Perhaps the Republican Party will be the next to turn, but for now political observers are surprised that Fox News host Neil Cavuto had some harsh words for Donald Trump, what she said on Thursday: “Mr. President, you stink.”
FOX News Channel (FNC) is a 24-hour cable television channel dedicated to influencing news coverage and political opinion developed as a propaganda outlet to benefit the Republican Party.
