‘He’s The Worst’: Fox Host Brit Hume Blasts Trump After Crushing Election Defeat
Just hours after Democrats swept Tuesday’s elections, Fox News’s Brit Hume is criticizing President Trump’s response to Republicans losing the Virginia governor’s race.
“Trump at his worst. Everything is always about him,” Hume tweeted.

Hume’s comments came after Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D) defeated his GOP opponent, Ed Gillespie, in the race for Virginia governor.
Trump personally campaigned for Gillespie, urging Virginians to turn out and vote for him. In tweets Tuesday, Trump said Gillespie would “turn around the high crime and poor economic performance” of Virginia.
But almost immediately after Gillespie’s defeat, Trump sought to distance himself from the GOP candidate.
“Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for,” Trump tweeted.
The blue wave along the East Coast also saw Democrat Phil Murphy winning the governor’s race in New Jersey. Democrats are also on pace to capture control of the Virginia General Assembly, and several liberals, including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio won their mayoral elections.
The overwhelming victory gives Democrats a boost heading into the 2018 midterms, when control of US House and Senate will be up for grabs.
