Following the airing of a segment comparing his poll numbers to those of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former President Trump criticized Fox News host Laura Ingraham, accusing her of running a “hit piece” against him.
Ingraham invited Chris Bedford, a conservative author and pundit who serves as the executive editor of Common Sense Society, to join her during the segment. Together, they delved into a discussion about the comparison of Trump’s poll numbers with those of President Biden and Ron DeSantis in states where Trump experienced narrow losses during the 2020 election.
“Joe Biden is running pretty badly behind a generic Republican figure like a Ron DeSantis or Tim Scott,” Bedford said. “But he’s consistently beating Donald Trump.”
Shortly after the segment was broadcasted on Monday evening, Trump expressed his anger with the longtime conservative commentator on his Truth Social website. Ingraham, who had been predominantly supportive of Trump in recent years, faced his public wrath.
“Laura Ingraham on FoxNews just did a hit piece on me (there go her ratings!) showing some polls which indicate that Ron DeSanctimonious may do better against Biden than I would, when actually polls show that I do MUCH better against Biden than ‘Rob,’” Trump wrote.
“The poll your looking at now, which has me doing far better against Crooked Joe, was just put out by FOX, I am sure unhappily,” Trump continued. “I’m also leading DeSanctus by over 40 points in Primary Voting. Watch Greg Kelly on Newsmax at 10:00 P.M.”
