Trump quotes Fox host Tucker Carlson in bizarre attack on American media

For some unknown reason, President Donald Trump decided it would be a good idea to quote Fox News hack Tucker Carlson in his latest attack on the news media he hates so much.

In two tweets posted Monday evening, Trump quoted a line from Carlson’s show, which had just aired:

And of course there’s the ubiquitous slam of the Washington Post, owned by Jeff Bezos, who just so happens to be the richest man in the world, no doubt a galling fact for fake billionaire Donald Trump.

Reaction on Twitter was immediate and unforgiving:
