Independent Women’s Voice President Tammy Bruce and former CNN contributor Jeffrey Lord called the mainstream media “obsessed” with President Trump and compared them to drug addicts avoiding rehab Friday while appearing on the “Ingraham Angle” to discuss the aftermath of the Mueller report release.

“At this point, with the clips you showed, it’s turned into fan fiction. … It’s almost as if they know it’s absolutely impossible. But they can’t let it go. It’s like that show, ‘Intervention,’ where the person starts to run across the parking lot because they don’t want to get into the van to go to the airport to go to the rehab center,” Bruce said.

TRUMP CAMPAIGN GOES ON POST-MUELLER OFFENSIVE

“They’ve completely lost any sense of normalcy of any kind of sense of reality. They know it. They don’t care. They just think, well, maybe this is going to be click bait and maybe some of our audience will come back.”

Ingraham played both Bruce and Lord a montage of CNN hosts and pundits talking about how the Mueller report release and results were a win for Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

TRUMP WORRIED MUELLER APPOINTMENT WOULD DISTRACT FROM HIS PRESIDENCY: ‘THIS IS THE END. I’M F—ED’

“Let’s be clear this report is a gift to the government of Russia,” one CNN commentator said in the montage.

The Mueller report was released Thursday and showed investigators did not find evidence of collusion between the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and Russian operatives.

Lord said he believes the media is “obsessed” with President Trump and disappointed the report didn’t find evidence of collusion. He also said he believes the investigation into how the Russia investigation began will deliver the “real truth.”

“They’re about to get the real truth with all of these deep-state people in the FBI and the Department of Justice who were colluding with members of the media to trap Donald Trump, to frame Donald Trump. And they were obsessed about it. They’re still obsessed about it,” Lord said.

“They’re so disappointed they didn’t get him and they’re going to try again. The only one they’re going to get is themselves.”

White House principal deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley struck back at CNN host Anderson Cooper on Friday, a day after having a contentious interview with the journalist, saying he would not be lectured by a member of the mainstream media who has been “lying” about President Trump.

“First of all, I’m not going to take a lecture on truth-telling from anybody in the mainstream media who has been lying about this president for the last two years, telling the American people that Donald Trump committed treason which is a crime punishable by death as you well know,” Gidley told “Ingraham Angle” host Laura Ingraham.

ROMNEY SAYS MUELLER REPORT LEFT HIM ‘SICKENED AT THE EXTENT AND PERVASIVENESS OF DISHONESTY AND MISDIRECTION’

On Thursday, Cooper and Gidley went back and forth over the release of the long-awaited Mueller report.

The report showed investigators did not find evidence of collusion between the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and Russia but did lay out an array of actions taken by the president that were examined as part of the investigation’s obstruction inquiry.

At one point during the interview Cooper asked Gidley if the president lied.

“No, i’m not aware of him lying. He hasn’t lied to me,” Gidley responded.

“I feel bad that you’re scared to say that your boss lied,” Cooper later added.

Gidley accused CNN of wanting accusations of collusion between the president and Russia to be true.

“The point is, for me to sit there with CNN and listen to them, who they wanted this to be true so badly. So many in the media did, and I understand why they don’t drop it,” Gidley said.

“Because if they did, they would be admitting the fact that the last two years of their life was a complete and total waste.”

Washington Examiner chief political correspondent Byron York said the Obama administration “did not do itself proud” when it came to dealing with the Russian interference during and in the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election.

“The Obama administration was pretty energetic and looking at what the Trump campaign might’ve been doing during the campaign but not as energetic into actually looking at or stopping what the Russians were doing,” York told “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

TRUMP RAILS AGAINST ASSOCIATES WHO SPOKE TO MUELLER, CLAIMS ‘TOTAL BULL—T’

“Remember, we certainly knew by the time of the first WikiLeaks disclosures during the Democratic National Convention, we knew who was behind this. And the Obama administration did not do itself proud in this.”

Thursday’s release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia’s attempt to interfere during the 2016 elections brought focus to how the Obama administration confronted meddling, an issue President Trump himself raised on Thursday.

“Anything the Russians did concerning the 2016 Election was done while Obama was President,” Trump tweeted. “He was told about it and did nothing! Most importantly, the vote was not affected.”

York also commented on potential information that could be gained from the investigation into how the Russia query began.

“Mueller didn’t even release what’ called the scope memo, the Aug. 2 memo that Rod Rosenstein wrote to Robert Mueller expanding his assignment, and we still do not know what he was actually investigating. So yeah, there’s a lot left,” York said.

