Donald Trump’s Russia scandal has gotten so bad, not even his most loyal new channel, Fox News, can come to his defense anymore.
Earlier today, a Fox News host suggested that there may have been even more people than we thought in the June 2016 meeting with the Russian lawyer, where Donald Trump Jr. tried to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. Fox stated that the latest and eighth person to have attended the meeting was Ike Kaveladze, an associate of Russian real estate magnate Aras Agalarov. Like the rest of us, the Outnumbered hosts were both disgusted and desensitized, exhausted by the constant reporting of Trump’s corrupt administration. Contributor Herman Cain reaction was pure disinterest:
“So what?” They have these names I can’t pronounce — so what?”
Co-host Harris Faulkner stated that it was in bad taste for the Trump administration to hold some of this information back, instead of just revealing the names all at once after word got out earlier this month. Faulker said:
“Then-candidate Mr. Trump, whether he knew about the meeting or not, had every right through his team to find out whatever opposition research he could, just like any other citizen does, as well, who would run. The drip-drip in all of this has turned out to be unfortunate.”
While a few panelists stated that viewers were seldom interested in this Russia scandal, one co-host blew up over this latest piece of information. Lisa Kennedy Montgomery wasn’t willing to let Trump Jr.’s Russian meeting get buried, and said:
“First of all, I’m sorry to be the lone skeptic on the couch. But I’m skeptical of politicians, I’m skeptical of people seeking power — and I think the fact that this story has changed, and now miraculously there’s been cell division and there were eight people in the room. How do we know there weren’t more? How do we know they didn’t get dirt on Hillary Clinton? (Just) because something is constitutional doesn’t mean that it’s right.
I’m sorry if I think that it’s wrong for either side to be getting dirt on an opponent from foreign governments like Russia and Ukraine.”
It was a perfect moment in which Trump’s dishonesty was brutally called out. You can watch Montgomery trash Trump and his inner circle below:
