    Fox News medical contributor Dr. Nicole Saphier said Monday she’s dismayed by people using the tragic death of Colin Powell to say the vaccines don’t work. Saphier noted how people “all over social media” are “trying to use this anecdotal report” to raise questions, but she laid out the facts of the case. Powell passed away at 84 years old from covid-19. He was fully vaccinated, but as Saphier noted, he was being treated for multiple myeloma, blood cancer, meaning he was immunocompromised. She emphasized that “we are still in the midst of a pandemic” and that it’s important for people to keep taking precautions “to protect the vulnerable.” “We never expected it to get us to zero cases, but it does decreases the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death, and that’s why we recommend the flu shot, and the covid vaccine going to be the same.” Towards the end of the interview, Saphier more directly stated, “It’s very upsetting to see that people [are] taking Colin Powell’s death a using it as ‘the vaccine didn’t work.’ This is...
    Former President Donald Trump’s interview with Greg Gutfeld was not a ratings draw for Fox News. Trump sat down with Gutfeld for an interview that aired in the 11 p.m. hour Wednesday night. The pair had a friendly interview, with Gutfeld noting that he was once critical of Trump (since Trump was elected president, Gutfeld has served as one of his most loyal boosters at Fox News). While Gutfeld! — and every Fox News program for that matter — demolished the CNN and MSNBC competition on Wednesday night, the 11 p.m. show lost to a fleet of Fox’s other shows. Sean Hannity had the highest rated show in cable news, drawing 3.07 million total viewers and 468,000 in the advertiser-coveted A25-54 demo. Tucker Carlson placed second, with 2.97 million viewers overall and 471,000 in the demo. Gutfeld’s interview with Trump placed 6th in all of cable news — behind Hannity, Carlson, Laura Ingraham, The Five and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow — drawing 2.11 million total viewers and 392,000 in the demo. Here is a full breakdown of Wednesday’s cable news...
    Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington went on the attack against Fox News after finding that they edited former President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated election claims out of an interview he gave to the network. Trump gave an interview to Fox’s Dan Bongino on Saturday night, where he declared a false victory, railed against Democrats, went into a bizarre hypothetical, and generally stormed through a myriad of other topics. As Trump claimed at one point that he was being politically persecuted by prosecutors in New York, he switched gears by once again claiming the 2020 election was “fake” and corrupted by voter fraud. Here’s a transcript from that segment of the interview, note Trump’s bolded, false claims. It’s a disgrace what’s happening, and I don’t think the country’s gonna stand for much longer, they are disgusted. You have a fake election, you have an election with voter abuse and voter fraud like nobody’s ever seen before, and based on that, and based on what happened, they are destroying our country, whether its at the border, whether its on crime, and plenty of...
    Former President Donald Trump called into Fox News on Wednesday night and ended up attacking Fox News’ own Chris Wallace. Trump spoke with Sean Hannity about President Joe Biden’s summit with Vladimir Putin. Hannity brought up Hunter Biden and Burisma at one point as he talked about Ukraine. Trump hit the younger Biden as well and brought up one moment during the 2020 presidential debates where things got particularly heated. The former president accused Wallace of trying to “protect” Biden on a question about his son, and he told Hannity, “Chris Wallace protected him because he couldn’t answer the question. So Chris Wallace protected him, good old Chris Wallace. He’ll never be Mike.” He went on to say “we no longer have a fair and free press.” Hannity did not react to the comments about Wallace, but responded, “I said in 2007, sir — I wish I came up with ‘fake news’ — but I did say journalism in America is dead, and I don’t think I was wrong. I think I probably understated it.” Trump has repeatedly attacked Wallace over that...
    Lawrence O’Donnell’s interview with President Joe Biden on MSNBC, followed by a town hall with key members of the Biden administration’s coronavirus response team, topped CNN’s Don Lemon in total viewers at 10 p.m., but fell behind in the key demo, while Fox News’ Laura Ingraham swept both shows in Wednesday’s ratings. Vaccinating America, with Dr. Anthony Fauci, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra, and Surgeon General Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, notched 1.86 million total viewers, and 218,000 in the valuable demographic of viewers age 25-54, according to data from Nielsen. The Ingraham Angle was first at 10 p.m.,, with 2.34 million total viewers, and 409,000 in the demo. The first hour of CNN Tonight with Don Lemon was third in total viewers for the hour, with 1.01 million, and second in the demo, with 274,000. Tucker Carlson Tonight was the most-watched on Wednesday, with 3.23 million total viewers, and 532,000 in the demo. The Five was second in total viewers, with 2.88 million, and fourth in the demo — a tie with Special Report — with 372,000....
    LOS ANGELES -- Caitlyn Jenner, a Republican whose campaign for California governor has elicited angry reaction from some members of the LGBTQ community, said Wednesday that "I move on" when it comes to her critics.Her comment came during a one-on-one interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, which marked some of her first words in public since announcing her candidacy for the expected recall election that could remove Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.In their wide-ranging chat, Jenner used the friendly platform of Hannity's stage to stake out positions on issues from immigration to forest management. She said she would reopen the state immediately after more than a year of pandemic restrictions, opposed efforts to defund police departments and suggested that funds from the state's troubled high-speed rail project should be channeled into desalination plants to provide more water in the drought-prone state.RELATED: Caitlyn Jenner releases 1st ad in bid to recall Gov.

