Friendly Fire? Even Laura Ingraham Is Telling Trump to Cool It With Twitter

Laura Ingraham cautioned President Donald Trump on his Twitter habit on Fox & Friends, in light of the president’s fresh tweets Tuesday morning.

Trump tweeted during the Fox segment that “The FAKE MSM” is trying to stop him from using “Social Media”:

Fox & Friends anchor Ainsley Earhardt checked her phone, telling Ingraham “the president just tweeted,” before asking for her response.

“Well I think he has an enormous following, and when he has a point to make that is salient and which pulls us away from the verbiage of the day, cuts right through, he can be very effective,” Ingraham said. “They don’t like that, that’s for sure,” presumably referring to the media.

But Ingraham made sure to point out that off-the-cuff tweeting is not ideal in light of the current federal investigation: “The only caveat I would throw to that is tweeting out anything about the investigation that’s ongoing, I do not think that will help Donald Trump.”

“I think that if I were giving people advice in the White House, I’d say you’re not going to win the investigation regarding James Comey in the press,” she added.

“You’re not going to win that through tweeting, you’re going to win that through, you know, smart organization of your legal team and a great strategy. But you’re not going to win it through the Twitter war.”
