Trump Just Threw Some Serious Shade At Fox News For Their ‘Very Strange’ Town Hall With Bernie Sanders

In a strange turn of events, it appears Donald Trump has turned on his devoted friends over at Fox News.

Bernie Sanders steamrolled his way through an hour-long town hall in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on the president’s favorite conservative network on Monday.

The feisty Vermont Senator fielded questions from hosts Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum and discussed his stance on healthcare and defense spending.

His policies resonated with the audience, who was on-board with the Democratic presidential candidate’s policies, and elicited cheers.

The conservative audience rallying for the Democratic socialist in an area who helped lead Trump to victory in 2016 was all a bit much for the president to bear.

On Tuesday, 45 tweeted that it was “weird” to see “Crazy Bernie” prominently featured on the right-wing channel.

He also questioned Fox’s decision to bring Democratic political strategist Donna Brazile to the fold as a contributor, a move that was met with resistance from loyal viewers.

“Not surprisingly, @BretBaier and the ‘audience’ was so smiley and nice. Very strange, and now we have @donnabrazile?”

He added in a follow-up tweet:

“Many Trump Fans & Signs were outside of the @FoxNews Studio last night in the now thriving (Thank you President Trump) Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, for the interview with Crazy Bernie Sanders.”

“Big complaints about not being let in-stuffed with Bernie supporters. What’s with @FoxNews?“

People were relishing in Trump’s confusion over his audience reacting favorably towards Sanders at the town hall.

This user saw Trump’s bullying of Sanders as a teachable moment.

It’s a headache trying to make heads or tails out of Trump’s logic.

Sympathies lie with the president, whose base is slowly coming to their senses and abandoning him.

This sounds like a great strategy. At some point, we all must enter the vipers’ pit.

Fox host Bret Baier kept the peace with this diplomatic tweet.

Politico noted that Sanders, who is polling as a front-runner in the Democratic presidential primaries, was one of the first among his fellow Democratic candidates to appear on the highest-rated cable channel.

The meeting ended with a touch of Sanders’ subtle humor.

“Thank you very much,” he told Baier and MacCallum, “and I hope I wasn’t too hard on you.”
