Trump Campaign Slams Fox News Director Who Called Arizona For Biden: ‘A Clinton-Voting, Biden-Donating Democrat’

Anger towards Fox News from Team Trump has boiled over as the President’s campaign issued a statement calling the network’s Decision Desk director Arnon Mishkin “a Clinton-voting, Biden-donating Democrat.”

The Trump campaign has been livid ever since the network called Arizona – many believe prematurely – for Democrat Joe Biden on election night.

It was a call that the New York Times would later admit was “a bold call that instantly changed the tenor of the night.”

Have President Trump's four years in office been a success?

 

In a statement emailed to the media, the Trump campaign declared: “A Democrat operative put his finger on the scale and declared Joe Biden the winner before the votes were counted.”

That operative is Mishkin.

 

What Fox News Did to the Trump Campaign is Reprehensible

The President’s team has tried time and again to pressure Fox News into rescinding their call, to no avail.

Several other media outlets have refused to place Arizona in the Biden win column nearly two days later.

“Five major election decision organizations have refused to follow Mishkin’s lead and call the race in Arizona,” the campaign stated.

 

Mishkin adamantly defended his decision, as did Fox News politics editor Chris Stirewalt.

“The president is not going to be able to take over and win enough votes to eliminate that seven-point lead that the former vice president has,” Mishkin insisted. “I’m sorry … we’re not wrong in this particular case.”

Stirewalt added, “The reality is that the margins are too significant, we feel very confident in the call, or otherwise we wouldn’t have made it.”

 

Were They Right?

But the margins weren’t too significant as evidenced by other networks refusing to follow Fox’s lead.

The Arizona Republic reports, “Trump received almost the exact share he would need to charge back to win Arizona’s 11 electoral votes and potentially reelection.”

While the News-Herald in Arizona said, “Arizona [is] still in play.”

 

The Trump campaign did a little digging and revealed some information which might indicate Mishkin had no business being around a supposedly neutral election coverage team in the first place.

“Mishkin is a registered Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, worked as a Democrat political consultant, and has a long record of donating to Democrats, including the 2008 Obama-Biden campaign,” they wrote.

Ironically, they reference a New York Times article that describes Mishkin as a “nerd” who “could stop [President Trump].”

Mishkin just might have succeeded.

  1. Fox news has lost my confidence. I will watch Tucker, Ingram and Dobbs, and will immeditely stop watching whenever Juan Williams is wasting my time, and Chris Walace shows his traitorous face. Even Napolitano has lost credibility.

    It is OAN and Newsmax from now on. I don’t have time enough to waste on Fox. Bye Bye

  2. I’m done with Fox, sorry Tucker n Sean, find a new network if you want me to continue following. Sean, I wouldn’t expect to see him leave Fox, he does everything they tell him to, values be damned. Tucker I could see leaving one day. He’s gonna have to if I’m going to remain a viewer. I’ve found many better options already. I really didn’t realize how bad Fox was and I knew they were bad, but there are plenty of options out there for news and conservative values. I’ve been enjoying them too!!

  3. Screw Fox News and never-Trumper pig-nose stirewalt. They got the conservative benefit of the doubt for 4 years. NO MORE!
