Cavuto Rips Trump in Fiery Monologue: While Focusing on a Financial Boom, You’re Creating a ‘Moral Bust’

Fox News’ Neil Cavuto lowered the boom on President Donald Trump during the closing moments of his Thursday show.

He started by playing a clip of Trump telling Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt,“If I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash. I think everybody would be very poor.”

Cavuto called that “quite a threat.”

“What the president is saying, is we are all making gravy, so why stop the train? Well, I don’t know,” Cavuto continued on. “Maybe, because the train could be resting on shaky tracks. Or the conductor of that train has said and done some shaky things or at least said some inconsistent things.”

He then continued on:

All I’m saying is you don’t prevent a constitutional crisis by threatening a financial one. Mr. President, you — your actions and words create that crisis or make people think you’re hiding the crisis, like when you say you knew nothing about payments to a stripper and a former Playboy model until you did, then explain your former lawyer Michael Cohen made those decisions until we heard on tape that you did. Just like you said you nothing about a Trump Tower meeting back in June 2016 that included your son, Donald Trump Jr., and some Russian officials. Then clarified that that meeting really wasn’t about dirt on Hillary Clinton., then it was about Russian adoptions. Then, clarified yet again that nothing came of the meeting of what you knew nothing, so there’s nothing to see here, move on. But you see, that’s the problem here. We can’t move on. Lots of stuff like that keeps popping up here.

Then after rattling off a laundry list of Trump’s inconsistent statements and lies, Cavuto then concluded: “I know you’ll call this fake, but the implications of what you’re doing, Mr. President, are very real. You are so darned focused on promoting a financial boom that you fail to see that you are the one creating this moral bust.”
