Fox News' Brit Hume Hits Donald Trump With The Painful Truth About His Coronavirus Briefings

The conservative network's senior political analyst slammed the president's latest Twitter tantrum as "ridiculous."

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume pulled no punches on Thursday as he called out President Donald Trump’s latest Twitter tantrum as “ridiculous.”

Trump lashed out at The Wall Street Journal editorial board after it denounced his conduct at daily White House coronavirus task force briefings and urged him to quit appearing at them:

Hume, however, wasn’t having it.

“This is a ridiculous tweet,” he fired back on Twitter.

“He could get his views across without bragging, endlessly repeating himself, and getting into petty squabbles with the junior varsity players in the WH press corps,” Hume added. “And he could stop talking much sooner to give Pence, Fauci, Birx and Giroir more time.”

Hume garnered headlines last month for failing to close tabs on his internet browser before sharing a screenshot on social media.

He has called out Trump’s criticism of Fox News on multiple other occasions, unlike some of his colleagues at the widely watched conservative network.
