Fox's pro-Trump hosts are working overtime to discredit Robert Mueller

What's President Trump hearing when he watches Fox News? He's hearing that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is "illegitimate and corrupt." That it's led by a "band of merry Trump-haters" who are trying to reverse the results of the election. And that it must be stopped. He's also hearing that the FBI is becoming "America's secret police," akin to the KGB in Russia, full of "sickness" and "corruption." These are all actual quotes from some of the president's favorite pro-Trump talk shows. The overarching message from "Fox & Friends" and "Hannity" is unmistakable: Mr. President, you're the victim of a "deep state" plot to take you down. Don't let it happen. The repetition is really something to behold -- not just by hosts but by guests who back up the anti-Mueller arguments. The Wall Street Journal and The New York Post -- outlets that are, like Fox, owned by Rupert Murdoch -- have also repeatedly published opinion pieces with sharp criticism of Mueller.Imagine how the president might react to hearing this rhetoric over and over again: "Mueller's stooges literally are doing everything within their power, and then some, to try and remove President Trump from office."
