Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly took turns Thursday defending President Donald Trump after he fired FBI Director James Comey.
Trump’s actions on Friday morning came just hours after a report surfaced that the president was considering firing Comey over his handling of the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
Trump tweeted early Friday morning that he was looking into the possibility of firing Comey.
The president’s comments came during a segment on Fox News Thursday morning, when Wallace called Trump a “big fish in a small pond.”
“I would just say that you can’t fire a big fish in the big pond.
And you can certainly take a small fish out of the pond,” Wallace said.
Trump continued: “I think he was a big-time fish, and I think he’s done a lot of damage, but the fish in that pond are the Democrats.”
Trump said the “big-fish” in the pond are Democrats like Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton, she was a huge influence in this whole process.
The Democrats are the big fish and the Republicans are the little fish.
The big fish are in the White House and the little ones are out in the wilderness,” Wallace added.”
So, it’s just a matter of time before he does something that could jeopardize the American people, and he’s not going to do it.
I mean, it doesn’t make sense to me.”
Wallace continued: “‘Cause, if he’s in that position, it’ll be a big deal.”‘
I’ve had my eye on him for a long time’: ‘I’m just one guy, this is just a hobby’The Fox News panelists all agreed that Trump’s actions were a distraction from the president’s agenda.
“He has the biggest ego in the history of mankind,” Wallace explained.
“We have a president that has made himself a king, that has been very arrogant, that is the biggest, most arrogant, big-spending president in the modern era,” Hannity added.
Wallace noted that it was a good thing Comey was fired because Trump had “lost the confidence” of the intelligence community.
“I think you’re gonna see this coming out of Trump’s mouth,” Wallace told Kelly.
“And I’m just not sure why he’s so upset about the FBI and what he said about it.
It’s like the intelligence agencies of the United States of America,” Wallace replied. “
The intelligence community is not an independent agency,” Kelly said.
“It’s like the intelligence agencies of the United States of America,” Wallace replied.
He’s a big, fat fish in an ocean of little fish,” Wallace continued. “
I’m not sure that he is the leader of the country.”
“He’s a big, fat fish in an ocean of little fish,” Wallace continued.
“You know, there are big fish out there and there are little fish in there.
And this is one of those big fish.”
Wallack and Kelly also praised the president for “keeping it real.”
“What’s going to be good for this president?
Keep it real,” Kelly remarked.
“Keep it real.
Keep it simple, keep it real, keep the focus on what’s important, keep him focused on the agenda.””
Keep it simple.
He needs the focus.
He is not a simple guy,” Wallace responded.
