Thursday morning, President Trump tweeted “@FoxNews daytime ratings have completely collapsed. Weekend daytime even WORSE. Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there. They forgot the Golden Goose. The biggest difference between the 2016 Election, and 2020, was @FoxNews!”

Trump’s tweet comes after a number of decisions by Fox News infuriated supporters of the President.
Perhaps the largest was Fox News decision desk director Arnon Mishkin deciding to call Arizona for Biden election night before any other new organization.
After his call, the following days, Biden’s lead continued to shrink to under half a percent.
In addition, the Fox News decision desk estimate that Democrats would pick up 5 House seats turned out to be laughably incorrect.

In another incident, Fox News host Sandra Smith appeared to mock a Trump supporter guest who questioned their election call for Biden.
