Roland Martin Fires Back at Kayleigh McEnany Over ‘Lap Dog’ Comments

“You, right now, are a fake journalist, sitting in a host’s chair on Fox News when you have no training for the job whatsoever. In fact, your entire network is a lap dog for Donald Trump.”

After Kayleigh McEnany called MSNBC contributor Roland Martin and host Tiffany Cross “lap dogs” for Joe Biden, Martin bit back on Roland Martin Unfiltered.

“First, Kayleigh says that Biden ‘lap dogs follow his lead’. Let me help you out, Kayleigh. I’ve never worked for Joe Biden,” Martin said on his digital show. “I’ve never worked for President Barack Obama. In fact, I’ve never worked for a politician. You, however, literally was a lap dog for Donald Trump. You literally lied to the American people on a regular basis. You, right now, are a fake journalist, sitting in a host’s chair on Fox News when you have no training for the job whatsoever. In fact, your entire network is a lap dog for Donald Trump. The suck up that takes place by Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson and on and on, it’s unbelievable.

“There’s a reason your network is getting sued by Dominion, because of the lies y’all pushed during the voting and the election being rigged. There is no great evidence of a network being lap dogs for Donald Trump. You know why you’re a lap dog for Donald Trump? Your ratings went down after you properly called Arizona for Joe Biden. And what did your network do? Your network fired the guy who made the call. There is no great example, Kayleigh, of lap dogs than you, and Fox News.”

Martin continued by saying employing Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara, is further evidence of “lap dog” behavior. He then took issue with Fox News host Harris Faulkner saying she didn’t know what Martin does for a living, saying he has her phone number and she has is, and the pair went to the Apollo Theatre together. He pointed out he doesn’t work for MSNBC, like Faulkner insinuated, before saying she should do some “basic-ass research”.

Former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against CNN in October; now, over a month later, the cable news channel is asking a judge in Florida to toss the case (h/t The Hill).

Trump filed the lawsuit against CNN because he accuses the network of defaming his character during the 2020 Presidential Election. Trump’s attorneys argued CNN “has sought to use its massive influence — purportedly as a ‘trusted’ news source.”

Additionally, Trump’s lawyer says that CNN attempted “to defame the Plaintiff in the minds of its viewers and readers for the purpose of defeating him politically, culminating in CNN claiming credit for ‘[getting] Trump out’ in the 2020 presidential election.”

CNN lawyers have pushed back against Trump’s claims saying that the former president “seeks to silence any criticism of Plaintiff’s debunked claim that the 2020 presidential election was ‘stolen.’”

“Any alleged association resulting therefrom are also ‘rhetorical hyperbole’ and ‘pure opinion’ under well-established principles of defamation law,” CNN’s lawyers added.

Rumors have swirled over Fox and News Corp. possibly merging into one entity, but Irenic Capital, which owns about 2% of News Corp., has taken issue with its potential merger.

A merger would produce a more complicated company and turn off investors rather than increase the company’s lagging stock price, Irenic Capital stated in a letter to the News Corp. board.

“And even if such synergies do exist today, they would principally benefit Fox and reside in the News Media segment of News Corp,” Irenic Capital said (h/t Deadline). “For example, Fox Business may benefit from greater integration with The Wall Street Journal and some of Dow Jones’ other properties, but it is highly debatable whether the benefits from such an association flow both ways.

“Combining News Corp with Fox will result in a combined company that is obviously more complex than both companies left separate.” 

Irenic believes a unification would aid Fox far better than News Corp. and cautioned that the board has a fiduciary responsibility to investigate all possible routes to develop value beyond the one suggested by its primary shareholder.

Fox News held its annual All-American Tree Lighting at FOX Square in New York, New York Monday during “The Five.” The event was hosted by Greg Gutfeld, Judge Jeanine Pirro, Dana Perino, Jessica Tarlov and Jesse Watters

In a release, the network said it partnered with the Police Athletic League (PAL) to host a toy drive benefiting New York City’s youth. The network also honored first responders by selecting representatives of the FDNY and NYPD to light this year’s tree.

Guests included FOX News personalities and their families along with first responders from the NYPD and FDNY, including members of NYPD Precinct 32, who lost Wilbert Mora and Jason Rivera this year, and members of EMS Station 49, who lost EMS captain Alison Russo earlier this year.

FOX’s All-American Christmas tree stands at 50 feet tall and is adorned by 12,000 ornaments and 340,000 lights. The tree has 500 branches, a star topper that is over six feet tall and more than four miles of cord wrapped throughout.  Made in America, the tree features a patriotic theme of red, white, and blue decorations.

“After a busy year in America, it’s nice to, let’s just take a step back and celebrate traditions like this and remember how important it is to come together and focus on what truly matters,” said co-host Dana Perino. “This tree is not just for us to enjoy. We want you watching at home to be able to come here and make Christmas memories with your family and friends and of course, your pets, too, of course, as you can imagine.”
