Donald Trump has not been pleased with the media coverage of polls that show him down in multiple states. Even a recent Fox News poll had the President losing to leading Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, by double digits.
Trump angrily railed against his favorite network claiming that, something strange is going on there. Late night show Stephen Colbert delivered a hilarious warning to Fox last night, telling them that Trump could leave them for younger network.
Earlier this week, the President angrily tweeted, “Fox News Polls are always bad for me. They were against Crooked Hillary also. Something weird going on at Fox. Our polls show us leading in all 17 Swing States. For the record, I didn’t spend 30 hours with ABC News, but rather a tiny fraction of that. More Fake News.”
Joking about the tweet, Colbert alluded to Trump’s multiple failed marriages, “Ouch, Fox News, you pledged to be there for him for better or worse. You keep this up, he’s going to leave you for a younger network.”
The comedian then wondered where Trump would get his news from if he was to leave his favorite network. “If Trump can’t trust Fox, what’s he going to do? His only source of news will be Snapple caps,” said Colbert. “Flamingos turn pink from eating shrimp. Well that’s crazy, I am not pink and I eat tons of shrimp and flamingos. Fake cap,” the comedian continued doing an impersonation of Trump’s voice.
