One of my more guilty pleasures in the afternoon is watching Inside Edition, followed by Jeopardy. The reason I like watching Inside Edition is because they regularly show strange and unusual news stories.

Today, apparently, Trump called into FOX and Friends this morning just as the show started, and did an interview with them. For over 50 min from there, he ranted about the impeachment, what he thought of various people, and how unfairly the media was treating him. To their credit, the anchors stuck with him for most of the show, but towards the end, they looked decidedly uncomfortable, and Doocy even remarked that 50 min was a long time to go without a drink of water. The other guy started checking his e-mail live on the air halfway through while Trump was ranting.

Sad thing about this is that FOX and Friends created that monster themselves, because they would always listen attentively to anything that Trump called them up to talk about, so he thinks that he can use them as his own personal media outlet. And, if they were to cut Trump off, or say they had to go to another story, it would be disrespectful to Trump, and would more than likely piss off their viewers.

The really funny thing about the whole deal? During that whole hour this morning, they were unable to take a commercial break, so no revenue was generated for the station from that show.

Gonna be interesting to see how much longer FOX will put up with Trump.

If you want to see the whole unhinged interview, here is the link, if you just want to verify how long it went without watching the whole thing, just read the time window at the bottom of the screen.............................

They should send him a bill for the lost commercial spots.

Let 'em find out what the El Paso treatment looks like.

Ratings are utterly useless if you can't run commercials. That's the only reason ratings exist.

They're even terrible....Haven't been the same since they had hotties like Jill Brown and Hillary Andrews gracing the maps....Weather Nation is the only place you can get the weather now.
Hey, Oddball. I haven't seen you around lately. There's a couple of shows on the weather channel I like. One of em is World's Funniest Weather (clip). Then there's another show about being trapped/stuck in the elements and trying to survive until help come, I forget what it's called. There's a couple more, I forget the names of them, too.

I don't recall ever seeing Weather Nation. To be honest, it's a pain messing with the remote, I don't even know what channels I have. I think there's over a thousand, at least. These days I keep it on one channel and just turn the tv on and off.

Think most of the commericals on FOX are for stuff like anti-inflammatory pharmaceutical drugs and whatnot that they always say be careful, might give us suicidal/homicidal thoughts. Ever watch those things? Holy Moly! I'd rather just live with the vapors.

Once ya seen one, ya seen em all basically.

CNN and MSNBC could probably use a visit from Trump, seeing as how their ratings are crap.

Doesn't matter what we see. Commercials are where their money comes from. If an orange buffoon is monopolizing their time, it may draw flies but those flies are going to be put to no use at all if they can't be sold pickup trucks that will tow an asteroid, hemorrhoid creams and foam rubber face lacerations you can paste on. That time becomes all cost with no return.

Well..it says something that no one has even bothered thus far to comment on what Trump had to say...so:

Trump Advances Russian Disinformation Campaign in Fox News Interview

President Donald Trump on Friday advanced a Russian disinformation campaign aimed at the U.S. and its allies, endorsing a conspiracy theory less than 24 hours after his former top aide testified under oath that it was part of “a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services.”
The conspiracy theory, which took root and later spread among far-right Internet websites, conservative media and members of Trump’s inner circle, holds that Ukraine conspired against Trump during the 2016 election and colluded with his rival, Hillary Clinton, by hiding the Democratic National Committee’s email server. The theory claims that CrowdStrike, a security firm hired to investigate the hacking of emails from the DNC, covered up Ukraine’s role and framed Russia instead. In the President’s July 25 call that helped trigger the impeachment inquiry, Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to do him a “favor” and look into Crowdstrike.
The Ukraine theory has been dismissed as false by several of Trump’s current and former top advisors, including his former Homeland Security advisor and others, and by Russia policy experts who say circulating it benefits Moscow. Nevertheless, Trump once again made the false accusation Friday during a nearly hour-long call-in to the “Fox & Friends” morning show in an apparent attempt to defend himself against this week’s House Intelligence Committee impeachment hearings.
“They have the server from the DNC,” Trump told the three hosts.
“Who has the server?” asked co-host Brian Kilmeade.
“They gave the server to Crowdstrike or whatever it’s called, which is a company owned by a very wealthy Ukrainian,” Trump said. “And I still want to see that server. That’s a big part of this whole thing. Why did they give it to a Ukrainian company?”
“Are you sure they did that?” asked Steve Doocy, another co-host, shifting in his seat. “Are you sure they gave it to Ukraine?”
“Well, that’s what the word is,” Trump said. “That’s what I asked actually in my phone call, as you know.”
The theory has long been proven wrong — a point emphatically made just yesterday by Fiona Hill, Trump’s former top Russia adviser. The committee heard a similar statement Tuesday from Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, Trump’s current top Ukraine expert.

Tom Bossert, Trump’s former Homeland Security adviser, told ABC News in September that the accusation was being pushed by Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer. “It’s not only a conspiracy theory, it is completely debunked,” he said. “At this point, I am deeply frustrated with what he and the legal team is doing in repeating that debunked theory to the President. It sticks in his mind when he hears it over and over again… It has no validity. The United States government reached its conclusion on attributing the DNC hack to Russia in 2016 before it even communicated it to the FBI, long before the FBI ever knocked on the door of the DNC.”
Trump has been repeating the Ukraine theory since at least April 2017 when he told the Associated Press he “heard it’s owned by a very rich Ukrainian.” He would continue to refer to the false narrative in other interviews that the firm was owned by Ukrainians or based there, despite the fact that it is a U.S. company based in Sunnyvale, Calif., with no known ties to Ukraine.
As the Mueller probe gained steam in the summer of 2017, Fox News host Sean Hannity devoted segments of his show to the allegations that the Clinton campaign had received help from Ukrainian officials, with a banner of the country’s blue-and-yellow flag reading in all-caps “UKRAINIAN ELECTION INTERFERENCE?” Trump’s son Donald Jr. amplified the Ukraine theories after his infamous Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer became public in July 2017, retweeting that “DNC operatives actively worked with Ukrainian government officials to dig up oppo research,” and asking, “No outrage???”
Hill told the Intelligence committee these false narratives threaten U.S. national security interests. “In the course of this investigation, I would ask that you please not promote politically driven falsehoods that so clearly advance Russian interests,” she testified, adding: “The fictions are harmful even if they are deployed for purely domestic political purposes.”
