On Wednesday night, Fox News called out the other networks which neglected to cover the rally that President Donald Trump held Wednesday night in Duluth, MN.
In an impressive show of passive-aggression during the rally, Fox News’ chyron – for several minutes of their broadcast – read: “Trump Rally Live & Only on Fox News: Other Networks Ignore Presidential Rally.”
Indeed, other networks (except for Fox Business and CSPAN, which were also covering the rally) were focused on the new executive order Trump signed seeking to end the policy of separating children from their families.
Thanks for the shade, Fox News. I can’t imagine why other networks chose to forgo airing chants of “CNN Sucks” and Trump boasting about how rich he is for 45 minutes of primetime.
But, as it often does, Twitter threw some shade right back:
President Donald Trump went on a tear against Democrats at his rally in Minnesota Wednesday night regarding his topic du jour — immigration — and made sure to include a painfully xenophobic quip about the Middle East.
“So the Democrats want open borders,” Trump told his rowdy crowd at a Duluth, MN stadium. “Let everybody come in. Let everybody pour in, we don’t care, them come in from the Middle East, let them come in from all over the place.” The crowd booed.
“We don’t care, we’re not going to let it happen,” Trump said.
He then commented on the executive order he signed today the put an end to his administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that separated migrant children from their parents at the southern border.
“We will keep families together but the border is going to be just as tough as it has been,” he said.

President Donald Trump‘s rally in Duluth, MN touched on all the greatest hits, including, of course, the “fake news media.”
After touting the creation of “3.4 million new jobs” since Election Day, Trump turned his attention to bashing the press.
“And I have said before, if I would have said that to you during the campaign, those very dishonest people back there, the fake news, very dishonest. They would have said, he is exaggerating.”
At this point, the crowd chanted “CNN Sucks!” for several seconds, and Trump let it die down before saying again: “These are very dishonest people.”
The president’s constant condemnation of the media is unacceptable — and leads to unfortunate, even dangerous scenes such as this. A free press needs to be cherished by our government, and when the press is the enemy of the state, the country becomes a dictatorship.

Fox’s Laura Ingraham was among the many people who this week said dumb, clumsy, or rotten things about the family separation at the U.S.-Mexico border, but on Tuesday night, before Trump announced his executive action, Ingraham ran an extensive segment from on-location at the border south of San Diego.
The lengthy opening segment to The Ingraham Angle on Tuesday was, in contrast to the icy detachment of White House adviser Stephen Miller, very cognizant of the well-being of the children who have become the responsibility of the American taxpayer. In keeping with her “summer camp” remark, she was highly focused on the quality of care for the kids at the known facilities, as opposed to the harm of being apart from their parents or the horror of American government officials taking them away.
Nevertheless, at least some care was taken with the topic. The situation was “not Continue reading "Laura Ingraham at Border Ahead of Trump Executive Order: Stop Playing Politics and Act"
President Donald Trump will be holding a rally in Duluth, MN on protecting American workers Wednesday night. He will also be stumping for Pete Stauber for the Eighth Congressional seat.
The rally is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. EST.
Trump arrives in Minnesota on the heels of signing an executive order which aims to reunite immigrant children with their families.
The president, however, tends to cover a vast array of topics during rallies which are not directly related to the subject matter POTUS initially planned to discuss; the president will likely be eager to discuss the executive order as a triumph in his administration’s immigration policy.
This is also one of several rallies Trump has held which focus on the American worker.

If you can’t beat them, throw delicious chewy candy at ’em!
According to CBS Senior Global Affairs Contributor Ian Bremmer, President Donald Trump, who was particularly petulant throughout the G7 Summit, threw a couple of Starburst candies on the table in front of German Chancellor Angela Merkel after begrudgingly agreeing to sign a communiqué committing to a “rules-based international order.”
“The advisers had been working on it until 3:00 that morning, straight through the night, including [Economic Advisor Larry] Kudlow from the United States, and Trump was sitting there with his arms crossed, clearly not liking the fact that he felt like they were ganging up on him,” Bremmer explained. “He eventually agreed. He said, okay, he’ll sign it. At that point, he stood up, he put his hand in his pocket, his suit jacket pocket, and he took two Starburst candies out, threw them on the Continue reading "Trump Reportedly Threw Starburst At Angela Merkel During G-7: ‘Don’t Say I Never Gave You Anything’"
