Fox’s Your World show discussed British lawmakers’ debate over banning Donald Trump not with any kind of expert on the subject but with Robin Leach, the British former host of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous who lives in and writes about Las Vegas entertainment.
Cavuto opened the discussion by saying, "I so needed Robin Leach."
Predictably, Leach opposed the ban. He told Cavuto, “I think they’re completely out of their teapot minds” to consider banning Trump because of his plan to ban Muslims. “Three and a half hours of pontificating hyperbole with enough hot air to float the Goodyear blimp over the London wheel. This is absolutely ridiculous. This is not the England that I know, sorry Donald."
Leach opined that it would “maybe” be better to ban Justin Bieber. “Donald at least brings business deals to Great Britain,” Leach said. “The whole thing is ridiculous, Neil. It's an excuse for overweight and overdrinking politicians from the Labor Party to stand up and for once be heard in a chamber where they shouldn't even be working."
Cavuto chuckled and said, "I would think an empire past or present has more important things to do."
"Of course they do,” Leach agreed. “To spend three and a half hours talking about Donald Trump may be very good for just one man, Donald, but nobody else cares."
And what Fox News political discussion would be complete without bashing at least one Democrat? In this case, it was Bernie Sanders. "When you have a Communist Mayor of London, and you have a Socialist party like Bernie Sanders running rampant, of course they're going to find things to distract from the real issues at hand," Leach sneered.
Cavuto chuckled again and said, "I knew you could sort through this nonsense as only you can."

Also, as to your “Fox News isn’t even telling 1/2 the truth” comment, I think you’re giving them entirely too much credit with “1/2.” If they tell the truth even 1 time out of 10, I’d be very surprised.
*For what it’s worth, the “Less Britain” or “Little Britain” refers to the French region known as Brittany.
I always say it isn’t what Fox News tells you that you need to worry about but all the inconvenient facts they leave out. In this case, Cavuto and Leach ignore the fact the Parliamentary debate is being driven by a petition signed by over 600,000 Britains. Ignoring that single fact allows them to claim there is no broad based support for the discussion and treat it in a non-serious manner.
The context is there is British law preventing hate speech which a hateful bigot like Trump fits like a glove. I watched the debate. Even Trump’s conservative supporters pretty much admitted his hateful bigotry fit. The defense of Trump was the embarrassment of banning an American President.
Fox News isn’t even telling 1/2 the truth.