Former South Carolina congressman Trey Gowdy believes the release of the Mueller report has not resolved the partisan debate over the Trump campaign’s dealings with Russia in 2016, and that the real “verdict” on the situation will be rendered by the 2020 presidential election.

“I was within in a really smart universe of people that did not think this report should be made public. I didn’t think it was going to change anyone’s mind and resolve anything and for once in my life, I was right. It’s resolved nothing,” Gowdy said Friday on “Your World with Neil Cavuto.

TRUMP CAMPAIGN GOES ON POST-MUELLER ATTACK AGAINST ‘OBAMA-ERA DOJ AND FBI,’ WARNS ‘JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED’

“You’re going to have two more years of investigations. They’re not going to go forward with impeachment because that’s dicey. But they are going to go forward with investigations on four or five difference House committees. The verdict will be rendered in November of 2020.”

On Thursday, Attorney General William Barr released a version of the Mueller report with redactions that showed investigators did not find evidence of collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. It did not come to a conclusion on the topic of obstruction of justice.

Gowdy was not surprised by any information that came to light from the report’s release and criticized Barr for sharing the report in the first place.

KELLYANNE CONWAY, AFTER MUELLER REPORT’S RELEASE, SAYS PRESS APOLOGIES ARE IN ORDER

“I was not surprised because this report was not written for the public. It was written for the attorney general and it was the attorney general and a whole bunch of my Republican former colleagues that thought it would be a neat idea to share an oppo (sic) research piece on someone who is not indicted. The department of justice doesn’t do research papers. They either issue indictments or they do not,” Gowdy told Cavuto.

“Clearly he didn’t have enough evidence on collusion and what I would say with respect to Mueller is if you have enough on obstruction, then charge him and let a jury of 12 decide whether or not your evidence carries the burden of persuasion.”

President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani appeared on the “Ingraham Angle” Thursday and spoke about his main issues with the Mueller investigation and declared the Russia collusion narrative “over.”

“I think the report really displays the fact that this is over,” Giuliani told host Laura Ingraham.

“It’s not over. They are going to run on this for 2020,” Ingraham interjected.

“It’s over. They don’t know it yet,” Giuliani said.

GEORGE CONWAY CALLS TRUMP A CANCER

After two years, a redacted version of Mueller’s report was released Thursday showing investigators did not find proof of collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. But the report did reveal an array of controversial actions by the president that were examined as part of the investigation’s obstruction probe.

Democrats criticized Barr and demanded an unredacted version of the report while Republicans demanded an investigation into how the Russia collusion narrative began.

Giuliani said that his biggest problem with Mueller was the staff he picked to work on the investigation.

“I think, the people he hired. I will never understand how you hire a completely partisan, biased staff of people, one of whom was the counsel to the Clinton Foundation, to investigate President Trump. If I was investigating Hillary Clinton, I hired the head of the Trump Foundation, I think we’d be in a lot of trouble,” Giuliani said.

GIULIANI: THIS PRESIDENT HAS BEEN TREATED UNFAIRLY

The former mayor also took exception to how President Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen was portrayed in the report.

“The complete deception of trying to present the facts from Cohen as if they are true,” Giuliani said.

“I can tell you many of the things I have personal knowledge about on the report from Cohen are complete lies. To take him and put them there as if we are going to take his credibility over the president of United States is totally warped.”

The U.S. ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, defended Vice President Mike Pence against accusations of homophobia alleged by Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg and compared the claims to a “hate hoax along the lines of Jussie Smollett.”

“Mayor Pete has been pushing this hate hoax along the lines of Jussie Smollett for a very long time now, several weeks,” Grenell, who is openly gay, said Thursday on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

Smollett, an actor, is accused of faking a hate crime and is currently being sued by the city of Chicago.

ROB SMITH: I’M GAY AND SUPPORT MIKE PENCE — DON’T BELIEVE PETE BUTTIGIEG’S CLAIM THAT PENCE IS ANTI-GAY

Buttigieg, who is openly gay and was once cordial with Pence, has boosted criticism of the vice president calling him anti-gay.

“This is someone who was against ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ who felt it was too pro-gay.  He wanted to make sure even closeted members couldn’t serve,” Buttigieg said Tuesday about Pence on CNN.

Grenell, who called Pence a friend, accused the mayor of South Bend of drumming up accusations to boost fundraising and asked why he didn’t speak up while Pence was the governor of Indiana.

“It’s ironic that right about now when he’s starting his fund-raising apparatus to run for president that he comes up with this… idea and this attack,” Grenell said.

