It’s a rare occasion when Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume chimes in from the peanut gallery, but when he does Hume delivers a clarity that few can match.
Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol, an avid Never-Trumper, posted a rather sanctimonious question on Twitter asking conservatives who are “rationalizing” Trump’s presidency if they know they are wrong.
Honest Q for conservatives who aren't just working with or around Trump, but rationalizing him: In your heart, don't you know you're wrong?

Hume replied to Kristol’s query by effecting noting that for Trump supporters, actions speak louder than words.
Actually Bill, some of us think there's more to the man than his outlandish comments, e.g. his cabinet, his regulatory moves, leg. agenda. https://t.co/6SMtq7dbSc

The response prompted ABC News’ chief political analyst Matthew Dowd to pipe in, speaking of “values” as he asked if “words matter?”

But social media users were quick to agree with Hume’s assessment… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

@brithume A President finally taking on the media is worth something.

@brithume I am not a fan of the bombast, etc. but very pleased with Gorsuch, Sessions, Mattis, DeVos picks

@brithume That’s why you’re so beloved, Brit. Please don’t go away. The media needs your voice to maintain some semblance of relevance.
