Trump Launches Attack on Fox News Anchors: ‘Worse Than… Fake News CNN, or Lyin’ Brian Williams’

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!”

A version of this story appears on the Western Journal website.

    Yes Mr Pres we noticed the same thing, I watch these on Fox: The 5, Next Rev, Hannity, & FBN: Varney & Co., Lou Dobbs.
    Dont watch Shep Smith. & hiring Brazille & Dem debates BS
    Blame the Arabs running FNC

  • gloria mcmillian says:

    Hiring Donna was a shock! Just barf inducing. Sheppy has always been a train wreck. Not sure where his brain was let off. Fox has apparently got someone at the top not very bright.

    • Evangeline says:

      Ya, I was shocked, too they would hire Donna. Very bad taste.

    • CharlieSeattle says:

      The Murdoch effect at work.

    • Theresa marie Stackles says:

      I also was shocked they hired Donna Brazil, not happy about it. I wish fox & friends would stop putting Democrats on F&Friends, I love F&Friends cant stand Juan either. Love our President & family

  • Stuart tamres says:

    That’s why I now watch One American News

  • Donnie Medows says:

    I used to record and watch Fox 11 am to 10 pm.
    Now I only record Lou Dobbs and Laura Ingraham.
    When I saw Donna “Bono” Brazille on Fox and friends then of all places on Hannity that was it for me!!!

  • Sandy Miller says:

    My guess is Fox is owned by a leftist liberal. Even so you would think that they would see the low ratings for all those leftist networks and go the opposite direction. Shep Smith and Donna Brazeal need to go and go pronto. They are liberal skanks.

    • RK says:

      @SandyMiller… it is now owned by Disney
      i believe it was sold to them about a year ago..it is on public record
      i just cant remember the link to get the info

    • Helga Renfro says:

      you can add Juan Williams and grating voiced Jessica Tarlov. I am sick of all these lefties on Fox. Fox was the only place conservatives could still go because all the other stations our in outer space. AT+T cable has he only station left where we are not being fed this liberal garbage and that is OAN One America News. That is a privately owned station and I hoped they will not follow these disgusting practices and only show liberal crap.

  • KATIE M SMITH says:

    Anytime Donna Brazile is on I change the channel. Cannot stand her.

  • Gayle says:

    I watch Tucker, Hannity, Laura, Judge Janine, Lavin, Fox and Friends! I don’t watch The.Five because I can’t take Juan Williams! Shepard Smith, Chris Wallace, Donna Brazile are NEVER on my TV! I turn the station on Leslie Marshall, Napolitano! Not fond of Parino, Cavuto, Baier! I do like Watters, Gutfeld, Dobbs, Henry, Payne, Jarrett, McDowell, Pavlich, Hilton, Bruce, Gowdy, Gingrich and a few Moreau! But there is definitely a big shift toward the left! If I get aggravated I change the station

  • Rise Myers says:

    Bring in super intelligent people like Dr Girks and Michael Savage and Larry Elder and get rid of the lame brained weekend hosts. I don’t turn to weekend fox until Judge Jeanine, Jessie Watters and Nark Levine. The rest of the weekend lineup are not worth watching. Arthel Lee and Brazile and that other kid are totally incompetent and ignorant. Shame on Fox for the poor choices!

  • John Boyd says:

    I stopped watching Fox a year ago. They are as liberal. Just listen to Rush. I read the Epoch News..

  • Brianna D Penny says:

    It’s the equivalent of the Dem candidates pandering to the left and illegal immigrants by trying to speak Spanish..they’re trying to get on their good side but liberals such as my sister want nothing to do with fox news. She won’t even allow anyone to watch fox news in her house. There was an article about the son trying to pander to the left and a lot of the response on Twitter was negative. I believe that whole soccer thing was staged too just to try and get Democrats to watch them. Now I think the dumbocrats might have fell for that one.

  • Greg says:

    I quit watching FOX a few months ago…only Life Liberty & Levin & Hannity are worth watching, anyway…maybe a couple more…used to like “The Five”, but I loathe Juan Williams & stopped watching…besides, when they have that fake ass bitch Donna Brazil on the show, they always kiss her fat ass & that ticks me off… they don’t even call her out on anything, just go along with her garbage smiling & laughing…
    Kat Timpf should be a guest on the show, not that Marie Barf & Donna fat ass Brazil …

    • Alice says:

      I agree with you 100%!!!! OAN is my major station now. Let Fox go down the tubes like CNN. Really fed-up with the Fox kooks.

