On Monday, Donald Trump unleashed a crazy-time rant on Twitter in which he claimed that he is our ‘favorite president’ then declared that all networks, with the exception of Fox News, are fake. The former reality show star then called for a contest to show who deserves the first “FAKE NEWS TROPHY.”
Trump’s favorite pollster asked that question and Trump is really going to hate the results.
The conservative-leaning Rasmussen found that a plurality of Americans in a new poll think that Fox News deserves the first “Fake News Trophy.”
The new poll found that 40 percent of respondents think Fox News should get the Fake News Trophy, which, as we mentioned, was suggested by Donald Trump. Be careful what you wish for, amirite?
CNN came in second place, receiving 25 percent support for the ‘trophy.’
Then came MSNBC with 9 percent. ABC, CBS, and NCB all received less than 5 percent support for the “Fake News Trophy,” according to The Hill.
“We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me),” Trump tweeted on Monday.
“They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!” he added.
But Fox News was not excluded in this poll.
In August, Rasmussen found that twice as many Americans “strongly disapprove” of Trump’s job performance compared to those who “strongly approve.”
Trump is rated as the least popular president in the history of polling but he never brings up his ratings. He will bring up the NFL’s, though. Or the ‘failing’ New York Times, which contrary to his claims, the newspaper’s subscriptions are through the roof.
Just yesterday, Trump tweeted out some fake news videos, so he deserves an award as the first Fake News President.
