AP claims it has found Trump's 'advisors'

Fox and FriendsStill trying to figure out President Donald Trump and his success, the establishment media thinks it has solved the mystery: he watches "Fox and Friends" and sets his agenda via remote control.  

None other than The Associated Press, the wire service, suggested in a recent story that the light-hearted program and its peppy commentators have "effectively become White House policy advisors" because Trump "takes his cues" from the program.

Don Irvine of Accuracy in Media says it's astounding that a supposedly unbiased wire service would suggest such a thing.

"To try to say that the President of the United States is taking his policy cues from a morning show – that is dismissive," he says. "It's absolutely ridiculous."

The commander in chief, Irvine points out, gets daily top secret briefings and is surrounded by seasoned advisors that have helped Trump successful policies.

The AP article claims Trump reacts to news he learns from the show such as sending National Guard troops to the U.S. Mexico border after learning from "Fox and Friends" about the caravan of illegal aliens travelling north from Central America.

Trump threatened to veto the spending bill after the commentators complained it is "bloated," the AP claimed, without offering evidence of either that claim nor the National Guard claim. 

The article goes on to quote the co-hosts and a producer dismissing that very claim.

The AP article, Irvine says, is sour grapes.

"I think they were being extremely dismissive," the media analyst says of the AP. "They wanted to really kind of put a stake through the heart of 'Fox and Friends' but it's a program that a lot of people watch."
