The hosts of President Trump’s favorite show jumped at the chance to defend Trump and his attacks on the media Thursday morning, suggesting the President is simply asking journalists to “report on the story the way I want it reported.”
“How frustrating would it be if you are the President of the United States and every single time you turn on the TV on most of the channels they are misconstruing what you say,” Ainsley Earhardt, co-host of “Fox and Friends,” said.
“And you know your heart and you know your words and you know your voice and you watch what other people report on what you say and it’s completely different than what you mean,” she continued. “That has to be frustrating. That’s why he is calling it fake news. And he’s saying, ‘if you don’t want to be called the enemy, get the story right and be accurate and report on the story on the way I want it reported.'”
