Seth Meyers Rips FOX News For ‘Slobbering Over Trump’

“Most of the country agrees with Meyer’s assessment of the debate as largely useless and of President Trump as anything but the clear winner according to polls.”

President Trump is getting a lot of rave reviews for his performance in Tuesday night’s Presidential debate. The one place that seems to think the President was the clear winner is FOX News.

Seth Meyers not only pushed back on the idea that Trump was the clear winner. On his NBC show Late Night with Seth Meyers, the host questioned if the entire event was not one gigantic loss.

“Debate is not the right word. It was more like a collective brain hemorrhage. It was like watching democracy get a lobotomy,” he said.

FOX News pundit Dan Bongino said that Trump looked like an “apex predator”. In a separate segment, host Sean Hannity said that Trump was a “gladiator warrior.” Meyers bashed both of those takes.

“You watched that debate and saw an ‘apex predator’ and a ‘gladiator warrior fighter’? Because he didn’t look like a predator to me. Most of the time, he stood there with his head cocked like an old dog who just heard a twig snap. He held onto that podium the way my grandma holds onto her walker when they’re reading the Powerball numbers.

“When they weren’t slobbering all over him, Fox pundits and GOP allies were pretending they watched a different debate altogether,” he added.

Most of the country agrees with Meyer’s assessment of the debate as largely useless and of President Trump as anything but the clear winner according to polls.

Meyer’s vitriol was not reserved solely for FOX. He also called out former Senator and current CNN pundit Rick Santorum for his reaction to the President to whiffing when asked to condemn white supremacist organizations.

Meyer introduced a clip of Santorum’s defense of the President by saying the former Senator “for some reason, is still a CNN commentator—doing his level worst.”

He was asking the president to do something that he knows the president doesn’t like to do,” Santorum said of moderator Chris Wallace. “Which is, say something bad about people who support him.”

“I guess by that same token, Trump would accept an endorsement from ISIS if they praised him,” Meyer said, gobsmacked that Santorum would consider that an acceptable defense. “If they were smart, they would start waving Trump flags from the back of their trucks.”

Former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against CNN in October; now, over a month later, the cable news channel is asking a judge in Florida to toss the case (h/t The Hill).

Trump filed the lawsuit against CNN because he accuses the network of defaming his character during the 2020 Presidential Election. Trump’s attorneys argued CNN “has sought to use its massive influence — purportedly as a ‘trusted’ news source.”

Additionally, Trump’s lawyer says that CNN attempted “to defame the Plaintiff in the minds of its viewers and readers for the purpose of defeating him politically, culminating in CNN claiming credit for ‘[getting] Trump out’ in the 2020 presidential election.”

CNN lawyers have pushed back against Trump’s claims saying that the former president “seeks to silence any criticism of Plaintiff’s debunked claim that the 2020 presidential election was ‘stolen.’”

“Any alleged association resulting therefrom are also ‘rhetorical hyperbole’ and ‘pure opinion’ under well-established principles of defamation law,” CNN’s lawyers added.

Rumors have swirled over Fox and News Corp. possibly merging into one entity, but Irenic Capital, which owns about 2% of News Corp., has taken issue with its potential merger.

A merger would produce a more complicated company and turn off investors rather than increase the company’s lagging stock price, Irenic Capital stated in a letter to the News Corp. board.

“And even if such synergies do exist today, they would principally benefit Fox and reside in the News Media segment of News Corp,” Irenic Capital said (h/t Deadline). “For example, Fox Business may benefit from greater integration with The Wall Street Journal and some of Dow Jones’ other properties, but it is highly debatable whether the benefits from such an association flow both ways.

“Combining News Corp with Fox will result in a combined company that is obviously more complex than both companies left separate.” 

Irenic believes a unification would aid Fox far better than News Corp. and cautioned that the board has a fiduciary responsibility to investigate all possible routes to develop value beyond the one suggested by its primary shareholder.

Fox News held its annual All-American Tree Lighting at FOX Square in New York, New York Monday during “The Five.” The event was hosted by Greg Gutfeld, Judge Jeanine Pirro, Dana Perino, Jessica Tarlov and Jesse Watters

In a release, the network said it partnered with the Police Athletic League (PAL) to host a toy drive benefiting New York City’s youth. The network also honored first responders by selecting representatives of the FDNY and NYPD to light this year’s tree.

Guests included FOX News personalities and their families along with first responders from the NYPD and FDNY, including members of NYPD Precinct 32, who lost Wilbert Mora and Jason Rivera this year, and members of EMS Station 49, who lost EMS captain Alison Russo earlier this year.

FOX’s All-American Christmas tree stands at 50 feet tall and is adorned by 12,000 ornaments and 340,000 lights. The tree has 500 branches, a star topper that is over six feet tall and more than four miles of cord wrapped throughout.  Made in America, the tree features a patriotic theme of red, white, and blue decorations.

“After a busy year in America, it’s nice to, let’s just take a step back and celebrate traditions like this and remember how important it is to come together and focus on what truly matters,” said co-host Dana Perino. “This tree is not just for us to enjoy. We want you watching at home to be able to come here and make Christmas memories with your family and friends and of course, your pets, too, of course, as you can imagine.”
