President Trump has greatly enjoyed and benefited from having his own personal propaganda network at FOX News – but cracks are starting to appear in the woodwork.
FOX’s top political editor, Chris Stirewalt, tore into the President in a rare show of vitriol from a man who probably considers himself a Principled Conservative (TM) – meaning someone who doesn’t mind the racism and xenophobic race-baiting, the plutocratic corruption, the sexual abuse, or the attacks on our free press but is absolutely beside himself at the thought of any threat to America’s hegemonic power and the international alliances which prop it up.
In an appearance on “FOX News @ Night,” Stirewalt said that there was no point in Republicans trying to convince Trump to behave himself while he’s in Europe for the NATO summit because even though Congress has forced him to impose sanctions on Russia, it doesn’t matter because he’s going to fly in like “a seagull” and will “defecate on everything.”
“And the Republicans who say, ‘Well, we have a broad foreign policy apparatus and we forced him to impose these sanctions, and we forced him to do these things.’ He’s going to fly into Brussels like a seagull. He is going to defecate all over everything — squawk and fly away is what he’s going to do in Brussels.”
Considering that the President began immediately attacking and insulting our German allies as soon as he arrived at the NATO summit, accusing the rest of the alliance of not paying their fair share and accusing the Germans of colluding with the Russians because of how much natural gas they purchase from Russia – which is where most of Eastern Europe gets their gas.
It’s very unusual for a FOX figure to be so openly disparaging of the President, let alone for an editor to insult him in such a vulgar fashion, and it’s a clear sign that even Republicans are starting to get tired of his ridiculous antics.
