“The Daily Show” on Friday posted a hilarious thread on Twitter in which it gave a step-by-step guide for interviewing President Donald Trump like Fox News hosts.

The first step in the process, writes “The Daily Show” is to take a “soft approach” to interviewing him, as a Fox reporter’s primary task is to “hold his hand.” To bolster this point, it shows a video of assorted Fox hosts asking Trump questions such as, “Are you getting the credit for this economic revival?”, “Are you having fun?” and “You’re one of the most loved and respected in history — how does that feel?”

Step 2 is all about flattering Trump, which will instantly get him to like you. This is then illustrated by a video of Fox hosts blatantly buttering up Trump on their programs, including a clip in which the cast of “Fox & Friends” praise Trump for building a “beautiful” hotel.

Finally, “The Daily Show” recommends helping Trump come up with answers if he seems stumped about answering questions, as illustrated by a video of Fox hosts feeding the president answers shortly after they ask him questions.

The crowd erupted with "No!"

"The only ones who mind are those characters... there's a lot of people up there - the press, right? Those are the only ones. The rest of them don't."

"I would take in more money, but you know what? I don't want to do that, because if I do that I'm totally compromised -- because when they call me, you know, you're a loyal person and what happens, is, hey -- you'll do things..." Trump said.
