Watch: Fox News Abruptly Cuts Off Trump’s Press Conference After He Starts Rambling Stupidities
Donald Trump held a press conference in San Antonio, Texas on Wednesday and Fox News was covering it – that is until the president started rambling incoherently about fences and trucks so the network had to cut him off abruptly.
“If we had the wall, the good people will not be able — you’ll see them on the other side of the wall,” Trump said. “Number one, they won’t come, because they’ll say there’s no way of getting through. Right now they think there’s a way to get through. And the people back home never hear about that, they start to walk. They tell them Houston’s half a mile away, but it’s 300 miles. It’s desert.”
“This is a vast state, it’s a vast area. You look at it, the state’s tremendous,” said Trump, who seemed genuinely stunned that Texas occupied a large land area. “I come from New York. You have Fifth Avenue and that connects you to Park Avenue, its not too far away, but this is hundreds of miles between places.”
Trump then began rambling incoherently.
“They’re very expensive fences, but they don’t want to go through the process of going through the fences, so, again, they wait until the fence is open, the gate is open. They wait at the gate and they kill people,” said Trump. “They want to take the truck, a lot of times they don’t even want to go to the house, they want to steal the truck. So you always go to the gate in doubles.”
“It’s been going on for many years, it’s coming up, I’m bringing it out,” Trump added. “And these people are coming into our country, some are dying during the walk. Many of those people I’ll bet are very good people, but some are dying during the walk. Many, many have died. That is what surprised me.”
That’s when Fox News noticed the president started to sound even more stupid so they decided to cut him off.
“Okay, you’ve been watching the president down there in Texas,” said host Dana Perino cutting back to the studio, “doing something I think is smart.”
