Fox Failed Trump


When I go to sleep at night, I reluctantly relinquish control of the TV remote.  By then, that poor piece of plastic is exhausted, breathing heavy, and sweating profusely.  That’s because it has been worked so hard — after all, every commercial break requires a channel change.

In the never ending search for a balanced view, I rotate between Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and Newsy.  At each commercial break, the remote rotates to the next channel.

Sadly, it has been reported that President Trump watches only Fox News.  If so, Fox has not served the President well, because it’s perspective has been that Democrats are just sore losers and are just being mean to the President.  My suspicion is that the President still doesn’t know how much trouble he faces, because Fox won’t tell him.

In March of 2017, I predicted the President would not complete his term.  That was neither a partisan comment nor a happy one.  I just know that no swashbuckler could survive under a microscope for long.  Now, I’ve learned his legal troubles might actually increase when he leaves office.  He may feel trapped.  Imagine being trapped in the White House.  Frankly, I feel sorry for any trapped animal, including a Presidential one.  Fox failed the President by whitewashing the severity of his troubles.
