Trump Goes In On Fox News – Says There’s ‘Garbage Littered All Over Network’

I wonder what the network is going to do now that they've been called out

OPINION: President Trump has called out Fox News in the past for reporting polls that were not in his favor, but on Thursday he went even harder on the network. He trashed Fox, saying that they weren’t doing anything to help him get reelected.

Trump tweeted out his frustration before he left for Michigan and a tour of a Ford manufacturing plant:

Many will disagree, but Fox News is doing nothing to help Republicans, and me, get reelected on November 3rd. Sure, there are some truly GREAT people on Fox, but you also have some real “garbage” littered all over the network, people like Dummy Juan Williams, Schumerite Chris HahnRichard GoodsteinDonna BrazileNiel Cavuto [sic], and many others. They repeat the worst of the Democrat speaking points, and lies. All of the good is totally nullified, and more. Net Result = BAD! CNN & MSDNC are all in for the Do Nothing Democrats! Fox WAS Great!

Just a little earlier this week, Trump complained, “Fox News is no longer the same,” because “you have more anti-Trump people, by far than ever before.”

This was probably directed at Fox anchor Neil Cavuto. He drew a great deal of attention after calling out the president for announcing that he’s taking hydroxychloroquine, a drug not approved for the public by the Food and Drug Administration. The only thing that agency has done is to warn those using it to try to make sure they have been prescribed the medicine or taking it in a clinical trial where they can be monitored.
