Breaking News: D.C. Mayor Has 'Black Lives Matter' Painted Near White House... Readmore
Donald Trump seems to have a difficult time realizing that the attorney general, department heads, and the media are not around as a means of support for him. Anyone who doesn't support his every whim is fired, slammed publicly for doing a bad job, or called "fake news."
Most recently, the people who have been upsetting are personalities at Fox News, his favored network, or at least they were his favorite at one point. He attacked the conservative news network on Twitter Thursday for "doing nothing to help Republicans and me" get reelected.
Fox News is definitely in the doghouse, especially so after host Neil Cavuto took the president to task for saying he was taking hydroxychloroquine just to be safe, despite health experts' warnings and not having coronavirus COVID-19. On Thursday when he went on his Twitter tirade, he included Cavuto, as well as other hosts and contributors, under the label of "garbage." He said the news network used to be "great."
"Many will disagree, but @FoxNews is doing nothing to help Republicans, and me, get reelected on November 3rd," Trump tweeted. "Sure, there are some truly GREAT people on Fox, but you also have some real 'garbage' littered all over the network, people like dummy Juan Williams, Schumerite Chris ... Hahn, Richard Goodstein, Donna Brazile, Niel [sic] Cavuto, and many others."
"They repeat the worst of the Democrat speaking points and lies," continued the president. "All of the good is totally nullified and more. Net result = BAD! CNN & MSDNC are all in for the Do-Nothing Democrats! Fox WAS Great!"
Fox conducted a news poll on Thursday evening that said 48 percent of voters reported they would vote for the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden. In the same poll last month, he and Trump were tied at 42 percent.
This isn't the first sign of a crack in the formerly chummy relationship. Trump attacked Fox News last month for being fed "Democrat talking points."
"The people who are watching @FoxNews, in record numbers (thank you President Trump) are angry. They want an alternative now. So do I!" the president tweeted on April 26.
He doesn't seem to understand it's not Fox News but him and that voters are also looking for an alternative, just like he is.
Trump called out Cavuto earlier this week, labeling him as "idiot," "foolish," "gullible," and "an asshole." He also noted that Fox News is "no longer the same."
"We miss the great Roger Ailes," tweeted Trump. Ailes was the former head of Fox News who resigned amongst several accusations of sexual assault. He died a short time later in 2017 but had helped Trump prepare for debates for the 2016 election.
"You have more anti-Trump people, by far, than ever before," Trump wrote. "Looking for a new outlet!"
He's missing completely that the reason Fox News is speaking negatively is because of his actions and statements. There's no doubt they still support him. But if he keeps slamming them, that's in danger too.
