    Doesn't matter if it's Fox, CNN or whatever. Getting all your current events from cable news shows is stupid. Especially for someone like the Commander and Chief.

    I died laughing when trump responded to fox and friends by turning on and off the light from white house.

    FOX has never been about real news. It only exists to serve as background noise for the elderly.

    I think this shows that all cable news is pretty awful. Fox says something dumb, Trump tweets about it, and then CNN spends hours talking about Trump's tweet. It's just a cycle of talking heads. Where is the actual journalism?

    Political bubbles are the worst, we need honest journalism with the facts no political biases, right wing or left.

    Remember when Fox News/Conservative News media actually criticized it when the President took vacation days/the cost it had? Oh wait, I forgot to them it only matters when a Democrat is in charge, much like the deficit isn't an issue when Republicans are in charge. FOX News doesn't even try to hard how partisan/pro-Republican they are anymore.

    Their lies are 'YUGE'...especially about universal health and Canada's health care in particular. Canada has an excellent health care system. Wake up Americans! This is one group of stupid newscasters!

    There are national emergencies going on and trump is tweeting about his approval ratings. 20% of our oxygen comes
    from the rain forest and there are massive fires there and not 1 word from trump about this! WORSE PRESIDENT IN HISTORY!

    What I find particularly interesting is that Trump´s time-table was leaked and, if true, his "executive time" coincides with Fox&friends :)

    I literally can not stop seeing “Fox and Friends” as a kids tv show where there is some dude with animated friends

    "How is this even real?" I've been asking myself that every day since Nov. 8th 2017. We've been living in a surreal world ever since America elected the man destined to be the worst American president ever! WTF! WTF! WTF!

    Come on. Even Trump supporters can't think that the POTUS being directly influenced by a morning show on FOX is any good.
