A rift between the President and his favorite network, FOX News, is developing, according to insider sources.
James Murdoch, the younger brother of CEO Lachlan Murdoch, has said he is “embarrassed” by Fox News.
Mr. Trump immediately rushed off the deep end with how both these notables of the Murdoch clan are “very liberal” plus he questioned whether they “can be trusted.”
Part of the transformation in this relationship is due to Tucker Carlson’s increasingly anti-war views, plus support of a peaceful foreign policy.
Mr. Carlson is also deeply immersed in the possibility of running for president—next year, in competition with Mr. Trump.
A colleague (anonymous) has said Mr. Carlson is “rapt with the idea.”
The word rapt (meaning totally engrossed and fascinated) comes from Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
Also, Tucker is inclined toward further peace moves, such as going ahead with swapping back the tankers, and sending Bolton and Pompeo to Iran in exchange for any prisoners they might happen to have still hanging around.
Mr. Trump has been heard murmuring sadly, in one of his many bathrooms: “Et tu, Tucker, you f**ker?”
The entire FOX network is apparently behind this move, and contemplating a “Dump Trump” insider campaign.
Not least is that possibly a plant within FOX has poisoned minds toward more socialism, in rapid strides.
What with suggesting free health care and education, plus taxing the rich more heavily, and getting the minimum wage up, the word begins its horrible ringing in the ears.
As part of his come-down on these matters, Mr. Trump evaluates FOX News as “worse than fake news CNN.”
Mr. Trump’s psychiatrist, the eminent Dr. Wilma Fingerling, has said the President has not been this “melancholy” since he last parted from his “brother”, Kim Jong Un.
Dr. Fingerling continued.
Mr. Trump must shake himself away from the notion that the only audience he has, the only remaining group behind him, is the twitterati, plus fans at his rallies.
His obsession with listening to audio of his fans cheering him throughout the day will pass. It is momentary only.
