There comes a point where you wonder if the political experts we see on the news every day actually believe what they are saying, or if they are role-playing for the camera and a paycheck. Case in point is the ridiculous back and forth on Fox News’ America’s News Headquarters on Sunday.
Right-wing attorney and political analyst Gayle Trotter appeared on the show defending President Trump’s attempts to pressure Georgia’s foreign minister to “find” enough votes to win him a victory in the state.
Trump’s behavior across borders was treasonous and a violation of the basic principles of American democracy. However, Trotter shot her best and defended him with a straight face.
Trotter’s attempts to turn Trump’s antics into acceptable President behavior were so wrong that the other two experts, A.. . B.. . Stoddard of the conservative news site RealClearPolitics and Democratic strategist Jessica Tarlov laughed right in her face.
Laughing in someone’s face on TV is rude, but Trotter is helping the president commit illegal acts to overthrow a presidential election. Is she not ashamed

The conversation began with Stoddard, who said the taped conversation in which Trump pressured Georgia’s foreign minister would be « incredibly politically harmful to the president » after a « free and fair » election.
Tarlov added to Stoddard’s comments that Trump’s efforts to overturn the elections were « terrible for America » and that Republicans « should atone and make amends for what they did. «
But Trotter didn’t have it. She took the angle that Trump’s inflammatory efforts were just another example of how he fights for his constituents. She left out the part where he threatened an election officer with fraud.
« A. . B.. . and Jessica just doesn’t get it, « said Trotter. « The voters who wanted President Trump to have a second term voted for him because he is a fighter. He’s a man who fights. «
Then Trotter went straight to her topics of conversation about how Joe Biden is pushing a « radical left agenda ». « The idea that Joe Biden, a lifelong Democrat in the middle of the street, was a radical had once again failed Storrard, this time backed by Tarlov.
Trotter’s cynical defense of the president as he tries to undermine the very foundations of American democracy is a gross show of loyalty. But Fox News has to be criticized for getting panelists like Trotter on the air in the first place.
Trotter recently tweeted an article about whether people should be taking the COVID-19 vaccine at a time when thousands of Americans are dying from the disease every day. She also once signaled support for the Q Anon conspiracy by using the hashtag # WWG1WGA in a tweet supporting the disgraced National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. She later deleted the tweet.
The hashtag stands for « Where We Go One We All Go, » a slogan for the refuted and discredited far-right conspiracy theory that claims that a cabal of pedophiles who worship Satan runs a global ring for the sex trafficking of children and conspiracy against US President Donald Trump.
Although Trotter was the target of Stoddard and Tarlov’s laughter, the real gist of the joke should be the news organization, which feels the need to give it a platform.
