Outnumbered Pans Trump, Giuliani for Mishandling Stormy Saga: ‘I Cannot Comprehend This’
Friday’s panel on Fox News show Outnumbered was collectively baffled by Rudy Giuliani’s apparent decision to throw gasoline on the Stormy Daniels fire.
Guy Benson, today’s #OneLuckyGuy, said that between the contradicting stories, conflicting timelines, and the news that Giuliani is about to revise his statements from the last two days, the Daniels story is “not going well” for the White House.
“This is Story Number 7, then they have to go to Story Number 8 in two days. That’s not good planning,” Benson said.
Lisa Kennedy then got in the mix. While noting that she feels the Daniels reimbursement story a major distraction from more important issues, Kennedy conceded, “you should just really put out the honest set of facts from the get-go so you don’t have to change anything.”
Lisa Boothe offered similar commentary, saying “[if] he needs to learn the subject matter. Why in the Lord’s name is he out talking to the public right now? I cannot comprehend this.”
“There’s nothing more frustrating than seeing someone seeing create more problems that didn’t need to exist for themselves. So seeing this train-wreck go down is incredibly frustrating. Also, just from a legal standpoint, if you’re the president, I would be worried that this is your team representing you and a host of serious legal problems right now with the Mueller investigation and also with the Cohen issue as well. You’ve got to be worried right now.”
The panel continued to acknowledge the problematic aspects of the new development, though Melissa Francis tried to move on by asking “does anybody in America still care about this?”
Kennedy noted that the Daniels intrigue was reinvigorated since Giuliani “gave the centipede 200 more legs,” and Boothe shot back that “the story could have ended a long time ago.”
“There’s no reason we should be talking about it right now, to be honest,” Boothe added.
