There are some cracks starting to appear at Fox state-run TV. Neil Cavuto actually just told the truth about Trump and his lies. You know Trump is in trouble when he starts losing Fox.
On Thursday, Fox News’ Neil Cavuto did a pretty strong segment about Trump and his constant lying.
On his show, Your World with Neil Cavuto, he went after Trump for attacking the media over “fake news” when he himself continues to put out contradictory statements on everything from Stormy Daniels to illegal voting.
“Now, I’m not saying you’re a liar,” Cavuto said. “You’re the president. You’re busy. I’m just having a devil of a time figuring out which news is fake. Let’s just say your own words on lots of stuff give me, shall I say, lots of pause.”
Cavuto’s frustration was sparked by Rudy Giuliani’s appearance on Sean Hannity on Wednesday night, where he admitted that Trump repaid Michael Cohen for the hush money payment to Stormy Daniels. Trump and the White House have repeatedly said that Trump knew nothing about that payment, and they’ve insisted that Trump had nothing to do with the money.
They lied. Trump lies constantly. And now, finally, even Fox is calling it out.
“Let me be clear, Mr. President,” Cavuto said. “How can you drain the swamp if you’re the one who keeps muddying the waters?”
“You didn’t know about the $130,000 payment to a porn star, until you did,” he continued. “Said you knew nothing about how your former lawyer handled this, until you acknowledged today that you were the guy behind the retainer payment that took care of this. You insist that money from the campaign or campaign contributions played no role in this transaction. Of that you’re sure. The thing is, not even 24 hours ago, sir, you couldn’t recall any of this.”
Cavuto ticked off a whole list of things Trump has lied about. Then he told Trump that it was ridiculous that he keeps calling the media fake news.
“You are right to say some of them are out to get you. But oftentimes they’re using your own words to bat you,” Cavuto said. “You probably might not care. But you should. I guess you’ve been too busy draining the swamp to stop and smell the stink you’re creating. That’s your doing. That’s your stink. Mr. President, that’s your swamp.”
