Trump flips out after being criticized on the network for taking the drug
hydroxychloroquine, which has not been approved for the coronavirus.

President Donald Trump says he’s had it with Fox News after host Neil Cavuto
criticized him for taking the drug hydroxychloroquine to prevent becoming
infected with the coronavirus.

The anti-malaria drug has not been approved for the treatment or prevention of
COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, but it has become a favorite
talking-point in conservative media.

Trump on Monday claimed he has been taking it after at least two people in the
White House were diagnosed with the coronavirus infection.

But Cavuto warned viewers not to emulate the president.

“If you are in a risky population here, and you are taking this as a
preventative treatment to ward off the virus ... it will kill you,” Cavuto said.
“I cannot stress this enough: This will kill you.”

While many Fox News hosts routinely lavish praise on the president ¯ and host
Laura Ingraham has been one of the biggest media proponents of taking
hydroxychloroquine ¯ the comments from Cavuto set Trump off.

He claimed on Twitter that he was ready to change the channel:

***@FoxNews is no longer the same. We miss the great Roger Ailes. You have more
anti-Trump people, by far, than ever before. Looking for a new outlet!

Trump’s comments also included praise for Roger Ailes, the late Fox News CEO who
left the network after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment.

Despite that history, Ailes served as an adviser to Trump during the 2016
presidential campaign.

Trump’s anger at the network drew a sharp response from his critics:

Democratically elected presidents don’t “look for a new outlet,” they don’t run
propaganda machines. The press in this country is supposed to be free &
independent & no more a tool of the presidency that the Justice Department is
supposed to be.

Oooh, a double whammy. She made him look like the Coyote in the Road
Runner cartoons after a stick of dynamite blew up in his hand.
