Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano published an op-ed Wednesday that attacked Trump for tweets he wrote about four Democrat congresswomen, calling Trump’s words “xenophobic, racist and hateful.”
Napolitano pointed out that the tweets might hurt Trump politically, the Hill reported. He noted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had distanced herself from the far-left congresswomen and had not taken their bait, but Trump did take it.
Napolitano may be sincere in his criticism of Trump, but he’s bound to hurt himself with Republicans watching Fox News. Trump’s approval ratings with Republicans went up after his tweets, showing that most Republicans don’t see them the way Napolitano characterized them.
“We have a president who sounds more like a Mafia don than a statesman and a Congress that wants to pick and choose whose offensive words to condemn,” Napolitano wrote. The host has become more critical of Trump in recent weeks and months.
At some point, Fox News’ audience may reject Napolitano for attacking Trump in this way.
