President Trump’s clearly tuned into his favorite news channel this morning.

In a tweet thread on Thursday morning, Trump posted several paraphrased quotes from “Fox and Friends” hosts’ chatter about special counsel Robert Mueller’s hearing on Wednesday. The commentary came from hosts Ainsley Earhardt — who claimed yesterday the hearing “changed everything” in Trump’s favor and said she felt bad for Mueller — Brian Kilmeade, a consistent Trump cheerleader and Steve Doocy, who claimed Mueller didn’t “know what was in his report.”

Here’s a video of the actual commentary, which wasn’t far off from what Trump quoted, though it appears he may have made up the “he wins” portion of Earhardt’s quote.

The tweets follow Trump’s declaration that the hearing was “devastating for Democrats” and a “good day” for Republicans.
