Dedicated Fox News viewers lashed out on Friday after the network's morning show, Fox & Friends ran a commercial calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
After the first 15 minutes of Friday's program, Fox & Friends tossed to a commercial financed by billionaire activist Tom Steyer.
"He's brought us to the brink of nuclear war," Steyer says in the ad. "Accused of obstructing justice at the FBI and violating the constitution by taking money from foreign governments and threatening to shut down news organizations that report the truth.
"If that isn't a case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president then what has our government become?" he asks. "People in Congress and his own administration know that this president is a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons. And they do nothing."
Trump reacted on Twitter by calling Steyer "wacky" and "totally unhinged."
Wacky & totally unhinged Tom Steyer, who has been fighting me and my Make America Great Again agenda from beginning, never wins elections!

Needless to say, fans of Fox News were also irate about the commercial. Some called for a boycott of Fox News, while others blamed communists and Jews for the ad.

What! @FoxNews - Are you seriously selling out and airing "Impeach" commercials. I'm doubting that the MSM are airing Pro-FOX commercials.

Just saw your commercial on FOX. Nothing you said was true. Trump's tweets RE silencing MSM was stupid but lying under oath is much worse...
