One of the many reasons we think Brit Hume has been as successful for as long as he has been is his ability to dryly and politely deliver his points, even when he’s calling someone out or correcting them. No matter what topic or to whom he is speaking, he always sounds like the nice guy in the room.
Take for example his ‘correcting’ The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman:
That’s not what I heard him say. What I took away is that an action taken in the public interest cannot be the basis of impeachment because that action is also helpful to a president’s re-election prospects. https://t.co/d0EiXD8QQ4

Huh, that’s what we heard too.
But that doesn’t feed the agenda, Brit. You big meanie.

So cut her some slack.
Poor @maggieNYT spanked by Brit.

Who would think dumbing down a 6min answer to a few sentences would miss important context? Certainly not our illustrious gatekeepers.

You didn't hear him say it, because he didn't.

Maggie has a hearing problem.
OK, an *understanding* problem.

Like others in the media, she has a narrative problem.
Well you know the NYT …they distort or lie, whatever us convenient.

If this were the case then no president would be able to do the right thing for the country if it some way benefited him. He'd have to just allow the bad thing to happen. He would be open for impeachment. God I detest these leftist hacks!

If any of what the Democrats are trying to impeach Trump over were actually legit no president could ever do his job again.
But we digress.
