In case you hadn’t heard, in an exclusive interview with ABC News yesterday, Donald Trump flat out admitted that he was more than willing to accept foreign meddling again, this time into the 2020 election, if he thought it could help him in any way. Since then, he’s even gone off on one of his trademark Twitter rants about how he’s not really doing anything wrong.

But it seems that even some of his staunchest supporters are beginning to question their blind loyalty to the man after he blatantly admitted that’s he’s cool with breaking the law as long as it gets him what he wants.

Donald Trump’s very own prized and precious Fox News Network is begging him to take that shit back in an appearance on his favorite TV network.


“Put it this way — nothing is free in this world,” Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade began. “You don’t want a foreign government or foreign entity giving you information because they will want something back. If anybody knows that it is the president. There is no free lunch. If someone wants information, then they’re going to want influence. I think the president has to clarify that.”

Kilmeade informed viewers that Donald is supposed to be calling into the show Friday morning, and called on the president to use that opportunity to clean up his remarks.

“I’m glad he is coming on tomorrow,” Kilmeade stated. “He opened himself wide up to attacks. I think you agree — if China does say, ‘Hey, President Trump, I have got information on Pete Buttigieg — because we know in South Bend, you can get up to a lot of no good and a lot of things going on there — the president should say, ‘Hey, keep it, I got this, because I don’t want to owe China or Russia something in return.”

Co-host Steve Doocy replied by attempting to draw a comparison between Trump’s meddling invitation and the Steele dossier — peddling the false claim that it kicked off the Mueller probe.

“Think about it this way though,” Doocy began. “The Steele dossier, which started the whole spying thing on the Trump campaign, let’s see where did that come from? That was funded initially by Republicans doing opposition research against Donald Trump.”

“The Russian influence came in started gathering information, unverified, a number of the sources were close to the Russian government,” the co-host added. “and who paid for that? That was dirt from Hillary Clinton and the DNC.”

Co-host Ainsley Earhardt chimed in, “DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign they funded Fusion GPS, they hired this British spy, foreign operator, British spy to write this dirty dossier that turned out to be a hoax and not true.” [Ed note: Nearly 100 percent of the Steele Dossier has been independently verified as factual]

Doocy pointed out that those efforts may be illegal and Kilmeade was adamant that it shouldn’t have been done.

“Put it this way, it was wrong,” Kilmeade stated. “and I don’t want to see it done again.”