    Former President Trump sat down with Judge Jeanine Pirro for an exclusive interview that will air on Fox News’ ‘Justice with Judge Jeanine’ Saturday at 9 p.m.  In the interview, Trump says that he will probably visit the southern border over the next few weeks. Last week Trump accused Biden of causing "death and human tragedy" by undoing some of his border policies, which Biden had deemed inhumane. "We proudly handed the Biden Administration the most secure border in history," the statement reads. " All they had to do was keep this smooth-running system on autopilot.  Instead, in the span of a just few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster. They are in way over their heads and taking on water fast." Republicans have been urging President Biden to visit the border to experience firsthand the overwhelmed facilities amid a border surge.

    New York : The President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele, this week denied an interview to the Mexican-American Univision journalist Jorge Ramos, and chose to answer questions to Tucker Carlson Fox News anchor and supporter of former US President Donald Trump. “Tell a certain Jorge, who was requesting an interview, that I already gave it to Tucker Carlson,” the president said on his Twitter account. Tell a certain Jorge, who was asking for an interview, that I already gave it to him. @TuckerCarlson. https://t.co/QfP62IA71w – ???????? (@nayibbukele) March 16, 2021 Initially, the location of Ramos occurred in the middle of an interview with the Vice President of El Salvador, Félix Ulloa. Ulloa answered questions to Ramos about the alleged abuses of power attributed to Bukele and the opinion of some that he is becoming the new Latin American dictator. “I believe that it is a biased reading, quite subjective and that this man has been criticizing for some time. I have invited him to come to the country, to find out directly, to make an on-site visit so that...
              Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff accused incumbent Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) of campaigning with a Ku Klux Klan (KKK) member, ignoring her remarks to the contrary. He made his accusations during an impromptu interview with Fox News on Wednesday. Ossoff’s allegation was based on a viral photo of Loeffler with a former KKK leader, Chester Doles, taken earlier this month. “We have two United States Senators in Georgia who have blatantly used their offices to enrich themselves. This is beyond partisanship,” stated Ossoff. “Here’s the bottom line: Kelly Loeffler has been campaigning with a klansman. Kelly Loeffler has been campaigning with a klansman. She is stooping to these vicious personal attacks to distract from the fact that she’s been campaigning with a former member of the Ku Klux Klan.” Loeffler’s campaign spokesperson Stephen Lawson previously disavowed any connection between Loeffler and Doles and explained the context of the photo. “Kelly had no idea who that was, and if she had she would have kicked him out [of the event] immediately because we condemn in the most...
    ROBERTO SCHMIDT / AFP / Getty Images President Donald Trump continued attacking Fox News on Wednesday, saying that it’s “almost as bad” as watching CNN. Trump repeatedly attacked Fox News throughout the election, and erupted after some reporters and pundits on the network not only acknowledged that he lost, but that there’s no evidence of his wild election conspiracies. There are many pro-Trump hosts on Fox News that the president often speaks fondly about, but on Wednesday he tweeted, “Watching @FoxNews is almost as bad as watching Fake News @CNN. New alternatives are developing!” Watching @FoxNews is almost as bad as watching Fake News @CNN. New alternatives are developing! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 30, 2020 Given his follow-up tweets, it’s likely Trump was set off by an interview on Your World with Neil Cavuto with Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan. The president has attacked top Republicans in Georgia because they’re not doing enough to help his effort to overturn the election. Governor Brian Kemp, Duncan, and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger have all been the target...
    Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo was tricked into an on-air interview with an animal activist posing as the CEO of Smithfield Foods, a meat processing company, reports Mediaite. We have an important correction to make, the Mornings With Maria host said at the end of Wednesday’s show. It appears we have been punked. Earlier in the program, I interviewed someone claiming to be the CEO of Smithfield Foods, Dennis Organ. We’ve since learned that that was not Dennis Organ, but an imposter making false claims about the company. He is someone who has absolutely no relation to Smithfield Foods. We want to apologize to Dennis Organ, Smithfield Foods, and to our audience for making this mistake. We will of course be more vigilant. Matt Johnson of Direct Action Everywhere appeared on the show as Organ and at one point asserted that the meat industry could be effectively bringing on the next pandemic, with CDC data showing that three of four infectious diseases come from animals and the conditions inside of our farms can sometimes be petri dishes for new diseases. The group...
