Fox anchor trashes Trump after interview with Maria Bartiromo

Fox News, which until recently was the only viable right-leaning cable news network for American conservatives to watch, hasn’t done any favors for itself in the wake of the 2020 election, with thousands of fans vowing to watch smaller, emerging competitors instead.

That sentiment continued to grow over the weekend, according to Breitbart, after Fox News weekend anchor Eric Shawn blasted President Donald Trump’s earlier appearance on the network, claiming that Trump “can’t wrap his brain or mind around the fact” that he lost the 2020 election.

Shawn, who has never appeared to be a supporter of the president, played clips of Trump’s appearance with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday morning, in which Trump continued to claim that the election was rigged and that voter and ballot fraud was rampant.

“That is, of course, President Trump claiming massive voter fraud this morning. His words, ‘they stuffed the ballot box.’ It was, quote, a ‘fake election.’ All this despite the fact that his campaign has failed to prove any of this in court,” Shawn said.

“In fact, your government, election officials, experts, and others — many of them Republican — including Trump-appointed officials say that the president’s claims are false and unsubstantiated,” the Fox News host added, before adding that Trump’s repeated claims have caused supporters to “doubt the veracity of the election.”

Shawn then played a clip of Trump telling Bartiromo about the “massive dumps” that many states did during the counting of the votes, which his legal team has called into question in many of the key battleground states.

As expected, Shawn had an answer for that, insisting that “officials” said the dumps were not illegal, rather, they were just part of the massive influx of mail-in votes that were received in this election cycle.

According to Business Insider, Shawn, who was joined by Axios political reporter Hans Nichols in debunking the president’s claims, took a final parting shot at the president before closing the show.

“It seems that we have a president who, he can’t wrap his brain or mind around the fact, he can’t process that someone who he thinks is so inferior to him won the election,” Shawn added.

With as much legal action that’s still ongoing in a number of courts, to possibly include an upcoming U.S. Supreme Court challenge, Fox News anchors should probably wait a few weeks for the dust to settle before they’re possibly forced to eat their words next month.

Newsmax is my choice for accurate news, Fox has destroyed all credibility and deserves to suffer the backlash from once loyal viewers who will never return again. Hasta Luego Baby!!!!

The most watched Fox stars are Tucker, Sean and Laura. I am certain they have made enough money that they can retire from Fox permanently or long enough to find a position elsewhere. If they value their reputations, they should tell Fox bye!!!Much as I admire these 3 and never fail to watch each night—I’m done. Never again.

I fully agree these key figures plus some at Fox Business News (Then Newsmax can start a good business channel ( sans Cavuto) But keep in mind these key Conservative Fox Stars are surely under contract and leaving doesnt free them up to go to a competing channel. But if they have built a good nest egg then they could quit and take a year or two (what ever is required by law) off. Newsmax might work on a way to help support them for that period while they work on their new shows etc.

I was getting very “disappointed” in Fox for a long time. I didn’t have to watch Shepard Smith, so I really didn’t care about whether he was on Fox or not, but Juan Williams and his bigoted ignorance made me forget that Mom raised me (or tried to) to be a lady. I really liked the other four members of The Five, but him…oh boy! Bret Beier was beginning to get to me and my husband was ranting about Cavuto, so when Fox joined the other members of Pravda on election night – that was it for me. I switched to Newsmax that night and have stayed there. I just wish Spectrum offered OAN!

He is one of the many reasons I don’t watch Fox News anymore. He is like a spoiled child and he is the one that can’t wrap his head around the fact that maybe – just maybe- the election was rigged. Why doesn’t he take some of his angry and do some investigating – like he should- and prove our President wrong. He is just another human that is being led to slaughter. Such a pathetic man!

Once a dedicated Fox fan, I refuse to watch any longer. I appreciated hearing the conservative take from some of their commentators. With the lying liberals infiltrating most of the Fox programs, I can no longer listen. If I wanted to hear the liberal garbage, I would watch CNN. Fox has become CNN jr. – disgusting !!!

