Fox News Host Neil Cavuto Cuts Off Kayleigh McEnany for Spreading Election Lies
"Unless she has more details to back that up, I can't in good countenance continue showing you this," Fox News' Neil Cavuto told viewers.

'WHOA, WHOA, WHOA'

"Unless she has more details to back that up, I can't in good countenance continue showing you this," Fox News' Neil Cavuto told viewers.

Updated Nov. 09, 2020 5:12PM ET / Published Nov. 09, 2020 5:04PM ET Fox News

In an unprecedented move on Monday afternoon, Fox News cut away from a press conference that White House Press Secretary was holding—likely illegally given her government role—on behalf of the Trump campaign.

As McEnany baselessly accused Democrats of actively stealing the 2020 presidential election from President Trump, host Neil Cavuto interrupted the event to tell Fox viewers what was actually going on.

"Whoa, whoa, whoa, I just think we have to be very clear," he said, talking over her. "She's charging that the other side is 'welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can't in good countenance continue showing you this."

"Maybe they do have something else to back that up," he added, "but that's an explosive charge to make, that the other side is effectively rigging and cheating." If McEnany did provide proof, Cavuto told viewers that his show would return to her press conference, but of course she never did.

"Not so fast," he added.

Cavuto has been one of the few Fox News hosts to challenge President Trump's lies, especially over the past several months. Back in May, he warned viewers not to take hydroxychloroquine on the president's recommendation, saying, "I cannot stress that enough. This. Will. Kill. You."

Two months later, he interrupted a speech that Trump was making to fact-check some false claims he was making about President Barack Obama's record. And he also grilled Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on what he described as her "reckless" plan to reopen schools during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In return, President Trump has repeatedly tweeted about Cavuto's "very bad ratings" and suggested that Fox News should fire him.

Kayleigh McEnany is one of those people who will probably never work again in the news business.

Trump doesnt really like Christians either, so she probably wont get a job in the Trump company. 

I think she'll be the next Michelle Bachmann, someone the country completely forgets about.

I think Kayleigh thought her landing the magic position with the President was going to be the Golden Egg of her career. Instead, her ego and stupidity blinded her to the reality of the situation and that instead of being her big career boost, it became her career bust.

It was underway even before the election.Rupert Murdoch had enough of Trump and his caustic attacks on  his company and staff, and his attitude that Fox News belonged to him and that Rupert was just his lacky in running the place. Murdoch was slowly backing away from Trump as he could see the writing on the wall, and he didn't get where his is by being a fool. 

However, Fox is built on being a rogue like entity, and viewers make him the money, so he is playing Trump for the fool he is to grow the large viewer base it now enjoys.

She intended to go on after Biden's speech and rail about voter fraud, the director told her that wasn't acceptable and she insisted that was  what was going to happen

so Fox directors told their young reporters at the Wilmington DE event to keep interviewing people

and they just didn't air Pirro.

Today she admitted she has been suspended.

The FOX nation is in revolt -

Will wonders never cease?

Now, with even Fox News abandoning the Trump ship, how is it that so many people believe the election was rigged?  They can't produce any evidence other than their feelings, admit that if Dems had rigged the election, they did a piss-poor job (I mean, leave a Republican Senate majority?), but still think it must have been rigged, because they don't like the results.

There's that.. and probably also because Trump said it was rigged-- and his loyal followers believe everything he says without question!

Trump was saying it was rigged even before the election, so he could prime the minds of his base like the fools they are and make them believe it will be rigged, even before the first vote had been cast.  Now he is fueling more violence and mistrust, and using his base to save his his own a$$, as he knows what he faces when he is no longer the President.

He does not care one whit about them or what happens to them, and laughs at them for being so stupid, but, he needs them to save himself so he is playing them for the fools they are.

Fox News abandoning the Trump ship

"Hey, Fox! What are you doing getting in one of those life rafts? The Trumptanic is unsinkable! You know that, right? We told you guys that, everything is fine, the iceberg was all fake news! Don't let a few sliding deck chairs fool you, we're steady as a rock here... guys? Look! Hannity and Carlson are over there doing shots still listening to the band, why can't you guys just show a little confidence? Just fake it till you make it! Guys...guys?!?"...

How she was ever a 'judge' I will never understand.

She doesn't have an impartial bone in her body.

I think she was only a judge for two years.  It was an elective office and she ran as a Republican.  I doubt that anyone appearing before her in court was favorably impressed.

She won that election in New York ( the first female elected to that office in that county), and also was elected County District Attorney (also the first woman in that position in that county) and reelection twice.

Really a pretty good career.

well, the way she bends over backwards and such for Trump, would be when, she had a teeney weeney bone in her, "impartial;", well, lets' just call it impractically a miracle if she felt, felt something for/from Trumppy
