The entire Trump family has been so abused by our political-media establishment, it really is unprecedented, as Fox News has once again demonstrated.
According to Mediaite, insiders at the network have warned Donald Trump Jr. that he should “expect retaliation” after he was critical of Fox News’ hasty decision to part ways with their cash cow and top-rated host, Tucker Carlson.
Trump Jr. also accused Fox of “censorship” on the Monday edition of the Steak For Breakfast Podcast, saying, “I’ve been watching the censorship happening even in conservative mainstream media. I mean, you saw what sort of Fox did to Tucker Carlson, last week and the week before that, it was Dan Bongino and, you know, the people who would actually question some of that narrative.”
“I’ve been at sort of outspoken America First and I used to be on Fox 3, 4, 5, 6, 10 times a week. I haven’t been on in nine months. Not a call, not an invite, not anything. And so I understand what it, what it appears like they’re trying to do to the America First movement. You know, Tucker was another one of those voices,” Trump Jr. added.
He then took to Twitter on Wednesday to blast the network again.
Have heard from a few of my friends at Fox News that the leftist executives running things there are pissed at me for calling them out over firing Tucker and to “expect retaliation."
A lot of good people still work at Fox, but their RINO leadership is at war with conservatives!

“Have heard from a few of my friends at Fox News that the leftist executives running things there are pissed at me for calling them out over firing Tucker and to ‘expect retaliation,’” Trump Jr. wrote.
“A lot of good people still work at Fox, but their RINO leadership is at war with conservatives!” he added.
The ‘RINO leadership’ he mentioned is most likely a dig at former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who took a position as a Fox News board member after he left Congress and was reportedly a driving force behind the scenes pushing Fox to “move on” from former President Donald Trump after he claimed the 2020 election was stolen from him.
