Trump crashes ‘F&F’ with tough words for ‘den of thieves’; hints he might ‘get involved’ to force DOJ docs

President Trump surprised many when he walked out of the White House for an impromptu interview with one of his favorite Fox News shows.

Trump crashed the set of “Fox & Friends” at the White House where he reacted to the bombshell inspector general’s report, blasting fired FBI chief James Comey and admitting he may have to get involved in forcing the Justice Department to release all remaining documents related to the probe into his campaign.

“I think Comey was the ringleader of this whole den of thieves,” Trump told Fox News host Steve Doocy.

“If you took a poll at the FBI, [I would win],” Trump told Doocy. “I mean the real FBI, not the scum on top.”

The president reacted to texts revealed in the highly anticipated report from the Justice Department’s internal watchdog, calling them “vicious” attacks on his supporters. The report not only revealed the political bias of FBI agent Peter Strzok in text messages with his lover, lawyer Lisa Page, but text messages by other FBI employees showed an eye-popping display of disdain toward Trump’s supporters, calling them “retarded” and “poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS.”

Trump praised his supporters, saying they are “the smartest, they’re the hardest working, they pay taxes. They’re incredible, they’re loyal.”

But the president admitted that, in the wake of the damning IG report, his plan to stay out of the DOJ probe may change.

“I said on the Department of Justice, I would stay uninvolved. Now I may get involved at some point if it gets worse,” he told Doocy, who then asked him about Republican lawmakers who are pushing for a vote on a resolution forcing the DOJ to stop stonewalling and finally release all remaining documents.

Trump repeated that he had try to stay uninvolved in the process but feels he “may not stay unnvolved because they have to get the documents.”

While the president’s visit with the “Fox & Friends” set seemed unplanned, it was not a complete surprise to the press. Trump hinted he might do so in earlier while livetweeting segments from the show.

Reporters converged upon him, peppering him with questions as soon as they saw the president emerge.

“You are about to see something on the Fox News that has never happened, that we believe, in the history of White House reporting,” Doocy announced as Trump made his way to the “Fox & Friends” cameras. “And that is the president of the United States is just outside the press room and it looks like he is in route to our location.”

 

The president even took a shot at his favorite “fake news” network CNN.