    Brad Parscale, the Trump campaign manager who was cast away from the campaign and later arrested at his home in Florida after his wife called the police, spoke out for the first time on Tuesday night in a lengthy interview with Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum. MacCallum asked about the incident on September 28, just weeks for the presidential election, in which Parscale’s wife called the police to their home in Fort Lauderdale. A drunken Parscale had allegedly threatened suicide, and his wife Candice said she fled their home after he cocked a handgun. Police and a SWAT team responded to the home, and Brad was caught on video being tackled and arrested. An officer observed bruises and cuts on Candice, and wrote in a report that she claimed Brad had physically abused her. She later recanted that allegation, claiming her comments had been misconstrued. “Well the good thing is, my wife and I are in a much better place now,” Parscale said. “My family’s in a great place.” Parscale went on to speak about the distress caused by...
    Do you believe in magic? Maria Bartiromo seems to. During her interview with President Donald Trump on Sunday, the Fox News and Fox Business anchor promoted a Federalist article titled “5 More Ways Joe Biden Magically Outperformed Election Norms.” “These are some of the impossible statistics that we have found,” Bartiromo said — vouching for the piece’s veracity. The anchor rattled off the items she — and the column’s author, J.B. Shurk — deemed to be unexplainable anomalies. None of the five points are even remotely indicative of any type of sorcery. One example, “Biden overcame Trump’s commanding primary vote,” would be comical if it weren’t so pathetic. The writer — and, by extension, Bartiromo — argued that because Trump received 94 percent of the vote in the Republican primary (a race in which he faced no opposition), his success should have carried over to the general election. This is more or less akin to suggesting the results of a preseason NFL contest should factor into the final score of the Super Bowl. But no. Apparently Joe Biden’s victory cannot be...
    Fox News anchor Eric Shawn issued a blistering reality check to President Donald Trump for pushing a series of baseless claims of electoral fraud on the network just hours before. Trump gave his first televised interview after the election to Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, where he attacked his own Republican allies, floated countless conspiracy theories, and continued to push the false claim that the 2020 election was “fake.” Instead of demanding proof of the massively corrupt conspiracy that Trump was alleging, Bartiromo mostly took his side, agreeing with his arguments and declining to challenge his claims. Shawn hosted America’s News Headquarters later in the day, and kicked off a segment by dissecting Trump’s claims of “massive voter fraud” while noting that “his campaign has failed to prove any of this in court.” “In fact,” Shawn continued, “your government, election officials, experts and others — many of them Republican, including Trump appointed officials — say that the president’s claims are false and unsubstantiated.” Shawn brought in Axios reporter Hans Nichols to dissect each of Trump’s statements from the lengthy interview. The...
    New York (CNN Business)President Donald Trump on Sunday spoke with Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo -- his first TV interview since the election. The conversation was riddled with lies and conspiracy theories."This election was a fraud; it was a rigged election." Trump told Bartiromo. In response, the Fox anchor reflected the president's anger, saying, "This is disgusting and we cannot allow America's election to be corrupted."The interview highlighted that Trump is "unable or unwilling to accept reality," CNN's Chief Media Correspondent Brian Stelter said on "Reliable Sources" Sunday. In addition to Trump's unwillingness to acknowledge Joe Biden won the election, Bartioromo's unchallenged acceptance of Trump's false narrative also presents a danger to American democracy, said CNN's Senior Media Reporter Oliver Darcy on "Reliable Sources.""News organizations — and I think Fox claims to be one — have a responsibility," Darcy said.

