Donald Trump, ever the narcissist, still hasn’t figured out that his relationship with Fox News has always merely been a transactional one. The network propped him up because it thought that doing so was good for ratings. But now that he’s circling the drain, Fox is delivering mixed messages about him, and he can’t handle it.
Trump is particularly upset about the fact that Fox News is airing President Barack Obama’s rally speech in Orlando today. Trump posted this whiny tweet: “Now Fox News is playing Obama’s no crowd, fake speech for Biden, a man he could barely endorse because he couldn’t believe he won. Also, I PREPAID many Millions of Dollars in Taxes.”
This means that with just one week left in the election cycle, Donald Trump is sitting around watching Fox News and jealously rage tweeting about the broadcast choices the network is making. It’s clear that Trump isn’t even trying to win. That means we have an opportunity to focus 100% on voter turnout and really run up the score.
This comes after Trump posted this tweet this morning: “The biggest difference between now and 2016 is Fox News. They are a whole different deal.” That’s right, he really is resorting to blaming Fox News for the fact that he’s losing.
