What I don’t get is I’m assuming Fox is dutifully reporting both that Mueller completely exonerated Trump, and that he is part of the deep state conspiracy witch hunt that’s still trying to carry out a coup.
That seems like a tough needle to thread rhetorically, but I guess that’s why I’m not Rupert Murdoch or Joseph Goebbels.
Cathy Garnaat, a Republican who supported Amash and the president said she was upset about Amash’s position but wanted to hear his reasoning. She said that she will definitely support Trump in 2020 but that Tuesday night was the first time she had heard that the Mueller report didn’t completely exonerate the president.
“I was surprised to hear there was anything negative in the Mueller report at all about President Trump. I hadn’t heard that before,” she said. “I’ve mainly listened to conservative news and I hadn’t heard anything negative about that report and President Trump has been exonerated.”
