Watch: Fox News Commentator Makes A Fool Of Herself Trying To Defend Trump-Russia Ties
As journalists prepare to bombard President Trump with questions about his campaign clandestine meetings with Russia operatives, Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy on Thursday argued the press is “unpatriotic” for using a joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron to get some answers from the president.
“He is going to have to address it, and you know that the Democrats and the liberals in the media are so unhinged that it is going to come up in this press conference,” Campos-Duggy said.
“It used to be unpatriotic to ask these kinds of questions on foreign soil,” she continued. “And I think that this just shows where the Democrats are at. It is all it is all about obstructing and taking this president down.”
Fox News contributor Jehmu Greene pushed back on her assertion:
“I think we can all agree there are a lot of things that used to be unpatriotic that have been accepted by the Republican Party, but goodness, for President Trump, there could not be a better time for him to escape the United States,” she said.
“But the great thing about this press conference is that we actually get to ask the president questions,” she added. “The fact that he is only doing press conferences with other world leaders is a really bad sign for our democracy.”
Trump has not held a press conference on U.S. soil since June 9, when he stood beside President Klaus Iohannis of Romania and answered fueled questions over whether he has tapes of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey (he doesn’t).
