‘Fox & Friends’ Completely Downplays Bombshell Revelations From John Bolton’s Book
The morning after it was revealed that former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book claims President Donald Trump tied military aid to Ukraine investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Trump’s favorite morning show Fox & Friends downplayed the bombshell while doing everything they could to defend Trump.
Co-host Steve Doocy, who in September said it would be “off-the-rails wrong” if Trump said he’d give Ukraine money only if Ukraine investigated Biden, was singing a different tune in light of the Bolton blockbuster. “But we heard him say in the transcript he wanted President Zelensky to look into the Bidens and what happened in 2016, so is this a big, big, big story?” Doocy wondered aloud.
The timing of the Bolton manuscript leak, which comes as the president’s defense team is in the middle of their arguments in the Senate impeachment trial, was also a major point of contention. After Doocy sarcastically said it’s “gotta be a coincidence” that this dropped before senators decide to allow additional witnesses, Fox News contributor Dan Bongino decided to invoke children’s toy from the ‘80s, for some reason.
