Primetime Fox News Host Turns On Trump – Issues Urgent Warning

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

For former President Donald Trump, Laura Ingraham of Fox News offers a critical piece of advice on how to make it through the upcoming presidential debate: Put an end to your fixation on your 34-count New York felony conviction.

Ingraham seems to side with left-wing pundits, who have been complaining recently that Trump has been attempting to manage expectations for his debate performance ahead of the CNN-moderated debate taking place in Atlanta, GA. Liberal news outlets claim he has a habit of defending his innocence with protracted arguments and attacking prosecutors and judges whenever his legal issues surface. Ingraham publicly cautioned Trump on this with a warning suggesting that will simply cost him the argument.

“If at the end of the debate a lot of time was spent on the 2020 election, January 6th, or Judge Merchan, Alvin Bragg, Fani Willis, with Trump at all sounding defensive or angry, I think Democrats at least will consider that a significant win for them,” said Ingraham. “Remember, they know Biden is weak. And this is not to say the weaponization of government is not a huge issue, it is a big issue. But it’s not what is driving voters to the polls.”

Because of this, Ingraham stated, “I would just quickly dispense with that.”

“I could see [CNN moderator Jake] Tapper maybe asking Trump something like, sir, as a convicted felon, there is a possibility that you may be sentenced to prison and face multiple other cases down the road. How does that make you fit for the presidency, sir? Well, know that this type of question is going to be asked and do one thing, well, don’t get Trump to, you know, try to get Trump to lose his cool. That’s why that question is being asked. Again, Trump doesn’t need to take the bait.”

The Fox host didn’t give full support to leftists’ sentiment, issuing a similar warning to Tapper, before stating what she believes Trump should focus his defense and debate on.

“Now, on their convicted felon point, I’d simply say well, Jake, most people see these cases as driven by politics, and they know that had I decided not to run for office again, none of them would have been brought. But setting that aside, we believe we have a strong appeal in the New York case and we expect to win that appeal. And most Americans, Jake, have no time to follow the minute details of these cases” — after which point, she stated, Trump should then return the attention of the Republican Party to topics like the border, inflation, and other matters they believe are more important.
