Trump Blows Up Over Fox News Airing Obama’s ‘Fake Speech’ squib
President Donald Trump raged on Tuesday over his favorite cable news channel giving airtime to the president he succeeded, grumbling on Twitter that Fox News was playing Barack Obama’s “no crowd, fake speech” for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden while reacting to Obama’s comments in real-time.
Shortly after the start of Fox News’ midday opinion panel show Outnumbered, anchor Harris Faulkner told viewers—which obviously included the TV watcher-in-chief—that they would be pulling out to cover Obama’s campaign speech in Florida. The network wasn’t alone in airing the ex-president’s address live, as CNN and MSNBC also extensively covered it.
Obama’s fiery speech, meanwhile, focused heavily on prosecuting the case that the president is unfit for a second term and is more concerned about personal grievances and his own personal media coverage.
