Donald Trump could not believe what he was watching.
It might have been the biggest surprise of Donald Trump’s political career.
And Fox News made a deal with Barack Obama that left Trump seeing red.
In the final days of the 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden’s team dispatched former President Barack Obama to rally voters in Florida after polls show Joe Biden losing ground with black men and Hispanic voters.
Obama drew a small crowd and launched into a falsehood-filled tirade about Donald Trump supposedly only paying $750 in taxes on two occasions.
“First year in the White House, [Trump] only paid $750 in taxes. In federal income taxes. $750. Can you imagine that? I mean, teachers pay more than that,” Obama ranted.
“You know, social workers pay more than that in taxes. Soldiers, folks in uniform pay more in taxes than that,” Obama fumed. “So how are you living large and you are not willing to do the right thing to make sure that we’re able to pay for quality schools for our kids? To provide veterans benefits for those who’ve earned them?”
This false attack as well as the fact that Fox News broadcast Obama’s rally and did not interject to fact-check Obama’s misleading claims infuriated President Trump.
“Now @FoxNews is playing Obama’s no crowd, fake speech for Biden, a man he could barely endorse because he couldn’t believe he won. Also, I PREPAID many Millions of Dollars in Taxes,” President Trump posted on social media.
In The New York Times’ story based on someone illegally leaking the President’s tax return to the Times, the fake news reporters at the Times even noted that Trump paid $5.2 million dollars in taxes in 2016 and 2017 that were “rolled forward to cover potential taxes in future years” which is exactly what President Trump said when he stated that he “prepaid” his taxes.
President Trump also wrote on social media that the biggest difference between the 2016 and 2020 campaign was how Fox News chose to cover each election.
“The biggest difference between now and 2016 is @FoxNews. They are a whole different deal. Despite this, our campaign is doing much better, with bigger crowds and even more (much!) enthusiasm, than we had in 2016. Big Debate & SCOTUS Win! Real Polls have us winning everywhere!” President Trump posted on Twitter.
What President Trump meant is that in 2016, Fox News – as well as fake news CNN and MSNBC – would carry all of Trump’s speeches live.
It would be expected that fake news CNN and MSNBC would no longer carry Trump’s rallies in 2020 because they only want viewers to get the news through those network’s left-wing framing and they don’t want the President speaking directly to their viewers or else the audience might find some of Trump’s message appealing.
Fox News also won’t carry the President’s speeches live.
But now they will carry Barack Obama’s campaign events for Joe Biden.
And it is causing more Fox News viewers than just the President to wonder what is going on.
