So much for it being a Sunday. You know, the Lord’s day?
Everything this president does is under a microscope. They will stop at nothing to bring each and every little thing they find to light. Then they stick it in and break it off.
But, before you go any further, let’s take a few steps back and remember how former President Barack Obama handled media criticism from Fox News.
Time and time again, Obama used the bully pulpit to blame Fox News for his losses, inadequacies or overall bad days …but the mainstream media didn’t come alongside Fox like they are rallying around Juan Williams.
Remember when Obama was upset with Bill O’Reilly? Townhall does.
During a pre-Super Bowl interview, President Obama suggested Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly was being unfair for asking questions about ObamaCare’s shortcomings, the IRS scandal and Benghazi.
Because, as Obama’s longtime adviser Valerie Jarrett said in a recent CNN interview, “The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself…” Yes, she really said that.
Oh and this swipe at Fox was GOLDEN!
President Obama insisted ObamaCare is “working pretty well in the real world” despite it being a “fanged threat to freedom on Fox News” in a speech at Northwestern University.
Nevermind the painful costs it’s incurring now, and the fact that Democrats can’t defend it to save Obama’s legacy.
Here is how it all started today with President Trump and Juan Williams.
The Hill reports:
Williams, who is a recurring co-host of the Fox News show “The Five” and a columnist for The Hill, has been a vocal critic of Trump, including during a “Fox News Sunday” panel that reaired at 2 pm ET, just an hour before the president’s tweet.
During that segment, Williams called Trump’s approach to China on trade “brutish,” according to Mediaite.
“It’s not just Democrats who say, ‘Hey, this guy is inartful.’ The Wall Street Journal” has said that — he then attacked The Wall Street Journal at a rally this week,” he said.
“But I think that what you see here is that Trump’s unpredictability, Dana, then risks global recession, and you can do that. I mean, clearly, unpredictability is something that really scares Wall Street, because it depresses the likelihood of capital investment, which is necessary for stock growth,” he added.
Here is the President’s tweet and he didn’t hold back.
Juan Williams at @FoxNews is so pathetic, and yet when he met me in the Fox Building lobby, he couldn’t have been nicer as he asked me to take a picture of him and me for his family. Yet he is always nasty and wrong!

Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh was not happy when the President lashed out at Juan Williams.
Oh look…another day, another ugly personal attack on an American citizen from the POTUS.@TheJuanWilliams is a good man and a great American. Donald Trump is neither.
This is the kind of shit from this President that most Americans are so tired of. https://t.co/dkKHcj5QPD

The President’s supporters came out to defend him in droves.
This is the same gracious, good humored, and respectful Juan Williams that said ALL Republicans deserved to be demonized.

And we can all relate to this tweet …. right?
@TheFive I know Fox News pride itself on being ” Fair and Balance” but Juan Williams, really. I’m sick of the left always demonizing President Trump and Juan Williams actually sounds like the fake news media and the demeaning left. I think you folks can do better than Juan.

Most of America has had enough of the dog and pony show that goes on each and every day against this President. Imagine the successes this country could be seeing if the leftist in this nation would cease their ways and let this man do the job he was elected to do.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
