Trump Unleashes Easter Sunday Rage Tweets Attacking Fox News, Retweeting “#FireFauci”

President Donald Trump spent several hours on Easter Sunday firing off a barrage of attacks on Twitter targeting Fox News, NBC’s Chuck Todd and retweeting a call to fire Infectious Disease Expert Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Trump ripped into Fox News anchor Chris Wallace on Sunday afternoon, calling the “Fox News Sunday” host a “Mike Wallace wannabe,” a reference to Wallace’s late father.

“Just watched Mike Wallace wannabe, Chris Wallace, on @FoxNews,” Trump tweeted, before attacking NBC News host Chuck Todd. “I am now convinced that he is even worse than Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd of Meet the Press(please!), or the people over at Deface the Nation.”

“What the hell is happening to @FoxNews,” he added. “It’s a whole new ballgame over there!”

A few hours later, Trump retweeted failed Congressional candidate DeAnna Lorraine’s call to “#FireFauci” after the country’s top medical expert on the coronavirus pandemic and a member of the president’s coronavirus task force, said Sunday that the pandemic might not have been as bad right now if preventative measures were put in place faster.

“I mean, obviously, you could logically say that if you had a process that was ongoing and you started mitigation earlier, you could have saved lives,” Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” when asked if social distancing and stay-at-home measures could have prevented deaths had they been put in place in February, instead of mid-March.

“Obviously, no one is going to deny that. But what goes into those decisions is complicated,” added Fauci, who is a key member of the Trump administration’s coronavirus task force. “But you’re right, I mean, obviously, if we had right from the very beginning shut everything down, it may have been a little bit different. But there was a lot of pushback about shutting things down back then.”

In response to the interview, Lorraine tweeted: “Fauci is now saying that had Trump listened to the medical experts earlier he could’ve saved more lives. Fauci was telling people on February 29th that there was nothing to worry about and it posed no threat to the US public at large. Time to #FireFauci…”

Trump retweeted Loarraine’s remarks, adding: “Sorry Fake News, it’s all on tape. I banned China long before people spoke up. Thank you
@OANN.”

Trump also lashed out at all members of the media, calling them the “Fake News Opposition Party” and the “corrupt media.”
