In an attack on his favorite news network today, President Trump took to Twitter and slammed Fox News for “working hard” to promote the “radical left.”

“@FoxNews is working hard pushing the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats,” Trump tweeted. “They want to be, unlike their competitors, @CNN & MSDNC (Comcast), Fair & Balanced. When will they ever learn. The Radical Left never even gave @FoxNews permission to partake in their low rated debates!”

Many of Trump’s supporters agreed with his sentiment and lamented that adversarial reporting against Trump from Fox is becoming more and more routine. But others pointed out that Trump is simply attacking the network for not consistently giving him the glowing coverage he’s used to from figures such as Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham.
