Trump Lashed Out at Fox News for Reporting on the Reality of Impeachment—Again

This Trump-Fox quarrel keeps getting dumber. We can’t look away?

This morning, Mother Jones made the wrong prediction in a headline. We thought Trump would stick his fingers in his ears about a new Fox News poll showing most Americans supported impeachment, and agreed with the articles of impeachment about to hit the House on Wednesday. Our headline: Here’s a Fox News Poll Trump Definitely Won’t Be Tweeting About Today.

But, as is true of all things Trump and “America” in general, it’s best to not make predictions. Especially during this icky and very public Trump-Fox relationship quagmire. (Last night, he likened his once-beloved Fox News to “Commiecast MSNBC & Fake News CNN.”) Trump’s doing what he does best: letting it all hang out.

We stand corrected. There is no reporting Trump won’t call wrong if it’s bad for him:

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
