Fox News reporter Eric Shawn blasted President Trump after his interview with Maria Bartiromo Sunday Morning on the Fox Business channel.
After playing a clip, Shawn said “that is, of course, President Trump claiming massive voter fraud this morning. His words, ‘they stuffed the ballot box. It was, quote a ‘fake election.’ All this despite the fact that his campaign has failed to prove any of this in court. In fact, your government, election officials, experts, and others, many of the Republican, including Trump-appointed officials say that the president’s claims are false and unsubstantiated.”
“The president pronouncements have caused the president’s supporters to doubt the veracity of the election,” he continued “critics say his claims are unsupported, reckless and incendiary.”
Later, Shawn concluded “It seems that we have a president who, he can’t wrap his brain or mind around the fact, he can’t process that someone who he thinks is so inferior to him won the election.”
CNN’s Brian Stelter shared the clip and wrote “Want to see a Fox News anchor matter-of-factly shut down Trump’s “this election was a fraud” lie? Watch Eric Shawn here.
