Fox News' Neil Cavuto shreds Donald Trump: 'The problem is you'

Fox News host Neil Cavuto issued one of his searing monologues on Thursday, criticizing President Donald Trump for focusing on the stock market’s positive performance while creating “a moral bust.” 

″You are so darned focused on promoting a financial boom that you fail to see that you are the one creating this moral bust,” Cavuto said. “And we could all be the poorer for it.” 

Cavuto was responding to Trump’s claim in a Fox News interview this week that the stock market would crash if he were impeached. 

“You don’t prevent a constitutional crisis by threatening a financial one,” Cavuto said. “But, Mr. President, you guarantee both when your very actions and words create that crisis or make people think that you’re hiding one.”

The Fox News host then listed some of the president’s most “worrisome and tiresome” lies, calling out Trump for changing his story on controversies ranging from “hush money” payments to women who said they had affairs with him to his knowledge of a 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer in hopes of gathering damaging information on Hillary Clinton. 

“You are right to say that some are out to get you,” Cavuto said to Trump. ”But oftentimes, Mr. President, the problem is you: what you say, and how you keep changing what you say.”

Check out Cavuto’s full takedown in the video above.

Megyn Kelly Net Worth: $15 Million

One of the most high-profile Fox News personalities, Megyn Kelly became a national superstar during the 2016 presidential election. Previously the host of “America Live,” she’s hosted “The Kelly File” since 2013. In January, she announced a move to rival network NBC at the end of her contract, to host a daily daytime show and a Sunday news program. The value of Kelly’s NBC contract hasn’t been publicly revealed, but Forbes reported she was seeking a salary of more than $20 million for her next contract — which makes her $6 million annual payday from FOX seem paltry by comparison. Currently, Megyn Kelly’s net worth is $15 million, but this will almost definitely increase after her move to NBC.
