President Donald Trump’s favorite news network not only cut into his speech on Monday, but it also fact-checked him on live television.
Trump on Monday attempted to tout his administration’s environmental record, but Fox News host Shepard Smith interrupted to say those policies have been “widely criticized by environmentalists and academics.”
The Fox News host cited a New York Times report that found that more than 80 environmental rules and regulations have been repealed and/or rolled back, including multiple regulations regarding drilling, air pollution and wildlife.
Though Trump has frequently touted the glowing coverage he’s received from Fox News hosts such as Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson and is known to be a fan of the “Fox & Friends” morning show, he has lately complained about some of the network’s other figures, including Smith.
Over the weekend, Trump griped that watching Fox News is “worse than watching low ratings Fake News CNN” and MSNBC, then later took at dig at Smith for hosting “by far their lowest rated show.”
As HuffPo points out Smith’s show is actually a ratings winner.
If this is the start of a trend and Fox News is starting to break with Donald Trump that is exceptionally bad news for the wannabe dictator.
Just like Adolph Hitler would have been lost without Joseph Goebbels so to will Trump be lost without his Fox News propaganda machine.
In short, he will not only lose in 2020, but he will lose “bigly.”
