Martha MacCallum, FOX, and TRUMP


Martha MacCallum is doing a new show called “Trump’s First 100 Days” (or something like that)….no problem.  What does bother me is that she was interviewed on Sunday saying “we’re going to hold his feet to the fire!”  (wait, like every other media venue won’t?)

Who ever held Obama’s feet to the fire, let along a TV channel which supposedly held his point of view?   CNN?  No.   MSNBC?  Heck no.

But FOX?  Ya, THEY’ll hold Trump’s feet to the fire……

Do I think it’s wrong to do that?  No.   Am I tired of having the one venue we can count on to better reflect OUR ideology tear apart those who support our ideology? You bet.

I’m a big fan of Martha’s…let’s see if that stays constant.

  1. Linda says:

    Fox isn’t as conservative, or as ‘balanced’ as ‘they’ say they are. I’m sure every decision PRESIDENT Trump will be vilified by all sides. ‘They’ need to give him a chance. I usually like Martha, but I guess we’ll see.


  2. Is Martha MacCallum a NeverTrumper?

    I’m asking because I don’t know.


  3. Mrs Grundy says:

    The MSM isn’t going to make sure that Trump CARRIES OUT his promises… THAT is what I hope Martha MacCallum means. That she will ensure that HE DOES!


  4. Lana Hessenius says:

    I continue to be disappointed in the political climate…the left feels that Trump is unqualified to be the president even though he won by a huge margin and all they can say is he will be a horrible president. The country needs to give him a chance.


  5. Sparky says:

    What “Linda” said above! Fox is not really very conservative anymore. I like Stuart Varney, but it’s mostly Financial News. These talking heads aren’t worth giving my time to anymore, in my never-to-be-humble opinion. Most of my news these days is from conservative on-line sources.


  6. geeez2014 says:

    Mrs. Grundy! You said “The MSM isn’t going to make sure that Trump CARRIES OUT his promises… ” Are you joking? They’re already slamming him for being unable to do ANYTHING he’s promised! Don’t you worry…he’ll be getting it from them AND, seemingly, from FOX.
    This is my point;
    Is ANYBODY going to support and understand and truly look into what’s happening without immediately jumping to the worst, negative conclusions? They HAVE before he’s even become president!


    Ivanka Trump supposedly has a big influence on her father; “Ivanka! Tell him he doesn’t have to stop tweeting, just STOP acting like a PUNK, okay? STOP the insults back, take the insults and answer as strong as he wants but WITH CLASS, is that SO HARD? Thanks, Z” !!!!!

    Linda, I think he deserves a chance, too. And I’m NOT his biggest fan, just became one when HILLARY LOST!

    Lana, the problem is he did NOT win by a ‘huge margin’…not of the vote, as you know.
    But legally, yes.

    Sparky, Varney’s good but CAVUTO IS KING 🙂 We’ve GOT TO KNOW that with HIS class, he cringes like I do over Trump’s tweets, but Cavuto gives him a pass….and Cavuto can say such strong things and remain dignified; I wish Trump would send his Tweet ideas first to Neil! 🙂
    OR ME, of course!! HAAA!


  7. Mrs Grundy says:

    They’re already slamming him for being unable to do ANYTHING he’s promised!”

    No, they’re slamming him because they don’t want him to build a wall or stop Islamic immigration and fear that he still MIGHT attempt to carry them out. They want Trump to believe that they’ve convinced YOU that he can’t.


  8. geeez2014 says:

    Mrs. Grundy, THEY’RE SLAMMING HIM, that’s what I said. Yes, they are.
    They want Trump to believe WE don’t think he can? I don’t think Trump’s the type who cares what I THINK, or what you think, frankly. There are FAR too many people who adore him, he doesn’t need me to go along with him.

    I do get what you’re saying but don’t agree with your point.
    I DO think this constant ‘drip drip drip’ of negatives toward Trump are hurting some of our resolve to back him, but They’re slamming him to insult him…to throw doubt on his abilities….

    And, by the way, if he’d stop the ridiculous parts of his Tweets, the hateful leftwing media’s have less fodder….STOP slamming the CIA, the FBI, Mexico, etc etc…PLEASE.


  9. Mrs Grundy says:

    lol! He should rely upon the media to distribute his message…

    How smart would THAT be?

    TWEET the night away, Mr. Trump!


  10. geeez2014 says:

    Mrs. G, WHEN are my readers going to understand this?:

    No, do NOT let the media distribute any message……….they only distribute the message THEY got from his tweets…..or just distribute (and correctly) what an ass he’s made of himself (and us) but some of his stupid tweets…

    What is SO hard about that???

    EVERYBODY: BOB BECKEL’S BAD ON THE FIVE TODAY! HAAAA!!! I kind of missed the jerk….I wonder if Juan got the boot?


  11. Mal says:

    Who cares! The heck with her and all that keep bashing Trump! After he becomes successful as POTUS, which I strongly feel he will, all the naysayers will become irrelevant anyway. And Z, as to his having won by a huge margin as Lana said, yes he did when you consider the electoral votes, not the popular votes. I believe that is what she was referring to as well as the % of U.S. land which was probably close to 90%.


