Donald Trump has a long road ahead of him leading up to the 2020 presidential elections. He’ll have an all-new opponent to fearmonger around, new unrehearsed lies to tell, and about a hundred different scandals to explain away.
On Wednesday, the Democratic National Committee announced that it would not allow Fox News to host a primary debate between Democratic candidates. The news came following reports of a Fox News cover-up of information on the illegal payoffs to Trump’s former mistress, Stephanie Clifford (aka Stormy Daniels), during the 2016 elections.
The head of Fox News’ website, Ken LaCorte, reportedly told writer Diana Falzone that the “news” organization would be shuttering a story regarding those payoffs. Falzone says she was told:
‘Good reporting, kiddo. But Rupert [Murdoch] wants Donald Trump to win. So just let it go.’
It’s not a surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention that Fox News has become little more than a propaganda arm of the White House. After Trump’s former lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen testified in front of Congress about those illegal payoffs, Trump sat for an interview with Fox News star Sean Hannity, who corroborated Trump’s defenses using conversations he had with their mutual attorney. The interview constituted an unprecedented violation of journalistic standards, if Fox News ever had any.
Trump did so poorly during debates against political rival Hillary Clinton in 2016 that it’s no wonder he’s looking forward to an excuse not to debate any of the more intelligent and experienced candidates running for the presidency on the left. He’ll likely make plenty enough of a fool of himself during rallies, anyway.
Twitter was not supportive of Trump’s complaints. Read some of their comments below:
