Mr. Trump cares about numbers, a lot. He famously started off his presidency by claiming he had the largest inauguration of any president before him and then had his press secretary at the time, Sean Spicer, to back him up as we were ushered into four years of pointless lies. Trump likes numbers so much that he likely bases his own self worth off of them. So, it would be a shame if someone pointed out that one of his “Stop The Steal” rally’s only attracted a measly four people.
This particular gathering took place outside of Fox News’ D.C. headquarters. The four individuals in question, mostly unmasked and of course not socially distanced, seemed to have a bone to pick with Fox News, in particular Neal Cavuto. One of the people that attended held a “Stop the Neal” sign, probably unhappy that this particular host has been outspoken in his criticisms about Donald Trump in the past, so much so that he even drew the ire of the Orange Loser-in-Chief in a furious post on Twitter.
“… I don’t want to win for myself, I only want to win for the people. The New @FoxNews is letting millions of GREAT people down! We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!” Trump ranted.
Cavuto offered back, “First of all Mr. President, we don’t work for you, I don’t work for you. My job is to cover you, not fawn over you or rip you, just report on you. Call balls and strikes on you. My job, Mr. President, our job here is to keep the scores, not settle the scores.” Cavuto must not have gotten the memo because fawning over Trump is exactly what a lot of the other Fox News programs do, its no wonder he has these four people miffed.
And while he has flirted with making his own news network, and rather enjoys the even further right One America News Network, he still relies heavily on the massive viewership of Fox.
While Trump still has a few allies left on Fox News, most seem to be gradually accepting the fact that Joe Biden has won, and Trump has been sorely defeated. The string of lawsuits are not going to hold, his cries of election fraud are just conspiracy theories repeated to keep him in power, and his time is over.
Four people who decided that yelling at their television set wasn’t good enough is all Donald Trump can seem to garner for support. He may have gotten 72 million votes, but it looks like most of those have accepted our next president and in turn accepted that our democratic process worked exactly as it is supposed to work.
Sorry, Cavuto*. Fox rally organizer denies this is a low energy turnout.
