Despite reports that Donald Trump planned to live tweet during James Comey’s testimony on Thursday, for once Trump followed the advice of many people worldwide and refrained from doing so. Unfortunately, Trump’s son, Donald Jr., who has also been known to post highly insensitive tweets, pinch hit for his father and took the metaphoric Twitter wheel, instead.

Not to be outdone by his namesake, Trump’s Twitter respite didn’t last long; he was up early Friday morning to grace the world with his thoughts on Thursday’s hearing — specifically those he feels are his allies within the media. Although alluding to others he felt were on his side, Trump praised one network by name:

Naturally, other Twitter users had lots to say in response to Trump’s perception that Fox News’ reporting was somehow the shining star. Some people redirected Trump back to the paramount issue: the fact that Comey called Trump a liar during open hearing.

@realDonaldTrump The funny part is that you don’t truly watch FOX. Your tweets are truly in line with discussions on CNN. You wish CNN liked you like FOX.

One person pointed out a major issue with Fox News’ so-called reporting.

@realDonaldTrump Great reporting is actual reporting. Not a bunch of people sitting around giving opinions biased towards you.

Others addressed the general foolishness of Trump’s tweet.

@realDonaldTrump @foxandfriends Sounds like Fox and Friends are the only friends you have left. Are you dumping Sessions or not?

@CindyBBATSB @jules_su @realDonaldTrump@foxandfriends Yes the GOP is TROLLING America and the World.

@justinhendrix @realDonaldTrump @foxandfriends Trump lied abt Obama wire tap
Trump lied abt 3 mill illegal votes
Trump lied abt Comey Tape
Trump lied abt Birtherism
Trump lied about …

@realDonaldTrump @foxandfriends From this point forward, even your best achievements will be tainted, mocked, and all for naught. You will never make a difference. Ever.

@realDonaldTrump @foxandfriends There has literally never been nor will there ever be a moment in its history wherein @foxandfriends could be accused of “great reporting.”

@realDonaldTrump @foxandfriends You mean like when they shamefully covered murder conspiracy theory against grieving family’s wishes 2 give u cover? https://thinkprogress.org/fox-and-friends-seth-rich-coverage-denied-by-family-5ba8f018e02d

As an additional show of his lack of focus and dedication to the American people, Donald Trump also tweeted that Comey’s testimony provided Trump with “complete vindication.” Unfortunately to those looking to Trump for leadership, it appears that his energy and commitment are only to himself and how he wants people to believe he is thought of.
