‘Holy Moly’: Fox’s Neil Cavuto Says Putin ‘Appeared to Run Circles Around the President’


Even Fox hosts were completely stunned by President Donald Trump‘s performance at his joint presser with Vladimir Putin today.

Trump was directly asked whether he believes Putin or his own intel community on Russian meddling, and not only did he question whether Russia actually did it, but he seemed more outraged about the DNC server.

“This has got to be the most incredible thing I’ve ever witnessed,” Neil Cavuto said. He likened it to someone offering to help look into the cause of a fire that they started.

Stuart Varney said, “It was not a very forceful presentation from President Trump with Putin standing right next to him. Not forceful at all.”

“I’ll give the benefit of the doubt to maybe jet lag and time differences, but holy moly,” Cavuto said.

And later on in his program, Cavuto was a bit more direct:

“I don’t think you get a second chance to make a good first impression at a stage and venue like this… I just found that Vladimir Putin appeared to run circles around the President and get him to buy––that is the guy standing next to him hook line and sinker––every single sneaky lie and misstatement he has made on this matter.”
