President Donald Trump has been on an extended tweetstorm today, firing off posts on topics ranging from voter registration and the police to the stock market and “JOBS.”
But one tweet Trump sent out seems to suggest that a very definite rift has opened up between the president and Fox News, which has been so willing to peddle his propaganda that the network is often referred to as Trump TV:
So hard to watch @FoxNews anymore. They are working so hard against the people (viewers) that got them there. Their contributors are a disaster, and all over the place. The Radical Left has scared Fox into submission, just like they have so many others. Sad, but we will WIN!

Wow! That’s serious criticism coming from a man who won four years ago in large part thanks to Fox, and it drew plenty of comments from other social media users:
Watching Trump fight Fox News is like watching Hitler and Stalin go at it. You just hope both of them lose.

Nope. They’re not “working hard” against you. They’re just, like almost everyone else now, tired of your constant lies, chaos, hate, divisiveness, recklessness, danger, cowardice and treason. Face it…you’ve lost just about everyone… #Trump

Thanks for the tv analysis, jackoff.
Want to work on Covid now?

Just maybe Fox is finally seeing who you really are, can’t believe it took them this long!

Agreed. It’s always been very hard to watch Fox News, but it’s IMPOSSIBLE to listen to you!

It’s like one of those on-again-off-again relationships from high school

I have an idea: stop watching so much television. Try reading a book. Or an intelligence report.

Here’s the thing about Trump’s attack on Fox: If he’s so upset with them, why does he keep giving them interviews? Wouldn’t the best way to punish them be to refuse to go on their shows? Guess the “stable genius” hasn’t thought that one through.
