Fox News host Neil Cavuto on Tuesday aimed some pointed remarks at President Trump for his criticism of the media’s coverage of his tweets.
“Mr. President, it’s not the fake news media that’s your problem,” Cavuto said on Fox. “It’s you. It’s not just your tweeting, it’s your scapegoating. It’s your refusal to see that sometimes you’re the one who’s feeding your own beast and acting beastly with your own guys.”
He continued, “Look at the critiques you’re now hearing from usually friendly and supportive allies as sort of like an intervention. Because firing off these angry missives and tweets risks your political discussion.”
Prior to Cavuto’s comments, Trump launched another Twitter attack against the media Tuesday, claiming that reporters “hate” his use of Twitter to reach Americans.
“The FAKE MSM is working so hard trying to get me not to use Social Media,” Trump tweeted. “They hate that I can get the honest and unfiltered message out.”
“Sorry folks, but if I would have relied on the Fake News of CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, washpost or nytimes, I would have had ZERO chance winning WH,” Trump noted in another tweet.
On Monday, Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that no one vets Trump’s tweets before he posts them.
“I think social media for the president is extremely important,” she said. “It gives him the ability to speak directly to the people without the bias of the media filtering those types of communications.”
When listening to Cavuto’s monologue, it is near impossible to ignore how similar it is to the words spoken by our very own DML. It appears everyone is starting to catch on that the president’s approach needs to change.
