Trump tweeted that “Fox & Friends” is “by far the best of the morning political shows on television. It rightfully has BY FAR the highest ratings, not even close. Morning Psycho (Joe), who helped get me elected in 2016 by having me on (free) all the time, has nosedived, too Angry … ”

The president then aimed his animus at CNN’s morning coverage, reserving special criticism for Chris Cuomo, who was “rewarded with a now successful prime time slot, despite his massive failure in the morning.

CNN’s ratings have tanked ever since the release of the Mueller report and have reached an all-year low in April. From April 8-12, the network had an average audience of 690,000 people. In comparison, MSNBC averaged a total viewership of 1,600,000, viewers and Fox News averaged 2,438,000. Nighttime MSNBC host Rachel Maddox has also seen her viewers disappear.

Joe Scarborough, who was once a conservative commentator, reinvented himself as a severe anti-Trumper who has even asked whether the president’s lawyer and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has “dementia.”

The morning TV show host has also said Trump has mental health problems. (RELATED: Joe Scarborough Uses ‘The Simpsons’ To Mock Trump’s Shutdown Deal With The Democrats)
