Sunday Talks: President Trump Interviews with Fox and Friends…

The drop in ratings for corporate Fox News is unfamiliar territory for them.  It takes a while for corporate suites to react to losses in position.  In the era of Roger Ailes, losing was unfamiliar.  Broadcast perspectives modify based on finances. President Trump is bigger than the media who report on him.

      That is what you got from that interview? I absolutely loved the respect the interviewer, Pete and our President had for one another. It was genuine. Our President thanked him for fighting for veterans throughout the years. The bill signed on Friday is historical because of the fact our President beat the union. Our veterans overcame the mafia controlled unions.

    I love this guy, about 4:15 in he says (about Lee, Cruz, etc.) “They wanna get some points”….

    So basically he’s using a financial term to describe the negotiation. So a point is basically a percentage, if you’re negotiating a real estate deal you might want a couple points or whatever off or on the loan, etc.

    HILARIOUS

    The way he just so casually talks about finance always amazes me. In one of the interviews during the G.E. he said “That’s what you do! You throw it in a chapter, beat up the banks….”

    LOL It would be so fun to sit down with him and talk his brand of finance and see how these guys who do this at a huge level, see how they think and operate.

      She has a really ‘unique’ skill set. On one hand she’s very pretty but on the other hand as soon as you watch her or talk to her for a few minutes, you notice she has a kind of manly voice… and acts like a 6 year old.

      So usually, someone who looks like her would be able to wrap men around their finger… but she struggles with pulling that off because of the other character traits.

      Meanwhile people like Ainsley Earhart get interview after interview because she’s generally a pleasant person, who wouldn’t want to talk to her every few days???!!!!????

    • President Trump was surprised at the level of hostility between Rs and Ds. He should try to find out why that hostility exists. There are reasons, believe me.

      • Also, POTUS, like many Americans is not aware that the political parties are PRIVATE. Most think the parties are part of the government, the way they are in Europe. Not so. So, he was right to recognize that the Rs and Ds had rigged THEIR OWN candidate selection process, but the actual governement process is not only “rigged,” but “rigid.” So, there’s that.
        If anyone doesn’t believe me, I suggest that you attend 2 or 3 city council meetings in your own town.

          I went to our “Board of Supervisors” meeting this month. Gee, what a locked up gang of idiots who hold the highest government offices in our county. I doubt one of them even realizes that they work for the people.
          I lost all confidence in my local government and would move tomorrow if my husband would. Sixteen years ago we found a plot of ground (a little over five acres) and built our house from the ground up. It’s our little paradise and it keeps my husband busy. He won’t move until he leaves this earth. So, I travel and he gardens. Our local government stinks.
          Now I understand why our county doesn’t have a great school system, and why crime is growing. No family with children should move here.

        InvestingforOne, to intimate the President doesn’t know why hostility exists between Rs and Ds is, I think, to miss some of his most honed and unique skills. Maybe he SAID he didn’t know why (I didn’t watch the section), but he knows. You can count on that, and you will see the evidence eventually.

      Minimizing the effect of any “Russian influence” (especially any computer network intrusions) was an essential strategy for Obama to provide political “cover” as an apologist for an incompetent idiot candidate like Hillary Clinton who had breached security and made an open door to the world’s hackers (including Russian hackers) by recklessly handling in a criminal way what was classified information.

      If there was any overt attention called to any serious breaches of security attributable to “Russian hackers” it would have sunk the already leaking boat of Hillary Clinton having been run onto a security breach reef by Hillary Clinton, underscoring an unfitness for command that would necessarily reside with anyone who recklessly and unlawfully breached security by mishandling classified information.

      If the DNC entire network had been a victim of a security breach then it would highlight the recklessness and vulnerability of a “private server” that had been misused already by Hillary Clinton, recklessness which had exposed ALL of the classified data she had mishandled to interception by “hackers” of many foreign states, including Russia.

      The entire “Russian interference” narrative is devastating to Hillary Clinton, not to Donald Trump. It isn’t Donald Trump who behaved as a reckless dumb ass and halfwit about security. It wasn’t Donald Trump who was shown incompetent to have command authority by failure to follow the law regarding handling of classified information.

      Americans had to choose between one qualified candidate and one dumb ass, so the one legitimate choice was elected.

Hillary accomplished that identity for herself. So other idiots of like mind still want to identify with another idiot just like themselves …..Fine.

