Fox News Calls Trump A Liar And Says His Attacks Are ‘Stale And Tiresome’

It looks like the relationship between Donald Trump and Fox News has reached its breaking point, and this time the media giant hit back and called the presidential candidate “stale and tiresome.”

On Wednesday morning Donald Trump threw a hissy fit all over Twitter and declared that he would be boycotting the network, because they are treating him “unfairly”:

According to Trump, in addition to his feud with Megyn Kelly, Bill O’Reilly added to his anger when the host was “negative” to him:



This is all very typical Trump stuff, but what is not ordinary is what happened next. Instead of taking the loudmouth candidate’s abuse, Fox hit back…hard. The network released a statement basically calling him a liar and explaining the real reason he is boycotting the website:

“At 11:45am today, we canceled Donald Trump’s scheduled appearance on The O’Reilly Factor on Thursday, which resulted in Mr. Trump’s subsequent tweet about his ‘boycott’ of FOX News.”

So the reason he is boycotting the site is not because they are being mean and unfair to him, it’s because they cancelled his apearance on the network. He’s butthurt, like an angry teenager who was told they couldn’t go to the movies with their friends.

That’s not all Fox said, they told Trump that they have had enough of his garbage and they don’t give a shit if he boycotts their network:

The press predictably jumped to cover his tweet, creating yet another distraction from any real issues that Mr. Trump might be questioned about. When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country.”


His attacks are stale and they are immature. He is a grown man who wants to run this country, but he is walking around and behaving like a child. Calling people names and whining is not the way to get things done. What is he going to do the first time a world leader disagrees with him, if he is president? Call them an idiot and tell Americans to boycott their country?

Give me a break.
