Donald Trump Unloads on 'No-Talent' Stephen Colbert, 'Ridiculous' MSNBC and More
37 of Trump's Loudest Critics and Supporters

Unless he's speaking about Fox News, Donald Trump has nothing nice to say about the media.

In an interview with TIME, the president railed against everyone from Stephen Colbert to CNN's Chris Cuomo, blasting everyone for their coverage while also taking credit for their good ratings.

Here's how he broke it down with the magazine:

On Stephen Colbert:

"You see a no-talent guy like Colbert. There’s nothing funny about what he says. And what he says is filthy. And you have kids watching. And it only builds up my base. It only helps me, people like him. The guy was dying. By the way they were going to take him off television, then he started attacking me and he started doing better. But his show was dying. I’ve done his show. … But when I did his show, which by the way was very highly rated. It was high—highest rating. The highest rating he’s ever had."


"CNN in the morning, Chris Cuomo, he’s sitting there like a chained lunatic. He’s like a boiler ready to explode, the level of hatred. And the entire, you know the entire CNN platform is that way. This Don Lemon who’s perhaps the dumbest person in broadcasting, Don Lemon at night it’s like – sometimes they’ll have a guest who by mistake will say something good. And they’ll start screaming, we’re going to commercial. They cut him off. Remember?"


"MSNBC is ridiculous. It’s just bad."

"Scarborough used to treat me great. But because I don’t do interviews and stuff and want to … He went the other way. Which is fine. He’s got some problems. But I don’t watch the show anymore. It drives him crazy. I don’t watch the show."

On Fox News:

"I do watch Fox in the morning, and their ratings have gone through the roof because everyone knows I’m watching Fox. But they’re pleasant. And if I do something wrong they report on it. I don’t mean they – if I do something wrong. But it’s really, honestly it’s the most accurate."

Trump's comments on Colbert come after the late night host dedicated an entire entire monologue to bashing the president for insulting friend and CBS colleague John Dickerson during a "Face The Nation" interview.

The monologue garnered controversy after Colbert said "the only thing [Trump's] mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c--k holster."
