Brian Kilmeade host on ‘Fox & Friends’ commented on Donald Trump’s recent attacks on Fox News when interviewing the president on his radio show on Thursday, Mediate reports.
The interview: “I know you were critical of Fox yesterday,” said Kilmeade. “So you were very upset.”
“I’m not happy with Fox,” Trump replied. “Look, Sean and Laura and Tucker have really been good — well, Tucker is a little tricky but that’s ok. But he’s been very good. Many of them, you guys in the morning, Ainsley, and Steve and you — I used to say you, you were a solid 6, maybe a 7. But you’re getting much better.”
“If Fox comes on and if somebody comes on and they’re critical of one thing about you. It never used to bother you like this.” Kilmeade noted. “Now yesterday I read those tweets … I thought to myself what’s bothering you about it, because our channel prides itself in diversity and getting everybody in so you don’t have to flip around.”
The president defended himself and suggested that he and his supporters “have to start looking for a new News Outlet” because “Fox isn’t working for us anymore”. He also accused CNN of being made up of all “Trump haters.” “MSNBC I think is worse. They fight to see who’s worse,” Trump added.
Trump’s tweets: On Wednesday morning, Trump took to Twitter after Fox News interviewed DNC communications director Xochitl Hinojosa “Just watched FoxNews heavily promoting the Democrats through their DNC Communications Director, spewing out whatever she wanted with zero pushback by anchor, @SandraSmithFox. Terrible considering that Fox couldn’t even land a debate, the Dems give them NOTHING!” he wrote. “Fox hires ‘give Hillary the questions’ @donnabrazile, Juan Williams and low ratings Shep Smith. HOPELESS & CLUELESS! They should go all the way LEFT and I will still find a way to Win.”
….I don’t want to Win for myself, I only want to Win for the people. The New @FoxNews is letting millions of GREAT people down! We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!