Parscale said on Twitter the interview is slated to occur next Friday. “Happy Friday. Going on Fox News next week for a 30 minute special with Martha MacCallum.

    A Fox News meteorologist whose elderly in-laws died from COVID-19 has blasted Governor Cuomo for releasing a book praising his own leadership efforts amid the pandemic, in an interview with DailyMailTV.  Senior weather forecaster Janice Dean accused Cuomo of being responsible for her husband's parents' deaths in March after they contracted the virus at two separate nursing homes in New York.   While Cuomo was praised by some for his briefings in the early days of the pandemic, he has also been criticized heavily for some of his policies that led to a high number of deaths at aged care facilities.    Scroll down for video  Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean, whose elderly in-laws died from the virus after contracting the disease at New York nursing homes, blasted Cuomo in an interview with DailyMailTV Dean's mother-in-law Dolores Newman (pictured) died a few days after she tested positive at  nursing home earlier this year.

    In a lighthearted moment, Fox News host Chris Wallace teased his upcoming interview with rap and film star Ice Cube by telling Sandra Smith that he and “Cube” are now “besties.” On Friday’s edition of America’s Newsroom, Smith reacted with surprise when she asked Wallace to talk about this week’s episode of Fox News Sunday. “This Sunday, Fox News Sunday, your guests, I hear, are Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the RNC and… Ice Cube, Chris?” Smith said. “Tell us about it.” With a laugh, Wallace said “I suspect you’re talking more about Ice cube than Ronna McDaniel, we’ll also have a representative of the Biden campaign.” “Yeah, Ice Cube, the famous rapper, N.W.A, straight outta Compton,” Wallace continued. “He came out with a contract with Black America in the summer. Met with Jared Kushner and kind of endorsed the Trump Platinum Plan. Took tremendous backlash from the Black Community. We have a very interesting conversation with Cube.” Wallace added “I now just call him ‘Cube’ because we are besties. And you’ll be interested to hear it. It’s Chris and...
    President Donald Trump has said that he is no longer taking steroids, but could not confirm that he has tested negative for coronavirus since becoming infected last week. 'I feel really, really strong,' Trump said in the interview with Fox News contributor Dr. Marc Siegel, which was pre-taped but aired on Friday night on Tucker Carlson Tonight.  The opening segment of the interview was framed as a kind of mock medical exam, with Siegel, who is a practicing physician, asking Trump about his 'chief complaint.' 'I feel really good, I feel very strong,' Trump replied.  Trump went on to say that he was no longer taking the powerful steroid Dexamethasone, which some medical experts had warned can have psychological side effects including confusion and aggression.  'I tolerated it very well, I don't take it anymore,' Trump said of the steroid.

