As he does nearly every day, President Donald Trump spent his “executive time” on Wednesday watching his favorite TV show, “Fox & Friends.” And as he does many mornings he tweeted out “quotes” (far from exact) from “Fox & Friends” that he likes.


Wednesday morning, less than two hours before the open impeachment hearings will begin, also on television, the president tweeted out comments from a Fox News contributor who right now is being mocked on social media for those comments, which what some say are “stupid” remarks.

Charles Hurt bragged on “Fox & Friends” that he doesn’t know what language “quid pro quo” is. He called the Latin term, and the word “bribery,” “squirrelly words.” He also wrongly suggested that attempted crimes are not crimes (they are) and that Democrats are unable to prove Trump “did anything particularly wrong,” which is also false.

As NCRM reported, many on social media mocked or derided Hurt, who is also an opinion editor for the right wing Washington Times, and a contributor to the far right wing website Breitbart.

Here’s Trump quoting Hurt:

Hurt’s defense of Trump doesn’t hold water, but Trump apparently felt it does.

They are both wrong.

Open witness testimony in the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump starts in less than one hour.
