11 of the most outrageous things Trump said in his rambling Fox and Friends interview

We all know that Donald Trump cannot get enough of the Fox News show Fox & Friends.

So, when he was invited on to the show for an over the phone interview on Thursday, he felt it was the perfect opportunity to get a few things off his chest.

Rather than answering a few questions and actually conversing with the hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, the president went on an epic rant so bad that they couldn't get a word in edgeways.

He kicked things off by informing everyone that it was first lady Melania's birthday, which was true. Happy 48th Birthday Melania. Then things went south.

The POTUS launched a full-scale assault on the Democrats, Hillary Clinton (again Donald? Seriously give it a break), the Iran nuclear deal and the ongoing FBI investigation.

He claimed that former FBI director James Comey has been "leaking for years. He did an illegal act and he said it himself in order to get a special counsel against me. He is guilty of crimes."

Labelled the corruption of the FBI "a disgrace", that his Presidency deserved an "A-plus grade", that he was "disappointed" with the Justice Department and it was filled with people "who shouldn't be there".

He also touched on the NBC News political director Chuck Todd, who he had criticised on Twitter just days before, his newfound friendship with Kanye West and then eventually moved on to CNN.

In an exasperated tone he said:

When you look at some of the others, you look at, like CNN, they’ll have a council of seven people, and of the seven people, every one of them is against me.

I'm saying, where do they even find these people?

Our Justice Department, which I try and stay away from, but at some point, I won’t... should be looking at that kind of stuff [alleged anti-Trump bias in the FBI], not the nonsense of collusion with Russia and everyone knows it.

The hosts repeatedly tried to inject but there was nothing they could really do.

After 20 minutes Kilmeade eventually managed to intervene and halt Trump's tirade by amusingly saying:

We could talk to you all day but it looks like you have a million things to do.

Maybe they didn't enjoy it quite as much as Trump basically dominated all of the airtime, but at least Trump enjoyed it.

That being said he probably didn't do himself any favours and his critics were quick to point out how badly he had performed.
