WATCH LIVE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL ENTERS Q&A PHASE

Twitter Completely Blasts Maria Bartiromo For Saying There Are No Allegations Against Trump

Yesterday, Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo used an interesting strategy during a panel discussion on the Sen. Al Franken story. With the panel lighting up Franken over his behavior in the wake of the allegations that he forcibly kissed and groped Leeann Tweeden in 2006, a former Obama administration official reminded Bartiromo that there were plenty of allegations against President Donald Trump.

Nuh-uh, according to the Fox Business anchor.

“Just to be clear, there are no allegations against the President,” she said, adding that the more than dozen accusations that came out last year don’t count because Trump “said during the campaign that wasn’t true.”

Needless to say, Bartiromo’s comments were widely mocked on Twitter after they went viral last night.

One ex-colleague of Bartiromo’s also sounded off:

Carlson was referencing the fact that Bartiromo came to Roger Ailes’ defense following Carlson’s sexual harassment charges against the ex-Fox News chief.
