For some reason, I wasn’t watching this live. I mean, on a good day, choosing between watching a NASCAR race or a Trump speech is like deciding whether to eat a Denny’s Grand Slam Breakfast out of a roadhouse urinal or my own liver with a Taco Bell spork.
But if you were watching FOX broadcasting network yesterday, you probably thought you’d get to see both.
Well, apparently not, judging from the angry reactions of these Twittering NASCAR fans:
Guess that about sums it up…

FOX seriously isn’t showing Trump’s speech rn. We can hear him in the background.

Guess the New Fox News Corp. is afraid we might see or hear some Trump support! #NASCAR

Yes, because Fox News Corp. is famously unsupportive of Donald Trump.
According to RawStory, Fox also earned the ire of the Trumpaloompas when it cut away during Trump’s weird limo lap and aired a Mike Bloomberg ad instead.
For the record, here’s what viewers apparently missed: Donald Trump reading words a communications intern apparently slapped together as the pr*sident followed his finger across the page like a first-grader.
Trump really couldn’t recite these cliches without reading them in a painful manner? pic.twitter.com/D0SSWhVMtM

In other words, THE GREATEST SPEECH BY A PRESIDENT EVER — AN ADDRESS THE LIKES OF WHICH NO ONE HAS EVER SEEN BEFORE!
