Donald Trump was busy whining on Twitter yesterday that 25% of Americans now want him impeached, raising questions about where he was getting that fake number from, as the major polls all say that the number is far higher. Even as Trump was throwing his tantrum, Fox News was busy releasing a poll which showed that 51% of Americans now want Trump impeached and removed.
At the time, Palmer Report asked how long it would take Donald Trump to hear about the new poll from his favorite TV network, and begin attacking Fox News accordingly. Today, Trump gave us our answer, in a bizarre meltdown that sounded a lot like he and his former favorite news network are getting a divorce.
Trump tweeted this: “From the day I announced I was running for President, I have NEVER had a good Fox News Poll. Whoever their Pollster is, they suck. But Fox News is also much different than it used to be in the good old days.” He then went on to smear several different Fox News personalities, while adding that the network “doesn’t deliver for US anymore.” It’s not clear if “US” was a reference to the United States, or if he was capitalizing the word “us.”
The truly surreal part is that Donald Trump ended his Fox News meltdown by blurting out “Oh well, I’m President!” Uh, okay, sure. But last we checked, Fox News isn’t being impeached, either. Trump is running out of allies as he circles the drain, and as he continues to resentful attack them in response, he’ll only give his allies more motivation to run away from him.
