Maria Bartiromo Interviews President Donald Trump…

Shortly before the president signed an executive order on affirming first amendment rights on college campuses yesterday, President Trump sat down for an extensive interview with Maria Bartiromo.

The interview covers a wide range of topics with a primary focus on the U.S. economy, ongoing trade discussions and issues that impact the U.S. workforce. One of the granular issues that surfaces is a subject we discuss frequently, the value of the ‘chicken tax‘; the 25% tariff on imported trucks and SUV’s.   WATCH:

    I was not happy that Maria chose to focus a question on John McCain – “but he’s dead”.

    Mr. No Name tried to help in taking down President Trump by being involved in the fake dossier and crossed him on Obamacare! Since when is that okay and because he’s dead, we must just ignore?

        Just because his daughter is a regular on some TV show that no one with sense watches, we get to hear about how great her Dad was. Well, my Dad was great and he suffered through WWII and survived Pearl Harbor and the Doolittle Raids and he came home after eight years in the Navy with a disability. My Dad was a hero. I’m not on TV to complain about his illness that was caused by exposure to asbestos or the fact that the state of TN has a time limit of one year to make claim for damage. My Dad was a PATRIOT and the McCains are damned.

      You’re right fanbeav. Maria Bartiromo brought up John McCain.
      The news media will not let John McCain rest in peace. The news-media continues to use John McCain’s dead body as a cudgel against President Trump.

      There’s a lot of good news happening; a lot of important events occurring. Our news media will focus on the small things to try and damage Trump. = The ‘memory’ of John McCain; the statements of Kellyanne and George Conway in regards to Trump.

      The first part of the interview was very good, and revealed Trump’s reasoning for many of his policies. = Build the cars here, that are sold here. A policy of zero tariffs for everyone will not work in all industries. ‘There’s not a big market for Chevrolet cars in Europe.’

      And I heard President Trump say that he had to approve McCain’s lavish funeral. Where is the war hero buried? Why isn’t he buried at Arlington with his father and grandfather?

      I wonder if there are any family members left who would like to have the POW information John McCain hid away, declassified so that they could find out any information about their MIA/POW loved ones.

      If we, taxpayers, paid for an investigation into persons who committed treason during the Vietnam war and John McCain ended up Number 1 on the list to be hung, why is the report from that investigation hidden from us? How would Cindy feel about that?

      McCain reassured everyone right up to the last minute that he was going to vote yes, he was lying, the nasty, jealous, mean spirited, already 3/4 rotten on the inside wanted the knife he stuck into President Trump as poisonness as only a person as piisonness as John McCain could make it.

      I am proud of my President for not lying when questioned about McCain.

        Betty, this is a very lengthy piece written in 2010 by a well known journalist and author (“The Killing Fields”), the late Sydney Schanberg, God rest his soul. My theory of songbird’s treacherous behavior, some of the POWs who never made it home could reveal his collaboration with the Vietcong. Our government/songbird betrayed them and left them to rot.

        McCain and the POW Cover-Up
        The “war hero” candidate buried information about POWs left behind in Vietnam.

        [snip]
        John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books.

      President Trump said McCain lied all the way up to a minute or so before the vote. President Trump said they would never have held the vote if McCain had been honest. So McCain not only voted “No” he made sure his “No” vote killed any hope of a repeal and replace.

      McCain knew the dossier was salacious & unverified when he gave it to the FBI. You could argue that he should have gone to his Republican candidate first & would have realized how false it was. That’s not the issue, though. The real issue is he slipped the dossier’s contents to several media outlets. Only reason to do so would be a vicious attempt to tank Trump’s candidacy.

      Why ask about John McCain? I’m thinking that John McCain is being reanimated by the Democrat/Media/Wall Street/Decipticons/Deep State once again. He was the willingly useful tool to provide partisan cover for this mess and now he is summoned from beyond the grave to provide chaff for the incoming truth bombs while also a potential fall guy. “Well this wouldn’t have happened if not for the Honorable McCain’s help therefore it’s his fault”. I’m also thinking that the kerfuffle about Mr Kelly Ann Conway was a Hail Mary kill shot to disrupt and take out President Trump’s effective spokeswoman right before the release of the Muellestor report and all it’s glory of probing. And if it didn’t work it might sow discord for future use plus every interview can now start with “Why aren’t you supporting your husband, why are you working for OrangeManBad, Don’t you love your family”.

Maria has been one of the very few who have persistent in demanding action on the illegal actions of the DOJ and the FBI. What she was doing in this interview, IMHO, was pointing out to President Trump that his comments have been, most of all, damaging to him rather than to the late John McCain.

