Fox News' top rating morning show and Trump's most trusted servants complained that the media is timing negative stories to hurt Trump as soon as any positive news comes out.
Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster of morning talk shows will never blame Trump for anything he says or does or give President Obama any props for increasing the stock market by 140% since his own inauguration.
During this morning's broadcast of Fox and Friends, the trio of state propagandists played a clip from Trump's Lou Dobbs' softball interview from Wednesday evening.
They were very excited when Trump said, "What could be more fake than CBS and NBC and ABC and CNN when you look at some of these stories and look at the amount of negative?"
After the clip ended, Brian Kilmeade said, "Every time something happens where the president gets on a roll; whether it's the Poland speech, or the rise in the market, or the economy at 3 percent. There is some type of opposition research almost jumps down and holds on."
Ainsley, "It's like they hold it."
Kilmeade, "And it just, it seems like they're running timing patterns. The latest one is the WikiLeaks revelation that Cambridge Analytica reached out to Julian Assange to find out if they had the 30,000 emails from Hillary Clinton."
"He did confirm yesterday they did reach out: "I didn't give them an answer." Cambridge Analytica was just one of the private firms hired by the Trump campaign at some point on the social media side," Kilmeade said.
You mean Trump's people were in contact with Julian Assange?
Doocy jumped in, "Well ultimately the president did say in the very beginning there is nothing to the Russia thing and now we are learning maybe not so much -- "
Ainsley, "There is, there is."
Doocy, " Regarding him and collusion."
The last bit got muddled, so it's hard to say -- does Steve Doocy believe Trump was colluding with Russia?
Either way, it's dangerous for our democracy if the so-called president and his all his acolytes on Congress, in his cabinet and on radio, TV and the internet -- promote the false story that every negative story about Trump is proof of a mainstream media conspiracy.
That kind of gaslighting is what dictators do. And Fox News is helping.
PS. Don't get me started on how Fox and Friends treated Obama for eight years. It's in our archives if you're interested.