The ambassador defended Pence and his wife, cited their Christianity and said the couple “accepted” Grendell and his partner.

“Mike and Karen are great people, they’re godly people, they’re followers of Christ.  They don’t have hate in their heart for anyone. They know my partner, they have accepted us. You asked me do we agree philosophically on every single issue? No,” Grendell said adding that he disagrees with other people he respects.

BUTTIGIEG, ONCE CORDIAL TO PENCE, NOW CRITICAL AMID CAMPAIGN

Grendell chastised the gay community for shifting from a group about tolerance to a group that demands “we all think alike” before noting that Pence has always supported Buttigieg.

“When Mayor Pete came out, the vice president complimented him and said he holds him in high regard. The vice president or then governor has said nothing but positive things about Mayor Pete. I think this is a total hate hoax and I think it’s outrageous,” Grenell said.

While many analysts are advising Democrats to move on from Mueller report and the issue of collusion, The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway said Thursday it will be hard for America to move on because it’s been “held hostage” by the idea of President Trump colluding with Russia.

“The country was basically held hostage by a collusion theory, a theory that the president of the United States was a foreign agent. This undermined the administration of our government. It totally sidelined the Department of Justice, it hampered our ability to do foreign policy. It was a very negative thing,” Hemingway told “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

“There needs to be accountability. We are being given indications there will be accountability for this.”

After two years, a redacted version of Mueller’s report was released Thursday showing investigators did not find proof of collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia but revealed an array of controversial actions by the president that were examined as part of the investigation’s obstruction probe.

Democrats criticized Barr and demanded an unredacted version of the report while Republicans demanded an investigation into how the Russia collusion narrative began.

Hemingway said the idea that people would just “move on” was “absurd.”

“The American people tolerated this investigation because they were told there was reason to believe the president was a traitor. The idea that we are just going to quickly move on from this like ‘OK, I guess it was our bad, there was no collusion,’ but now we’re trying to go on obstruction is patently absurd,” Hemingway said.

Thursday’s release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was supposed to be the end of a two-year-long probe but as the “The Five” discovered Thursday, it may be only the beginning of a continuing debate between Democrats and Republicans.

The issue of whether President Trump obstructed justice led to a very tense moment between co-hosts Marie Harf, Dan Bongino and Jessie Watters.

“Why are they not apologizing for being wrong?” Bongino asked Harf, wondering why Democrats don’t just “take the loss” and admit they were wrong about the president colluding with Russia or obstructing justice.

“They are not wrong,” Harf responded. “If you look at Part Two of the report which is on obstruction. Mueller outlines multiple attempts — “

“He didn’t collude,” Bongino interrupted.

“Can I finish?” Harf retorted.

Thursday’s release of the Mueller report highlighted the partisanship on Capitol Hill, with Democrats calling for the unredacted report and continuing investigations while Republicans claim vindication and now want to focus on how the Mueller probe started in the first place.

Harf and Watters continued to argue their perceptions of the report.

Mueller “didn’t say that in the report. He did not say that there was no collusion,” Harf said.

“You don’t need to succeed in obstruction or have an underlying crime legally for it to be obstruction.”

“If that’s your argument, the audience can’t hear that. It’s gobbledygook,” Watters said.

“It happens to be the truth, Jesse,” Harf responded.

“Collusion was a very simple thing to sell. Everybody understood that. Attempted obstruction of a crime that never happened, you can’t sell that,” Watters said.

Sen. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, appearing Thursday on “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” said the Trump campaign’s refusal to accept “forbidden fruit” while interacting with Russian operatives intent on influencing the 2016 election was a good thing for America.

“”What I take away from this multiple times — and the attorney general was clear about this — multiple times they dangled forbidden fruit in front of people, in front of the Trump campaign, and they didn’t bite,” Jordan told Cavuto.

“That is reassuring. That … reflects well on the president of the United States. Multiple times they had opportunities to collude, and they didn’t take them up on it, which is critically important information.”

Jordan and Meadows were reacting to the Mueller report’s release on Thursday. The report did point to an array of controversial actions and requests made by the president that were examined as part of the investigation’s obstruction inquiry, though it ultimately made no finding of collusion with Moscow.

Cavuto asked the senator and congressman what they could do stop Russian interference in future elections, or if they would be concerned with any 2020 campaign staff taking meetings with Russian officials.

Meadows said the Obama administration was aware that the Russians were looking to interfere in the 2016 election, even as Donald Trump was in the dark.

“Interesting enough that the only people who knew the Russians were involved during the 2016 election were the Obama administration. It wasn’t the president of the United States today. It was the president back then,” Meadows said.
