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

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:

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
