Brian Stelter And Don Lemon
Stelter accused Eric Boiling of using talking points in his boisterous support of President Trump, reminding him that he is not at FOX. Below is how the conversation went.
BOILING: We are so hung up on the left-leaning media, let’s call it left-leaning media with Donald Trump, the guy, the person, what he says, what he tweets and not really giving much deference to the fact that yes the economy is ripping. 4.2% GDP growth, well over the 3.7% unemployment. We are getting the respect on the global stage again for the first time in not 8 years but probably 32 years.
BRIAN: We all know that’s a bunch of bull. We know those are talking points. People see through them, Eric, you don’t have to do that stuff.
BOLLING: Oh stop it, Brian. It’s not talking points, it’s reality.
It’s 4 — when is the last time you saw 4.2% GDP and 3.7% unemployment? Not in your lifetime. Not in your lifetime.
Brian: Respect on a global stage.
You don’t have to read those lines anymore. You’re not at a FOX anymore, Eric.
BRIAN: You’re not at FOX anymore. You don’t have to read that stuff anymore.
BOLLING: It has nothing to do with FOX. I’m not at FOX anymore. I’m a supporter of a president that finally put America first for the first time in 32 years. Not 8 under President Obama, under Bush, under Clinton. We are stepping forward, putting America first, and guess what’s happening? Our economy is roaring.
Don, more African-Americans working now than ever. Brian, more women working now than ever. And, Doug, more minorities working now than ever.