If Shawn can’t see evidence that played out on the tv screen right before our eyes on election night, he might be complicit. There is a lot more and witnesses. Fox is just another CNN or MSNBC. Not worth my time. The Trump Campaign will not be presenting to the Media. The case has been and will be presented in a court of law at the appropriate time. Until then you might do well to stop judging.

Disgusted. Worst last 30 yrs. of my life. Political decay everywhere. My young students, so many years ago, must have become confused with the ‘today-reality’, slaughter, chaos in the streets, destruction of other people’s businesses and homes, spoiled brat adults, some well-seasoned and well educated ‘charity-kids’….
Taxpaying and hard working men and women, teenagers who work, pay the taxes required to re-build those destroyed homes and mom & pop businesses. Yes, Virginia, there really is a SWAMP running the American Government, in the Republic that is our country. TWO WRONGS DON’T EVER!

Does anyone recall Shawn’s diatribes about Hillary and the Democrats refusing to accept that she’d lost the 2016 election? The book blaming it on everyone and everything but Hillary and her lame Obama oriented campaign? The Mueller investigation – a waste of more than thirty million taxpayer dollars over fictional charges commissioned by Clinton and the DNC? He must have gone ballistic over that!

People like Shawn, Sandra Smith, Chris Wallace, Leland Vitter, and others, have just proved they are not worthy of the attention the viewers have given them over the years, which drove them into the number 1 spot. Well, the viewers have just fired the lot of them, given how the FOX ratings are plummeting and will continue to plummet. The fact that even CNN and MSNBC did better than FOX in the ratings should tell the FOX owners something about their base and what viewer loyalty means in their business. Apparently, they had not figured that out yet. I used to watch FOX all day. Now I might watch Tucker, maybe, unless he, too, gets on the new FOX bandwagon, a bandwagon heading into the ratings hell. Maybe if these conceited clowns paid more attention to what Guliani presented, with affiant testimony, in the Pennsylvania Senate hearing and what Sidney Powell has included in her suits filed, they might actually learn something. President Trump, I hope and pray, will have the last laugh.

My days of watching FOX News is over, I am now a Newsmax fan. FOX blew it when they called AZ to stinking Biden. They have lost their ways and will suffer greatly for it.
There are a couple FOX Business folks I will still watch on the business channel that is Lou Dobbs, and Varney and Charles and Bartimore. So far the business channel is pretty stable conservatives. I always liked FOX and Friends to bad they are on Fox News channel.
Newsmaxs is really good and I like what I see. Dr Davis – Iowa

I think a THOROUGH investigation could overturn an election. I kind of think once Biden is sworn we will hear rumors of behind closed door bragging the “we got away with it”. That’s what the mucked up mail-in voting was all about and state officials trying to extend counting dates they had no authority to even think about. State rules don’t supersede election laws and rule s for federal elections.

Patty (@guest_1081715)

When the “news” becomes unbiased and reports only the facts, then I will pay attention. No wonder those “Biden” voters said if they’d known half the facts, they never would have voted for him. So looks like those few who actually voted for him got fooled by Fox & the rest of them who have been and still are on a smear campaign. I guess if you say something enough times, it makes it true, right? Well, we’ll see. There is just too much evidence that this election was rigged from the beginning of Trump’s presidency, it can no longer be ignored. Go ahead Fox, keep on acting like the rest of the sham journalists and do all your boot licking to Biden….I truly pray all the facts come out and all cheaters are exposed.

Who is this “reporter”? I never heard of him. There is one major flaw in his argument. Many, if not most, of these court cases were thrown out without hearings, consequently no testimony (proof of fraud) made it to the courts!

Christine Getter (@guest_1081718)

President Trump and 73 million of his supporters can’t wrap our minds around this “lose”. We know it isn’t true on many levels and the truth is right there in front of us all. Losing the election legitimately would be acceptable but this election is the single worst crime committed against the American people. Cheating is just that….. and in an election it is a real crime and anyone who participated in this crime should be in federal prison. I will be watching NEWSMAX from now on, I am fed up with the nasty undertones coming from ALL media and especially disappointed in FOX. You got to number one on the back of our 45th President and now I couldn’t care less how far you fall.
