Fox News host Bret Baier asked on his show why Republicans won’t come on and “defend Donald Trump.”  Easy.  It’s clear outlets like the Washington Post are flooding the zone with fake news.  This stories have ranged from the falsehood that James Comey requested money to investigate Trump before Trump fired him to Rod Rosenstein’s threatened resignation to Sean Spicer hiding in the bushes.  This is what Baier and his panelist Charles Krauthammer demand the GOP comes on to address.

Again, given the pattern of lies that underlie these stories, why should they come on and talk.

Even the supposed James Comey memo that documents in improper request from Trump to back off the Mike Flynn investigation is far from proven to exist.  The memo was allegedly read over the phone to to New York Times reporter.  Trump is already denying what has not been proven to exist, and even if it did it would spawn more questions about why Comey sat on it for months and said nothing.  GOP leaders are already throwing shade on veracity of the memo and, finally, are refusing to come on cable shows and defend what has been proven to be speculation at best and wild ass mainstream media lies at the worst.

“What I think is really stunning is that nobody, not even from the White House, has come out under their own name in defense of the president here,” Krauthammer said.

Defend what? Why should Republicans come on and give straight answers to direct questions about fake news?
