When Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to warn that he “will send in the Feds” if Chicago “doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on,” the Huffington Post's Michael Calderone noted a parallel between the president’s tweet and a segment hosted by Trump booster Bill O’Reilly on Fox New’s “The O’Reilly Factor.”
