Trump called to beg Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs for help after his 'most punishing defeat'

Trump called to beg Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs for help after his ‘most punishing defeat’ as president: report

BOB BRIGHAM 13 FEB 2019 AT 21:10 ET

President Donald Trump attempted to shore up his Fox News supporters after he failed in negotiations with Capitol Hill despite his government shutdown, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

Trump set the record for the longest government shutdown in an unsuccessful attempt to get leverage over Democrats in an attempt to get U.S. taxpayers to pick up the tab for the border wall he had promised Mexico would fund.

The White House has sought to “minimize the damage by tamping down criticism on the right.”

“One call was made to Lou Dobbs, a favorite of Mr. Trump’s whose Fox News show he often tries to catch live. Another was placed to Sean Hannity, the Fox host who regularly talks with the president,” The Times reported.

The newspaper noted, “it was arguably the most punishing defeat Mr. Trump has experienced as president, and it left the White House scrounging for other ways to pay for a wall on the southwestern border and rethinking its approach to a Congress now partly controlled by Democrats.”

Trump’s failure also undermined his carefully-crafted public image.

1. I bet he called Rush too. Heard him for a couple minutes yesterday. He

Had this calm, cool, collected tone. No rant. Just, how he doesn’t understand why people are upset at all. He predicted that he would start using the money he did get, and then take the rest from somewhere else. The whole thing will be in court until right before election and he will win.

3. "Scrounging"

Perfect word usage for the Trump Crime Administration.
