Ex-Fox News Chief Calls Trump Jr. a ‘Low IQ Oaf’

Joe Peyronnin, the former president of Fox News, took to social media to criticize Donald Trump Jr., branding him as a “low IQ oaf.” 

Peyronnin, sharing his political views on X, formerly known as Twitter, rebuked Trump Jr. over comments he made regarding the treatment of Catholics by the Biden administration.

The criticism stemmed from a video snippet shared by Ron Filipkowski, editor-in-chief at MeidasTouch, where Trump Jr. asserted that the Department of Justice under President Biden viewed Catholics as “domestic terrorists.”

Peyronnin echoed Filipkowski’s post, condemning Trump Jr.’s remarks as “ridiculous lies to please daddy.”

The exchange sparked discussions among social media users, with some expressing hope that public perception of the Trump family was shifting. 

Some people had a different opinion about Peyronnin, stating that he only spoke up after he had left his job at Fox News.

While Trump Jr.’s claims have echoed those made by his father, former President Donald Trump, there is no evidence to support them. 

Trump Sr. has previously accused the Biden administration of persecuting Christians, a sentiment aimed at rallying support from Christian voters.

Although Trump had received considerable support from white Evangelical Christians in past elections, recent polls indicate a slight change in their voting preferences, with some of these voters exhibiting greater support for President Biden in the upcoming 2024 presidential election.
