Fox News Host Claims They ‘Couldn’t Find a Single Republican to Defend Trump’

Uh, hello! Fox News must not have been checking anywhere that actually had Republicans! Perhaps they were poking around Berkley? I’m not sure. All I know is that I would have come on air and defended my president with all of my heart!

Fox News host Shepard Smith claimed their booking team apparently attempted to get a Republican on-air in order to defend President Trump and what he had to say about the Charlottesville violence. However, he says that they couldn’t find a single one.

I have such a hard time believing that he actually tried, though.

He said, “Let’s be honest, Republicans don’t often really mind coming on Fox News Channel. We couldn’t get anyone to come and defend him here because we thought, in balance, someone should do that,” Smith continued, “We worked very hard at it throughout the day, and we were unsuccessful. And of those who are condemning the president’s condemnable actions, I’ve not heard any prominent leaders, former presidents, members of the House or the Senate use his name while speaking in generalities.”

The Hill reports:

Smith’s comments followed an off-the-rails press conference by Trump on Tuesday, during which he reasserted claims that “both sides” were to blame for violence during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville on Saturday that ultimately left one dead and at least 19 others injured.

“You had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest and very legally protest,” Trump said, referring to individuals protesting against the removal of a Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee statue in the town.

“Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch.”

Various Republicans have spoken out against white supremacy and bigotry following Trump’s press briefing.

“We must be clear. White supremacy is repulsive. This bigotry is counter to all this country stands for. There can be no moral ambiguity,” House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) tweeted after Trump’s remarks.

I believe that Trump did exactly what he should have. He disavowed and condemned the hate groups on both sides. How can ANYONE be upset with him for that?
