Fox Is Fake News!: Trump Supporters At Georgia Rally Hurls Scathing Critiques At Fox News Reporter


Videos posted on social media showed Trump supporters at his Georgia rally on Saturday night chastising a Fox News reporter and openly criticizing the network.

“Fox News does not call the election,” one Trump supporter can be seen on video shouting at Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins. “Nobody here does.”

Another person in the pro-Trump crowd can be heard saying, “We trusted you.”

“Fox is fake news!” Trump supporters can be heard chanting in another video posted online.

Another woman can be heard saying, “Why? Why did y’all turn on everybody?”

President Trump was in Georgia Saturday night rallying support for Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, who are squaring off in a runoff election next month against Democratic challengers Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to determine which political party will control the Senate for the next two years.

Trump and his supporters have grown frustrated with Fox News since the presidential election last month as a result of coverage they feel hasn’t been fair to their side, starting with the network’s decision to call Arizona for President-elect Joe Biden before the other news networks.

The president has criticized the network several times since election night, including in a Nov. 12 tweet where he referred to himself as their “golden goose.”

“.@FoxNews daytime ratings have completely collapsed,” Trump tweeted. “Weekend daytime even WORSE. Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there. They forgot the Golden Goose. The biggest difference between the 2016 Election, and 2020, was @FoxNews!”

Rumors have also circulated that the president is interested in creating his own network to rival Fox News if his legal challenges fall short and he leaves the White House next month.

“President Trump has told friends he wants to start a digital media company to clobber Fox News and undermine the conservative-friendly network,” Axios reported earlier this month.

Trump has also encouraged his supporters to ditch Fox News in favor of other up-and-coming conservative outlets, such as One America News Network and Newsmax.

“.@FoxNews daytime is virtually unwatchable, especially during the weekends,” Trump tweeted last week. “Watch @OANN, @newsmax, or almost anything else. You won’t have to suffer through endless interviews with Democrats, and even worse!”

Despite the unhappiness expressed by many Trump supporters, Fox News Channel ended the month of November as the most-watched cable network in both day and prime-time viewers for the 53rd month in a row.
