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!”

    I agree with the president 100% as do millions of Patriots have been commenting about the changes at Fox for almost a year now and millions have stopped watching Fox.

        They’ve stopped watching since they are DEAD! Fox’s viewing audience is quite old… and they don’t get new viewers since kids don’t watch cable news.

      Rupert Murdocks 2 Liberal sons are running FOX and they want to change it. Killing the golden egg is what they are doing. I predict that the stellar fox cast will go their own way and start their own cable channel.

      I agree David. It’s so sad that all these news channels have a price and once they receive that price they work to help destroy America from within. Soon they will probably get rid of their three best conservative news casters, and when they do that it, im done with them.

    When Rupert Murdoch put his Harvard educated euro-trash sons in charge at Fox News it was the beginning of the end. They are left-wing liberals with personal ambitions to make their needy wifes acceptable to NYC society uber libtard standards. There are more Dem hires than conservative hires and new hires like Bo Bo Brazil and Marie Harf are a slap in face of conservatives. God, are they dumb. Panel discussions often have 2 Dems and 1 conservative (maybe). I watch Maria, Varney, Payne, prime time and that’s it. Wallace, Baier, Jon Scott, and Shep Smith can go to CNN and be very comfortable. Fox News is building their own clown car to compete with CNN. The Euro-trash Murdoch brothers will look just like the Fake News MSM networks by the end of the year. OAN will be beneficiary.

    And FoxNews was all we had left, but not anymore. Dumbest move they could have made was hiring Donna whatshername.

      Donna Reed?

    Absolutely agree with Trump about Brazile and Shep Smith. I don’t watch during the day, but prime time is still good: Tucker, Hannity & Ingram Angle, as well as Watters World & Judge Janine on Saturdays, and Mark Levin, so there’s still a fair number of pro-conservative shows on the network. Hopefully those shows don’t go anywhere. They shouldn’t, considering they’re all ratings juggernauts. Rupert Murdoch would be wise to take notice of what the audience wants, because hiring Brazile and keeping Shep Smith are disturbing. They shouldn’t be on Fox at all.

      I agree 100%. Dump Shepard Smith and that cheater Brazile. Why would a news program hire a cheater like Brazile? That does not make sense.

      Perry, why don’t you crawl back under your rock with your buddies at the DNC and stay out of conservatives way? You people are like cow manure. You just make a mess between our toes and stink when we step on you.

    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.

    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!
