Donald Trump ought to know he is in trouble as Fox News' Neil Cavuto annihilated him like no other. I have not even seen an afront like this on MSNBC. It was brutal.

Donald Trump had to feel the spears and arrows thrown at him by Fox News' Neil Cavuto. It was a call out not ever seen on Fox, MSNBC, or CNN. Huffington Post reported it as follows.
Fox News host Neil Cavuto issued one of his searing monologues on Thursday, criticizing President Donald Trump for focusing on the stock market’s positive performance while creating “a moral bust.”
″You are so darned focused on promoting a financial boom that you fail to see that you are the one creating this moral bust,” Cavuto said. “And we could all be the poorer for it.” ...
“You don’t prevent a constitutional crisis by threatening a financial one,” Cavuto said. “But, Mr. President, you guarantee both when your very actions and words create that crisis or make people think that you’re hiding one.”
The Fox News host then listed some of the president’s most “worrisome and tiresome” lies, calling out Trump for changing his story on controversies ranging from “hush money” payments to women who said they had affairs with him to his knowledge of a 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer in hopes of gathering damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
“You are right to say that some are out to get you,” Cavuto said to Trump. ”But oftentimes, Mr. President, the problem is you: what you say, and how you keep changing what you say.”
If Trump is losing Fox News to this extent, maybe they are starting to read the Tea Leaves. There has been a slow critical stance Fox News has begun taking on Donald Trump (here, here, here, here). It is not clear that Republicans in Congress have gotten it yet, but one can be sure that as Fox News goes, so do they in the long run.