          It would have been an optics nightmare for Hillary for Obama to pursue any “Russian interference” narrative related to “computer hacking” of the DNC. It would have spotlighted a systemic widespread vulnerability due to negligence and incompetence that existed with Democrats in general as a prerequisite for such a security breach to be possible. If Democrats can’t even protect themselves, then how can they be trusted to protect the entire country?

          Yes it is plainly true by several different evidences that Hillary was a walking security disaster. And the military as well as the intelligence agencies recognized that Hillary Clinton showed unfitness for command. For her to simply ignore explicit MILITARY rules regarding the handling of classified information and to be reckless with handling such information demonstrated an unequivocal unfitness for command, even without the additional problem that such reckless conduct is a felony crime.

          It is truly bizarre that there would be any difficulty for a Hillary voter to accept the results of an election where she quite properly lost. But additionally it is bizarre how any such voter would not understand how Hillary was never actually qualified to be a candidate for president in the first place, given the absolutely clear fact that Hillary Clinton had proven she was a walking security disaster. Someone who would aspire to be commander in chief of the armed forces needs to show more presence of mind and common sense about security and not trivialize it by the reckless “mistakes” as Hillary Clinton made. Such “mistakes” proved that Hillary was untrustworthy and unfit for properly handling weighty matters. Hillary Clinton was disqualified for command because of such concerns. If the woman had any presence of mind then she would have recognized her own demonstrated unfitness for duty and would never have fraudulently offered herself as a “qualified” candidate because of her disqualifying history involving reckless breaches of security.

            In fairness, this “popular vote” meme has thoroughly confused the gullible and the already duped. Candidate Trump with the help of Jared Kushner calculated the states he needed to win and where to spend the most time, energy and money. California will prove to be completely fraudulent given how easy it is for anyone to get a driver’s license. I believe in due course the massive scale of fraud that happened in California (and Illinois) will come to light.

          Sure forward it, but I’m sure they probably already know what game has been played is all about optics. Security concerns about Hillary’s e-mails and/or any “Russian hackers” is not something that Obama could touch with a 10 foot pole since Obama knew Hillary was operating a non-gov private e-mail server and Obama himself was engaged in a security breach by communicating to Hillary on that non-gov unsecured server. Obama was right in the middle of that mess obviously, and so was ALL of the security agency protocols waived to allow such an unauthorized non-gov e-mail server, which could only have occurred by presidential authorization by Obama, who is a criminal accessory to Hillary Clinton.

          The main “convenience” aspect about Hillary’s “private” e-mail server was that it served well Obama’s and Hillary’s subversive purpose to operate the U.S. State Department “off the books” (and off the record) in a way that made “convenient” the needed information control to conceal all the bribery and “pay for play” that was being money laundered by the Clinton Foundation, a partnership in crime for Obama and Clinton. The “private” e-mail system allowed any information control needed to avoid accountability by managing what would be shown on the record and what needed to be deleted.

        Leadership is that art of getting people to willingly comport to your stated goal, and then to positively direct their actions in accomplishing it by providing insight, guidance, and support. In the Army, the old definition was to be able to bring about the “cheerful and willing obedience to orders”.

Not the the canned words of ” support our troops” rhetoric we hear so often from politicians then in word and deed do the opposite.

    If one believes Rush Limbaugh (and inside baseball broadcasting is his area of expertise) Fox’s loss of ratings was planned and is deliberate. As usual, follow the money: Ailes’ kids who are now running the network want to buy up broadcast outlets and program syndicators. To lower the market value of those properties, you first lower the ad revenue generated by the programming they carry (and thereby the profits they generate). Cheapen the value of Fox News, and you manipulate prices downward. Per Rush, the Ailes kids believe they can damage Fox temporarily, score big in fire-sale syndicator purchases, then hire new talent and push Fox News back to the top of the ratings heap — putting hundreds of millions of $$$ in their pockets in the process. Limbaugh said on mike that he thinks the “youth” now running Fox do not know what they are doing, and that lost ratings will be very haerd to reclaim — particularly during the reign of Trump. DJT has helped create a hysterical opposition media, and the morons and haters on the left are apparently flocking to it. Just look at ratings for MSNBC et al in the 25-34 age group and you’ll see the truth in that claim.

        I think that is who SafeSpace meant. He probably identified Ailes so strongly with the network he unconsciously typed Ailes instead of Murdoch.

