Donald Trump was up at 3 a.m. on Monday writing an all-caps tirade against Fox News for not continuing to push his big lie that the 2020 election was stolen from him.
“IF FOX WOULD FINALLY ADMIT THAT THERE WAS LARGE SCALE CHEATING & IRREGULARITIES IN THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, WHICH WOULD BE A GOOD THING FOR THEM, & FOR AMERICA, THE CASE AGAINST THEM, WHICH SHOULD NOT HAVE EXISTED AT ALL, WOULD BE GREATLY WEAKENED,” Trump wrote on his Twitter knockoff site Truth Social.
“BACK UP THOSE PATRIOTS AT FOX INSTEAD OF THROWING THEM UNDER THE BUS – & THEY ARE RIGHT! THERE IS SOOO MUCH PROOF, LIKE MASS BALLOT STUFFING CAUGHT ON GOVERNMENT CAMERAS, FBI COLLUDING WITH TWITTER & FACEBOOK, STATE LEGISLATURES NOT USED, etc,” Trump added.
Trump’s rant came hours after news reports revealed that Fox has been making a late push to settle the defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems.
Dominion’s lawyers have uncovered significant evidence of malice at Fox News. Leaked internal messages and court testimony have shown that Fox continued broadcasting false claims about Dominion even though they privately believed them to be false.
But Trump slammed the network for not doubling down on the same bogus election conspiracy theories that got it sued in the first place.
