Trump Blasts Fox News for Negative Polls, ‘Fake News’ Anchor Bret Baier: ‘Something Weird Going On’
President Donald Trump went after Fox News Monday night, this time going after the network’s “bad” polls and even calling anchor Bret Baier “fake news.”
Trump said there’s “something weird going on at Fox,” after new polls from the network showed that half of Americans support impeachment:
.@FoxNews Polls are always bad for me. They were against Crooked Hillary also. Something weird going on at Fox. Our polls show us leading in all 17 Swing States. For the record, I didn’t spend 30 hours with @abcnews, but rather a tiny fraction of that. More Fake News @BretBaier

Trump appears to have been set off watching Special Report Monday night. Not only did Bret Baier cover the “bad” polls on air, but he and Howard Kurtz specifically discussed the ABC News interview. Baier remarked it was amazing to see Trump “spend 30 hours with ABC News” — a remark Trump deigned “fake news.”
Trump called out Baier for sharing “fake news” on that score.