  12. geeez2014 says:

    Mal, I think most people mean the popular votes when we talk about Margins…but yes, he won HUGE in the electoral votes, you’re right.
    He needs to stop with the ridiculous tweets, I don’t care what his majority of votes was.
    Don’t stop tweeting…just do it with dignity! As I said in my comment just above.
    WHy’s that so hard? Because it’s not in his nature.;..that troubles me.


  13. Mal says:

    As a reminder, Z. Tweeting helped get him elected, but yes, he needs to be very careful now that he will be in office.


  14. Mal says:

    ……………and I hope he does!


  15. geeez2014 says:

    MAL!!!!! TWEETING IS FINE….I NEVER said don’t tweet altogether!
    TWEET WITH DIGNITY, TWEET THE TRUTH after YOU KNOW THE TRUTH, TWEET like a MAN, not a 10 yr old schoolyard thin skinned kid!!
    That can’t be asking too much….particularly since I don’t know ONE OTHER POLITICIAN who’d allow himself to sound so much like a jerk!


  16. Mal says:

    I Agree, Z.


  17. Mal says:

    I wonder if his wife or daughter or anyone in his family is addressing his tweeting with him. He would probably be more open to them telling him that one in his cabinet.


  18. geeez2014 says:

    Looks like EVERY news venue seems to be giving Trump ONE HUNDRED DAYS to FIX THE WORLD…what the hell? Everybody, even FOX, is saying “let’s see what he does IN THE FIRST 100 DAYS” WHAT?


  19. geeez2014 says:

    John Lewis needs to grow up, too, by the way.


  20. geeez2014 says:

    SO glad Monica Crowley’s turned down the Trump post as one of his national security advisers….turns out she’d plagiarized thousands of words on the Phd she always has attached to her name on FOX.
    I used to laugh, by the way, at the COSBY SHOW when they listed BIll Cosby (who I LOVED) as Dr. Bill Cosby, Phd. 🙂 GeeeZ


  21. geeez2014 says:

    did anybody give Obama ONE HUNDRED DAYS??


  22. geeez2014 says:

    Just how many times is FOX going to mention the BIG CORPORATION money donated to the inauguration? CHEVRON! BOEING! Oh, the Left LOVES that to cry about…
    FOX… “SHUT UP!” 🙂


  23. Kid says:

    We gave obama 8 years and he hasn’t accomplished anything positive.


  24. Imp says:

    My 2 cents is that they have to appear to be objective, impartial, fair and balanced. FNC also knows that their competitors are incapable of any of those qualities. I don’t mind that FNC has been fair to Trump…..24 / 7 bad snowflake screeching and hate is unbearable. The alphabets are disgusting frauds and piss poor imitations of objective, truthful reporting. I hope Trump yanks all their press credentials. Damned if he does damned if he doesn’t.


  25. Imp says:

    @Z….In a nutshell…

    Number of states won:
    Trump: 30
    Clinton: 20
    Trump: +10

    Number of electoral votes won:
    Trump: 306
    Clinton: 232
    Trump: + 68

    Ave. margin of victory in winning states:
    Trump: 56%
    Clinton: 53.5%
    Trump: + 2.5 points

    Popular vote total:
    Trump: 62,958,211
    Clinton: 65,818,318
    Clinton: + 2.8 million

    Popular vote total outside California:
    Trump: 58,474,401
    Clinton: 57,064,530
    Trump: + 1.4 million

    **if you take California out of the popular vote equation, then Trump wins the rest of the country by 1.4 million votes.


  26. That’s what I’ve been saying. The Electoral College worked just as it was planned. No one state should elect a president who is so out of step with the rest of the country. We poor, uneducated, yahoos here in the mid west still count enough to change an election. One lefty state shouldn’t get to pick a candidate over the wishes of the rest of the country. Especially the California. Sorry Z. Is it any coincidence that California is the Bear Republic and Russia has the bear also? 🙂 Also, if one more lefty parrots the line that HRC won a majority of the popular vote I’m going to scream. She won a plurality not a majority. Big difference. France has open elections with popular vote winner. Most of the time they have a minority winner that wins a small slice of the vote. I don’t think we want to have an election like that. Take care.


  27. BTW, I trust Martha to be fair. She is very smart and is sarcastic. Great combination.


  28. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, RIGHT! But all we hear now is “what’ll Trump do his first 100 days”?? Of course, some of that’s his problem because he’s said so much WOULD happen very soon, but…this is NUTS to expect so much in 100 days….

    Imp; ya, well…alert the media, she apparently won the popular vote by almost 2 million votes. At least that’s what the voting people say.
    I never said I MIND that FOX has been fair to Trump. Quite the contrary, I’d like to see them BE truly fair to Trump…they are NOT. see comments above.

