Trump Argues Fox News Is Trying to Be ‘Politically Correct’ By Inviting on Certain Guests

President Donald Trump appeared on Fox News in an exclusive interview with primetime host Sean Hannity where he switched his focus to the network itself.

When asked about the “numerous gaffes” of 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, Trump responded on the show Wednesday evening, saying, “The media is all on their side. When I say all, all but a little bit including yourselves and some of the folks on Fox.”

Trump continued on to cite the difficulties he has with the network itself, “They put people on that I think are inappropriate and say very, very false things and people don’t challenge them. I think they are trying to be very politically correct or fair and balanced, right, is the term.”

He mentioned the supporters he has outside of Fox News including conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh, conservative radio host Mark Levin, and Fox Business host Lou Dobbs.

Hannity did not respond to the president’s comments on the network afterward but instead moved on to the topic of Trump’s voter turnout in the primaries.

This wasn’t the first time that Trump took a swipe at the network, calling them “politically correct.” At his rally in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Monday, he brought up former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and pivoted quickly to the network’s interview with him.

The president said, “And then you have mini Mike… He’s being interviewed tonight on Fox… They want to, you know, be politically correct. They end up interviewing more Democrats than Republicans, I don’t know what’s going on with Fox.”

Trump has also previously criticized the network for interviewing former FBI Director James Comey and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

Trump’s critiques of Fox News have extended to both its coverage and some of its hosts including Chris Wallace and Shepard Smith, who left Fox News in October of 2019.

Responses

  1. Since the boys have taken over, the slide to the left is very obvious. Who the hell would hire Donna Brazille for anything other than maybe walking your dog? This is just as bad as CNN hiring all of those left wing nuts who lost their jobs at the Trump administration.

  2. Like the rest of the MSM they are no different. They allow untrue statements to go unchallenged. It’s that simple.

  3. Guessing that is Fox trying to be fair and balanced but watching an interview today with David Plouffe, campaign manager for Barack Obama, was painful. He tried slipping in opinions and not facts. But that should not have been a surprise. As for Brazile and Juan Williams, Fox is not doing themselves any favors. So I guess I might agree with our President.