  • Terri says:

    The wives of Murdoch’s sons are the ones that were bringing on all the lefties a couple of years or so ago. The good thing is NOBODY is watching tv on the weekends because we have lives to live, so there’s nobody on there to “miss”. But to get REAL information, go to OAN, One America News. Ain’t nobody got time to waste on Fox anymore!!!! LOL!!!!

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    …a twitter attack? How f**king lame.

    President Trump, you can arrest the DOJ/FBI/CIA/NSA/IRS/DNC/CAIR/ANTIFA and leftist MSM members ☭NN, AB☭, NB☭, ☭BS, MSNB☭, ☭NB☭, NPR, WaP0S, HuffP0S, MEDIA MALPRACTICE and THE NY SLIMES………….now!

    All these “Deep State” sycophants actions fall under the crime of SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY!

  • Marie says:

    Yes…Disney did buy them and that is when it went down hill. After they fired Judge Jeanine and brought her back, she isn’t as firey as she used to be. Last weekend she didn’t even do an open which is the best part of her show.. Get BALZETV on our computer and you can also stream it to your pads and phones.

  • Bill says:

    I agree with you President Trump,, something is going wrong with parts of FOX. I guess that’s the fair and balanced side of FOX. I’d say there shooting themselves in the foot. Hope they can stay smart news because the being balanced with CNN isn’t working out so good. We wait to read Trump’s tweets to see who’s telling the truth.

  • Looks like the liberals bought out someone else.
    Now we have to tune in overseas news channels just to hear the
    real news. All American news is starting to suck.
    If Fox goes left 100% the only way to hear from president trump
    will be by a emergency channel on phones. (Just saying)

    • Lavon75 says:

      DONA’T FORGET THERE IS OAN WHICH IS VERY GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY IN THE STATE OF OUR UNION AND OVERSEAS NEWS. I BOUNCE BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN TUCKER’S SHOW AND THE LEDGER REPORT ON OAN.

  • chris says:

    That gnonehead, TDS sufferer, Chris Hanh is even worse than wanker Juan.

  • Cynthia says:

    I agree, Fox is changing and not for the better. Anything that DONNA is on, I mute or change the station. Why would Fox hire a democrat CHEATER AND LIAR. Juan Williams is bad enough but Donna. I watch The Five sometimes, Tucker, Hannity, Laura and catch Levin from time to time.

  • David SALERNO says:

    Once again the president is 100% correct. I stopped watching FOX almost a year ago.

  • Louis says:

    Demise is on the rise for Fox News if they continue to hire liberals like Donna Brazile. Can’t they see why they are rated #1 and if they continue to move towards a leftist swing, ratings will definitely decline. There are only a hand full of broadcasts that I watch on Fox – the Five, less Juan Williams and Ms. Goody two shoes, Dana Perino, Martha McClellan, Tucker, Hannity, Laura Ingram, Judge Jeanie, Watters’ World, Levin and maybe one or two more. All other shows belong on CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS & ABC, the liberal stations!

  • J MULLIN says:

    The coverage over the 4th was absolutely horrible and every onr of them could only talk about the stuoid lefts running for debate over and over the same thing for 4 days. I am not going to watch them anymore. They pander to the snowflakes then let their rarings drop dead like the resst of them. This is being done by logorithyms on google and face book. Big tech needs to be called down and arresed for what they are doing to the news and media altogether!

  • Shirley casale says:

    Hannity and a few others are an exception that I will watch but since they hired Donna Brazile things have changed dramatically and I see Fox moving to the left every day .Another channel is biting the dust and it is very disappointing to me . I will turn to other channels not to watch these leftist lies anymore !

  • Sidney Patin says:

    Yeah, Donna Brazielle was a pretty poor choice. It got me to watch – once – to see if she was going to come clean and dump on the Democrats for their sleazy tactic. No such luck. Fox could do better casting that that POS. If she is in it for the money, they should give her $50 and tell her to catch the next bus to somewhere else.

    He’s right.
