President Trump’s ego is fragile, to say the least, and it’s taken quite a beating over the last couple of days. Not only has he faced criticism for not responding soon enough to the deaths of four U.S. Green Berets in Niger, but he’s also been raked over the coals for callously saying to the widow of one of those soldiers that her late husband “knew what he signed up for.”
While much of the country has been attacking the president, there is one place where he can turn for solace: Fox News. The network’s hosts, for the most part, can be counted on to offer up some praise for Trump, and Wednesday’s episode of The Daily Briefing was no different.
On Wednesday, host Dana Perino, and one of the show’s guests, author Brad Thor, discussed the progress that’s been made in the Middle East, specifically in Iraq, over the last few days. Perino went on to say that Trump deserves congratulations for the work that’s been done, and Thor even went so far as to say that “ISIS is dead” thanks to President Trump.
Trump, of course, jumped on the compliments and claimed that he is “working hard!”
‘@DanaPerino & @BradThor,
‘Thank you so much for the wonderful compliment. Working hard! #MAGA’
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 18, 2017
Perino and Thor may be thanking Trump, but his followers were not quite as impressed. Many people commented and let him know that they haven’t forgotten the way he disrespected the fallen Green Berets, and plenty of others couldn’t help but question how hard he’s actually working.
