Fox & Friends
OUCH! SARAH SANDERS TO JIM ACOSTA CLAIMING TRUMP WATCHES CNN: ‘I don’t think that’s true. I think your numbers would be higher.’
Jim Acosta: Trump watches something on FOX & Friends & tweets about it.
Sarah Sanders: I’m sure you’re disappointed that he’s not watching CNN.
Acosta: I’m sure he watches CNN
Sarah Sanders: I don’t think that’s true. I think your numbers would be higher.
From Daily Caller:
The White House press secretary took questions on the reauthorization of the FISA court, the imminent immigration bill, DACA and the Russia probe by the FBI.
However, Acosta was more interested in asking about the president’s cable news diet. Acosta asked Sanders about Trump watching Fox & Friends in the morning and tweeting about the subjects the show was covering.
Acosta asked if the habit was something that was “going on.”
The president watches something on “Fox & Friends” and then tweets about it… There have been folks out there who have said there’s a cause and effect. He watches something on “Fox & Friends” and then tweets about it. Did that happen this morning and does that go on?
Sanders responded with fire and fury.
I’m sure you’re disappointed he’s not watching CNN.
When Acosta snapped back that the president watches “a lot of CNN,” Sanders continued savaging the cable news network by hitting them where it really hurts, right in the ratings.
“I don’t think that’s true,” Sanders replied “Your numbers would be higher.”
There was an audible “Ooooh” in the press room.
“They’re actually better than they’ve been in a long time,”Acosta whined.
- JEALOUS? Erik Wemple of the Washington Post: “Kill Fox & Friends Before it’s Too Late”
- Wemple: President Trump takes his cues from the dreadful morning program on Fox News. Or miscues
- The reliance of the president on “Fox & Friends,” already well established, took on a bit more menace
JEALOUS LIBS! Well known fact President Trump likes to watch Fox & Friends, then he would shoot a tweet based on what he saw from the show, then liberal media go nuts! Repeat cycle of watch, shoot and media explode.
On July 10, WaPo writer Erik Wemple just can’t take it anymore he finally found a solution: ‘Kill Fox & Friends’. Wemple considers it a menace the reliance of president Trump on “Fox & Friends,” an already well established fact.
If Trump watches official fake news network CNN and official unhinged network MSNBC, no way this loony WaPo hack would complain.
Sean Hannity unleashed a tweetstorm on the Washington Post writer, calling him a disgrace.
From Washington Post :
Back when regular people watched “Fox & Friends,” it was bad enough to warrant killing the show. Back in those pre-Trump-presidency days, the program merely distorted the news in ways that reflected poorly on President Barack Obama.
President Trump takes his cues from the dreadful morning program on Fox News. Or miscues
The republic managed to survive the awfulness.
Again, “Fox & Friends” and Trump prove what a noxious combination they’ve become. The former churns out questionable information or mere pro-Trump cheerleading, and the latter amplifies it. Thus far, this symbiosis has clarified just what “Fox & Friends” is — a propaganda mill — and the type of media coverage the president fancies — straight-up sycophancy.
….Left to its own devices, “Fox & Friends” could do far more damage, unless it’s killed.