            “It would be dereliction of her duty not to ask about a topic that’s clearly an item of current public concern.” Maria did ‘her duty’ and brought up the McCain topic the first time and that was fine – the President addressed it squarely and fully, and then they started to move on. Then Maria pivoted back up a second time after the conversation had moved to a different direction… completely uncalled for and you could tell that PO’d President Trump.

            I think Maria just lost some good faith as one of the few MSM journalists/personalities that the President trusted. Bad timing for her I think. Was she being leaned on by her increasingly left-leaning FOX masters? Could be… but I still think she, for the first time, went out of her way to make the POTUS look bad. Very unnecessary, and very bad move on her part. With that second McCain attack, she just lost the trust of alot of her regular supportive viewers, if I count as an average one.

    A caller on the Rush show today asked a very good question, and raised an excellent point: what if the shoe was on the other foot? What if McCain was running for President, and won, and Trump was a private citizen but just hated McCain, so he learned about a dossier in Europe, sent someone over to get it, then fed it to various fed agencies and lame stream media outlets. The McCain family would all be having brain aneurysms. They would all be beside themselves with anger and outrage.

    I’ve read some stories and articles about McCain, none of them good. He’ll probably get his just desserts. We can only hope.

    President Trump fights back. This is what fighting back looks like. We have never had a President in my lifetime that does what President Trump does. Someone takes a swing at him, he hits back 10 times harder. President Trump is extremely angry that McCain did not keep his word and voted against getting rid of Odumbo-care. I’d be pissed too. I don’t care what fighting back looks like. We finally have a President that is fighting back. The progs and the media don’t know what to do because, except for Reagan and a very small number of others, President Trump fights back, tells the truth, and doesn’t care who is offended. He is fighting for himself, his family, his team, his people, and his country. He loves them all. And he will fight for all of them. Anytime, anywhere, anyplace. God bless President Trump!

        BTW, it’s not a dead traitor that’s fighting the president with harsh words now; it is the traitor’s living family attacking the President behind a dead man shield.

        Swissik. He was ask a question about McCain he answered it truthfully. There was absolutely nothing inappropriate about it. He had two issues with McCain and that was what he addressed and he didn’t elaborate further. If the propagandist weren’t all in a tizzy about McCain this week, it would be something else. There is nothing the president can say or do that won’t create some kind over the top reaction by those against him. We the public need to learn to roll with the punches as well as our president does.

    I have been somewhat of a fan of Maria but this interview segment was unnecessary and only made her look small and nitpicking. Totally unnecessary to bring up the McCain thing again. PDJT was absolutely correct – SHE brought it up in this interview, and then she essentially criticizes PDJT for talking about it! We can get that crap on CNN, MSNBC, etc etc.so who needs her repeating it?

    The reasons to watch or listen to anything on any FoxNews or Fox Business cable channels have almost totally evaporated. I only watch the clips that are posted here in CTH.

    I surmise Bartiromo was under orders to pound on the McCain questions and she complied. Perhaps she was not pleased to have to harp on the topic—she seemed happier going over economic matters—but also not prepared to risk her job by not dwelling on the McCain “controversy”. Perhaps it’s only a matter of time before Fox evicts Bartiromo along with the other few remaining non-leftist voices. Sad to see but Fox has made its bed. Now let’s see how comfortable they are in it.

        I agree, asking the question again, and getting the same answer, is a clue the subject is exhausted. Indeed time to move on. The interchange tells us she was under strict orders to bear down on the McCain “issue” for all the good that it did her.

    VSGPDJT is the master of all masters when it comes to branding. Whether he is bringing it up or the media is bringing it up, President Trump is taking the opportunity to permanently brand McCain for exactly who he was; a conniving, self-interested traitor who put the uni-party ahead of all others, including a duly elected president of the United States. The dossier was Dirty, McCain was Dirty, the Big Club is Dirty, the Deep State is Dirty, and President Trump is going to make damn sure every single one of them is seen for exactly who they are.

    By hanging the dossier on McCain loud and clear, it gives the media one hell of a dilemma. “Do we talk about the dossier?”

    I am POSITIVE Trump would like nothing more than for the media to take the bait and defend McCain over the dossier. The more press on that the better.

        I respectfully disagree Sandra. She did not just ask one question about it. She harped on it and called him out for bringing it up when she was the one that brought it up. She then told him he brought it up “this week”. He shut her down pretty good. I am thinking Fox is about to change. So sad. But I will not defend Maria today. I thought she was snarky. Can you imagine being given the honor to interview a President one on one and to try and “get him”. It was not just once. She was rude. It seemed he was disappointed in her and I am too.

