You gotta wonder just how bad things are for Trump, when the Fox News All-Star Panel is overwhelmingly against you.

Mo Elleithee is the first on this clip to call out Trump's hypocrisy: "The president himself spent years attacked his predecessor, for not calling out the enemy by name. For not going after, in his words, "radical Islam." "If you cannot call the enemy by their name how can you defeat it?" That was a refrain we heard time and time again from Donald Trump before assuming office. It took him two days to call the enemy out by name."

Charles Krauthammer said this isn't a media story, it's a presidential story. “What is shocking is that the President of the United States did not have the instinctive, reflexive automatic response we would expect of any American leader, and what we saw across the spectrum in American leadership, and among the American populace in being utterly revolted by these right-wing, white supremacist, Neo-Nazi groups. And that the President did not do what was just absolutely natural, that’s what makes it a story.”

Krauthammer also called out Trump for his teleprompter reading of the "corrected" statement, given how much he criticized his opponents in the GOP primaries for their teleprompter use.

I guess Trump will have to be satisfied with the adoration of Fox and Friends and Sean Hannity. But if the suits upstairs decide Hannity's $2.4 million dollars a month contract would be better spent attacking Trump, I'm sure Hannity will oblige.
