President Donald Trump took a few moments to thank his favorite television show and praise them for a particularly good episode.


The president spent the morning issuing threats against China and tried to assure Americans that his tariffs wouldn't hurt them, then pivoted to tweet out praise for "Fox & Friends" and another friendly news outlet One America News.

It's not particularly clear what pleased the president so much about Monday's episode, which featured an interview with acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan and extended bashing of Democrats for declaring a constitutional crisis.
