Steve Doocy praised by Trump-hating MSNBC for pro-FBI stance: ‘suddenly… like an actual journalist’

Fox & Friends cohost Steve Doocy seems to have developed a sudden case of amnesia when it comes to the FBI, which has all but destroyed it’s trust with the American people through a number of actions, be it the bureau’s dubious role in the Russian collusion hoax, the Gov. Whitmer kidnap fiasco, the actions of disgraced agents like Peter Strzok or treating concerned parents like domestic terrorists.

Doocy has spoken out in support of the FBI in the face of the withering criticism the bureau has received after the unprecedented raid on the Mar-a-Lago home of former President Donald Trump, arguing that agents are “caught in the crossfire” and that the rhetoric could result in violence.

This being his stance in an interview this week with Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who said “we need to have confidence in our intelligence agencies that they are there to protect us and not to go after people for political purposes. So the burden is on them to prove this is not a politically motivated witch hunt.”

In taking a pro-FBI position, Doocy has earned praise from the Trump-hating left, as seen Thursday when MSNBC’s John Heilemann took to praising the Fox News host — Heilemann has called Trump “the disgraced, twice-impeached, coup-plotting, deplatformed, pathologically duplicitous ex-President.”

“The man has suddenly started to talk like an actual journalist,” Heilemann said, before running a clip of the interview with Paul.

“If you told me two weeks ago that I would be guest hosting this show and I’d be playing Steve Doocy almost every day as one of the few Republicans speaking for what used to be the way Republicans always talked and is basically common sense, I would have bet you every dollar in Neal Katyal’s bank account that that would never have happened, but there it is,” Heilemann quipped.

Part of the cabal that has politicized Trump’s very existence, Heilemann, who was filling in for MSNBC shill Nicolle Wallace, turned to New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker for affirmation, asking why Doocy was “in such a minority in understanding the way the Republicans have politicized this.”

“Yeah, it’s hardly a liberal point of view to say to a sitting senator that this is dangerous for the FBI and that this kind of rhetoric has undermined the credibility of law enforcement,” Baker said.

He noted that the FBI is not “immune from criticism,” before drawing a line on that criticism — the view of the FBI boiling down to who they are targeting it seems. If the target turns out to be Trump all is good, and any criticism is “a knee-jerk… response to the fact that their hero, former President Trump, was under scrutiny,” Baker opined.

“My guess is, I don’t know this, but my guess is that Steve Doocy knows people in the law enforcement space,” Baker added, “People who are probably very conservative, by the way, who find this to be very troubling, to find it perplexing to see Republicans of all people attacking the credibility of law enforcement when they’ve made great political points are being for ‘Back the Blue’ and for law enforcement.”
