Trump just gave a batshit crazy Fox News interview — here are the 6 most off the wall moments
Trump on Thursday morning called in to “Fox & Friends” for an interview — and things went completely off the rails right from the beginning.
During the interview, Trump spent most of the time angrily ranting about people who have treated him unfairly while also making potentially damning admissions that could harm his own attorney, Michael Cohen.
Below are the six most off the wall moments of Trump’s interview with “Fox & Friends.”
1.) Trump said he decided to call into Fox News as a gift to first lady Melania Trump for her birthday. When asked by Fox hosts if he gave Melania anything else besides doing a Fox interview to celebrate her birthday, Trump replied that he “didn’t get her so much… I got her a beautiful card.”
2.) Trump ranted about Senate Democrats obstructing his nominees after Ronny Jackson, his pick to be secretary of Veterans Affairs, withdrew his name. Trump said that Jackson, who has been accused by multiple people of drinking on the job and fostering a toxic work environment, had an “unblemished record.” He also said that “top of the line people” were “leaving their jobs” to come work for his administration, but fumed that Democrats were throwing up roadblocks to their confirmations.
3.) Trump admits he stayed overnight in Moscow during the 2013 Miss Universe pageant. Former FBI Director James Comey alleged in his contemporaneous memos that Trump told him allegations involving him and Russian prostitutes couldn’t possibly be true because he didn’t stay overnight in Moscow during his trip there in 2013. Trump fumed that “of course I stayed in Russia overnight” — although he again denied that there was any collusion between his campaign and the Russian government.
4.) Trump throws his own lawyer, Michael Cohen, under the bus. In the most stunning part of the interview, Trump said that most of Cohen’s work isn’t as an attorney, but as a private businessman. Trump also said he had “nothing” to do with Cohen’s private business interests and claimed that Cohen only performs a “tiny little fraction” of the legal work done on his behalf. These statements could potentially undermine Cohen’s claims that all documents seized in an FBI raid on his office should not be admissible evidence because they fall under attorney-client privilege.
5.) Even Fox News host Brian Kilmeade tells Trump to not watch so much cable news. During a long rant about the “unfair” treatment he receives in the mainstream press, Kilmeade interjected and said, “I’m not your doctor, Mr. President, but I would recommend you watch less of them.” “I don’t watch them at all!” Trump replied, before going into detail about a CNN show that he watched on Wednesday night.
6.) Trump went on a nonsensical rant about the Department of Justice being against him. Trump fumed that the DOJ was not investigating the alleged crimes of his political enemies, which prompted host Steve Doocy to tell him that “It’s your Justice Department!” Trump said that he does not want to get involved with the DOJ because of the Mueller “witch hunt” that’s being conducted against him. He then complained about the Mueller probe.
“I have a phony cloud over my head that doesn’t exist!” the president complained.
KANYE WEST is a fucking fool, always has been
Donald Trump? We know Yeezus walks with him, after the rapper professed his “love” for the president on Twitter, amid a flood of posts which angered fans.
“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him,” Kanye tweeted. “We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”

Thank you Kanye, very cool! https://twitter.com/kanyewest/status/989179757651574784 …
Speaking of independent thoughts, Stephen Colbert had some of his own.
“I don’t know if you’ve checked Twitter today,” The Late Show host told viewers Wednesday. “But right now, my Twitter feed is just tweets from Donald Trump and Kanye West.”
“(West) tweeted, ‘my MAGA hat is signed,’ followed by 30 fire emojis,” Colbert said. “Now, that is fitting, because that is how many times I would set that hat on fire.”
The comedian also joked Ye’s tweets were an attempt at making a play to be Trump’s new communications director. “He could just change his name to Kellyanne Kanye,” he cracked.
But on a semi-serious note, Colbert wanted to offer some advice to the rapper “brother to brother,” referencing Kanye’s earlier tweet. “Put the phone down,” Colbert advised.
