Federalist staff writer Bre Payton joined “Fox and Friends” Monday morning to talk about The New York Times columnist Paul Krugman’s tweet intimating that President-elect Donald Trump has an “incentive” to allow another terror attack occur on U.S. soil because it could boost his favorability.
“I’m not surprised that Paul Krugman said this,” she said. “I think his brain broke a long time ago. This is the same guy who said that the FBI had sympathies with the alt-right and that the GOP was enabling the Kremlin.”
“This is a desperate plea for attention from a guy whose become completely unhinged over the past couple of months and has been writing for a publication that has produced an insane number of fake news as they predicted every single turn of the election completely wrong.”
“Every single day there’s a new excuse, a new reason why Hillary Clinton lost the election coming from the left and coming from the media,” she said. “It’s never why she was a flawed candidate, it’s never how she set up a private e-mail server and used it to curry favors with deep-pocketed donors. . . Last week it was the Russians, the other day Obama was blaming the media, and now Paul Krugman is saying that Trump needs another 9/11 to be a legitimate president.”
