It sounds like Hugh Hewitt is trying his darndest to slowly, gently, slam into Trump’s tiny little lizard brain that irrational exaggerations is not the way to dig out of a 12% election poll deficit.
And failing. Badly.
Here’s what happened this morning when he interviewed el Trumpo:
You can hear Hugh’s desperation as he pleads and begs Trump to walk back his idiotic assertion that Obama founded ISIS, and he just won’t let him do it. It is certainly true that Obama indirectly helped create ISIS through his weakness and indecision about Iraq – which is what Hugh is trying to make Trump say. But, as we all know by now, Trump is absolutely incapable of correcting himself. Even when it’s clearly obvious that he’s exaggerating, and it won’t help him to stay the course. Brilliant.
This is so stupid he’s making MSNBC hosts look credible:
INTERVIEWER: You mean, metaphoric–
TRUMP: No literally
INTERVIEWER: But, he didn't *actually*–
TRUMP: No, actually. Obama is Baghdadi

OH, and don’t miss out on the delicious irony of Hugh getting his hand slapped away while trying to feed the idiot his lines, after Trump has already insulted and humiliated the establishment radio host in the primary debates! This is what happens when you sell your soul to the devil – he takes it, and then stomps on it in front of you to insult you. And I have to admit, I’m enjoying the schadenfreude.
NOW, to be fair to Trump, he explains his position more than where Hugh cuts it off in the video. Here’s the entire text of the exchange on ISIS, which won’t be posted by the mainstream media covering it:
HH: I’ve got two more questions. Last night, you said the President was the founder of ISIS. I know what you meant. You meant that he created the vacuum, he lost the peace.
DT: No, I meant he’s the founder of ISIS. I do. He was the most valuable player. I give him the most valuable player award. I give her, too, by the way, Hillary Clinton.
HH: But he’s not sympathetic to them. He hates them. He’s trying to kill them.
DT: I don’t care. He was the founder. His, the way he got out of Iraq was that that was the founding of ISIS, okay?
HH: Well, that, you know, I have a saying, Donald Trump, the pneumonic device I use is Every Liberal Really Seems So, So Sad. E is for Egypt, L is for Libya, S is for Syria, R is for Russia reset. They screwed everything up. You don’t get any argument from me. But by using the term founder, they’re hitting with you on this again. Mistake?
DT: No, it’s no mistake. Everyone’s liking it. I think they’re liking it. I give him the most valuable player award. And I give it to him, and I give it to, I gave the co-founder to Hillary. I don’t know if you heard that.
HH: I did. I did. I played it.
DT: I gave her the co-founder.
HH: I know what you’re arguing…
DT: You’re not, and let me ask you, do you not like that?
HH: I don’t. I think I would say they created, they lost the peace. They created the Libyan vacuum, they created the vacuum into which ISIS came, but they didn’t create ISIS. That’s what I would say.
DT: Well, I disagree.
HH: All right, that’s okay.
DT: I mean, with his bad policies, that’s why ISIS came about.
DT: If he would have done things properly, you wouldn’t have had ISIS.
HH: That’s true.
DT: Therefore, he was the founder of ISIS.
HH: And that’s, I’d just use different language to communicate it, but let me close with this, because I know I’m keeping you long, and Hope’s going to kill me.
DT: But they wouldn’t talk about your language, and they do talk about my language, right?
What do y’all think?
