Fox News host Neil Cavuto gave Donald Trump a piece of his mind yesterday after Trump was caught making contradictory statements about a payment of $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels, saying that Trump’s habit of making inaccurate statements only perpetuated the “swamp.”
“Let me be clear, Mr. President. How can you drain the swamp if you’re the one that keeps muddying the waters? You didn’t know about the $130,000 payment to a porn star until you did,” Cavuto said.
“You said you knew nothing about your lawyer Michael Cohen handling this, until acknowledging today you were the guy behind the retainer payment that took care of this,” he continued. “You insist that money from the campaign or campaign contributions played no role in this transaction. Of that you’re sure. The thing is, not 24 hours ago, sir, you couldn’t recall any of this. And you seemed very sure.”
“I’m not saying you’re a liar,” Cavuto added. “You’re a president, you’re busy. I’m having a devil of a time figuring out which news is fake. Let’s just say that your own words on lots of stuff gave me lots of pause.”
Cavuto then launched into a very long list of lies that Trump has told that have later been exposed, and I’ll tell you now, he didn’t have to look hard.
First off, Trump claimed without a doubt that the Russians did not meddle in the 2016 presidential election, a point that has since been refuted by countless agencies.
He also claimed other ridiculous things like his inauguration was the biggest or that he had signed more bills than any of the presidents before him.
“None of this makes what you say fake. Just calling out the press for being so, a bit of a stretch,” Cavuto said.
“But more oftentimes they’re using your own words to bash you. Your base probably might not care. But you should,” he continued. “I guess you’re too busy draining the swamp to ever stop and smell the stink you’re creating. That’s your doing. That’s your stink, Mr. President. That’s your swamp.”
