Fox News has long been a friend of President Trump, supporting him through even his darkest times. But even Fox News has its limits, apparently, because lately, the network has been doing less-than favorable pieces on The Donald. Trump has not been taking the change very well, lashing out at any host who dares utter negativity in his name.
Host Lisa Kennedy simply doesn’t care. Kennedy, a former MTV News correspondent, isn’t known for falling in line with the crowd, and her appeal to the children of the 90’s is palpable.
Kennedy just took Trump down in the best way she could have, by calling him a “big, dumb baby.” This is what Kennedy said about Trump for LIVE-tweeting at witness Marie Yovanovitch as she testified before the impeachment committees.
“Should the president be tweeting at her midhearing? No. It makes him look like a big dumb baby. He makes her look like a victim, and if he’d just let it go, the last two days of hearings and testimony would’ve been a snoozefest.”

As we reported, Adam Schiff called out the president for “witness intimidation in real time” for Trump’s tweets that read:
Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.
They call it “serving at the pleasure of the President.” The U.S. now has a very strong and powerful foreign policy, much different than proceeding administrations. It is called, quite simply, America First! With all of that, however, I have done FAR more for Ukraine than O.
“I don’t think I have such powers not in Mogadishu and Somalia and not in other places. I actually think that where I’ve served over the years, I and others have demonstrably made things better, you know, for the U.S., as well as for the countries that I’ve served in. Ukraine, for example, where there are huge challenges including, you know, on the issue that we’re discussing today of corruption, huge challenges, but they have made a lot of progress since 2014 including in the years that I was there, and I think, in part, I, meaning the Ukrainian people get the most credit for that because apart of that credit goes to the United States and to me as the Ambassador because — in Ukraine.”
That’s when Schiff got real about Trump’s tweets:
“Some of us here take witness intimidation very, very seriously. “It’s designed to intimidate, is it not?”
Yovanovitch then said she didn’t want to speculate, but being the person the tweets are aimed at, she feels that the tweets were, in fact, intimidating:
“It’s very intimidating.”
“I can’t speak to what the president is trying to do, but I think the effect is trying to be intimidating.”
People responding to The tweet above had some pretty comedic takes on what was happening. Check out the best reactions below:
