Typically when we think of Fox News, we don’t exactly think of a news network that is all too willing to focus on the controversies surrounding President Trump, as much as their competitors are. That’s why when a commentator or reporter on the network scathingly attacks the president, that attack comes off as much more meaningful as when someone on CNN or MSNBC may do the same.
This is exactly what happened last night as Fox News’ Neil Cavuto unleashed a scathingly, condemning, verbal onslaught at the president.
″You are so darned focused on promoting a financial boom that you fail to see that you are the one creating this moral bust,” Cavuto stated. “And we could all be the poorer for it.”
While some may argue that there has been a “financial boom” in this country under Trump, others see it as more or less of a continuance of a trend that began under the Obama administration. Either way, we can probably all agree that Trump has not done much to hurt the current economy, although some argue that he’s setting the economy up for a major downturn.
While there is certainly a lot of disagreement as far as how much responsibility Trump should get for our current economic success, Cavuto put some things into perspective.
“Making money should never get in the way of simply getting answers,” Cavuto explained. “All I’m saying is that you don’t prevent a constitutional crisis by creating another one. But, Mr. President, you guarantee both when your very actions and words create that crisis or make people think that you’re hiding one.”
Cavuto then went on to attack Trump for lying to the American people about not knowing anything about payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, before reprimanding him for doing the same in regards to a the Trump Tower meeting.
“What good is it to fatten your wallet if you’ve lost your soul?” Cavuto said in conclusion.
