Donald Trump praises ‘Fox & Friends,’ blasts ‘Morning Psycho (Joe)’ and CNN as ‘beyond disaster’
President Trump became a critic of prime-time news Tuesday, praising Fox News’ “Fox Friends” and its “highest” ratings while blasting MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and CNN’s “New Day.”
“Sorry to say but @foxandfriends is by far the best of the morning political shows on television. It rightfully has BY FAR the highest ratings, not even close. Morning Psycho (Joe), who helped get me elected in 2016 by having me on (free) all the time, has nosedived, too Angry Dumb and Sick,” the president tweeted.
“A really bad show with low ratings - and will only get worse. CNN has been a proven and long term ratings and beyond disaster. In fact, it rewarded Chris Cuomo with a now unsuccessful prime time slot, despite his massive failure in the morning. Only on CNN,” he added.
Earlier on Tuesday, he also criticized The New York Times for biased coverage, calling for the paper to “get down on their knees beg for forgiveness.”
