This is one of his longer more rambling tweeter rants.


President Donald Trump let loose on Fox News on Wednesday, saying the network "isn’t working for us anymore" while encouraging his followers to look for an alternative to his long-cherished cable news channel.

In a three-part Twitter attack, Trump escalated his feud that started earlier this year when the network started featuring more Democratic commentators and hosted a series of town halls with Democratic presidential candidates.

On Wednesday Trump tee'd off on Fox News over an appearance by Democratic National Committee spokesperson Xochitl Hinojosa.

"Just watched @FoxNews heavily promoting the Democrats through their DNC Communications Director, spewing out whatever she wanted with zero pushback by anchor, @SandraSmithFox. Terrible considering that Fox couldn’t even land a debate, the Dems give them NOTHING! @CNN & @MSNBC are all in for the Open Border Socialists (or beyond)," Trump wrote.

In a wide-ranging interview on the 2020 election with Fox News anchor Sandra Smith, Hinojosa took multiple swipes at the president, his field operation in 2016, and policies like border separations — but what seemed to provoke Trump was a reference to polling that shows him losing to Democratic front-runners in several battleground states.

"Fox hires “give Hillary the questions” @donnabrazile, Juan Williams and low ratings Shep Smith. HOPELESS & CLUELESS! They should go all the way LEFT and I will still find a way to Win - That’s what I do, Win. Too Bad!" Trump continued, "I don’t want to Win for myself, I only want to Win for the people. The New @FoxNews is letting millions of GREAT people down! We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!"

Both Smith and Williams have landed in hot water with Trump in the past for critical coverage of the escalating trade war with China, references to unflattering polling numbers and other perceived transgressions. Trump tweeted in early August that the network is "different from what they used to be."
Some Fox hosts have closed ranks behind their employer in the face of Trump's criticism. "Fox News isn’t supposed to work for you," tweeted Brit Hume, a longtime political analyst with the network who has called out Trump in the past.

Hinojosa hit back at the president later Wednesday morning in a tweet of her own.

"Thanks for watching. It’s pronounced So-Chi, you know, like the city in Russia," she wrote.

from one of Trump's recent 'chopper talk's after a bad Fox News poll:

"Fox is different, there's no question about it. And I think they're making a big mistake because Fox was treated very badly by the Democrats. Very, very badly. Having to do with the debates and other things. I think Fox is making a big mistake because, you know, I’m the one who calls the shots on the really big debates. I guess we're probably planning on three of them. And I'm not happy with Fox.

I'm certainly happy -- I think Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs. I think Tucker Carlson and Laura, Jesse Watters and Jeanine. We have a lot of great people."

Trump is not in charge of who gets debates... plus note the use of 'we' when citing all the people who spend their shows praising Trump.

Concerned that he's taken to using the royal pronoun, tw?

Anyway, Murdoch's sons ARE relatively left-leaning and the Donna Brazile hire is downright bizarre...

more of a dictatorial 'we', he has repeatedly suggested they are supposed to be on his team
(and not far off given the admin & Fox News hire from each other... i believe the count is in the mid twenties currently)

he complained when they had Dem candidates on, when a Fox poll is bad, it's ridiculous (especially the polls... he's basically saying they should rig them, i see no other way to interpret)

Donna probably came cheap as she's been disgraced, & hired as they like to pretend they are fair-and-balanced... keeping a nice 100:1 ratio or whatever they have

You way underestimate how much is unclear to you. Not just on the FOX News schedule.

But yeah the president does have a couple of cheerleaders on FOX News.

more than a couple... Trump listed many (and all show hosts if I'm not mistaken):

"I'm certainly happy -- I think Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs. I think Tucker Carlson and Laura [Ingraham], Jesse Watters and Jeanine [Pirro]. We have a lot of great people."

plus the dimwitted folk on Fox & Friends... who set his daily agenda

Walsh: Do you believe he's ever told the American people a lie?

Fox Business' Stuart Varney: No

(and claiming phone calls happened that didn't happen isn't a lie)


what the hell

Stephanie Grisham & Kayleigh McEnany have both been out this week with the same ridiculous claim that Trump doesn't lie... apparently a talking point & Varney is on the team
