Griff Jenkins visited a Maryland diner this morning to talk about Donald Trump’s firing of James Comey. But when Jenkins’ interviewee questioned the timing and whether Comey was finding out too much information about Trump’s links to Russia – why, suddenly Jenkins had to move on.
As the first video, via Raw Story, shows below, the diner was not very supportive of Trump. He first told Jenkins that Trump “doesn’t understand” that being president is not like being in the golf business and “we’re not building buildings.” The diner also said, “We don’t have any leadership.” So Jenkins moved on to ask for “thumbs up or thumbs down” on Comey’s firing. Raw Story writes:
“I think it should have been done much earlier,” the diner opined. “I think — not to be too Machiavellian about it — why does it take such a long time for these guys to arrive at this conclusion. Is it because we’re getting too tight in finding out too much information linked to [Russian President Vladimir Putin]?”
Oops! “We’re gettin’ tight on time,” Jenkins said. He stood up and went to another diner.
The Raw Story video ends there. But FoxNews.com has more. In that video, the second one below, Jenkins had time to briefly chat with another diner who, though he questioned the timing, was more supportive of Fox’s Glorious Leader.
Watch the two videos below, from the May 11, 2017 Fox & Friends.
PS: just realised that President Trump’s voice seems to have trembled as he talked about why he considered Sally Yates to be “a person we didn’t know”. (interview on NBC).
We can sympathize with a right-wing propaganda factory like Fox News figuring how to scrub the stink out of this story. Along with Hannity, “Fox & Freinds” are the biggest Trump ass kissers on the network. They failed their hero by not properly vetting the man on the street to maintain the integrity of their Trumpland information bubble.
Surely, SURELY, these people understand that the sooner they disassociate themselves from Trump, the less stench they will carry in the inevitable aftermath.
