Happy Hour News Briefs
Our Stable Genius was on the Fox BIDNESS Channel and had a nutty.
This was the tweet that alerted me something was going on:
Trump is yelling into the phone about how Mueller “terminated the emails … he terminated them. They’re gone. And that’s illegal. That’s a crime.”
Bartiromo pretends to know what he’s talking about and tries to ask a question. Trump just keeps ranting over her. pic.twitter.com/yBK676eGmn

If you click on the tweet, it will take you to the thread on Twitter and you can see Vox’ Aaron Rupar live tweeting the segment. It was nuts. Prznint Stupid doesn’t want to talk about his economic policies, he wants to rant about WITCH HUNT, and as you can see Maria Bartiromo clearly doesn’t know what to do, and she certainly doesn’t push back.
Way to let the toddler scream and throw the groceries off the shelf and onto the floor, Maria!
Later, (after she gets a debriefing from the politbureau, er, Fox News Management -ALLEGEDLY!!1!) she guests on some Fox News program —remember, its News and Bidness are allegedly independent of each other — and pretended that Comrade Stupid’s melt-down was, you know, normal:
”The president is who is he, and that’s why he has his base and the loyal supporters that he has. He’s not afraid to say — to tell it the way it is. And he was very straightforward and I think that’s why people like him.”
Man, I wanna play Mad Libs with her. Wild improv skillz. Also: LOLwut?
Also: 25th Amendment.
The full interview is here. It goes off the rails right at the start.
