President Donald Trump launched a barrage of Twitter attacks against Fox News late Sunday night, writing that it was “worse than watching low ratings Fake News CNN.”

The president specifically went after the “weekend hosts” at Fox and compared them to other networks such as “Fake News CNN” and “Lyin’ Brian Williams.”

Trump also slammed the network for not securing the “boring” Democrat debates.

He said that Fox is trying to compensate for the lack of debates by “loading up with Democrats & even using Fake unsourced [New York Times] as a ‘source’ of information.”

“[Fox News] is changing fast, but they forgot the people who got them there!” the president added.

A few hours after those initial tweets, Trump continued his attack on Fox News for hiring Donna Brazile, chair of the Democratic National Committee.

“Impossible to believe that [Fox News] has hired [Donna Brazile], the person fired by [CNN],” he said.

“Watch the [Fox News] weekend daytime anchors, who are terrible, go after her big time. That’s what they want – but it sure is not what the audience wants!” Trump added.

The Western Journal has reached out to Fox News for comment but has not yet received a response. We will update this article if and when we do.

While criticism about Fox News from Trump is rare, this certainly isn’t the first time the president has gone after the network. Just a few weeks ago, Trump said that there was “something weird going on at Fox.”

“[Fox News] Polls are always bad for me. They were against Crooked Hillary also. Something weird going on at Fox. Our polls show us leading in all 17 Swing States,” he wrote. Trump has been a critic of Fox host Shepard Smith since the 2016 campaign.

Just as the campaign was getting started a year earlier, then-candidate Trump wrote, “Boy is this guy [Smith] tough on me. So totally biased. As a reporter, he should be ashamed of himself.”

Additionally, in March of this year, the president went after Fox News hosts on Twitter: “Were [Fox News] weekend anchors, [Arthel Neville] and [Leland Vittert], trained by CNN prior to their ratings collapse?”

“In any event, that’s where they should be working, along with their lowest rated anchor, Shepard Smith!”

    Used to rely on Fox News but have noticed a change in them the past couple of years. I still watch Hannity but now watch OAN Network (Channel 347 on Direct TV) for up-to-date news. They simply state what’s happening instead of giving you their opinion.

    The only program I watch on Fox anymore is Sean Hannity. When he’s gone I’m gone too. I think Hannity will stay until the 2020 elections are over, and then leave. Who knows maybe Fox will give him the axe before the 2020 elections.

    When the frightened FOX Special Report always brought the — bought by Democrat Juan Williams as FOX NEWS — sop — to the Democrat Daily Talking Points Memo — Carrier; I accepted this for awhile. But then contrary to the closing Remark of Special Report’s — moderator ? — it became increasingly apparent the next generation of Fox News publishing family had called Bret Baier onto to the Carpet and told Him to stop ignoring the Democrat message(s).

    I do watch Sean Hannity on You Tube now. Other than that__ not so much.

    Why have you stopped sending me your news emails lately? Is it google?

  • James Benat says:

    Lou Dobbs never has a liberal on his show. What a relief! If I want to see liberals I can watch Shep Smith or any other MSM fake news cables!

  • David Nesbitt says:

    Brett Baier has always been a low-life globalist, liberal piece of shit. He hates America and he hates Trump.

  • robert kauffman says:

    President should know something when Paul Ryan is new director of Fox. Donna Brazile the same one fired by CNN and gave the answers to Clinton in the Presidential Debate. They also continue to keep Sheppard Smith who is the pitts. He should be on CNN with his other buddies.
