"Everyone Thinks They're Going to Sell": Hellfire at Fox as Hannity Mulls Leaving
By Gabriel Sherman

Donald Trump's alliance with Fox News has been one of the few constants throughout his shambolic presidency. But in recent days, that bond has shown signs of fraying. On Sunday morning, Trump criticized Fox after it suspended Judge Jeanine Pirro for delivering an offensive monologue questioning Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's patriotism. Later in the day, Trump lashed out at Fox journalists, tweeting: "Were @FoxNews weekend anchors, @ArthelNeville and @LelandVittert, trained by CNN prior to their ratings collapse? In any event, that's where they should be working, along with their lowest rated anchor, Shepard Smith!" He implored Fox to "Keep fighting for Tucker"—Media Matters had uncovered a series of offensive statements Tucker Carlson had made while calling in to Bubba the Love Sponge's radio show—"and fight hard for @JudgeJeanine."
