Washington DC (670 KBOI News) – The media and pundits are breathlessly reporting that in the Mueller report, President Trump said he was “f-ed”, and his presidency was over, when he heard a special prosecutor had been appointed.
But 670 KBOI guest host Phil Hardy, a federal lobbyist with Strategies 360 in Washington, says what’s missing is the context in which he said that.
“The mainstream media, by and large, are not reporting three or four sentences later, that Trump is concerned that he won’t be able to get his agenda moving, because he’ll be bogged down with a special counsel, that lasts for years,” said Hardy. “And of course, he was partially correct. It has hobbled his presidency.”
Hardy says the media and politicians like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer risk alienating the American people if they continue to harp on the matter.
