This Tuesday morning, President Trump fired off a series of tweets slamming Fox News, his otherwise preferred network, for being too “politically correct” in its coverage of him and allowing Democrats who are “playing up the impeachment hoax” to appear on the network.
…..So, what the hell has happened to @FoxNews. Only I know! Chris Wallace and others should be on Fake News CNN or MSDNC. How’s Shep Smith doing? Watch, this will be the beginning of the end for Fox, just like the other two which are dying in the ratings. Social Media is great!

Trump went on to declare that it’s the “beginning of the end for Fox,” just like MSNBC and CNN “which are dying in the ratings.”
The tweets brought a wave of mockery from Trump’s critics on Twitter, who saw the rant as another example of the pressure of impeachment catching up with the president.
You can smell Trump’s flop sweat from here! Trump can feel the end is near!

You’re angry at Chris Wallace for having the integrity not to participate in the GASLIGHTING OF AMERICA
You’re throwing a tantrum because the truth is coming out

For Trump, “work” consists 90 percent of playing golf and watching Fox. https://t.co/qYpujpcB6o

Trump isn’t happy with anything less than 100 percent fawning propaganda and total loyalty. Fox News interviews a Democrat and he throws a fit. He expects them to rig polls for him. It’s really revealing. https://t.co/vynfh1dr8x

Trump’s mad at Fox again.

Seems like @realDonaldTrump thinks Fox news viewers are going to choose him over Fox news and he seems to have forgot that Fox can ruin him fast.

Remember when this guy testified under oath that you always burn everyone who supports you?

Donald Trump is so far right that he calls Fox News “politically correct”.
And that’s why you don’t give an inch to whinging gammon.
They shriek until you give way, and once they know you will, they just keep shrieking until anything short of Mein Kampf is “PC nonsense”. https://t.co/9HykZwjbmE

The President is so ready not to accomplish anything today that he is rage tweeting like a drunk sailor who is looking at the sea otter a little too closely. I guess for you that would be like how you stare at your 5th morning hamberder.

You sound frightened, Baby Donnie.

Trump spent 45 minutes talking with cast of right-wing play dramatizing ‘Deep State’ conspiracy theories: report
The coronavirus emergency has given President Donald Trump one of the most daunting tests of his administration, with less than a year to go before he stands for re-election.
And yet in the midst of all the chaos, one thing the president found time to do on Thursday was meet with the cast of a bizarre right-wing play dramatizing the supposed "deep state" plot at the FBI to frame Trump in the Russia investigation.
According to The Daily Beast, Trump spent 45 minutes talking with the people behind "FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers," which focuses on the affair between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The leading roles of Strzok and Page were played by Dean Cain, the former Superman actor, and Kristy Swanson, who played the starring role in the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.
‘This is a nightmare’: Trump accused of weaponizing DOJ with new task force focused on stripping US citizenship
"Of all the dystopian sh*t—a department of denaturalization at DOJ might take the biscuit."
Rights advocates expressed outrage and severe concerns after the U.S. Department of Justice announced Wednesday it is creating an official task force devoted to "denaturalization"—the process by which the government strips citizenship from foreign-born Americans, or naturalized citizens.
"Of all the dystopian shit—a department of denaturalization at DOJ might take the biscuit," tweeted activist Joel Braunold. "Means immigrant Americans (such as myself) will always have a threat to displace us if we step out of line."
All US Navy ships in the Pacific near countries with coronavirus ordered to self-quarantine for 14 days
CNN National Security reporter Ryan Browne tweeted Thursday that the U.S. Navy has ordered all of its vessels in the Pacific that have been near countries with COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, "to remain at sea for at least 14 days before pulling into another port in order to monitor sailors for any symptoms of the virus."
Health experts have said that the two-week period should give enough time for infected people to become aware that they are sick.
The highly-contagious disease has spread very quickly in South Korea and California after public exposure. The first person verified with "community-spread" transmission was identified just outside of Sacramento, California.
