‘Fox & Friends’ drops a hammer on NY Times for Trump-Mueller story

By Nick Givas, DCNF

Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt slammed The New York Times for running a front page story about President Donald Trump wanting to fire special counsel Robert Mueller last June, Friday on “Fox & Friends.”

“The president says that’s fake news. That happened last June,” she said. “It’s something we have to tell you have about because it is a headline on the New York Times. What do you think about that? Do you even care.”

Earhardt then pivoted to the issue of immigration and said viewers care more about another government shutdown than about the Russia investigation.


“Something you probably do care about is immigration and Congress is working on a plan. The White House says they are going to release it next week, just ahead of a few days ahead of — another possible government shutdown when they have to fund the government because they have kicked the can down the road,” she said.

“White House immigration includes some things that you probably do care about including allowing as many as 1.8 million young immigrants to become citizens. And that’s DACA. These are the dreamers. They have to meet certain work and education requirements. And Congress is going to spell that out. It would take about 10 to 12 years for those folks to earn their citizenship.”

Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy said it was strange for TheNYT to make Mueller the headline, when there was another story about legal immigrants calling out illegal aliens for breaking the law.

“It’s interesting on the cover of, you’ve got the Trump ordered Mueller fired but … down here have you got a story about people who came to the country legally,” Doocy said. “It talks about a fellow from, I believe Vietnam, who did it legally and he’s steamed that there could be people who came into the country illegally and then they wind up getting a pathway to citizenship, because then that will encourage more people to come here illegally.”
