Fox & Friends hosts look visibly uncomfortable when Trump calls the media the ‘enemy of the people’

The hosts of “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday looked visibly uncomfortable when President Donald Trump claimed the entire news media was the “enemy of the people.”

During a lengthy interview, in which the president claimed that he read journalist Bob Woodward’s latest book in one night and found it “boring,” Trump once again went off on the American news media.

“Much of it is, absolutely, the enemy of the people!” the president fumed. “Nobody said it like I say it, but I say it loud and clear! It’s the enemy of the people, whether it’s the New York Times, Washington Post, the networks!”

At this point, host Steve Doocy interrupted to challenge the president’s claim that the entire media are the “enemy of the people.”

“Mr. President, we’re part of the press too!” he said. “Are we the enemy of the people?”

“No, you’re not,” Trump conceded. “I would say about 20 percent isn’t. We don’t have the enemy of the people all over, fortunately.”

2020 Election

Trump has a serious problem with women voters — even in red states

Published

In the past, Texas and Georgia were reliably Republican in presidential elections. But recent polls show that in the 2020 presidential election, Democratic nominee Joe Biden is surprisingly competitive in those light red states — and New York Times reporters Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin, analyzing some recent polling in an article published on September 24, cite female voters as a key reason.

According to newly released New York Times/Siena polls, Trump is leading Biden by 3% in Texas — while Trump and Biden are in a dead heat in Georgia. In Iowa, the Times and Siena found that Biden is ahead by 3%. The last Democratic presidential nominee to win Texas was Jimmy Carter in 1976; the last Democratic presidential nominee to win Georgia was Bill Clinton in 1992.

Published

President Donald Trump's rally rage is getting worse as the election near and his desperation grows.

A Washington Post analysis of his language revealed Trump's growing anger is manifesting into attacks against people of color and the Black Lives Matter movement as well as the media.

"Over the course of the rallies, Trump has amped up his attacks on refugees and a Muslim congresswoman, his approval of violence against journalists, his baseless theories about Joe Biden and his not-terribly subtle shunning of a mask to protect against the novel coronavirus," the Post explained.

CNN presents damning list of all the times Trump has refused to accept election results

Published

President Donald Trump triggered outrage at his Wednesday press briefing for refusing to commit to a peaceful transition of power.

But his attitude is nothing new, wrote Kevin Liptak for CNN, who listed all the times in the last few months Trump has expressed similar sentiments.

On July 19, for instance, Trump told Fox News Sunday, "I'm not going to just say 'yes'" when asked if he'll accept the election results. On July 30, he tweeted that mail ballots are "INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT" and suggested "Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote." On August 17 at a rally, he suggested staying in office beyond two terms, saying "we'll go for another four years because they spied on my campaign. We should get a redo of four years." Three days later, at another rally, he said of Democrats, "they're trying to steal the election, and everybody knows that. Because the only way they're going to win is by a rigged election."
