President Donald Trump used Twitter to attack Fox News Channel again Tuesday night, lamenting the network “ain’t what it used to be.”

He tweeted, singling out anchor Martha MacCallum, “Just watched Rep. Eric Swalwell be asked endless softball questions by @marthamaccallum on @FoxNews about the phony Witch Hunt. He was just forced out of the Democrat Presidential Primary because he polled at ZERO. Fox sure ain’t what it used to be. Too bad!”

Later, he followed up: “Oh well, we still have the great @seanhannity who I hear has a really strong show tonight. 9:00 P.M.”

Earlier this month, he tore into Fox in a series of tweets, slamming the right-leaning network for “loading up with Democrats” and forgetting “the people who got them there.”

Fox had and a representative at the White House did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

MacCallum did not respond to the tweet tagging her, but did use her account to highlight tonight’s guest on her show, Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez.

It remains to be seen if the president tunes in.
