Fox & Friends has been Trump’s go-to place for ego-stroking since before the beginning. If he’s lost them, he’s really lost.
And he’s losing them. Trump made some nasty cracks about Chris Wallace this morning:
Just watched Mike Wallace wannabe, Chris Wallace, on @FoxNews. I am now convinced that he is even worse than Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd of Meet the Press(please!), or the people over at Deface the Nation. What the hell is happening to @FoxNews. It’s a whole new ballgame over there!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 12, 2020
This evening, Jedediah Bila, weekend host of Fox & Friends, struck back:
Enough with the 3rd grade name-calling. Chris is doing his job. The news should not be any president’s friend, ally, or buddy. If it bothered you when Obama complained about Fox News, but you’re silent on this complete nonsense, then just stop. Seriously. Enough. https://t.co/uW1Dw275Or— Jedediah Bila (@JedediahBila) April 12, 2020
That’s right. A Fox & Friends host said flat out that Trump was behaving like a third grader. See a fuller story here: Fox News host hits back at Trump over Chris Wallace criticism: ‘Enough’
When Fox starts admitting what everyone has always known, the bovine byproduct is definitely on a fanward trajectory.
