Fox News hosts twist themselves into knots about Trump's massive losses: 'A bold businessman'
Fox News is on overdrive trying to whitewash President Donald Trump's decade of massive losses, more than a billion dollars, as a bombshell New York Times investigation revealed Tuesday night.
The Times reported his financial losses were so large, "year after year, Mr. Trump appears to have lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer."
Not according to the folks at "Fox & Friends," who apparently don't think one billion dollars is a lot of money.
Brian Kilmeade told Fox News viewers that the Times article "shows that he lost a lot of money over the course of 10 years – if you consider a billion dollars a lot of money."

Kilmeade, the biggest Trump fan on Fox News' AM show, reframed the Times exposé, claiming it proves the President is "a bold businessman."
"I can't imagine having that much money, spending that much money, and being in debt. For him, it makes sense," Kilmeade insisted, suggesting Trump wanted to lose all that money because he had "confidence."
After Kilmeade praises Trump for taking chances, Ainsley Earhardt chimes in, saying, "I think that's how the voter feels."

"What do people not understand about he's a little bit different than most people?" Kilmeade added.