    Law and Order….I agree…except I know more fabulous Conservatives in California than you’d even believe. And we’ve had FABULOUS Republicans as governor..Deukmejian, Wilson, Arnold was voted for as a Republican but became a lib……
    Your facts don’t bother me, piling it on California as if there ARE no other liberals in this country does bother me BIG TIME. And that’s why I can never post any California articles here…if I dare criticize, everybody piles it on so hard I get pissed off 🙂


  29. geeez2014 says:

    Astronaut Gene Cernan , last man to walk on the moon, passed away today…at 82 yrs old. Please pray for his family. We salute you Mr. Cernan.


  30. Imp says:

    “She won a plurality not a majority. ”

    Bubba the Impeached, disbarred, Clinton “won” with only 42% of the popular vote…the EC saved him too.


  31. geeez2014 says:

    Make SURE you watch the left planning on destroying Inaugural balls….it’s an UNBELIEVABLE Video…let’s just HOPE the FBI has seen this.


  32. Kid,
    We gave obama 8 years and he hasn’t accomplished anything positive.

    Good one!


  33. geeez2014 says:

    Kid and AOW..RIGHT! And all the media, including FOX, are so concerned that TRUMP GETS IT RIGHT IN THE FIRST 100 DAYS!??? GEEEEEEZ


  34. Imp says:

    MLK today..” I Have a Nightmare…that 100 more years of racism and turbulence are now impossible to remedy because of those I left behind to guard the Dream.”


  35. Kid says:

    Imp – Good One !

    AOW and Z, Thanks.

    100 days? The libtards are setting a trap by creating an expectation that they can them come back and hammer on. What as Trump said he is going to do in 100 days? That’s what needs to be critiqued.

    PS – This Lewis turd who is maintaining Trump is an illegitame president…. The media is calling htis clown a “civil rights Icon”. Trump is right to call himn out. His district has poor to no education, welfare/WIC breeders, Drug and crime infested environment. Maybe he should be judged on these elements in terms of how he is serving his community as legislator.

    I don’t think Trump was hard enough on him actually.


  36. Mal says:

    Law and Order, I spent the first 58 years of my life in So. Calif. having move away in 1987 and was always proud to be a Californian, but I have to agree with you because it has turned 180 degrees from what I remember and loved. It’s so sad. A wonderful state gone to Hell.


  37. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, that TRAP is exactly what it is…sadly, it’s FOX, too….
    As for what he’s said he’s going to do….most of it’s pretty impossible, but at least if he’s working toward the things…like he’s saying the WALL will take 18 months to start…etc.
    How he’s going to pay for what he’s promised (Today it was HEALTHCARE FOR EVERYBODY!..OMG…Welcome, Canada!)……?? So the left’s laughing at that on CNN, too…

    From what I hear, John Lewis’ district actually does better than most so the Leftwing media’s all over that today…the ‘experts’ saying he was totally wrong on that one…again. It’s in Atlanta and it’s not a ghetto.


  38. geeez2014 says:

    Mal.. it’s no more ‘hell’ than any other area with lots of liberals, BELIEVE ME…Except, contrary to most lib places, I can see the ocean down the street..and snow covered mountains down the other way…this rain’s about fixed the drought and it couldn’t BE a more gorgeous night here…

    We’ve got nuts like the hateful Maxine Waters “I’m not going to work with TRUMP!” Well, can we blame them? There was a whole thing the other night on CNN which I caught five minutes of…the ‘big secret meeting’ the Republicans held when Obama was inaugurated talking about how they’ll never support anything of his. And we expect better from the LEFT NOW??


  39. Kid says:

    Z, I saw the HC for everyone today and my initial reaction was close to yours. I’m anxious to see what the actualy details are. The promise is a doctor patient focus which is most definitely needed.

    Also, 2017 was to bring the really evil parts of obamacare into our lives. Someone should put those details out so people understand that. I think few do.

    Lewis? Ok, but I maintain democrats don’t do squat for their modern day voting slaves. How nice it would be to see some resolutions to this, but that is really pie in the sky stuff. Horse to water in short.

    Z, Ok, I gotta weigh in on California now. I know much of California is red. It’s a beautiful state and if it wasn’t so expensive, I’d have a California or Bust sign on my retirement vehicles. I love La Jolla for example.

    But the thing to realize is that the legislation of California is what gets out to the rest of the country. The massive debt that Jerry Brown just canceled. 38 billion I think. Then all the stuff we see in the ‘news’. Sexual assault teachers sitting at home for years still on the payroll, Progressive legisation. Sanctuary cities. San Francisco –

    This is what makes it’s way out to fly over country and why people initially react negative to California. I wouldn’t take it so much to heart.


  40. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, I take it WAY to heart because people know I’m a Californian and love it and I personally would NEVER say anything about a blogger’s state that was negative, knowing that.
    Also, if California were the only nutty state, I’d agree…It’s not. Yes, I do take it to heart. I think most would.
    But thanks.
    And my sister lives at La Jolla….ON THE BEACH. Tough stuff.


  41. Kid says:

    Z, Ok. 🙂


  42. Living there must be tough, but someone’s gotta do it.


  43. geeez2014 says:

    Ed, exactly! 🙂 thanks.
