‘Fox & Friends’ Calls Donald Trump ‘Weak,’ Tries to Goad Him Into War With Iran
The president’s favorite morning team ditched their white couch for a fire-red set to argue for war, while Twitter panicked that he’s watching with his finger on the button.

The Fox & Friends morning crew was fired up Friday morning, ditching their usual white sofa for a red-backed war room set to discuss President Trump’s last-minute abandoning of airstrikes against Iran overnight.

Hosts Brian Kilmeade and Ainsley Earhardt were at odds about what the news meant. An unusually dovish Earhardt insisted Trump “knows more than we do” and that “something’s happening behind the scenes, there’s a reason he hunkered down.”

Kilmeade instead seemed to goad the president, implying that his hesitance to attack Iran was a weakness. At times almost sounding like he was directly addressing the president, who is known to be a fan of the show, Kilmeade insisted that “North Korea’s watching. Turkey’s watching. Russia’s watching. China...”

They then brought on a retired general who insisted that Trump was playing checkers with Iran when he should be playing chess. Earhardt repeated the Trump mantra that sanctions on Iran were working and tried to assure the audience that the president surely has a strategy.

Kilmeade, clearly worked up, all but yelled at his co-host. “No! The sanctions have been in place before. This is Iran’s response to the sanctions,” he said. “Where is America’s response to Iran’s belligerence?”

“They blow up four tankers and we do nothing. When they blow up our drone that costs $130 million and we do nothing. We know it’s not going to end there. So at some point, in the Middle East, no action looks like weakness, and weakness begets more attacks.”

He's right. of course. 

Look what happened with Iraq! At first we were weak and backed down from fully committing (just like Trump has been, so far with Iran). But then we woke up and finally committed to the War on Iraq-- and finally we've had tremendous success there (not only in Iraq, but in fact in the entire Middle East!!!).

What if these amateur morons goad Trump into war?

Fox News types have been aching for a war with Iran for years. Let the three of them volunteer to go over there and parachute into Tehran. Give them body cameras so we can see what happens.

Wasn't one of Trump's campaign promises that he would end our involvement in stupid unnecessary wars?

It was always a no-win for Trump. The left blames him for anything that happens. If he takes action he is a warmonger, if he shows patience the right calls him weak.

Politically, he is better off to hold off until AFTER the 2020 election, then punish Iran with a vengeance!

What actions do you think Iran will take if Trump "punishes Iran with a vengeance"?

It won't go that far

Things are not going well for Iran, and they acting out because the sanctions are  working.....they are broke.

They'll try to somehow wage war with the US Navy and that should last about one week. Let their people do what they want after that. No boots on the ground, no occupation and no political cost since in my hypothetical, it's done after the election.

You seem to think Iran is our equal. If we had like minded people around during the 1930's and 40's the Axis would still be in power.

People don't trust him, because, wait for it, he's not trustworthy!

 Trump is a dishonest dirt bag.  Always has been.  Always will be.  There are only 2 things that twirl his tassels in different directions:  Himself and money.  But is he weak? Perhaps.  But weakness has nothing to do with his decision to stop the air strikes on Iran last night.

Exxon/Mobil has a $53 billion-dollar energy deal with Iraq.  The deal has been put on hold because of the escalating tensions between the US and Iran.  In fact, Exxon/Mobil evacuated 60 employees last month out of 'an over-abundance' of caution.  

Donald Trump personally owns nearly 2 million shares of Exxon/Mobil.  Anyone who thinks Trump cares more for 150 Iranians than he does his nearly 2 million shares of Exxon/Mobil is a straight up idiot.
