Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning to go after a cable news analyst. He retweeted a call for Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano to lose his job. The original tweet came from a Trump fan who only calls himself Howard H:
When you look at the continuous incorrect statements by Napolitano over the past 2 years, it is fair to ask FNC why they allow him to have national air time. The man has been significantly wrong on at least 8 major occasions. Unacceptable! Take him off the air!

HillReporter.com previously reported on Trump’s feud with Andrew Napolitano. Trump accused the analyst of asking for a seat on the United States Supreme Court, as well as a pardon for a friend. Napolitano went on Fox News and informed the world that these allegations were indeed false. That is what escalated the animosity between the two men.
It is most curious how Trump seems to get into so many arguments with television personalities. After all, he has a country to run, and all they do is talk on television. Considering the fact that he is quite literally the most powerful man in the world, what cable news hosts have to say about him really isn’t all that important.
Even more curious is the fact that Napolitano is on Fox News. This is a network that is objectively the most friendly to Trump and his administration out of all of them. In fact, most of the primetime personalities such as Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, and Jeannine Pirro very seldom criticize Trump for any reason and will often take anyone who dares to do so to task in the most scathing ways imaginable.
