President Donald Trump took to Twitter Tuesday afternoon to lash out at Fox News after the network cut into its regular programming to air former President Barack Obama’s rally for Democratic nominee Joe Biden in Orlando, Florida.
As conservative pundit Molly Hemingway was speaking on behalf of Trump, Fox News Harris Faulkner interrupted to air Obama’s outdoor rally.
“Now @FoxNews is playing Obama’s no crowd, fake speech for Biden, a man he could barely endorse because he couldn’t believe he won,” Trump falsely claimed on Twitter.
“Also, I PREPAID many Millions of Dollars in Taxes,” Trump raged.

Fox News gave Obama more than 30 minutes of airtime to rip into the current president.
Obama slammed Trump for being “jealous of COVID’s media coverage” and also hit the president for having not one, but two COVID-19 outbreaks in the White House.

Obama slams Trump's COVID response:
"You can't think of anything you might be doing differently? Like, maybe you shouldn't have gotten on TV and suggested we might inject bleach to cure COVID?" pic.twitter.com/eDsUR2wXH4
