President Trump addressed the nation Wednesday night from the Oval Office, announcing new travel restrictions and economic relief actions, as well as offering reassurance to the American people that his administration is on top of the threat.
While it’s no surprise that liberals trashed the speech for being xenophobic, CNN’s Brian Stelter managed to make the address about Fox News.
“Trump's Oval Office address was exactly what his Fox wingmen needed – now Sean Hannity et al can celebrate the new travel ban – while evading the real scourge of community spread within the US,” he tweeted.

As you can guess, that did not go over well on Twitter.

I say this with all due respect (none), you’re a colossal hack, a transparent political activist disguised as a news guy and you’re divorced from reality. Folks like you won’t ever be in touch with the average American. If you have any integrity, you’ll delete this tweet.
No one can hear you now because the airports are empty.— Emerald Robinson ?? (@EmeraldRobinson) March 12, 2020
For your sake, and for the country's sake, it would be amazing if you could take even a few short days off of this schtick.— Mollie (@MZHemingway) March 12, 2020

Are you insane?— It's still 2016 apparently (@jtLOL) March 12, 2020
And yes, he confirmed he really is watching Fox.
I guess you didn't watch Hannity's program tonight. I did. He was very happy with the president's address.— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) March 12, 2020
