Donald Trump’s relationship with Fox News is deteriorating. He’s not a huge fan of what he’s seeing from the network.
But Donald Trump was blindsided by this devastating backstab from Fox News.
Donald Trump has had a rocky relationship with big media titans ever since the beginning.
Liberal outlets like CNN, MSNBC, and NBC spent years pushing false narratives in hopes of discrediting the former president.
Unfortunately for them, it only strengthened his resolve and he’s back with a fury now.
But even nominally conservative outlets like Fox News have pulled underhanded tricks on Trump.
And Donald Trump’s most recent critique of Fox News was directed at the network for airing repeated segments of left-wing comedian and HBO Real Time anchor Bill Maher.
Maher is a frequent opponent of the woke Left’s lunacy, including Critical Race Theory and their hardline gender ideology, and Fox News commentators like to broadcast Maher’s footage to demonstrate that many Democrats are rebelling against the Party’s radical agenda.
Trump, on the other hand, warned Fox News that Maher is a far-left liberal who supports abortion, gun control, and frequently repeats the fabricated Democrat talking point that former President Donald Trump and the 74 million Americans who voted for him want to overthrow the United States government.
“It amazes me that Fox News and soft Conservatives immediately put up Bill Maher on their Network when he makes a statement that is close to normal,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
“They think they’re being so cool, but MAGA people and real Conservatives view them as fools, playing right into the Radical Left’s hands, and don’t like it.”
Trump went on to criticize Fox News for airing excerpts of a liberal comedian who despises everything the Fox News audience believes in.
“Bill Maher is a Low Ratings sleazebag who should never be shown on a Conservative Network,” Trump added.
“He doesn’t believe in anything we stand for, and never will. He’s laughing at you for being weak and stupid!”
Even Maher, in his own way, agrees with Trump’s criticism.
“Let’s get this straight,” Maher said recently. “It’s not me who changed — it’s the Left, who is now made up of a small contingent who’ve gone mental, and a large contingent who refuse to call them out for it. But I will.”
“That’s why I’m a hero at Fox these days,” he concluded. “Which shows just how much liberals have their head up their a–, because if they really thought about it, they would have made me a hero on their media.”
