Are We Losing Our National Identity and Respect Around the World Thanks To Benedict Donald?

Now that President Donald Trump doesn’t have Shepard Smith to kick around at Fox News any longer, he’s attacking “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.

Wallace is one of the few remaining news hosts at Fox who routinely presents a balanced perspective, and who often challenges Trump’s policies and statements. Smith abruptly resigned from Fox on Friday after being repeatedly criticized by Trump.

Following Wallace’s program Sunday, Trump fired off a tweet demanding that “somebody please explain to Chris Wallace” that Trump’s July phone call with Ukraine’s president “was a congenial & good one.” In the call, now the focus of an impeachment inquiry, Trump pressed the Ukrainian leader to investigate his political rival Joe Biden and his son — while withholding military aid from the nation.

Trump also slammed Chris Wallace as someone who “will never be his father,” the late “60 Minutes” stalwart Mike Wallace, whom Trump claimed was “my friend.”

Somebody please explain to Chris Wallace of Fox, who will never be his father (and my friend), Mike Wallace, that the Phone Conversation I had with the President of Ukraine was a congenial & good one. It was only Schiff’s made up version of that conversation that was bad!

It is abundantly clear what Benedict Donald (a most appropriate name proffered up by an anonymous  commenter somewhere) is up to. It has been obvious to all but the uninquisitive, ill informed, and unthinking Trump cultists since day one.
Trump, a prolific liar, has been creating his fallacious narratives and false universe since the very beginning of  his campaign to be president. As all demagogues are inclined to do Trump has attacked truth, the legitimate media/journalism, our institutions, our allies, the media, and anyone and everyone who dares points out his errors and lies.
Trump, in the absence of Mike Wallace being able to defend himself, is claiming Mike Wallace was his freind. I suspect he is lying as usual. We’ll have to wait for Chris Wallace to confirm of deny Trump’s story. However, I must say, for me anyway, it seems ludicrous that an honest highly respected newsman and anchor like Mike Wallace would be friends with the likes of Benedict Donald.
