There are certain Fox News hosts – particularly in the morning and evening – who have built their audiences entirely around the premise that Donald Trump is God. Those hosts will ride Trump all the way to the bottom. But some of the daytime and weekend Fox News hosts don’t have Trump centric audiences to begin with, and so as Trump becomes more toxically unpopular, they’re turning against him accordingly.
Considering how dependent Donald Trump’s fading reelection hopes are on the pro-Trump propaganda that Fox News pumps out, it’s not surprising to see that he’s losing his mind over how Fox is continuing to incrementally turn against him. Trump posted this surreal tweet today accordingly:
Many will disagree, but Fox News is doing nothing to help Republicans, and me, get re-elected 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 Hahn, Richard Goodstein, Donna Brazile, Niel Cavuto, 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!
The reality is that Fox News hosts are each going to go where their respective audiences want them to go, and not where Donald Trump wants them to go. The more unpopular Trump becomes, the less Fox will do to prop him up. Trump is right to worry about this. Also, Trump would do well to learn how to spell the names of the Fox hosts he’s bashing. It’s “Neil Cavuto” not “Niel Cavuto.”
