Understatement of the Day

"Trump’s relationship with Fox News may actually be far friendlier than is his relationship with America’s intelligence community."
--Philip Bump, "You'll Never Guess Who Tweeted Something False He Saw on TV"
Philip Bump was referring to something Trump saw and thought he understood on "Fox and Friends" this morning. He tweeted out that President Obama was responsible for releasing 122 Guantanamo "vicious killers" who had returned to the fight. He got it from "Fox and Friends," who didn't clarify that 113 of those Gitmo former detainees back in the terror business were released by George W. Bush, not Barack Obama. "Fox and Friends" didn't clarify because they obviously wanted viewers to believe that Obama had released them ... which Trump dutifully believed.

The idiot.
