President Trump went after morning news shows Thursday, touting Fox News’ ratings while slamming MSNBC and CNN.

Mr. Trump praised Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” for “blowing away the competition” in the early morning time slot.

He called “Morning Joe” a “dead show” and also picked on CNN, saying they’re failing because of “too much hate and inaccurately reported stories.”

TV Newswer released the ratings of each network’s shows that air in the 6 to 9 a.m. time block. The report noted that “Fox & Friends” finished July with the highest ratings for the 201st month in a row with nearly 1.5 million total viewers.

MSNBC came in second with just over a million viewers, and CNN trailed with 504,00 viewers.
