On Wednesday Trump tee’d off on Fox News over an appearance by Democratic National Committee spokesperson Xochitl Hinojosa.

“Just watched @FoxNews heavily promoting the Democrats through their DNC Communications Director, spewing out whatever she wanted with zero pushback by anchor, @SandraSmithFox. Terrible considering that Fox couldn’t even land a debate, the Dems give them NOTHING! @CNN & @MSNBC are all in for the Open Border Socialists (or beyond),” Trump wrote.

In a wide-ranging interview on the 2020 election with Fox News anchor Sandra Smith, Hinojosa took multiple swipes at the president, his field operation in 2016, and policies like border separations — but what seemed to provoke Trump was a reference to polling that shows him losing to Democratic front-runners in several battleground states.

“Fox hires “give Hillary the questions” @donnabrazile, Juan Williams and low ratings Shep Smith. HOPELESS & CLUELESS! They should go all the way LEFT and I will still find a way to Win – That’s what I do, Win. Too Bad!” Trump continued, “I don’t want to Win for myself, I only want to Win for the people. The New @FoxNews is letting millions of GREAT people down! We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!”

Both Smith and Williams have landed in hot water with Trump in the past for critical coverage of the escalating trade war with China, references to unflattering polling numbers and other perceived transgressions. Trump tweeted in early August that the network is “different from what they used to be.”

I love how Trump does not even pretend that Fox News is not his propaganda outlet.

He just calls them out publicly for not doing a better job of it, and then threatens to impact their business by urging his millions of followers to switch to another cable channel. 

Some of the Fox News folks went into a state of denial. 


Well, I guess this is good news for OAN.

    This post has been updated to clarify that the Trump campaign did not produce the video in question. It was produced by the Twitter account @som3thingwicked and was tweeted out by the president from his personal Twitter account.

      Trump, in the Rose Garden on Thursday, said he spoke with Polish President Andrzej Duda and offered his warmest wishes.
      His trip — slated to mark the 80th anniversary of the beginning of World War II — will be rescheduled, he said.
      The news came during a White House Rose Garden event about the US Space Command.
      Trump had already postponed the other leg of his European trip, to Copenhagen, after Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen called his interest in buying Greenland “absurd.”

      He should also consider that climate change may result in Mar a Lago being under water in the not-too-distant future, but he probably lacks the mental faculties to think that far ahead.

      LOL, if the hurricane was going to hit anywhere else he would not cancel his trip. Why doesn’t he go down there and ride out the hurricane like a little big man.

    OAN is Russain financed most likely. He only wants to win for the people made me sick. Hes been getting richer since he got in. We the people are gonna feel the burn in a next term if he wins. He knows it. His rich guys and gals billionaire club knows it tii. They have been laughing all the wY to the bank since 2016. My only consolation at this point is that if one day like david koch they bite the dust too.

      WikiP>The network launched with the intention of targeting a conservative-leaning audience with OAN President Charles Herring telling CPAC that, “Fox News has done a great job serving the center-right and independent audiences…But those who consider themselves liberal have a half dozen or more choices on TV each day from which to get their news.”

      The One America News Network uses both the acronyms OAN and OANN. On TV, it predominantly uses OAN whereas on Twitter it is known as OANN. In June 2019, OANN had approximately 150 staff.

      OANN is pro-Trump.

      In the thread, Gais reports, participants used code words for racial slurs — for example, “Alaskans” for the N-word when insulting blacks, or “Hawaiians” as a substitute for “Hebes” when insulting Jews.
      “Our Good Friend” referred to Adolf Hitler, while “Our Good Friend’s Son” referred to Donald Trump. The code names were outlined in an e-mail dated December 17, 2015.

      G. ur black now, eh?

    “He gets very angry when the network talks about the Democrats,”
    “That is, this is a person who demands total fealty, total loyalty, total allegiance, and when he doesn’t get it, he freaks out, and he lashes out,”
    “Now, what you’ve seen through the arc of the Trump presidency, it seems to me, is not that this is completely anomalous, but that it’s accelerating. All of his tendencies are getting worse. It will be interesting to see how Fox handles it.”

    When Trump loses Cavuto…

    Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto heavily criticized President Donald Trump over his complaints that Fox News isn’t sufficiently pro-Trump enough.

    Cavuto gave a long monologue to close out Thursday’s Your World with Neil Cavuto, hitting at Trump complaining to Twitter followers that “Fox isn’t working for us anymore!”

    “I think the president watches Fox,” Cavuto said. “I also think he’s getting sick of Fox, which is weird because I think he gets pretty fair coverage on Fox, but the president making clear that to fact-check him is to be all but dead to him and a legion of supporters, who let me know in no uncertain terms that I am either with him totally or a never-Trumper bully.”

    “First of all, Mr. President, we don’t work for you. I don’t work for you,” he continued. “My job is to cover you, not fun over you or rip you, just cover you. Call balls and strikes. Our job is to keep score, not settle scores. In my case, to report the economic numbers with their good and when they’re bad. But when the markets are soaring and with her tumbling. When trade talks looking they’re coming together and when they are look like falling apart. It’s called being fair and balanced, Mr. President.”

    “You’re entitled to your point of view, Mr. President, but you’re not entitled to your own set of facts,” Cavuto said.

    Trump is just prepping his followers for his own network after his loss in 2020. He is starting to wean them off Fox now.

    @gtconway3d
    What this describes is, quite literally, market manipulation that constitutes criminal violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934:

    Jennifer Taub, a professor at Vermont Law School who specializes in financial market regulation and white-collar crime, chimed in to say that Conway’s analysis of the president’s actions was “correct.”

    “There is no fathomable explanation for why the president said these things,” the former official said. “Letting Russia off the hook for bullying smaller countries and then blaming Obama for it? It’s directly out of the Putin playbook.”
