Fox News hosts are ripping Trump from throwing America under the bus by delivering a disgusting press conference with Putin.
Video Fox News host Neil Cavuto:
Former Dep. Asst. Attorney General Tom Dupree said on Fox Business, “What I was hoping to see today and what we didn’t see a forceful condemnation of Russia’s interference —
Neil Cavuto, “There was none of that. Not even a hint of that. Zilch.”
Dupree continued, “That is what I wanted to see. All well and good for the president to talk about the Strzok and server and Hillary Clinton and all of that. But this wasn’t the time and the place this is the time and place for the president to look Putin squarely in the eye and said you will be punished for what you did in 2016, don’t ever think about doing that again.”
Cavuto added, “But he didn’t. That made it disgusting. That made his performance disgusting. Only way I feel. Not a right or left thing to me. It is wrong. U.S. President foreign soil talking to our biggest enemy or adversary or competitor, I don’t know how we define them away, essentially letting the guy get away with this, not even, offering a mild, a mild criticism. That sets us back a lot.”
Fox and Friends Weekend host Abby Huntsman tweeted:
No negotiation is worth throwing your own people and country under the bus.

Stuart Varney who is about as reliable of a Trump cheerleader as there is on Fox News and business hosted a panel that called out Trump for not confronting Putin:
Trump will get a full hour of propaganda when his interview airs with Sean Hannity tonight, but it is clear that his press conference disaster was met with a ton of negativity that is never normally heard on Fox News or Business about this president.
Trump has lost Fox, and the rest of the country is already gone.
