Telling it like it is

Stuart Varney is, along with Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs, Donald Trump’s most devoted hosts on Fox News and in a recent show he was visibly upset when Paul Romer, a former chief economist of the World Bank, called the people who speak about economics for the Trump administration, such as White House economics advisor Larry Kudlow, ‘liars for hire’ and that they should not be believed. When Varney remonstrated with him, Romer did not back down.

    As long as he decided to be a yell-er, rhetorically he failed in the end. Given that he means us to believe that he intends to stand by the truth, he has forgotten that people have feelings. Or he is hoping delusionally that Romer has any concern for feelings.

    Therefore he should have said “the truth is always the truth no matter if you don’t like the people who speak it”, and “the truth doesn’t care who you like”.

    They should have known he was a major critic of the Trump administration seeing that he has been openly going against not just Trump but also people like McConnell. He is also known to ignore attempts at steamrolling or pressuring him like Varney tried. And no one at Fox thought that he might be a problem when they invited him to talk?
    Serious case of the dealer being addicted to their own product. Or in this case them believing their own lies and propaganda to the point where they can’t imagine anyone would disagree.

    As a Dutchman I think the void politeness at the end quite funny: “Thank you Paul, we appreciate it”, just a few seconds after “I don’t like people being called liars on this show”.

    @who cares

    (just in case you care) Just like creationists try to “debate” PZ Myers in order to be legitimized, that’s what this weasel is doing, and he has succeeded. The whole point of this is just so he could clutch his pearls and be the delicate snowflake spinster church lady and say how his little baby fee-fee feewings are all hurty.

    He won.
