Donald Trump’s relationship with the mainstream media has always been a fickle one, but his latest diatribe on the subject has some folks scratching their heads.
Trump, a fairly regular guest on Fox News, took to criticizing the conservative news channel this week, even going so far as to make an offer to rival CNN should they decide to make a turn toward the right.
“Wow! Fox News is really pushing the Democrats and the Democrat agenda,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “Gets worse every single day. So many Dems interviewed with only softball questions, then Republican counterparts get creamed.”
Trump, a regular cable news watcher, often appeared on and praised Fox News during his time in the White House, but the dynamic between the former president and the network has shifted in recent months.
Here’s where it gets even wilder:
The former president proceeded in Sunday’s post to mention CNN, a rival to Fox that Trump has long described as fake news.
“If ‘low ratings’ CNN ever went conservative, they would be an absolute gold mine, and I would help them do so,” Trump wrote.
CNN has been dealing with some serious restructuring in recent weeks, thanks in no small part to a shakeup at the very top, stemming from a scandal involving disgraced former NY Governor Andrew Cuomo.
