If there is one thing you may depend upon from Donald Trump it is that he will turn every single development in his life into a way to make a buck and pry money from the idiots in his base. Fox News President Jay Wallace issued this statement Wednesday:
“FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential. We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court,” the statement read. “Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized. While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic tone by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people.”
The blow back:
The time has come to find a new voice for Republicans. FOX news has lost its focus. If I want to hear CNN, I know where to find them, and the rest of the left-wing liberal biased media. Say it ain’t so, FOX.

At least he’s honest enough to admit that Fox News is the Republican mouthpiece. Kudos for that.
.@FoxNews you are dead to me

Now, this one is truly vile. This quote of Andrew Jackson’s is a reference to the ethnic cleansing that took place to drive the Cherokees from the south. This was the beginning of the Trail of Tears that killed over 5,000 people.
If the Supreme Court decides Trump must accept Acosta I hope he closes down all press briefings. Famous quote Andrew Jackson… The Supreme Court has made their decision let them enforce it

Andrew Jackson simply didn’t bother to enforce any laws which happened to conflict with his personal interests. And Trump loves Andrew Jackson, wonder why? He put up a picture of him in the Oval Office. He said that Jackson, “a very tough person” “with a big heart” was against the Civil War — he died 16 years before it took place, but whatever, this is history a la Trump. Trump loves this racist monster and so does his base, bottom line.
So, the lines are drawn and the gloves are off. What is lost to the Trumpkins is that CNN tried to make peace and their fearless leader refused:
According to the complaint, CNN head Jeff Zucker privately appealed to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly regarding the Acosta situation. According to CNN sources, the network also reached out to members of the White House press office in the days leading up to Tuesday’s announced suit.
Hucky Boo Boo Sanders announced that the suit would be “vigorously defended” and then the Trump money machine went into action to get the base to pay for it, with this fundraising email and survey — not the first one, by any means, which has announced that the big bad liberal media is out to get Trump.
The Trump campaign is now fundraising off the lawsuit with CNN: "President Trump will NOT put up with the media's liberal bias and utter disrespect for this Administration…" –> pic.twitter.com/GbHOAdWRQV

Just another day in Trump World and another dollar to be made. Trump is a victim and the base must rally and help him. The fundraising emails should really be interesting as Trump becomes further “persecuted” by the Deep State via Robert Mueller and needs the base’s money for his defense. Count on it. Trump is first last and always a con man looking for a mark.
