There was no way they could have gotten away after doing this…
President Donald Trump went after Fox News in a Twitter thread claiming that the pollsters of the network “suck” and that Fox was “so different than it used to be.”
“From the day I announced I was running for President, I have NEVER had a good @FoxNews Poll. Whoever their Pollster is, they suck. But @FoxNews is also much different than it used to be in the good old days,” Trump said.
“With people like Andrew Napolitano, who wanted to be a Supreme……Court Justice & I turned him down (he’s been terrible ever since), Shep Smith, @donnabrazile (who gave Crooked Hillary the debate questions & got fired from @CNN), & others, @FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore.”
“It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I’m President!” he added.

Trump’s tweets came after a poll released by Fox News showing that 51 percent of Americans expected him to be impeached and removed.
The president and Fox are often regarded in the media world as allies, but for poor polling he had publicly attacked the organization. He said the polling of the network have “always been terrible” to him in July.
Also this week, Fox News fired Trey Gowdy after he briefed the president on legal issues.
Impeachment talk has consumed Washington after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last month declared an investigation into impeachment against Trump because of his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during which he requested him to investigate Hunter Biden for alleged corruption.
Former vice president Joe Biden openly called for Trump’s impeachment this week.
