Neil Cavuto: Now CNN Knows How Fox News Has Felt for Past 8 Years

Fox’s Neil Cavuto today reacted to Donald Trump‘s feud with CNN by asking CNN if they now understand how Fox has felt the past eight years.

Trump scolded CNN’s Jim Acosta during a heated back-and-forth yesterday and said CNN was “fake news.” Acosta said incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer warned him against doing that again.

Cavuto asked today, “How does it feel to be dismissed, or worse, ignored? How does it feel when your feelings are hurt, when your reporters are singled out, and you’re treated unfairly and unkindly, even rudely?”

He ran a montage of President Obama taking shot after shot at Fox, even bringing up that major controversy concerning the DOJ and Fox’s own reporter James Rosen.

He told CNN they’re “experiencing what we have been living” and that no one there ever came to Fox’s defense.

For the record, CNN’s Jake Tapper has in the past publicly defended Fox News when targeted by the Obama administration (something Tapper himself pointed out last night).

Cavuto continued:

“Isn’t it obnoxious and unfair how some celebrate your plight? Kind of feels like the way you celebrated ours, doesn’t it? They say payback’s a bitch. If only you would take a moment to rewind the tape and see the shoe was on the other foot. Or am I confusing it with the one now kicking you in the ass?”
