We seem to have entered a new dimension when it comes to the president, Fox and Friends, and an infinite loop.
After President Trump called Haiti, El Salvador and the entire continent of Africa "shit-hole countries" a Fox & Friends host called on Trump to take back his comments.
And then a not so strange thing happened. Trump did just that.
It was just before 6 a.m. when host Brian Kilmeade advised Trump that he needed to clarify his statement right away.
Poof, a short time later Trump sent out a tweet saying—
The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018
It's well known that Trump spends his mornings watching Fox and Friends, but it's pretty scary knowing an entertainment network has so much influence over the president's actions.
Trump has been tweeting about his "shithole" comments, which is the only story the media is covering today. That makes it very, very difficult to determine livetweeting. That said...— Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) January 12, 2018
Twitter wasn't thrilled.
When Brian Kilmeade, 2nd dumbest man on earth, is the voice of reason, that should alarm people.— Ann Slater (@Ann_Slater22) January 12, 2018
It was reported by Axios that Trump is starting his work days (when he's not golfing) later so he has more time to tweet and watch TV.
