Fox Host Has Bad News For Donald Trump - You're The Real Problem

President Trump’s complaints about so-called “fake news” drew a sharp rebuke on Tuesday from Fox News, the right-leaning network known for supporting Republican politicians, The Hill reported.

“Mr. President, it’s not the fake news media that’s your problem. It’s you,” Fox host Neil Cavuto declared. “It’s not just your tweeting. It’s your scapegoating. It’s your refusal to see that sometimes you’re the one who’s feeding your own beast and acting beastly with your own guys. Look at the critiques you’re now hearing from usually friendly and supportive allies as sort of like an intervention, because firing off these angry missives and tweets risks your political discussion.”

Cavuto was responding to Trump’s Twitter storm early Tuesday morning, when he fired back at reporters who slammed his tweeting habit. “The FAKE MSM is working so hard trying to get me not to use Social Media,” the president wrote. “They hate that I can get the honest and unfiltered message out. … Sorry folks, but if I would have relied on the Fake News of CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, washpost or nytimes, I would have had ZERO chance winning WH.”

No White House aide screens Trump’s tweets before he posts them, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders revealed during a media briefing on Monday. “I think social media for the president is extremely important,” she said. “It gives him the ability to speak directly to the people without the bias of the media filtering those types of communications.”

Trump’s political opponents have ridiculed his use of Twitter since early in the 2016 campaign. The criticism soared last weekend, when the president responded to terrorist attacks in London by lashing out at the city’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, for saying there was “no reason for alarm.” News footage of the mayor’s press conference showed he was not downplaying the terrorist threat. He was advising Londoners to not worry about the city’s enhanced police presence following the attacks. Trump refused to acknowledged that he misrepresented Khan’s comments.

The president also seized on the violence in the United Kingdom to repeat his arguments for a temporary “travel ban” targeting people from predominantly Muslim countries. The Supreme Court will soon rule on Trump’s executive order calling for the ban, which lower federal courts determined is unconstitutional because it violates the Constitution’s guarantee of religious freedom.

“The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court & seek much tougher version,” Trump tweeted, referring to the fact that he signed two slightly different anti-immigration executive orders, both of which judges have temporarily blocked. Legal experts pointed out that by calling the order a “travel ban,” the president may have undermined the administration’s Supreme Court case.

Fox News reported that Trump created additional controversy Tuesday morning when he tweeted about allegations that the Qatari government finances terrorists. “During my recent trip to the Middle East I stated that there can no longer be funding of Radical Ideology,” he wrote. “Leaders pointed to Qatar - look!” The president recently declared that Qatar, the site of a large U.S. military base, is an American ally.
