Trump Asks ‘Where Are You Roger Ailes?’: He Died Three Years Ago

President Donald Trump seemed to suggest on Tuesday night that he didn’t know former Fox News chief Roger Ailes was dead. Ailes passed away three years ago and was accused of sexual harassment by dozens of women, include former employee Gretchen Carlson.

Trump was responding to a tweet about Donna Brazile, who apparently appeared on Fox News last night.

She gets fired by CNN for giving Crooked Hillary the debate questions, and gets hired by Fox News,” Trump tweeted.

“Where are you Roger Ailes?”

Response to Trump’s tweet was swift. His critics and other social media users pounced, suggesting Trump’s tweet was evidence that he had no idea Ailes was dead. It took the President around an hour to send a new tweet about the matter.

I know better than anyone that my friend Roger Ailes died 3 years ago, just look at what happened to Fox News. We all miss Roger!!!” he said.

Once again, Ailes was credibly accused of serial sexual harassment against women employees. Between these two tweets, Trump sent a series of others, some of which accused former Vice President Joe Biden of suffering from cognitive decline.