    Igor Derysh October 5, 2020 3:13PM (UTC) President Donald Trump did not disclose that he had already tested positive for COVID-19 and was awaiting a second test when he was interviewed by Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday, according to a new report. Trump received a positive result from a rapid test on Thursday evening before his Fox News interview, The Wall Street Journal reported. The president mentioned that his top aide, Hope Hicks, had tested positive for COVID-19 — but not that he was awaiting the results of a second test to confirm the preliminary result. : "I'll get my test back either tonight or tomorrow morning," Trump told Hannity hours before confirming on Twitter that he and first lady Melania Trump had both tested positive for the disease. Trump appears to have attempted to keep Hicks and other aides' positive results under wraps, as well.  "Don't tell anyone," Trump told an adviser after their own positive test, according to the report. : Campaign manager Bill Stepien, who worked closely with Trump and Hicks on debate preparations, was not...
    It wasn’t quite the proverbial unstoppable force versus the immovable object, but Bob Woodward’s first appearance on Fox News since publishing the new White House tell-all Rage was a clash of some inside-the-beltway titans as Dana Perino tried to score points in a 15 round battle that had no clear winner. The former White House press secretary under President George W. Bush seemed to try to frame Woodward purely as someone fiercely anti-Trump, to which the famed journalists paid zero heed and instead stayed on message and showing his vast experience of television hits designed to promote his latest book. An early version of the headline for this post was “Dana Perino Repeatedly Cuts Off Bob Woodward While He’s Bashing Trump in Tense Fox News Interview.” Still, it was Woodward’s seeming astonishment that Perino took issue with Woodward’s conclusion that Trump is not up for the job as president. “Have you been able to read the book, Dana,” Woodward said to Perino, surprised that she would seemingly defend President Trump. “Look, it’s a nightmare, working for Trump,” Woodward pushed...
     Late-night hosts Seth Meyers and Jimmy Fallon roasted President Donald Trump for “crawling back” to the safety of Fox News after his “nightmare” interview with Axios’ Jonathan Swan on Monday night. Meyers mocked Trump’s interview with Swan — focusing on the charts the president brought with him — before ripping him for running “back to safe ground.” “You just knew this interview was going to be insane from the get-go, even before Trump sat down when he walked into the room holding a stack of papers,” the host said of the Axios sit down. “You knew it was going to be batsh*t crazy.” He then addressed the chart Trump used to show the U.S. death toll and mocked it for being the “fakest-looking chart I’ve ever seen.” “It’s just four random bars with different colors. Is this the printer test sheet?” Meyers added. “This looks like a prop they’d give a fourth-grader playing a businessman in a school play.” “Trump was apparently so embarrassed by this rare venture outside the right-wing media bubble that after the disastrous Axios interview aired, he immediately rushed...
    As Roger Ailes was on his death bed his wife Elizabeth's last words to him were 'I forgive you' and though he couldn't respond, his eyes filled with tears.  The final moments between the controversial Fox News founder and his wife prior to his death in May 2017 at the age of 77 are featured in a new film on Ailes' life entitled Man in the Arena. The film, narrated by Ailes and his friend Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight, glorifies the television executive's life and follows his career from ditch-digging to TV to political consulting.  The movie praises him as the driving force behind getting Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush elected into the White House.  However, the film takes the defense on the 2016 scandal where he was accused of sexual assault and harassment by 23 women. In the movie Elizabeth Ailes defends her late husband and acknowledges she knew of an affair. 'He was sorrowful and sought forgiveness. Those were dark days,' she said according to Newsweek. As Roger Ailes was on his death bed his...

    President Trump went toe-to-toe with Fox News host Chris Wallace in a wide-ranging interview that aired Sunday and tackled the coronavirus, the 2020 race, challenger Joe Biden’s mental capacity and more. The often-heated sit-down played out, appropriately enough, outside the White House — at the president’s request— on a day that saw both Trump and Wallace remark on the summer swelter. “I want you to sweat,” Trump cracked to Wallace at one point during the interview. “Well, we both are,” Wallace replied. These are the highlights of the chat with the commander in chief: On COVID-19 For much of the United States, the coronavirus pandemic has now been reduced to “burning embers,” Trump said, contending that new cases of the contagion are surging only because of the nation’s abundance of testing. Wallace pointed out that new daily cases had surged from a previous peak of 36,000 in April to more than 75,000 by the end of last Thursday amid a spike of infections in Southern states. “Chris, that’s because we have great testing, because we have the best testing in...

NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association president Ed Mullins was spotted at least twice in one week giving on-air interviews with a QAnon-emblazoned mug over his shoulder.  QAnon is known for advocating a far-right conspiracy theory alleging a secret, 'deep state' plot against President Trump and his supporters. There has yet to be any conclusive proof of these claims, initially made by an anonymous poster called Q on the 4chan website.   NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association union president Ed Mullins gave two TV interviews in which a QAnon mug could be seen in the background over his left shoulder The Qanon mug's interview appearance was spotted and shared online by a Twitter user Friday RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Portland mayor demands Trump REMOVE his 'personal army' of...

