Fox News Now Just Openly Mocking Donald Trump and His 'Unfair Media' Rants
After weeks of controversies and tanking poll numbers, it's no wonder Donald Trump doesn't want to debate Hillary Clinton. But now he's pivoting from his earlier statements regarding "a letter from the NFL" (proven false) to focus on a different excuse for failing to commit to the presidential debate schedule: the media.
Trump has frequently blasted the media for "unfair coverage," despite the fact that the nonstop coverage he has gotten has propelled his campaign. Now he is using the allegedly unfair media to attempt to wriggle out of debating Hillary Clinton.
"I'd just like to see a fair moderator, that's all I'm looking for, you know," Trump told Fox News Wednesday night. "If you're a Republican and conservative, you get very unfair treatment—look at what the New York Times said yesterday, they practically admitted it."
But after replaying the clip this morning, the quintessentially conservative pundits had a laugh at Trump's expense, pointing out that debates usually do just fine when pitted against sporting events like NFL games, and pointing at Trump's odd multitude of "Steves" on his economic team announced last week; a team of 14 members with no women.
"Just thinking that if that guy climbing Trump tower was named 'Steve,' maybe he just wanted to get on the economic team!" said John Roberts.
"Well if you think about it... he's got six on the inside of the building and yesterday he had one climbing up the top."
