Remember how last weekend on Fox & Friends, Geraldo Rivera remarked upon how interesting it will be to see how Fox News as a whole deals with being President Trump‘s “venue of choice”?
Well, this morning, Fox & Friends Weekend covered the President’s ongoing feud with CNN and at one point invited viewers to come up with a “better nickname” for the network than the President’s brand-new one:
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 1, 2017
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 2, 2017
Pete Hegseth said this morning that Trump is testing out “a new nickname for fake news CNN.”
CNN’s Brian Stelter picked up on that comment, tweeted about it, and then Hegseth responded:

Real news. https://t.co/aMsKXEJ7q8

Hegseth also referred to CNN as the “epicenter of the resistance” pretending to represent the middle before adding the following:
“If you have a better nickname for CNN than #FakeNewsCNN or #FraudNewsCNN, let us know… We would love to hear what you think.”
This segment, by the way, came before Trump’s newest anti-CNN tweet featuring that video.
