(CBrief) – Former President Donald Trump lashed out at a liberal Fox News personality hours after she criticized him on the air on Thursday, claiming she put out “knowingly wrong” information.
In a Truth Social post, Trump accused Jessica Tarlov, a co-host of “The Five,” of having a “grating and unendurable” voice as he also gave a review of the network’s popular weekday show, Newsweek reported.
Tarlov was being critical of Trump for keeping classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, inaccurately claiming that he is “personally responsible for 30 percent” of the national debt as it currently stands.
“The actual figure is around low to mid 20 percent, depending on how and when you measure the total debt,” Newsweek noted.
“REVIEW: I really like The Five on FoxNews, especially the hosts, with the exception of wacky Jessica Tarlov, who is absolutely terrible,” Trump, formerly the host of the once-popular show “The Apprentice,” wrote.
“Her facts are knowingly wrong, her jittery presentation is horrendous and, forgive me, her VOICE is grating and unendurable. Juan Williams was terrible, but better than her. I know the show is doing well, but no thanks to Jessica. I find her impossible to take in large doses, & put out this ‘REVIEW’ because it is important to expose Fake News, & Fake People!” he added.
Tarlov’s criticism came after a tense back-and-forth with co-host Jeanne Pirro over classified documents recently found at President Joe Biden’s Wilmington, Del., residence and also at a Penn Biden Center office in Washington, D.C., last November that he used prior to winning the 2020 election.
The liberal co-host argued that Trump’s case was worse because he risked having classified docs exposed due to his frequent parties and events held at his residence, though Trump has said the documents were locked in a storage area and guarded.
“Mar-a-Lago is a place where there are people being entertained. There are parties there every single night, and that was cause for concern about how things were being kept,” Tarlov said.
“I understand that Hunter Biden is a big party animal, but it’s not the same thing. President Trump is in a tuxedo all the time, entertaining tons of foreign nationals.”
Pirro responded by asking Tarlov if she’d ever been to Trump’s residence, to which she replied she is “not invited.” The former judge replied, “so then don’t assume what you don’t know,” then demanded, “don’t point your finger” as Tarlov continued to make her argument, Newsweek noted.
