Fox & Friends on Comey Confirming Investigation of Trump’s Russian Ties: ‘You Didn’t Miss Much’


On Tuesday, Fox & Friends decided to summarize James Comey‘s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee by saying that the revelations that came out of it were hardly important.

The FBI director’s appearance drew massive political intrigue after Comey not only refuted Trump’s claims of being wiretapped by Barack Obama, he also said that an investigation is underway into the Trump campaign’s apparent connections to Russia during the 2016 election. As for Fox’s morning show, they decided to tell their Twitter audience that those who missed the five hours of testimony “didn’t miss much.”

The video Fox tweeted out was a series of jump cuts from moments where Comey declined to answer certain questions, citing the sensitivity of the investigation and the FBI’s practices. Fox also had Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway on the show today, where she wrote off the Russian collusion allegations in order to blast those leaking information about Trump administration activities.

Various individuals took notice of the tweet, and some of them made it clear that they were not impressed with the oversimplified characterization:
