    Fox News Host Suggests “We Have a Coup on Our Hands in America”

    Fox News Host Suggests “We Have a Coup on Our Hands in America”


    By Daniel Politi

    Fox News host Jesse Watters suggested that the FBI investigation into whether Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election has maybe transformed into a “coup” against President Donald trump. Before a segment in which Watters interviewed Kellyanne Conway with the chyron, “A COUP IN AMERICA?” the Fox News host went on a rant about what he described as “smoking gun evidence” that the FBI agents investigating Trump are biased against the president. “The investigation into Donald Trump’s campaign has been crooked from the jump,” Watters said on Saturday night. “But the scary part is we may now have proof the investigation was weaponized to destroy his presidency for partisan political purposes and to disenfranchise millions of American voters. Now, if that’s true, we have a coup on our hands in America.” On Saturday night, another Fox News host, Jeanine Pirro, outright suggested that the FBI wanted to reverse Trump’s election. And he is hardly alone. Many at Fox have been increasing the rhetoric against FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

    It appears that we are now being told that Trump and his people are "above the law" and any effort to make them comply with laws is a "coup". That makes it an attempted "coup" by the Trump administration. It will fail.

    It’s like they are all in a never ending spiral to be a bigger idiot than the last Fox host.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    It is a fact that a hostile foreign power at least tried to influence our election.
    The president of the United States does not want the FBI to investigate that influence.

    Why?

    Russia meddling in our national elections is a threat to democracy, pure and simple, and must be stopped. One must ask why the winner of the last election is so adamantly opposed to the FBI doing their job.

    This is a feedback loop.

    Trump is probably watching fox and hearing this nonsense right now.

    Because it would somehow make him illegitimate?

    One could speculate that it would, given the facts of the matter.