    “The evil that men do lives after them. The good is oft interred with their bones” – Shakespeare. McCain left a lot of evil behind him – the Dossier, and Obamacare. PDJT and every citizen who McDrain betrayed, has to live with this. That’s why PDJT and the rest of us are still talking about him. McCain perpetrated evil on a huge scale at the end of his life. He left us to deal with the mess. There is absolutely no reason to honor him.

    Great to see our GREAT President pushing back on one of the best newspeople in the business.
    The question “is it your job to bring the nation together?” was a setup. Maria was really asking “should you be backing down from the corrupt media and the marxist democrat party?”
    THE ANSWER IS HELL NO!
    President Trump IS uniting the American people against the corrupt media, the globalist/one world government scum, and the marxist democrat party, while at the same time improving our standard of living and Making America Great Again.
    Please don’t stop Mr. President!

    Nobody detests John McCain more than I; PT only speaks the truth about him and McCain is a traitor and a hateful SOB who cared about himself and only himself and being on CNN.

    Having said that, the left is now using it as a weapon against him; I know polls are only polls and some here don’t think much of Rasmussen, but I believe they’re as close to what public sentiment is about PT.

    PT has dropped 4 points in his approval number since yesterday. This is just my opinion, but it’s the McCain effect. I know PT is only giving it back to them, but I believe this is hurting him. I hope he drops it. This is just my 2 cents.

    Let someone else expose the traitorous SOB for what he has done to PT.

    The INVENTED “fake heroism narrative” about McCain’s “refusal to accept special treatment” from those who held him captive as a prisoner of war INSULTS THE INTELLIGENCE of any rational person. No prisoner has any say whatever to influence the conditions of his imprisonment or the scheduling of his release ….unless such freedom to make decisions was allowed by the captors.
    No prisoner would ever really have one damn thing to say about such things because that would be antithetical to their status as a PRISONER.

      John McCain was not tortured by his captors.

      Sera, Nguyen Tien Tran McCains prison guard. acknowledged that conditions in the prison were “tough, though not inhuman”. But, he added: “We never tortured McCain. On the contrary, we saved his life, curing him with extremely valuable medicines that at times were not available to our own wounded.”

      Tran, now 75, said McCain reached Hanoi with the worst injuries he had seen in a downed pilot. But he denied torturing him, saying it was his mission to ensure that McCain survived. As the son of the US naval commander in Vietnam, he offered a potential valuable propaganda weapon.

      Tran told Corriere that McCain was sent to hospital the day after he was brought to Hanoi and stayed there for a month. “I never lost him from sight. I was frightened a doctor or nurse might do him harm.”
      John McCain. Made taped confessions to his captors. That confession was played endlessly over the prison loudspeaker system at Hoa Lo—to try to break down other prisoners—and was broadcast over Hanoi’s state radio. Reportedly, he confessed to being a war criminal who had bombed civilian targets.

      According to two emergency room physicians in Phoenix, , who tell us they don’t want their names used, interviewed by CounterPunch, it was at this time that Cindy McCain sought medical attention in the Phoenix area for injuries consistent with physical violence: bruises, contusions and a black eye . There were at least two more visits for medical attention in the Phoenix area by Cindy, with similar injuriesi, between 1988 and 1993.

    The fact is, he did some bad things… and they don’t go away just because he died. If the President is asked about him, he has every right to respond. They keep asking, he keeps responding.

    Maybe next time he is asked he can just say “I have answered this many times now, time to move on” and walk away.

    Personally, I don’t mind President Trump speaking the truth, but he is getting hammered by so many people now that this particular subject is hurting him. By design. He needs to get away from it… change the narrative ASAP.

    I voted for Trump because he exposed songbird Mccain when he was alive, which was common knowledge to anyone who didn’t get their information from MSM or MSSM(MS social media).

    John Podesta said he thought attacking Mccain was a bad move…and when Trump doubled down, Podesta said he really thought that would hurt him, but instead…”it only made him stronger”. Podesta says this in slight admiration, while stuffing his face at dinner in a candid interview on “the circus”(showtime).

    John Mccain is not a victim. He lived a long life and became rich on stolen valor. He used that stolen valor to target Trump and his family, sell out Republicans again, and help Hillary Clinton, who continues Mccain’s treachery using the Russia Hoax as a confidence trick to exploit the good will of well meaning but naive Americans, for political and financial gain.

    Trump has been, is, and always will be the victim of the deep state deniers, as we have, are, and will be seeing, because the cult of intelligence despises deplorables. A former CIA director explains why.

    “Their own dedicated double life became the proper norm, and they looked down on the life of the rest of the citizenry. And out of this grew what was later named — and condemned — as the “cult” of intelligence, an inbred, distorted, elitist view of intelligence that held it to be above the normal processes of society, with its own rationale and justification, beyond the restraints of the Constitution, which applied to everything and everyone else.” – William Colby
