[ laughter ] yeah, it came out that fox news hosts were begging for trump do something. and today's fox news hosts lit tree on fire again just to change the subject [ laughter ] trump didn't want to hear it not only did trump ignore texts from the fox news, he also dropped them from his family cell phone plan.
