“I guess you’re too busy draining the swamp to ever stop and smell the stink you’re creating.”

Fox News host Neil Cavuto had some harsh words for Donald Trump on Thursday: Mr. President, you stink. 

The host listed some of Trump’s worst lies and misstatements, including claiming there was widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election and the recent revelation that he repaid his personal lawyer Michael Cohen for $130,000 in hush money given to porn star Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels, after he’d repeatedly denied knowing about the situation.

“How can you drain the swamp if you’re the one that keeps muddying the water?” Cavuto asked. “You didn’t know about that $130,000 payment to a porn star until you did.” 

Cavuto, one of the few hosts on Fox News who calls out the president, said Trump cannot criticize the press for reporting “fake news” when he repeatedly makes false statements without correction.

“Your base probably might not care,” Cavuto added. “But you should. I guess you’re too busy draining the swamp to ever stop and smell the stink you’re creating. That’s your doing. That’s your stink. Mr. President, that’s your swamp.”

Booming: Unemployment Drops to Lowest Level Since 2000

The Bureau of Labor Statistics released new unemployment numbers on Friday morning and although the added jobs number was below the expected 188,000, the overall rate has fallen to 3.9 percent. This is the lowest number since 2000.

More from Market Watch

The increase in new jobs last month was spearheaded by professional businesses. They added 54,000 workers.

Hiring also rose smartly among health-care providers and manufacturers, each of which added 24,000 jobs. Construction firms also increased payrolls by 17,000

Wholesaler and government were the only sectors to shed jobs.

Employment gains for March and April were revised up by a combined 30,000. The government said 135,000 new jobs were created in March instead of 103,000. February’s increase was trimmed to 324,000 from 326,000. The increase in new jobs last month was spearheaded by professional businesses. They added 54,000 workers.

The White House attributes a decrease in unemployment numbers to President Trump's economic agenda and prioritization of deregulation.

Giuliani says Trump repaid lawyer for $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels

In a sweeping interview on Fox News Wednesday night, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said President Donald Trump had repaid his lawyer Michael Cohen for a $130,000 payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election.

“It’s going to turn out to be perfectly legal; that money was not campaign money,” Giuliani, Trump’s new lead attorney regarding issues related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, told Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

“Sorry, I’m giving you a fact now that you don’t know,” Giuliani continued, before saying that the payment was “funneled through a law firm, and then the president repaid it.”

In a sweeping interview on Fox News Wednesday night, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said President Donald Trump had repaid his lawyer Michael Cohen for a $130,000 payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election.

“It’s going to turn out to be perfectly legal; that money was not campaign money,” Giuliani, Trump’s new lead attorney regarding issues related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, told Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

“Sorry, I’m giving you a fact now that you don’t know,” Giuliani continued, before saying that the payment was “funneled through a law firm, and then the president repaid it.”

The news directly contradicts Trump’s statements last month that he had no knowledge that Cohen had paid Daniels. Reporters aboard Air Force One had asked whether Trump knew about the payment, to which the president replied: “No.”

“You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen,” Trump said when pressed on the issue. “Michael is my attorney. You’ll have to ask Michael.”

The White House declined to comment to HuffPost.

Giuliani said Trump paid Cohen a retainer of $35,000 “when he was doing no work for the president” and insinuated that that fund was used for reimbursements. Such retainers are typically paid monthly, although it’s unclear what contract Trump had with Cohen.

“I said that’s how he’s repaying it, with a little profit and a margin for paying taxes, for Michael,” he continued.

When Hannity asked if Trump knew about the details of the payments, Giuliani backtracked slightly, saying that the president “didn’t know about the specifics of it, as far as I know.”

“But he did know about the general arrangement that Michael would take care of things like this. I take care of things like this for my clients,” Giuliani said. “I don’t burden them with every single thing that comes along. These are busy people.”

Giuliani joined Trump’s legal team last month. John Dowd, Trump’s former top lawyer, resigned in March after repeatedly butting heads with the president over how cooperative he should be with Mueller.

Dowd had urged Trump to reject any sit-down interview but grew increasingly worried that his client would ignore his advice.
