President Trump used his Twitter account on Sunday night to lash out at Fox News. He said the mega-news giant “is now loading up with Democrats” and “even using Fake unsourced New York Times as a ‘source’ of information.”
“Watching @FoxNews weekend anchors is worse than watching low ratings Fake News @CNN or Lyin’ Brian Williams,” Trump tweeted. “(Remember when he totally fabricated a War Story trying to make himself into a hero, got fired. A very dishonest journalist!).”
The president then fired off two more tweets in which the president said: “And the crew of degenerate Comcast (NBC/MSNBC) Trump haters, who do whatever Brian & Steve tell them to do. Like CNN, NBC is also way down in the ratings. But @FoxNews, who failed in getting the very BORING Dem debates, is now loading up with Democrats & even using Fake unsourced @nytimes as a ‘source’ of information (ask the Times what they paid for the Boston Globe, & what they sold it for (lost 1.5 Billion Dollars), or their old headquarters building disaster, or their unfunded liability? @FoxNews is changing fast, but they forgot the people who got them there!”
It was not initially clear what Fox News program Trump was referring to in his tweets or what story he was talking about that attributed to the Times.
Trump went on to single out a few names later on in the night.
“Impossible to believe that @FoxNews has hired @donnabrazile, the person fired by @CNN (after they tried to hide the bad facts, & failed) for giving Crooked Hillary Clinton the questions to a debate,” Trump tweeted, calling the move “something unimaginable.”
“Now she is all over Fox, including Shep Smith, by far their lowest rated show,” the president said. “Watch the @FoxNews weekend daytime anchors, who are terrible, go after her big time. That’s what they want – but it sure is not what the audience wants!”
Brazile is a former CNN political strategist and she served as vice chair and interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman before stepping down in 2016 amid its hacked email scandal. She had allegedly tipped off Hilary Clinton’s campaign team about debate questions that she was supposed to be asked prior to a face-off with Bernie Sanders.
Brazile, 59, has been serving as a commentator for Fox since March.
“There’s an audience on Fox News that doesn’t hear enough from Democrats,” she said at the time.
