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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
