President Trump went after morning news shows Thursday, touting Fox News’ ratings while slamming MSNBC and CNN.
Mr. Trump praised Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” for “blowing away the competition” in the early morning time slot.
He called “Morning Joe” a “dead show” and also picked on CNN, saying they’re failing because of “too much hate and inaccurately reported stories.”
Wow, @foxandfriends is blowing away the competition in the morning ratings. Morning Joe is a dead show with very few people watching and sadly, Fake News CNN is also doing poorly. Too much hate and inaccurately reported stories – too predictable!
