Krauthammer: Trump’s Putin Comments ‘A Hammer That Any Sentient Being Would Seize’

On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “O’Reilly Factor,” columnist Charles Krauthammer argued that President Donald Trump’s comments about the US and Vladimir Putin are “a hammer that any sentient being would seize immediately.”

After anchor Bill O’Reilly stated that other networks were “looking for a hammer to use” on Trump’s head, Krauthammer responded that the Russia comment was “a hammer that any sentient being would seize immediately.”

O’Reilly countered, “They were looking for something to get him with.”

Krauthammer responded, “I wasn’t looking for something to get him with. … The point is that [Sen.] Mitch McConnell (R-KY), a lot of other people who are not looking to get the president, reacted in the same way. It was a universal reaction. That’s left-wing speech.”
