Ever have one of those moments when you read a tweet and think to yourself, ‘Wow, what an as*hole?’
That happened to this editor when she came across this tweet from CNN political analyst, Joe Lockhart:
When this is all over and we properly examine what was done right and what was done wrong I hope we can have an honest national conversation on the toxic effect of Fox News. They are a critical instrument of Trump and his approach to the crisis.

Sure, Joe, blame Fox News.
And of course, Trump.
That’s been so very helpful.
We know. You police staters are all the same.

FOX Rocks CNN is a joke! Lol. Just watch, look at the difference, really look; FOX is informative, uplifting and fun! They laugh. They love, they mention God 🙂
CNN dark and miserable and hateful. I can't watch it, too much hate.

Dude works for CNN, blames Fox News.
What a pile of crap. You should ALL shut up & just run the Task Force pressers. Full of experts with decades of service & experience who actually know what they are talking about & care about the safety of Americans, not petty political BS.

CNN has been going after Fox News for years, on-air & on social media. Your network is currently doing it in the midst of a national health emergency.
So, sure. Of course you can have a conversation about their coverage post-virus, but I don’t think you can call it “honest.”

Yes, calling the network you hate to account is the really coming together moment we all need.

So many Lefty journalists need to be held responsible for their horribly unethical behavior through this. Spewing Chinese propaganda without a shred of skepticism is a betrayal of reason and our country.
Shame on your entire industry. You're vile.

LMAO, you couldn't have an honest conversation with your mirror.

When this is all over you'll have to find something new to blame Trump for, fortunately it's looking like you'll have an entire second term to distort & criticize.

Feeding your slobbering sycophants, Joe? Already there are communist loons calling for a shutdown of the network for not pushing far leftist #propaganda.
Bring big friends because it is going to be a bad time for you if you try.

I realize you're trying to make a point here, but I don't think it's the one you intended to make.

Fox News bad.
Orange man bad!
While I’ve never watched Fox News, I would trust them over CNN and MSNBC because you are proven liars who have an agenda to attack President Trump. I didn’t even vote for him but your constant attacks have made me look closer. #Trump2020

You have got to be kidding. That is what you have gotten from all this?

Maybe Joe missed it, but there are hundreds (thousands?) of people on his tweet calling him an a-hole.
