Donald Trump threatens to sue Fox News over ad calling his fans a ‘sucker’

Donald Trump threatened Fox News on Thursday and it was not a good time.

The former president announced on his allegedly financially incompetent truth social platform that he is considering news network sued For false advertising after airing a derogatory, derogatory ad from the Lincoln Project.

The ad in question is titled “SUCKER” and basically explains to MAGA Republicans why they’re suckers for believing anything Trump originally said:

“Dear Maga, we have some bad news. No, it’s not that he lost. It’s not that your little coup attempt failed and its planners and attackers are going to jail. No, really bad news. That’s what Trump told you he lost. Why did he set it up before the 2020 election. It was not voter fraud, but fraud.

“Trump told you the election was stolen, to suck you up, to take your hard earned money and throw it in his pocket. He spent it on himself not to take back the White House.

It was the biggest scam in political history. Every dollar you sent was paid for to maintain his shady business empire and lavish lifestyle. It was a sucker game the whole time. And you know who the sucker is? You.”

The ad copy may address “maga Republicans,” but the Lincoln Project intentionally targets Trump, buying local ad time on Fox News in Bedminster, New Jersey, where the former president spends the warm winter months, Mediaite. According to,

The ad was specifically designed to piss Trump off, and it apparently succeeded based on a Wednesday morning rant on Truth Social:

“The Lincoln Project’s perverts and lowlife are back, where else, Fox News. I thought they fled to the asylum after their last disastrous campaign, with charges leveled against them that were big-time murder, and I got several million more votes in 2020 than I got in 2016. The Paul Rune-run Fox only has high standard “Trump” ads, but no one else. Perverts shouldn’t be allowed “false ads” And Fox News shouldn’t let this happen. See you all in court!!!”

Donald Trump threatened to sue Fox News for airing an ad that was critical of him.

It should be noted that Trump notoriously threatens lawsuits but rarely files them – perhaps because the search process could force him to answer embarrassing questions under oath.

That and the First Amendment of political speech are probably the reason why Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson wasn’t too concerned about the threat.

“In 2020, The Lincoln Project took on a long-term free lease with Trump in mind. Today his threat to prosecute the Lincoln Project is similar to that of Trump himself; impotent, flabby and pathetic,” He Mediaite. Said to,

Wilson said he was “delighted” by the prospect of a trial and released a Twitter video in which he explicitly told Trump to “go for it.”

,Go for it. Go for it, bitch. Come to me. I can’t wait,” he taunted. “Doing This. Do it. I double dog dare you.”

Twitter users seem to have appreciated the ad more than Trump.
