Fox News spent 2018 giving advice directly to Donald Trump
Throughout 2018, right-wing personalities on Fox News and Fox Business regularly gave advice directly to President Donald Trump. Fox hosts and guests looked into the camera and advised the president when not to speak out on certain stories, when to take credit, which investigations not to worry about, what to believe about immigration, and especially why he should not speak with special counsel Robert Mueller.
As The Washington Post’s Philip Bump noted earlier this year, Trump doesn’t necessarily take all the advice of his Fox sycophants. But Fox figures are clearly confident that they have the ear of the president.
