Fox News Judge Destroys Trump On Live TV After The President Tried Attacking His ‘Dumb’ Legal Analysis
Donald Trump spent his weekend tweeting against his “enemies” and even went after Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano.
Napolitano has been critical of the president as of late and has even claimed that there’s enough evidence to impeach the president. Those comments got Trump fired up and he attacked Napolitano via Twitter:
….Ever since Andrew came to my office to ask that I appoint him to the U.S. Supreme Court, and I said NO, he has been very hostile! Also asked for pardon for his friend. A good “pal” of low ratings Shepard Smith.

But Trump’s claims were quickly shut down on Monday by Napolitano himself.
Responding to the president’s comments on Fox Business Monday, Napolitano asked sarcastically, “This is the way you treat your friends? How do you treat your enemies?”
Referencing Trump’s claim that he asked the president to appoint him to the Supreme Court, Napolitano described a meeting during the transition where he was advising Trump on Supreme Court nominees. According to Napolitano, Trump at one point told the Fox News judicial analyst it “sounds like you’re describing yourself.”
“I said ‘no, no, I’m not describing myself,’” Napolitano noted. “‘I’m describing Neil Gorsuch because you have this list of people from which you want to choose, and Judge Gorsuch is the person that I think most of your advisers are going to point to.’”
Take a look at Napolitano’s entire response in the video clip below:
On Fox Business this morning, Andrew Napolitano denies asking President Trump for a spot on the Supreme Court and says Trump is misleading about the pardon.
Is Fox News going to look into this at all? Are they going to at least pretend to care? pic.twitter.com/FozRl3YUVI
