presidential Debates and, if I remember correctly, it was a debacle! I can only watch a couple of ‘commentators’ without wondering what the hell they’re talking about. Wallace denigrates Trump every chance he gets, and has been, essentially, ever since Trump first announced he would be running. But Trump is far from the only Republican that Wallace enjoys attacking. Whenever he has any conservative guest on his Sunday show, he tries to destroy them. When he moderated the debate he closed by asking Trump if he would accept the election results. Why didn’t he ask Hitlery the same question? Because he thought Hitlery was going to win in a landslide. As it turns out it is Hitlery and her basket of deplorable followers who are refusing to accept the “peaceful transfer of power” our country has been recognized for since the very first ‘passing of the baton’ to the successor.
Wallace sprang straight out of the state-controlled media cesspool, the son of a well-known liar and master practitioner of ambush journalism, and has apparently now gotten to the point in his ‘career’ where he no longer feels the need to hide the fact that he’s little more than a left wing, Democrat Party hack. And I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to hear that he voted for Hitlery. He’s the perfect example of how it is that Fox News is no longer interested in being ‘fair and balanced’. His ‘analysis’ of Comey’s testimony only makes sense in a world where Comey would have some level of credibility. Instead, he revealed himself to be a liar while simultaneously unmasking himself as a leaker, admitted his predispositions to the sitting president, and also displayed both his politicization and lack of understanding of his authority under two administrations. And Wallace thinks this was damaging to the president? Good grief. And he calls himself an objective journalist?
As I said, Wallace is most certainly his father’s son. He couldn’t find a tree if you parachuted him into the middle of a forest. But he does appear to be what the ‘new’ Fox owners want as they form ‘another left-wing liberal outlet’. It started some time ago, I no longer even watch Wallace’s Sunday show, I stopped when he had 3 of 4 very hard left liberals on his ‘panel’ with the 4th being an ‘ think I’m a conservative’. This is just more of the same, I don’t believe Fox any longer. Wallace is really no more than a mouthpiece for his new bosses at Fox. He’s nothing but a tool for the ‘establishment’. From what I’ve seen there was nothing in Comey’s testimony that was damaging to Trump. The fact that Lynch was covering up for Hitlery is something those like Wallace in the state-controlled media don’t want to talk ablout, but the Russians? That’s something they’re willing to report on 24/7/365! Reminds me of the many times when the media said that Trump’s campaign was dead.
Fox News wonders why they are no longer #1 in the ratings. Here’s a hint:
Baier (Stealth NeverTrumper – We decide what to report so you can’t decide, unfair and unbalanced)
Cavuto (Globalist NeverTrumper)
Krauthammer (Neo-con NeverTrumper)
NeverTrumpers, Democrats, RINOs, Neo-cons and Globalist Shills all. They’ve lost us and they shouldn’t expect us back anytime soon.
