President Donald Trump is displeased with Fox News for hosting a town hall with 2020 Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg on Sunday night.

“Hard to believe that @FoxNews is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him,” Trump complained in a series of tweets on Sunday. “Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems.”

Trump posted similarly whiny tweets after Fox News held a town hall with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in April.

“So weird to watch Crazy Bernie on @FoxNews. Not surprisingly, @BretBaier and the ‘audience’ was so smiley and nice,” Trump tweeted.

His complaining dragged on to the next day. “Many Trump Fans & Signs were outside of the @FoxNews Studio last night in the now thriving (Thank you President Trump) Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, for the interview with Crazy Bernie Sanders,” POTUS tweeted. “Big complaints about not being let in-stuffed with Bernie supporters. What’s with @FoxNews?”

  3. Next, tRump will be saying its unconstitutional to use Faux News for anything other than tRump TV. I think its just a matter of time before he has Attorney General Barr look into it. He may even launch an investigation if they don’t all get back on the trumptrain. One must learn to goose step correctly for Hair Furor.

  4. If anyone knows a waste of air, it’s Spankee. He sees it every time he looks in the mirror.

  5. Donnie regards FOX News as his personal propaganda outlet.
    Hannity, Pirro, Ingraham, and FOX & Friends have guzzled the Trump-Ade – others have declined to do so.
