Lowry — who has been doing pundit spots like this for years and knows exactly where that line is — knew this and came armed and ready to stir up some attention for himself on Twitter, get his name in the paper and draw a reaction from Trump. Well… congrats Rich, you did it! Twitter is aflutter with your balls statement in quotes with hashtags and everything. And Trump is currently in a Twitter war with you. #gimmeattention
If you’re Fox brass, you just wrapped up a day when you stated that the thin-skinned Trump engages in “personal attacks on our anchors and hosts.” That’s correct, he does. Your 6 p.m. panel on Special Report concluded he was “childish.” That’s also accurate. But then just hours later on one of your top-rated programs — a program that has treated Trump fairly despite his obnoxious criticism of it — a paid contributor of the network engages in an utterly childish personal attack on Trump.
The high road gets wiped out the same day it was paved by the network. And worse, if you’re Fox, Trump’s accusations of being treated unfairly suddenly have merit while his demand for an apology will only grow louder.
