“The president’s under the impression — and I don’t know why still — that if he says the Russians hacked, it makes his election look illegitimate. I’ve got news for you. Sen. Schumer and Hillary Clinton will never get over the fact that you won the election. Neither will 16 Republicans get over the fact that you won the primary. Did the Russians help you with that? No. From the day you came down the escalator, you shocked the world. It wasn’t because of Russia, but Russia’s goal was to upend our electoral process. They hate democracy.
“And I will say this to the president, when Newt Gingrich, when Gen. Jack Keane, when Matt Schlapp say the president fell short and made the intelligence apparatus look bad, I think it’s time to pay attention. And it’s easily correctable from the president’s perspective. Nobody’s perfect, especially with ten intense days of summits, private meetings, and everything else on his plate. But that moment is the one that’s going to stand out unless he comes out and corrects it.” – State TV host Brian Kilmeade, speaking today on Fox & Friends.
it’s extremely rare to see Steve Doocy even hinting at criticizing Trump. After Abby Huntsman criticizes Trump’s presser, Brian Kilmeade looks into the camera and tells Trump in the second person to accept that Russians interfered. pic.twitter.com/DFWP3T33iq
