Trump Lampoons ‘Terrible’ And ‘Clueless’ Fox News For ‘Not Working For Him Anymore’

President Donald Trump on Wednesday lashed out at Fox News, claiming that it has become too hospitable to Democrats and “isn’t working for us anymore,” telling his supporters “to start looking for a new News Outlet.”

In a trio of tweets, Trump went after a spokeswoman for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) appeared on “America’s Newsroom.” The president cited her interview, the employment of former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazille; Juan Williams, who is also a columnist for The Hill; and anchor Shepherd Smith to claim the network is biased against him.

“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!” Trump tweeted.

Trump slammed the network as “HOPELESS & CLUELESS” for hiring Brazille, Williams and Smith, each of whom have criticized the president at various times.

“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!”

Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but some of its news personalities quickly pushed back against Trump.

“Fox News isn’t supposed to work for you,” Fox senior political analyst Brit Hume replied on Twitter.

The president has favored Fox News over other outlets for much of his presidency, regularly tweeting out quotes from network personalities and sitting for interviews with Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Harris Faulkner, Chris Wallace, Maria Bartiromo and the hosts of “Fox & Friends.

But Trump appears to have soured on the network in recent months, particularly as its polls have shown the president trailing Democratic candidates in prospective 2020 matchups.
