Trump Announces New Enemy During Unhinged Afternoon Meltdown

This Thursday afternoon, as Coronavirus deaths in the United States continued to climb towards 100,000 and beyond, President Donald Trump was focused on whining about television programming. Specifically, he took to Twitter with an angry rant about the supposedly negative coverage that he’s been facing from Fox, which traditionally has been a conservative stronghold. In reality, the network sometimes tries to simply ask basic clarification questions of the president’s allies, but even that sounds like it’s more than the president is willing to handle.

He could have tweeted, perhaps, a spotlight on the stories of some of the victims of the Coronavirus pandemic. He could have tweeted something about the way forward for the U.S. amidst the pandemic. Instead, he belted out an inane list of nicknames for Fox News hosts that he doesn’t particularly like.

He posted:

Many will disagree, but @FoxNews is doing nothing to help Republicans, and me, get re-elected on November 3rd. Sure, there are some truly GREAT people on Fox, but you also have some real “garbage” littered all over the network, people like Dummy Juan Williams, Schumerite Chris Hahn, Richard Goodstein, Donna Brazile, Niel Cavuto, and many others. They repeat the worst of the Democrat speaking points, and lies. All of the good is totally nullified, and more. Net Result = BAD! CNN & MSDNC are all in for the Do Nothing Democrats! Fox WAS Great!’

Besides the fact that Trump’s characterization of Fox as somehow out to get him is ludicrously petty and disconnected from reality, why on earth does he think that Fox even should be trying to help Republicans get re-elected this November in the first place? Does he think that the network is a campaign arm of the GOP? Does he think that any media, not just Fox, should be supporting the people who are in charge? That’s mindless authoritarianism, at best.

Trump has good reason to worry as the November elections approach. Polls consistently show him losing to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who leads on both the national level and that of individual swing states across the country, including many of the ones that Trump won in 2016.
