Trump Praises Fox News and Mocks CNN, MSNBC’s ‘Tanked’ Ratings After Mueller Report

President Donald Trump continued his victory lap against the mainstream media in light of Robert Mueller finding no evidence of him colluding with Russia, tweeting tonight that “ratings of CNN & MSNBC tanked” after the summary release of the special counsel’s report.

“The Fake News Media has lost tremendous credibility with its corrupt coverage of the illegal Democrat Witch Hunt of your all time favorite duly elected President, me!” Trump tweeted tonight. “T.V. ratings of CNN & MSNBC tanked last night after seeing the Mueller Report statement. @FoxNews up BIG!”

In his posts prior to that tweet, Trump shared numerous Fox News clips and quotes from the network’s coverage, including two interviews from Fox Business host Lou Dobbs and a quote from The Federalist’s Sean Davis during an appearance on Tucker Carlson‘s show.
