Donald Trump attacked Fox News on Twitter again over the weekend, calling it worse than CNN and slamming his former best buddies for acting like an actual news network by sourcing from The New York Times.
The president’s latest anti-Fox News tweet rant came shortly after the network began reporting on the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein, known billionaire pedophile who has been accused of running a sex trafficking ring and who has clear connections to Trump.
.....Comcast (NBC/MSNBC) Trump haters, who do whatever Brian & Steve tell them to do. Like CNN, NBC is also way down in the ratings. But @FoxNews, who failed in getting the very BORING Dem debates, is now loading up with Democrats & even using Fake unsourced @nytimes as....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 7, 2019
…a “source” of information (ask the Times what they paid for the Boston Globe, & what they sold it for (lost 1.5 Billion Dollars), or their old headquarters building disaster, or their unfunded liability? @FoxNews is changing fast, but they forgot the people who got them there!

It takes Trump at least three tweets to attack Fox News because he keeps getting distracted by how much he hates every other news outlet.
According to HuffPost, theTimes article Trump was referring to may have been the Sunday report on a Texas detention center for migrant children (also known as a concentration camp) that has been found to be an overcrowded hell hole with rampant illness and hunger.
What’s worse, being responsible for concentration camps or being involved in a human trafficking ring? It also could have been the live broadcast at a sports bar after the U.S. women won the World Cup, which Fox News was surprised to find was not full of Trump fans.
Trump is also upset that Fox News gave Donna Brazile, a Democrat, a job (presumably so they can continue to claim to be a news network and not just a conservative yelling machine).
....their lowest rated show. Watch the @FoxNews weekend daytime anchors, who are terrible, go after her big time. That’s what they want - but it sure is not what the audience wants!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 8, 2019
So he hates Brazile, but he thinks the weekend anchors who “go after her big time” are “terrible”? This is confusing even for you, Donald.
Then again, nothing gets people more excited than a good “trouble in paradise” story.
Me watching this lovers’ spat between you and Fox. Love it! Please continue! pic.twitter.com/bYc7Bkp4Yg

Well hold on to your seat, baby Trump. It’s going to get a lot worse for you and all Epstein’s “friends” the next few weeks. Your “friends” at Fox know this one is too juicy – even for them. https://t.co/KrzJwaSPfn

When state TV turns on you then you know you’re in trouble.

Even for YOU, this is a really angry, unhinged tweet. You should be thrilled, since our #USWNT won the World Cup Finals, and brought home the glory. Unless…
Did you watch that FoxNews chant?

Seriously, you are going to say anything about Brian Williams when you lied and paid off a doctor to get a fake diagnosis to evade the draft and coward your ass out of Vietnam. You are a disgrace

Fox is the only major media outlet that outright lies. But, they don’t ALWAYS lie. I guess that’s what has Spanky McDumbass so upset today. pic.twitter.com/nUx5BlRlTR

This thread is interesting. Trump complaining about Fox News seems odd, but it's only the straight news-reading version of Fox (i.e. the weekend version) which he doesn't like. Hannity, Judge Jeanine, Tucker are all still on speed-dial. https://t.co/xRmyUha8Rk— Kamahl Santamaria (@KamahlAJE) July 8, 2019
