‘No. It’s Not Fake News’: Maria Bartiromo Finally Loses It With Trump

"For the record, there were no stipulations."

Last weekend, Donald Trump lambasted Fox News for the network’s decision to suspend Jeanine Pirro following a truly egregious Islamophobic rant aimed at Ilhan Omar.

In addition to calling for Pirro to be put back on the air immediately, the president also accused two Fox anchors of being “trained” by CNN.

During the same two-day Twitter tirade, Trump renewed his war of words with John McCain. That war of words is a one-sided affair because, by virtue of being dead, McCain cannot respond. Fortunately, his daughter can.

“Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier ‘is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain’”, Trump tweeted, apparently quoting Ken Starr.

He continued: “[McCain] had far worse ‘stains’ than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!”

Meghan McCain was not amused. “No one will ever love you the way they loved my father”, she shot back, adding the following:

I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?

Trump didn’t let it go.

A few days later, while seated next to Brazil’s fascist president Jair Bolsonaro, Trump reiterated that he is “not a fan” of McCain and then, while shouting at workers gathered at a tank factory in Ohio, Trump said this:

 

Long story short, he’s pushing this issue too far for some Republicans’ liking, testing the boundaries like a toddler.

Well, believe it or not, former CNBC “money honey”-turned shameless sycophant Maria Bartiromo appeared to reach her breaking point with the president during an interview that aired on Friday.

When Bartiromo pressed Trump on McCain, he tried to suggest he’s never the one who brings up the late senator. That is obviously a lie. Nobody told him to start tweeting about McCain last weekend.

Pressed further by Bartiromo, Trump became visibly angry, and eventually accused Maria of being “fake news”, to which she shot back: “No. It’s not fake news.” Here is the clip:

 

Do note that the most disconcerting part of that entire exchange was the moment when Trump accidentally admitted that Fox “wasn’t supposed to bring it up.”

Here’s the transcript, which you can keep for posterity.

Bartiromo would later say this:

For the record, there were no conditions or stipulations agreed to ahead of the interview.

Nothing further.

    Do small hands have any correlation to brain size?

    There is something wrong with the order we are in if a leader gets to be this stupid. It says more about democracy and it’s weak points than it does about trump. It also says a lot about the state of a society if a member is this devoid of any semblance of rational thought, knowledge, morality, adherence to facts and truth, instead is filled with childish egoism visible instances of brain farts and self imagery, to the point i feel humiliated having to watch him speak. The thought that other members of the American society are not as stupid and disgusting as trump isn’t very comforting because the bar is set so low that even the ones who stand much higher than him in quality are actually still within the confines of what science and humanity would consider stupid. This is what happens when you teach whole generations that capitalist profit motive is morally right, they begin to loose all morality and with it everything else in favor of profits.

    • This is what happens when the support for good education drops further downward each year. The “dumbing down of America” goes on. Many of the DJT supporters I meet know little or nothing of economics, civics, history, science, math or even any current events. Doubt this? Well check it out for yourself.
