What does it take to get CNN’s Don Lemon and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough to applaud something that happened on Fox News Channel? Ask Neil Cavuto.
Last Thursday, Cavuto took to the anchor chair for his “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” a show that has been on the Fox News lineup in some form since the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news outlet launched in 1996. In 2018, he still has the power to surprise.
“Now, I’m not saying you’re a liar,” Cavuto said to President Donald Trump at the end of his program, which is typically used for a commentary segment called “Common Sense.” “You’re the president. You’re busy. I’m just having a devil of a time figuring out which news is fake. Let’s just say your own words on lots of stuff give me, shall I say, lots of pause.” He went on to list a number of things President Trump had said were true that proved to be false, or said were false and then were proved to be true. “You probably might not care. But you should. I guess you’ve been too busy draining the swamp to stop and smell the stink you’re creating,” said Cavuto. “That’s your doing. That’s your stink. Mr. President, that’s your swamp.”
