It looks like Trump isn’t finished with Twitter today after all. After bashing late Senator John McCain this morning, Donald turned to express his disdain for a few Fox News reporters.
Evidently, three Fox News reporters are a bit too liberal for Trump’s taste, and he wasted no time bullying them for it. Donald sent out a sarcastic tweet this afternoon asking, “Were @FoxNews weekend anchors, @ArthelNeville and @LelandVittert, trained by CNN prior to their ratings collapse?” He then went on to personally attack Shepard Smith saying, “In any event, that’s where they should be working, along with their lowest rated anchor, Shepard Smith!”

Smith often catches hell from Trump along with many other conservative viewers for his more neutral-leaning viewpoints when it comes to politics and the Trump administration as a whole.
Trump simply can’t stand it when someone doesn’t bow down in the glow of his glory. So, instead of being a decent human being and accepting the fact that people not only have but are allowed to have different viewpoints, he chooses to bully and attack them — in an attempt to push everyone out that doesn’t hail him as a king. God forbid someone call him out on his shit.
This isn’t even the first time that POTUS has attacked the Fox News Network today. Earlier this morning he pitched himself quite the Twitter fit over Jeannie Pirro’s suspension for insulting a Muslim member of Congress — especially considering the travesty that just befell New Zealand.
So basically, not only does Trump want to completely belittle, taunt, and erase everyone that doesn’t fit his motives — he also wants to simultaneously defend and praise those that are openly and publicly anti-Muslim.
Here’s the difference between Neville, Vittert, and Smith, and the rest of the Fox personalities that Trump loves: Those three are actual news reporters, while the rest are only ever billed as opinion hosts.
The guy certainly doesn’t need any help digging his own holes.
