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.

Thirty-six minutes later, Trump clarified that he was aware of the fact Ailes is dead.
And was again mocked.

@realDonaldTrump @FoxNews Nope. F*ck Roger Ailes, that slimy, sleazy predator. WE MISS PRESIDENT OBAMA.— BrooklynDad_Defiant! (@BrooklynDad_Defiant!)1593570838.0
"We all miss Roger." Ailes was a first class sexual harasser. So perhaps "all" is a bit of a stretch. https://t.co/UquLE7uoCY— S.V. Dáte (@S.V. Dáte)1593570735.0
Not sure the female employees miss him, sir. https://t.co/tNVuHvYjhI— Sam Stein (@Sam Stein)1593570763.0
I'm the most aware that Roger Ailes is dead. Nobody knows he's dead more than I do. https://t.co/feeDv9gJxI— Noam Blum (@Noam Blum)1593570901.0
