Trump Goes Nuts on Fox News, Bret Baier After His Arizona “Audit” Fails
Joe Biden pulled off a coup last November by winning Arizona. The state had been reliably red for decades. And that win also devastated Donald Trump’s chances of winning the election.

And despite their best efforts, that audit essentially found nothing. An irate Trump lashed out at Fox News and anchor Bret Baier about the matter last night.
The former president said in a statement, “Fox News and other media outlets incorrectly side with the outdated and terrible Maricopa County Election Board to report no fraud found in the Presidential Election.

Then Trump went after Baier, “The same anchor at the desk the night Fox called Arizona for Joe Biden now wants you to believe there was no fraud. The anchor was Bret Baier.”
"They sided with the County and not the brave Arizona Senate who is fighting for the people of Arizona. The same anchor at the desk the night Fox called Arizona for Joe Biden now wants you to believe there was no fraud. The anchor was Bret Baier…

It’s likely that Trump was upset with Baier for something else that occurred on Friday. The Fox News anchor made Trump loyalist Josh Hawley admit that Joe Biden was the duly elected President of the United States.
