Fox News and Donald Trump

Trump has recently ramped up his war with the network that has always been his ally and is said to be afraid that it isn't loyal enough to him.

Fox News' Bret Baier paused his show Monday night to directly address President Donald Trump's critiques of his network.

"Trump responded to a question about Fox's poll on Sunday, telling reporters that "Fox is a lot different than it used to be".

Roughly half of the respondents who said they voted for Mr. Trump in 2016 - 49% - answered that he would be at least partially to blame for a recession, the poll revealed. "There's something going on at Fox".

"I mean, the one thing you can not say about Joe is that he's a racist", Biden told CNN. "And I'm not happy with Fox". "We do polls." Bair added.

"The poll results matched what we are seeing out there", Baier added.

The Fox News host Bret Baier pushed back on US President Donald Trump's claim that the network had "changed" after it published a poll that found the president had less national support than four Democratic contenders.

The argument boils down to a "shut up and get in line" defense of Joe Biden's candidacy. Bernie Sanders of Vermont was ahead of Trump by 5 points. Elizabeth Warren came in third at 14%, and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg came in fourth at 5%. Kamala "Five-O" Harris, should probably drop out at this point. About 1,000 respondents participated in the poll, which had a +/- 3.7 margin of error, conducted between August 15 and 18.

Yes, Jill tacitly acknowledges, my husband is not the sharpest debater in the shed, nor does he have the cleanest political track record in this "woke" age of 2019, but, gosh darn it, he can beat Donald Trump and that's what we're all here for, right?

During a speech this week in Iowa, while he wasn't forgetting which decade it was when it was, you know, the sixties, Biden was either spreading an audacious and easily disproven lie about Trump, or he's too feeble to remember the countless times Trump denounced former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, neo-Nazis, racism, and white supremacism. You've talked to George Stephanopoulos and Chuck Todd. But the President has had less than favorable things to say about other Fox News commentators like Shepard Smith earlier this month and Juan Williams last weekend. Since basically the start of the race, polling has shown fairly consistently that Democratic voters are most concerned with selecting a nominee who can win in November 2020.

Biden is now, as he has been for most of the previous year, a clear, even if it not wholly impressive, frontrunner.
