Trump attacks Fox’s Neil Cavuto because his guest said mean things: ‘Give him the same treatment as Shepard Smith’

President Donald Trump is not happy with Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto and had some choice words for him Friday after Cavuto’s guest, A. B. Stoddard, compared presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg‘s widely panned performance to some of Trump’s 2016 debate performances.

“I think that Donald Trump had disastrous debate performances,” Stoddard told Cavuto. “Many answers were so cringeworthy, you just couldn’t believe he was standing on the stage.”

That set Trump off and he mocked Cavuto’s “very bad ratings” and “fake guests,” Mediaite reports.

“So @TeamCavuto has very bad ratings on @FoxNews with his Fake guests like A.B. Stoddard and others that still haven’t figured it all out,” he posted on Twitter. “Will he get the same treatment as his friend Shepherd Smith, who also suffered from the ratings drought?”

This is not the first time Trump has assailed Cavuto, having done so just the day before.

“Could somebody @FoxNews please explain to Trump-hater A.B. Stoddard (zero talent!) and @TeamCavuto that I won every one of my debates, from beginning to end,” Trump tweeted. “Check the polls taken immediately after the debates. The debates got me elected. Must be Fox Board member Paul Ryan!” (Ryan joined the board of the Fox Corporation in 2019.)

Apparently not content to just browbeat Cavuto and his network on Twitter, Trump also sounded off at his campaign rally in Colorado Springs Thursday.

“They had a crazy person on today, on one of the Fox shows,” he said. “Fox doesn’t treat us the way they used to. Their loser shows are the ones that don’t like Trump.”

“How’s Shep Smith doing by the way?” (Smith left the network in October.)

As for Cavuto’s purportedly “bad ratings,” Nielsen’s data show his show is performing solidly in February, right behind MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show. His weekend Fox News show, Cavuto Live is rated No. 1 across the networks.
