After his mental fitness was again called into question, President Donald Trump on Tuesday evening clarified that he does know former Fox News chief Roger Ailes has been dead for years.
It started when Trump was attacking Fox News for hiring analyst Donna Brazile.
“Where are you Roger Ailes?” Trump asked.
Trump was quickly mocked for his question.

Who wants to tell him

Thirty-six minutes later, Trump clarified that he was aware of the fact Ailes is dead.
And was again mocked.
Trump tweeted to Roger Ailes forgetting that he died 3 years ago, and is making things worse by pretending like he did it on purpose. All of this wouldn’t be such a big deal if Trump wasn’t the meanest, most vicious bully on the planet always attacking others so inhumanely.

On a side note, do you think this man spends even a single night of the week talking to or spending time with his young son?

Nope. F*ck Roger Ailes, that slimy, sleazy predator.
WE MISS PRESIDENT OBAMA.

"We all miss Roger."
Ailes was a first class sexual harasser.
So perhaps "all" is a bit of a stretch. https://t.co/UquLE7uoCY

Not sure the female employees miss him, sir. https://t.co/tNVuHvYjhI

I'm the most aware that Roger Ailes is dead. Nobody knows he's dead more than I do. https://t.co/feeDv9gJxI
