Fox & Friends Defends Trump Payments to Porn Stars: ‘Obama Did The Exact Same Thing’

“Fox & Friends” claimed that President Donald Trump does not deserve jail time for illegally paying off his two former mistresses — porn stars Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal — to help his 2016 campaign -because former President Barack Obama “did the exact same thing.”

Conservative commentator Dan Bongino minimized Trump’s illegal actions: “Explain to me how this isn’t police state tactics? For what? For civil violations?”

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade whined that federal prosecutors are “putting all these adjectives” in court filings to make a case against Trump:

Let’s drill down on it. There were two women coming forward that were going to say negative things about the president and relations. If you are running for office, whether it’s a bad business deal where you have a bitter partner, you want to make sure things are going the best you can to keep your eye on the ball.

>Kilmeade desperately tried to create a false equivalence between Trump paying off porn stars and former President Obama: >

That’s an election law violation. According to everybody’s stats, Barack Obama’s campaign spent nearly $2 million in violations of election law. They got a fine of $300,000. But you want to throw this president in jail about payments to women that they may or may not have known about!

Bongino replied:

What you just said is factually correct. The Barack Obama team was guilty of the exact same thing and was given a civil fine… But because its Barack Obama — you know, the annointed one — nothing happened.