        To the point at hand, however, I will say this. They lost me not only as a Fox viewer but as a cable subscriber. They won’t get me back due to the trust factor. I will never, ever get over the deliberate treachery of Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly, and Chris Wallace in that first debate.

        Bret was on his show bragging about how they had REHEARSED their questions for days. The first question was the “do you pledge to support the winner” question from Bret, and the second was the question on President Trump’s treatment of women.

        Both questions were designed to make the President look bad, and were done not only with a dem sympathy but in collusion with the Jeb Bush people. The audience was full of Bush supporters, if you remember.

        I never got over it. I dropped cable when we moved last summer and watched the rallies on live stream through RSBN. I now watch the White House live stream. Any important interviews (like this one) I watch when Sundance posts them.

        So, although I am just one small dot in the Murdocjh empire, they will never get me back.

    The first thing the Leftists now in charge there did was fire Bill O’Reilly, who had carried their ratings for 20 years.

    And if you make the mistake of tuning into their daytime lineup, they’ve hired an assortment of Liberal Democrat “contributors” who bash President Trump repeatedly.

    So Fox can go straight to hell as far as I’m concerned, along with the $150 – $200 a month in cable fees it costs for the privilege.

    Fox has taken further turns into the gutter lately especially with their never ending revolving door of nevertrumpers/establishment figures they have on constantly. which all mostly think the same and is so tiring and infuriating. This is a big reason why they are turning off viewers. Many of those people is what millions of us voted against and it seems Fox doesn’t care or doesn’t get it. They don’t listen to viewers and instead double down on the Sheps, Wallaces, Stirewalts and establishment group think.

    But I like that President Trump rewards those that are fair to him with interviews, which is just a handful on Fox (Watters, Judge Jeanine, Tucker, Fox & Friends, Maria Bartiromo). Pete Hegseth is great- a patriot, very pro-Trump. He’s the main reason I watch fox and friend weekend. I’m glad the POTUS gave him an exclusive.

      I forgot to mention the perfect example: This morning on Fox & Friends they invited on the complete swamp moron who heads the White House Correspondents Association: Jeff Mason. It was a good interview with Pete Hegseth (who interviewed POTUS today) Abby Huntsman, and that other guy that’s sort of the Kilmeade of the group.

      The topic was the on-camera briefings (Acosta and this guy are loving the attn they’re getting for opposing this) and of course Mason was totally defending the need for it. The three pushed back and one asked him who speaks for the American people. He didn’t give an inch saying he sees nothing wrong or that needs to change in the WH press (of course not, he’s just as bad as Acosta).

      Anyways the reason for my mentioning it is Pete Hegeseth asked him why would they need on-camera if you can get the same information on print or audio? Mason replied: Well, Pete, most on Fox disagree with you and think it should be televised and be on cameras, and I’m speaking and fighting for it on their behalf and on the behalf of Fox news as well.

      Fox is all about ratings but they want to have their cake and eat it too. You can’t be both establishment swamp when people are increasingly rejecting the same old, but they want to keep viewers. No the country has changed and they better get with the program while they still have a chance.

        Part of it is President Trump has changed politics, but like he says, he’s just the messenger… the reality is the internet and social media has forever changed how politics CAN work, because any lies will be thoroughly vetted online… and it’s so easy to connect and band together with like minded people like on here.

        So Fox has a tough row to hoe anyways, because of the changing nature of communication. They’re fighting for television, but the reality is the White House is using social media, which usurps any needs for television.

        In short: Television is soooooooo yesterday.

      I think the reason they have the never Trumpers on is because they’re so isolated they don’t understand why we hate them. They don’t understand why we don’t like Katie Pavlich, she supports Trump! They don’t understand, that we know, she DOESN’T support President Trump and was part of the National Review Never Trump issue and we will never forget. So they trot her out over and over again and don’t get the disconnect. She should be perfect, why doesn’t it work?

      You can count on an endless parade of wankers on Fox. It’s a given, and maddening. I’m sick of yelling at the TV. Also, my wife is sick of me yelling at the TV. One thing you can count on Is Lou Dobbs will be “wanker free”. Last I saw was col. Peter’s, who completely pissed off Lou. That was months ago and he hasn’t seen Lou’s show since.

        My onnnnnnnly small quabble with Lou’s show (not Lou himself) is that they have to use John Roberts to talk about the white house goings on, John is a damn snake in the grass.

