Fox News host Neil Cavuto on Saturday cut the mic of the incredibly "offensive" and "obnoxious" liberal shill Julian Epstein for refusing to have a serious discussion about the current White House scandals and instead insisting on echoing Democrat talking points (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary): Neil Cavuto Cuts Mic on 'Obnoxious' Liberal Guest Echoing White House Talking Points
Cavuto asked his guest, What part of Custer dont you understand here, where youre surrounded, and you see one incident after another that comes up, and it all it all comes back to the same basic issue: privacys invaded or potentially invaded, institutions of all sorts doing pretty much the same thing. There is a pattern.
If you want to conflate and combine all these issues and then make these general statements, you can do that, Epstein said. I just dont think its a thoughtful way of approaching it.
Cavuto interrupted his guest and shouted, Why dont you think about what I said, Julian? Im asking you to think and connect all the no, no, Julian, dont play the politics game.
I dont connect the dots, argued Epstein.
This got Cavuto even angrier. Julian, Im telling you, drop the liberal thing and focus on the reality thing. You have one entity after another going after the American people. You have one system of government, one agency, one department after another essentially doing the same thing. You can call that conflating. I am telling you there is a pattern, and youre just shrugging your shoulders. But I guarantee you, Julian, if it were George Bush doing it, you would rightly be all over it.
Thats wrong, Epstein dishonestly said. Thats actually incorrect because look, you cant conflate all of these issues. You have to speak about them separately because theyre very different. In the case of the IRS, I agree the targeting was wrong, but there was never any connection to the White House. Nobodys proven that.
At that moment, one of Cavutos other guests, Charlie Gasparino, said off-camera, This guy would make a lousy reporter.
As Epstein continued with the White House talking points, Cavuto interrupted again saying, Im not going to get anywhere arguing this point. Ben Stein, Julian, no, you are saying nothing. Im sorry, Julian, youre saying nothing and its offensive. Because Ben Stein, Julian, why dont you talk facts? Its annoying how obnoxious you can be on the reality.
Epstein tried again to give the Democratic Party line, and Cavuto snapped, Im not going to play this game with you, Julian. You play the same damn game dismissing one institution.
When Epstein continued to speak, Cavuto said, Cut his mic. Guys, cut his mic, hes going nowhere fast. Cut his mic.
Cavuto then moved onto to Stein before once again saying, Cut his damn mic!
Which raises a question: Julian Epstein is a shill willing to say anything without any regard for its veracity to advance Democrats. As such, why would Cavuto have him on?
Hes a broken record of Democrat talking points nothing more, nothing less. As a result, he adds absolutely nothing to the discussion - never has, never will.
His place is on MSNBC where he can repeat the White House line with all the other parrots.
Therefore, unless the folks on Fox like these kinds of fights on Saturday mornings, maybe they should think better of scheduling people such as Julian Epstein.
Certainly, there have to be many far more intellectually honest people on the left interested in having a meaningful discussion about the important issues facing the nation than this shameless shill.
Saw it. Loved it.
Epstein is a liberal jerk and lowest of the low, muting is an automatic response for him.
Julian Epstein is an annoying ass.
They probably want to try to stay fair and balanced like all the other news stations. Right.
Why would he have him on? Not sure, but get back to me if he does it again.
Epstein wouldn’t admit that black isn’t white.....typical Democrat liberal. And they want us to believe and trust them?
I saw it too. I love Cavuto, and he usually remains calm and lets the libs make fools out of themselves, but today he let that fool have it!
He is always on one of the Saturday Morning business programs on FOX News
Epstein is a talking sphincter.
When he’s on...my gaydar starts flashing. He looks as though he’s had some “house keeping”.
Everytime this A-hole's mug hits the screen, I hit The Weather Channel before his lips start moving...
This Country cannot exist with division like this, no how no way.
It will take years to correct this indoctrination that has been foisted on us the last 40 years or so....if we could survive it that long.
“We are the ones we have been waiting for”
I knew what he meant when he said it, and I hope the American people are coming to understand what he meant now too....and I hope enough of them care enough to do some thing about it....but I suspect the usual 30% or so will have to pull the wagon, as usual throughout history.
Epstein, Juan Williams, Bob “no neck” Beckel, and Alan Colmes are all first class @zzholes. I don’t care for either of them. On the other hand, allowing them to bloviate shows us the liberal mindset. Facts mean nothing to them.
Epstein was on with Jay Sekuloe (SP) and Jay handed him his @zz. :-)
It was great! Got me all fired up, and I sent an email to Cavuto. He’s right: there’s a pattern here.
What you are going to do if he does?
That is a good start. How about having some real conservatives debate the issue.
Hard to believe that brilliant, conservative, Dr. Monica Crowley is his sister-in-law. Holiday meals must be fun!
Saw it and cut it off.
