Michael Schmidt: No One Can Deny Trump’s Witch Hunt Rhetoric Has Not Been Effective for Their Base

‘This is what Fox News pushes and for their base it has been effective’


SCHMIDT: "This is not an exercise of intellectual honesty that’s going on here. It’s not. This is a political fight and they’re trying to muddy the waters. And since Giuliani came on, they have hit the gas a lot harder on that issue. And you have to come back to where this all starts. It starts with the F.B.I., questions about the text messages that comes out at the end of last year. It’s these issues of bias that came out that the Republicans have seized on. This is what they push. This is what Fox News pushes, this is what the conservative media pushed, and for their base it has been effective. I don’t know how you could deny that."
