Fox Host Ripped For Claiming The FBI And Mueller Are Part Of A ‘Coup’ To Overthrow Trump (VIDEO)


When interviewing White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, Fox News ran a banner asking: “A coup in America?” Then, Fox host Jesse Watters suggested that a “coup” might be underway in the U.S. by saying that the FBI is trying to undermine Trump.

Watters used his show Saturday night to attack special counsel Robert Mueller, whom he claims has agents on the investigative team who are biased against Trump. Except, when Mueller found out about FBI agent Peter Strzok’s anti-Trump text messages, he fired him from the team. So, he did the right thing.

“We may now have proof the investigation was weaponized to destroy [Trump’s] presidency for partisan political purposes and to disenfranchise millions of American voters,” Watters said.

“Now if that is true, we have a coup on our hands in America,” he added.


A backlash ensued.

Kevin Baron, the executive editor for military news outlet Defense One, chimed in.

Benjamin Wittes, a friend of former FBI Director James Comey, had a little something to say, too.

”Coup is defined as “a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government.” That word doesn’t mean what Fox News thinks it means. Before the election, Trump supporters spoke of taking up arms if Hillary Clinton won. That would be more of a coup. Donald Trump is not above the law.
