No matter what your party affiliation is, Donald Trump requires total obedience. This has been clear in his recent actions in Georgia and Arizona. The president has called for governors Brian Kemp and Doug Ducey. He even called for jail-time for Republican officials in Georgia who weren’t willing to rig the election for him.
No one anchor on Fox News could be considered a Liberal. Some of the hard news personalities, though, are willing to call out Trump when he does something wrong. And despite all the Trump support of the night-time stars of the network, this is enough for the president to declare the network “dead.”
Trump made the claim during an angry Wednesday morning tweet. “Can’t believe how badly Fox News is doing in the ratings,” he wrote. “They played right into the hands of the Radical Left Democrats, & now are floating in limboland. Hiring fired Donna Brazille and far worse, allowing endless negative and unedited commercials. Fox News is Dead! Really Sad!”
Trump continued, “Perhaps the biggest difference between 2016 and 2020 is Fox News. Despite the fact that I went from 63,000,000 Votes to 75,000,000 Votes, a record 12,000,000 Vote increase. Obama went down 3,000,000 Votes, and won. Rigged Election!!!”