          I agree about Roberts, I liked Kevin Corke much much better. Don’t get why they didn’t keep him, he’s great whenever he substitutes for Roberts. Corke seems to “get it” a lot of the time. John Roberts’s wife works at CNN, he’s MSM swamp for the most part.

        I almost always disagree with whatever Col. Peters says. I forgot what he said the other day that angered me, I think something about Assange and Russia. I can understand how Lou would get mad at him. Peters seems very out of touch. I prefer Gen Keane and even Bolton over him.

    • Hmmm, possible new press secretary next year or so??? Pretty easy on the eyes, I must say! [referring to Pete Hegseth – first time I’ve seen him. Usually hear him on the radio subbing for regular talkers.]

    I know most people would scoff at this, but I would like to see insurance (and the government insurance) out of the health care field. It keeps your medical care artificially high. Medical costs will never come down because it is not market driven, it is insurance driven. Many third party players are making money off our sicknesses. It’s a shame and a sham when our healthcare is being traded on the stock exchange. Check out what an insurance company pays a doctor for a service but you can’t go in, as a person with no insurance, and pay the same in cash. A doctor will charge $500, insurance will pay $50, but you can’t go pay $50, you will be billed $500. Anything less, the doctor will be charged with insurance fraud. Doctors are going broke and becoming “hospitalists” because of the cost of medical school and the cost of running their offices with malpractice insurance, staff and insurance billers. Our medical care is being sucked up by insurance company’s, huge medical corporations, universities charging exorbitant fees and importing doctors from other countries.

      I agree 100%… I’d like to get to a system where I can just pay cash for health treatment. We probably need catastrophic insurance (which is what I have) but for minor non life threatening issues if we could just pay cash (with a yuge discount) I think everyone would be better off. Of course a ‘safety net’ for people with truly no money, and each hospital or doctor could work out their own payment plans like any other business

      You miss the fact that the AMA WILL NOT ALLOW more medical schools to open. One university near me tried to open a new medical school and the AMA KILLED IT by refusing to accredit the school before it even got off the drawing board.

      So that is another page in the scam.

      Biggest problem in Healthcare – period!

      Gov. should treat it like serving in the armed forces. Set up clinics for the people that can’t afford HC. Pay for the education of MDs and RNs, PROVIDED they work on the clinics for four years, at standard salaries BTW.

      That ends it.

    Appropriate respect for The President by this interviewer…..and by the way, what a SPECTACULAR appointment has been Dr. Schulkin. Quiet, unsung, but eminently EFFECTIVE. A classic TRUMP ingenius appointment, notwithstanding the lambasting Schulkin has taken by so many Trump “supporters” even here at CTH by the “wolverines” …….. ( heh, heh)

      Just think Maria, of what could have been, if Bush would have made appointments like this. We’ve wasted decades, people have grown old and died waiting for President Trump to come along.

    I saw some of the comments earlier about Pete Hegseth. The difference in Pete and some of the other Fox hosts is that Pete is a veteran and is the head of Concerned Veterans For America. He has done numerous forums and town hall style meetings across the country. In fact, his name was one of the names floated around in the early days post election by the media to head the VA. I think he would have done a good job for the position had he been chosen. He’s probably happy right where he is though.

    Treehouse will be all over this momentarilly:

    From Steve Kates “This is such a frightening story and what may be the most frightening part is that almost no one is going to be frightened by it. From The New York Post. Remember the repulsive story about Trump in Russia that was supposedly “leaked” by a British agent? Turns out the entire story was concocted by a Democrat Party research firm but partly funded by the FBI.

    The FBI received a copy of the Democrat-funded dossier in August, during the heat of the campaign, and is said to have contracted in October to pay Steele $50,000 to help corroborate the dirt on Trump — a relationship that “raises substantial questions about the independence” of the bureau in investigating Trump, warned Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.

    “Raises substantial questions” is so understating the issue that you can see the fear about the nature of American governance if it is true, and there is every reason to believe it is. Everything you think about our way of life and our political leaders and our personal freedoms would have to be re-written from the ground up. Draining the sewer becomes more formidable every day.”

      We have known about this aspect of the story for awhile, however, today is the first day, I think, McCabe’s name has been attached to the Steele negotiation.

      I am wondering if PDJT knew about this and thus has had to “live” with McCabe until he was avle to have gim smoked out?

    On important issues I hope Pete Hegseth becomes the White House go-to interviewer. Great job. Pete’s style allows meaningful content. It’s so nice to be able to hear the President finish a sentence without interruption.
