On Friday, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah totally trolled FOX News for what it sees as a babysitting approach to interviewing Donald Trump. The show tweeted the "Fox News Guide to Nailing a Trump Interview," offering three steps to soft peddle an interview with the President. Each step was accompanied by a series of FOX News clips as examples of how to babysit Trump.
Step 1 — Take A Softer Approach: Your job isn't to hold the president accountable, it's to hold his hand.

Step 2 — Flattery Will Get You Everywhere: The president knows he's always right, but he needs to know that YOU know that.
Step 3 — Help Out! Just because you have all the questions doesn't mean he needs to have all the answers.
They also noted that this technique works very well for FOX News, which has had far more interviews with Trump than any other news outlet.
Still not convinced? Fox News has scored 19 interviews with President Trump — over 3x the number of all the other big news networks combined.— The Daily Show (@TheDailyShow) January 26, 2018
Congrats @seanhannity @SteveDoocy @LouDobbs @IngrahamAngle @JudgeJeanine @JesseBWatters @PeteHegseth @MariaBartiromo!
Twitter users were quick to offer other ideas for scoring an interview with Trump.
Mostly, though, there was a lot of vomiting going on.
These are very difficult to watch. I had to rush 4 times to the bathroom to vomit. I'm okay now.— Barend Hamm PhD (@Bareham2016) January 26, 2018
Does anyone else feel the need to vomit when they hear these clips? They may as well just get on their knees, unzip his pants, and chow down!— Lucian Mclemore (@lucianmac50) January 26, 2018
Omg those so called journalists make me want to puke— Vibrantankles (@Vibrantankles) January 27, 2018
And a lot of shade being thrown at Piers Morgan.
In case FOX News runs out of marshmallows.
