Honestly, they deserve it…
President Donald Trump has just attacked his favorite news network, Fox News, for their programming choice on Sunday.
Fox has scheduled a town hall with South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg and the president is not thrilled about the idea.
“Hard to believe that @FoxNews is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him. Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems.
“They got dumped from the Democrats boring debates, and they just want in. They forgot the people who got them there.
“Chris Wallace said, ‘I actually think, whether you like his opinions or not, that Mayor Pete has a lot of substance…fascinating biography.’
“Gee, he never speaks well of me – I like Mike Wallace better…and Alfred E. Newman will never be President!” he said.
The president’s attack on Fox News Channel came hours after he went after Wallace, the host of “Fox News Sunday” in a veiled attack.
It came after Wallace took aim at the president for his position on Iran during his “Fox News Sunday” show on Sunday.
“Over the last week, the president has taken a number of measures,” Wallace said to Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Pat Toomey.
“He’s ordered a carrier strike group to the Persian Gulf, we’re sending long range bombers there, the Pentagon has at least considered a proposal to send 120,000 US troops to the Middle East,” he said.
“Really, two questions, one, do you understand what’s going on with U.S. policy in Iran,” he said. “and how do you feel about, if you do understand it, what the president’s policy is?”
“I think I do, Chris,” Toomey said. “I took the time to go down to the secure briefing room and read the intelligence reports last week, I’m looking forward to the full briefing to all senators on Tuesday on the intelligence we have.
“I can’t comment on that, but let me simply say this. If you read a report about a potentially imminent threat to American personnel and American assets, originating from the Iranian regime, I think you should take that report very seriously,” he said.
But President Trump did not take Wallace’s opinion, which was framed in the form of a question, the same way.
“For all of the Fake News Sunday Political Shows, whose bias & dishonesty is greater than ever seen in our Country before, please inform your viewers that our Economy is setting records, with more people employed today than at any time in U.S. history.
“Our Military, which was a depleted disaster, will soon be stronger than ever before, our Vets are finally being taken care of and now have Choice, our Courts will have 145 great new Judges, and 2 Supreme Court Justices, got rid of the disastrous Individual Mandate & will protect Pre-Existing Conditions.
“Drug prices down for first time in 51 years (& soon will drop much further), Right to Try, protecting your 2nd Amendment, big Tax & Reg Cuts, 3.2 GDP, Strong Foreign Policy, & much much more that nobody else would have been able to do. Our Country is doing GREAT!”
