President Trump once again took aim at Fox News on Saturday, claiming that the network’s top-rated shows and those with the highest cable ratings are the ones that are “fair (or great)” to him.
Trump went on to congratulate his friend and Fox News opinion host Sean Hannity for being the “number one shoe[sic] on Cable Television!”
“Has anyone noticed that the top shows on @foxnews and cable ratings are those that are Fair (or great) to your favorite President, me! Congratulations to @seanhannity for being the number one shoe on Cable Television!” he tweeted, congratulating Hannity.
Trump later deleted the original tweet and posted a tweet correcting his typo, changing “shoe” to “show.”

Trump has repeatedly gone after the network in recent weeks after one of its polls showed him behind some of his 2020 Democratic opponents.
Trump recently said the “HOPELESS & CLUELESS” network is “only getting worse” and is not what it “used to be” after Fox announced it had hired former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile as a contributor.
Trump’s “shoe” typo predictably sparked myriad mocking responses on Twitter:
Here is the original tweet, wherein President Stupid congratulated Host Stupid on having the number one shoe.

🤣Hannity may be the number one “shoe” watched by the gunk that sticks to the bottom of its sole.

So, these aren’t your favorite shoes anymore? pic.twitter.com/z360Ezncq8

Our guess is people are more concerned about the impending hurricane than your favorite shoe. https://t.co/wn9upaboX6

He may be the number one shoe, but Sean Hannity has no sole.

Oh well it's just a shoe … a shoe with toilet paper on it …
