FNC’s Cavuto: Trump’s Flake, Ball Tweets ‘Don’t Even Border on Being Human’

On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Your World,” host Neil Cavuto criticized President Trump for his tweets about Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and LaVar Ball by wondering why Trump won’t act like he’s president and when he’ll realize those statements “don’t even border on being human?”

Cavuto began by saying, “A president angry at a dad for refusing to say, ‘Thank you’ and so angry at a US senator that he all but says, ‘Screw you.’ Forget about either comment not being presidential. At what point does the president see such remarks don’t even border on being human?”

Cavuto further commented on Trump’s tweet about Flake by stating, “Keep tweeting stuff like that, Mr. President, and those tax cuts just could be toast. You might call him part of the swamp and not care, but throwing mud at a US senator doesn’t make you any less swamp-like. So, maybe you should care.”

He continued, “And wishing maybe you should have left those UCLA players in China because a dad wouldn’t thank you makes me wonder whether this isn’t about players or senators. this is about you, and respect showed to you, and constant praise showed to you, and gratitude, bordering on groveling, shown to you. as president of the United States, doesn’t that already come with the territory? So, why are you calling for more real estate? You’ve got the real estate. You’ve got the White House. You’ve got all the advantage of being the most powerful human being on the planet, that you don’t have to throttle any human being who offends you on the planet.”

Cavuto concluded, “Let your achievements speak for themselves. Let your clear influence to get those players out of China speak for you, not a kid’s dad who just might be embarrassed, but that kid and his buddies, who already told the nation and you they were grateful. Pick your fights. Because neither of these seems worth the fuss. You wanted a thank you. You got it. You wanted a reason to go after a senator you hate. You pounced on it. But last time I checked, you are the president of the United States. Why don’t you act like it?”