    Eric W. Dolan July 18, 2020 7:00AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Raw Story President Donald Trump interrupted an interview with Chris Wallace on Friday, after the Fox News host told him that former Vice President Joe Biden does not want to "defund" police departments. The incident occurred as the two were discussing a rise in crime. : "It's because they want to defund the police — and Biden wants to defund the police," Trump said. "Sir, he does not," Wallace interjected. "Look, he signed a charter with Bernie Sanders," Trump began. "And it says nothing about defunding the police," Wallace insisted. : "Oh really? It says abolish. It says — let's go. Get me the charter, please," Trump said, interrupting the interview. Wallace said that Trump had an aide retrieve the charter in question. But the president failed to find language about defunding the police after reading through it.

    (CNN)The head of the New York Police Department's second-largest police union gave a television interview Friday afternoon while sitting in front of a mug emblazoned with QAnon imagery and slogans. The mug was positioned behind Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, during a roughly seven-minute interview on the Fox News show "Your World with Neil Cavuto." Followers of the QAnon conspiracy believe there is a "deep state" within the US government that is controlled by a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles. According to the conspiracy, the cabal is largely run by Democratic politicians and liberal celebrities -- and President Donald Trump is trying to take them down. The baseless theory has been linked to several violent incidents. Born on the dark fringes of the internet, QAnon is now infiltrating mainstream American life and politicsThe mug behind Mullins featured the word "QANON" and the hashtag #WWG1WGA, which stands for "where we go one, we go all," a popular slogan among QAnon supporters.

    Fox News’ Hannity scored the best ratings in cable news on Thursday, thanks to a call-in interview with President Donald Trump. That helped the network handily win primetime and take first in total day audience as well. According to Nielsen Media Research, Fox News topped its CNN and MSNBC rivals in the 6:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. daypart in both total viewers and those in the coveted 25 – 54 age demographic.

At 4:00 p.m., the ongoing ratings battle stayed true to form, as MSNBC’s Deadline: White House continued its success, taking the time-slot with 2.20 million overall viewers. That outdistanced Fox News’ Your World with Neil Cavuto, which pulled in 1.69 million, and CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper, which trailed with 1.36 million total viewers. Among A25 – 54 viewers, however, CNN took first during the hour with 287,000, edging out Fox’s 270,000 and MSNBC’s 250,000. In primetime, Fox soared to four million in...
    President Donald Trump’s fitness to hold office was called into question after the broadcasting on Thursday evening of a town hall that had been pre-recorded with Fox News personality Sean Hannity. Trump falsely claimed there would not be any COVID-19 cases were it not for testing to detect the pandemic. Trump also predicted Joe Biden would win the 2020 presidential race and bragged about being “the most perfect person.” And Trump flopped after being asked his priorities for a second term. Here’s some of what people were saying about the interview: Again, someone close to the president should let him know that he cant lose the election if he drops out of the race. Think about it — he could retire undefeated! A perfect 1-0 record! https://t.co/Zu3ynRQeLs — Kevin M.

    President Donald Trump has, on several occasions, complained about Fox News. Just last night he publicly grumbled about network coverage over a throwaway line by correspondent Doug McKelway about the border wall. In his interview with CBN’s David Brody Monday, the president continued going after Fox and accused the network of trying to be too “politically correct.” JUST RELEASED: @realDonaldTrump lowers the boom on Fox News: tells me, “I’m not happy with Fox at all…My base hates what Fox News is doing…Fox News wants to be politically correct all of a sudden…Roger Ailes would never have let this happen.” Watch here! @POTUS @WhiteHouse pic.twitter.com/0XMVCL1dZo — David Brody (@DavidBrodyCBN) June 23, 2020 “I don’t like what they’re doing at Fox News,” Trump said. “They have people on that network that are horrible, vicious. You have people that work for Schumer, you have people who are unbelievably against us and viciously and they spew lies… I’m not happy with Fox.” He touted the strength of his base and claimed that they too “hate what Fox News is doing.” The president...
