The Commander-in-Tweet has recently lamented the apparent downgrading of Fox News sympathies from Juan Williams and its hiring of Donna Brazile. Today, he added McCabe to the hit list, a former FBI agent who authorized the investigation into Trump ties to Russia and potential obstruction of justice.

His reward? A paid CNN contract.
