Watch These Fox News Hosts Twist Themselves into Knots to Avoid Condemning Trump's Lies: 'What Is the Point?'
Fox News was having a lot of trouble defending President Donald Trump on Tuesday's episode of 'Outnumbered' as the fallout from Michael Cohen's secretly-recorded audio that proves the president to be lying continues to dominate the news cycle.
Instead of talking about the actual content of the tape, the hosts tried launching into a convoluted discussion about why it's normal to lie when cheating on a spouse.
"The central question right now is, what we hear on this particular recording in any way demonstrate violation of the law or campaign finance rules," Fox News' Kevin Cork said before admitting this argument wasn't foolproof. "In the short answer is not necessarily."
Former GOP congressman Jason Chaffetz tried attacking Cohen personally.
"Cohen, in my own personal opinion, I think you will be disbarred," Chaffetz said before claiming Cohen used a "fake business card" and recited rumors about the lawyer.
Katie Pavlich tried to claim the tape release makes the president look good, because his legal team allowed it.
"They are willing to be open and transparent in having this tape get out there," she said.
Melissa Francis suggested the leaked audio isn't a problem because she already knew Trump was a liar.
"I kinda assumed that from the beginning. I don't know what this does for us," she said.
Francis continued by saying, "People who have affairs lie about it."
Pavlich jumped back in to say this leak is an example of "the left throwing spaghetti at the wall to see if it sticks."
