Fox News Hosts Blast Trump For ‘Distasteful’ Remarks On Puerto Rico
A panel on the Fox News show “Outnumbered” criticized President Donald Trump Thursday for denying that hurricanes last fall resulted in nearly 3,000 deaths in Puerto Rico.
“Five states have declared a state of emergency … Ten million people in the path of Florence,” exclaimed co-host Melissa Francis, referring to states bracing for Hurricane Florence’s anticipated Carolina landfall on Friday.
“Instead, they’re fighting back and forth about what happened in Puerto Rico,” Francis continued. “It is incredibly distasteful. I don’t know why the president weighed in on this one.”
Contributor Steve Hilton chimed in to say that Trump’s remarks were “unseemly,” and that “this political argument is really unnecessary.”
“What are we doing?” Hilton asked.
When it was garbage time in early MNF Dandy Don Meredith would sing a line from Willie Nelson’s classic, Turn Out The Lights, The Party’s Over. I can hear that tune now in relation to Trump when a news Panel (not just Smith or Wallace) at Fox News disses Trump.
