President Donald Trump blasted former House Speaker Paul Ryan and criticized Fox News for being “politically correct” after the network hired Ryan to its board of directors.
Ryan was appointed to the Fox Corp. board of directors in March, and according to some reports, is pushing Fox News to pivot from President Trump. The news didn’t sit well with the angry president, who took to Twitter to rant about Fox’s decision.
“Fox keeps on plugging to try and become politically correct,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “They put RINO Paul Ryan on their Board. They hire “debate questions to Crooked Hillary fraud Donna Brazile (and others who are even worse),” he continued.
He added: “Fox News just doesn’t get what’s happening! They are being fed Democrat talking points, and they play them without hesitation or research.”
Trump also went after Fox News anchor Chris Wallace.
“Chris Wallace is nastier to Republicans than even Deface the Nation or Sleepy Eyes,” he said, referring to his favorite nickname for NBC’s Chuck Todd.
Trump noted that, thanks to him, Fox News has record ratings but that conservatives are eager for something better.
“The people who are watching Fox News in record numbers (thank you President Trump), are angry,” he wrote. “They want an alternative now. So do I!”
You can expect more Trump tantrums against Fox News as the election approaches.
