Donald Trump had one jaw-dropping reaction to Fox News firing Tucker Carlson

May 3, 2023

Conservatives are still trying to sort out Fox News ousting Tucker Carlson.

Donald Trump is among that number.

And Donald Trump had one jaw-dropping reaction to Fox News firing Tucker Carlson.

Donald Trump won the GOP nomination and the Presidency in 2016 thanks to an avalanche of free media.

Trump would talk to any media outlet and answer questions for hours on end.

In 2024, Trump looks to try and recapture that spirit by announcing the risky decision to sit for a town-hall interview on Fake News CNN.

Former Daily Caller reporter turned corporate-controlled media activist Kaitlan Collins will moderate the event.

Trump’s motivations for appearing on CNN for the first time in years appears to be designed in part to send a message to Fox News for firing Tucker Carlson.

POLITICO reports:

The former president and his staff have re-engaged the mainstream press corps after largely shunning them. They have been in talks with sit-downs with several other notable outlets, including NBC. He has also invited an array of reporters from mainstream outlets to fly with him on his plane to and from campaign events.

Those in the former president’s orbit believe that by giving interviews and access to mainstream outlets, they can broaden Trump’s message — and create a contrast with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has widely been seen as more closed off toward mainstream outlets while granting interviews to conservative ones.

However, Trump’s CNN appearance is also an apparent shot at Fox News, the conservative cable news outlet that recently parted ways with Tucker Carlson.

Ratings slumped for the network in the wake of Tucker Carlson’s ouster.

Trump appearing on CNN will signal to the viewers abandoning the network that Fox News Channel will not be the only place they can see coverage of him during the 2024 election.

Trump attending a CNN town hall comes as a surprise to many since he recently threatened to boycott the second Republican Debate at the Reagan Library because the publisher of the Washington Post is the Library’s Chairman.

“I see that everybody is talking about the Republican Debates, but nobody got my approval, or the approval of the Trump Campaign, before announcing them. When you’re leading by seemingly insurmountable numbers, and you have hostile Networks with angry, TRUMP & MAGA hating anchors asking the ‘questions,’ why subject yourself to being libeled and abused? Also, the Second Debate is being held at the Reagan Library, the Chairman of which is, amazingly, Fred Ryan, Publisher of the Washington Post. NO!” Trump posted on Truth Social.

Trump also has a history of granting interviews to Fake News Media reporters for ABC News, the New York Times, and the Washington Post that come back to bite him after the reporters twist his words and ask gotcha questions designed to embarrass him.

Will this CNN town hall be another Fake News Media ambush?

Or will this event show Trump can fend off the Fake News Media and take the fight to the Left?
