While the rest of us wonder if the man occupying the Oval Office has committed treason and the rest of the White House struggles to deal with a series of crises, Fox host Eric Bolling has declared the Trump administration a big success.
In the “Wake Up, America” commentary that closes the Cashin’ In show, Bolling gushed about Trump:
BOLLING: Making America better is what he is doing. Jobs which were planned for deportation are staying put, and criminal illegals who were planning to stay put are being deported. The economy is roaring back to life. Consumer confidence this week topped a 16-year high not seen since before 9/11. Home prices spiked to a 31-month high as well, and get this: Yesterday ended the quarter.

Give the man a chance, he’s doing great. What really matters to American families is the economy, and on that, he gets an A.
The former president took over in the depths of the worst recession since the Great Depression, as people worried the economic system as we knew it was collapsing. In eight years, Obama handed off an economy with a strong labor market, low unemployment, a huge housing recovery, vastly improved consumer confidence, and a tick up in average hourly earnings.
Is Bolling still in line for a Commerce Department job, as he was rumored to be? He sure acts like he’s hoping for it. Or maybe he’s got his eye on Sean Spicer’s job.

But Bolling’s approach here was clearly part of the Fox News Line of the Day, since it was repeated by multiple hosts over the weekend – idea being to promote the Pence White House as a “success”. If I didn’t know better, I’d say these guys are getting desperate to find a “win” in this mess somewhere.
Drumpf is a 70+ year old white guy with an R behind his name — that’s all Boring needs . . .
When Clinton left the White House the biggest problem this country had at that time was how are we going to spend the surplus. That problem lasted about as long as a snowball in hell under George W Bush.
Reminds of a CNN segment I saw last week where Fox alumna Alison Camerta interviewed diehard Trump supporters. All but 2 graded Trump an A (the exception gave Trump a B because nobody deserves an A).
They rationalized Trump’s failures pretty much parroting Trump’s own excuses. They struggled to articulate victories but weren’t deterred in their drooling admiration for the man.
The takeaway here is twofold.
One, no matter how bad things get the Trump diehards hate liberals more.
Two, the only thing that can derail his grassroots support is possibly a failure to deliver jobs to his legion of economic losers incompetent at transitioning into a modern economy. And I’m not even sure of this second point because they feel so entitled and are so quick to claim victimhood they may keep blaming ‘corrupt’ Washington.
