Donald Trump and Fox News Are Feuding

Terrible news for those who ship Donald Trump and Fox News — so mainly Sean Hannity and my Step-Uncle Fred. The “president” and the conservative news channel are usually busy jerking each other off, but there seems to be trouble in paradise, as Trump targeted Fox News in one of his latest Twitter tantrums. Say it ain’t so!

Trump’s Twitter tirade began with a cute lil’ meltdown over the fact that Fox News was covering the 2020 Democratic Election without hate speech. His anger was directed at host Sandra Smith, who he criticized for going too easy on DNC Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa during an interview. Then, his tweet spiraled into a barely legible word vomit with random, unnecessary capitalization that somehow brings up Hillary Clinton into it. Naturally.

Here are the first two tweets:

But Trump didn’t stop there. Trump never stops there. Trump couldn’t point out “there” on a map if it was right in front of him and clearly marked “there” in bold, italicized, underlined letters. Instead, he kept ranting, and eventually landed on the conclusion that “Fox isn’t working for us anymore.”

Again, this tweet is riddled with grammatically incorrect capitalization, but let’s move beyond that and focus on the closing statement here. Donald Trump thinks Fox is supposed to be working for him. As in, they are supposed to deliver completely biased news, never hold him accountable, and always own the libs, no matter what. So like, he legit thinks Fox is his propaganda machine.

Reading Trump’s tweets feels like a joke — because how could anyone take this sh*t seriously — but it is actually really scary to see the president publicly imply that a news channel should be working for him, and then publicly shame them for working against him by simply covering Democratic news.

Does this mean Donald Trump and Fox News are breaking up? I’m not sure this is the end, but it may be the beginning of the end. It is, at least, a warning of the obvious to Fox News: Trump’s loyalty will disappear the second he decides he doesn’t need or want you anymore. If you think Trump won’t turn on you the second it’s convenient for him or the second he feels like you aren’t giving him enough unadulterated admiration…think again, b*tch!!!

Take note, Sean Hannity. And Step-Uncle Fred.

UPDATE, August 30: Fox News host Neil Cavuto responded to the president’s tweets on his show last night.

“All right, well, I think the president watches Fox. I also think he is getting sick of Fox, which is weird, because I think he gets pretty fair coverage at Fox,” he said, adding that the president has made clear that “to fact-check him is to be all but dead to him and his legion of supporters who let me know, in no uncertain terms, I am either with him totally or I am a ‘Never Trumper’ fully.”

He went on: “First of all, Mr. President, we don’t work for you. I don’t work for you. My job is to cover you not fawn over you or rip you, just report on you… My job, Mr. President our job here is to keep scores, not settle scores.”

Fox’s New Show ‘Paradise Hotel’ Is Your Summer Reality TV Fix

I feel like people always hate on summer TV shows, but if you ask me, they’re some of the best ones out there. Personally, I like my summer shows to echo my summer activity, which consists of drinking in a tropical locale with plenty of hot singles my age. (Okay, so maybe I just described my recurring dream, don’t @ me.) In any case, there’s a new show on Fox, from the producers of The Bachelor and Jersey Shore, that’s going to be your go-to summer show. It’s called Paradise Hotel, and it’s different than anything out there right now.

Paradise Hotel has all the elements that make up a great reality TV show—sexy singles, tropical location, and big drama. So what makes Paradise Hotel better than anything currently on TV? It’s all about strategy. This show is a game, for love or money. And the rules are simple: you either hook up or check out. Game on!

So here’s the deal. Paradise Hotel is an unscripted dating competition hosted by Kristin Cavallari (so perfect) in which sexy singles looking for love (not near you) check into an exclusive, gorgeous tropical resort. There will be fun. There will be sun. There will be cocktails. There will be flirtation. There will be romance. But here’s the catch: they can’t all stay in paradise. At the end of every week, someone will get sent home. The contestants will try to remain in paradise for as long as they can by pairing up. Whoever doesn’t have a roommate at the end of each week goes home, and a new guest will arrive in Paradise to shake things up. One week there will be more men, the next week more women. Nobody is safe!

But are the contestants playing for love or the $250,000 cash prize? It’s hard to say, given that there is a lot at stake for anyone who makes it to the end. I can’t tell you what will happen, because even I don’t know, but I can tell you that each week, there will be dates, challenges, and of course, twists you’re not going to see coming. Like, even bigger than jumping a fence.

Speaking of twists, there’s already one huge one that’s been announced: Paradise Hotel viewers can play along at home by using social media to try to influence what happens on screen, including deciding who gets to check into the hotel. Cool, so like, even though I’m not hot enough to get cast on a reality show, I can still live vicariously through everybody and try to set up my faves with their perfect matches. Bet. Sure beats sitting at home week after week, watching my fantasy bracket deteriorate.

Starting Thursday, May 9 at 8pm with a two-hour premiere event, Paradise Hotel will be airing three times a week. Three! Well, that’s my entire week of TV programming, already picked out. And even better, the Thursday episodes are live and two hours. Honestly, I love when other people do the work of making my plans for me. Now I have a built-in excuse to cancel plans, sorry! So join me, Kristin Cavallari, and the cast of Paradise Hotel in tuning in TONIGHT, May 9, at 8pm on Fox for the two-hour premiere, and then on Mondays and Wednesdays at 9pm and Thursdays at 8pm.
