Trump Defends Fox News Hosts From Attempt To ‘Silence’ Them

President Trump today defended Fox News hosts, warning that the Democrats and the “Fake News Media” are trying to silence a majority of the country through a campaign against the network’s conservative hosts.

“The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well,” he tweeted.

Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well. Fox …..

….must stay strong and fight back with vigor. Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them. Be strong & prosper, be weak & die! Stay true….

…to the people that got you there. Keep fighting for Tucker, and fight hard for @JudgeJeanine. Your competitors are jealous – they all want what you’ve got – NUMBER ONE. Don’t hand it to them on a silver platter. They can’t beat you, you can only beat yourselves!

Trump specifically named Jeanine Pirro, host of “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” calling for Fox to “bring back @JudgeJeanine.” Pirro’s Fox News show did not air on Saturday night.

Last week, Fox News condemned remarks Pirro made after the host on air questioned whether Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is loyal to Sharia because she wears a hijab.

“We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters,” a Fox News spokesperson told The Hill of Pirro’s show being pre-empted.

Several advertisers pulled their ads from Pirro’s show last week in the wake of the Omar controversy. Tucker Carlson, host of Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” also lost advertisers after a left-leaning blog resurfaced comments he made during appearances on a radio show between 2006 and 2011.

Trump on Sunday also named Carlson. “Keep fighting for Tucker,” he wrote.

He encouraged Fox to “stay strong and fight back” and “stop working soooo hard on being politically correct.” He suggested that Fox’s ratings prove people want its hosts to stay on air.

    Senator Fraser Manning posted this following the shooting. The Northern Queensland politician blamed immigration policy in Australia and New Zealand.

  2. Fox isn’t going to fold, but I would really like to see a list of advertisers threatening to, or that have already left.
    Pretty sure the My Pillow guy is staying.
