Trump lashes out at Fox News amid impeachment fight

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump on Thursday complained about his media coverage as the second week of public impeachment hearings drew to a close, even blasting his preferred cable news network for interviewing a Democratic congressman investigating his conduct.

In a tweet in the morning, Trump lashed out at Fox News host Shannon Bream for a segment on her weeknight newscast featuring Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), a member of the House Intelligence Committee and a frequent target of the president’s ire.

Trump has previously invoked Swalwell, a former Democratic presidential candidate, on social media at least four times this year, and similarly criticized Fox News’ coverage of the lawmaker in July.

The president in recent months has stepped up his attacks on the conservative-leaning network, whose opinion hosts consistently defend the White House in primetime programming.

1. Even Fox Reality TV News Knows when to get ready for the final curtain call...

...because the Trump Reality Show is about to end and Trump TV along with RT, I guess, will be bed partner competitors for the future cultivation of the new generation of right wing nuts to come that's more appropriate for Nationalist types.

It's funny how the so called Nationalists, are spoon fed propaganda from a globalist owned network with all their hatred towards globalism.

We also saw a few good Journalists leave FOX during the past several weeks and months, so that's another sign. Oh, when are we gonna hear more about the late night Trump calls to Hannity? The contents therein? The questions asked on live TV? And, while we're at it, Hannity's shady deals with his mentors.

6. "We report. You decide."

When I first got cable, I was flipping through the news programs and heard the foxnews announcer's voice say "We report. You decide." I thought it was a VERY odd way to open a 'news' show and chose to avoid it. Looks like they've always been full of it.

4. Hmm... The Jaundiced Blowfish lashing out at Shannon Bream.

A female.

Imagine that...

It's a common problem among Republicans, this constant lashing out at uteri.

Homo-affiliation is the word for it, I guess.

Who cares? Why is this worthy of supposedly Presidential input at all?

He's a serious drama queen. I don't get why so many people approve of his tantrums.
