Over at Fox News — aka Trump TV — they’re working overtime to try and discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller because they know he’s getting closer to the Oval Office with this investigation and may be on the verge of unsealing more indictments, some of which may include the name of Donald Trump.
On The Ingraham Angle Friday evening, Jesse Watters — a former protégé of serial sexual harasser Bill O’Reilly — even went so far as to say that Mueller is the 2020 Democratic candidate for president. What he neglected to add, however, is that Mueller is a lifelong Republican.
Watters, who was guest hosting for the always shrill Laura Ingraham, declared:
“It seems like Mueller’s basically the Democrat candidate for president. He’s the only person that can stop Donald Trump’s reelection. And the Democrats are putting all their eggs in the Mueller basket and if he clears everybody else after this, they have nothing!”
Actually, Jesse, the person most likely to keep Donald Trump from being reelected is Donald Trump himself. He’s the least popular sitting president in the history of polling and just this week he proved that those middle-class voters in swing states like Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania who helped him win in 2016 mean nothing to him. Millions of average Americans are about to get the shaft thanks to Trump’s tax cut for the wealthy.
The deluded Watters also defended Republicans who have cranked up their specious attacks on the Russia investigation and Robert Mueller in recent weeks:
“This is just Republicans working the refs. I mean, you know, when a coach yells at the officials and next time they maybe get a better call.
“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with criticizing the Mueller investigation if something’s wrong. Evidence of blatant anti-Trump bias by investigators isn’t justification for questioning the probe? You kidding me?”
There is, however, something wrong with defending a man — Donald Trump — who may have committed treason.
