POLITICS Bill O’Reilly Says President Trump’s Ukraine Call Was Actually a Brilliant ‘Bait and Switch’ Operation to Snare Obama O’Reilly says that everyone is so focused on “Biden, Biden, Biden.” But that was not the point of Trump’s call with the Ukraine President.
Former Fox News powerhouse Bill O’Reilly has jumped into the impeachment drama.
But what’s nice about O’Reilly’s point of view, is that it’s different than what we’ve heard from others.
O’Reilly says that everyone is so focused on “Biden, Biden, Biden.” But that was not the point of Trump’s call with the Ukraine President.
According to O’Reilly, the only reason President Trump started those wheels in motion was to nab Obama, and he used Biden as his ticket inside.
O’Reilly says Trump knows exactly who tried to take him down and who spied on him…It was Obama giving the orders, and that’s the big fish Trump is going after.
Pretty good observation and a very good “bait and switch” by the president.
Absent any new evidence about President Trump’s conduct, the impeachment play is likely to hurt the Democratic Party, which is already reeling from the lack of a potent presidential candidate.
The Ukraine phone call is being framed by the democrats and their media allies as a simple transaction: the President demanding dirt on political opponent, Joe Biden, in return for money from the American taxpayer.
But that simple allegation is wrong. Not because Mr. Trump didn’t want to hurt Biden, he did. But the President’s motivation is much more complex than a one-off political tactic.
If you read ‘The United States of Trump,’ Donald Trump’s mindset will unfold before your eyes. He seeks vengeance for the wrong he believes was done to him by people in the Obama administration, including Joe Biden and Barack Obama, himself.
Donald Trump thinks President Obama was behind the entire Russia-collusion fiasco and he is crazed about it. He believes Mr. Obama, through confidants, tried to destroy him, mainly because of Trump pushing the birther stuff. Here’s the truth: there is very bad blood between both men.
That bitterness was the President’s primary motivation for pressuring the Ukrainian leader. Mr. Trump wants to secure evidence of corruption by the Obama administration. Biden was a way in. [Bill OReilly]
O’Reilly goes on to say that ironically, President Trump didn’t even need to make that call to the Ukraine President because he believes that ultimately Barr will do exactly what Trump was asking the Ukraine President to do and reveal the coup.
However, O’Reilly says that President Trump doesn’t have the “patience” to sit back and wait, so that’s why he likely took things into his own hands and tried to get the ball rolling.
Another good point O’Reilly made, was that President Trump should speak directly to the American people about this impeachment sham with an address from the Oval Office.
I agree. I think that’s a great idea.
Donald Trump may get his wish because the Justice Department is currently investigating possible corruption within the Obama administration during and after the 2016 campaign. US Attorney John Durham is the point man and a criminal Grand Jury may be already seated.
So, if President Trump had any patience, which he does not, the Ukraine call was totally unnecessary. Attorney General Barr’s Justice Departure will likely expose what really happened in the 2016 without Mr. Trump’s help.
Astute political observers know there is likely trouble ahead for the anti-Trumpers involved in trying to take him out three years ago. Thus, now, they must damage the President as much as they can before stuff starts hitting the Justice Department fan.
Enter the American people who will be the ultimate deciders here. Internal polling by the Trump side indicates a growing feeling of citizen anger by non-ideological voters who are tired of nonstop allegations against the President. It is unlikely that public opinion will support the removal of a President when there are two sides to the Ukraine story.
The failure to secure even one House republican vote for continuing the impeachment process underlines the situation. At this point, it is a partisan play.
President Trump would be wise to explain himself directly to the American people via a televised address. He will never get a fair hearing from the press so forget using that vehicle.
