We've moved into the "watches Fox News, stews, tweets grievances" stage of the cycle, which, as always, exposes the people who bought the "reads speech on Teleprompter" stage.
If he's still watching, he should be hitting this segment any time now.

President Trump is now raging against Google based on last night's episode of Lou Dobbs Tonight, which he tweeted clips of last night. Some notes on this...

Left, Fox Business, 7:40 p.m.

The right-wing media has been trying to turn former Google engineer Kevin Cernekee, who says he was fired for being conservative, into the poster boy for their claim that big tech is anti-conservative. This started with a big profile of him in the Wall Street Journal on Thursday.
His story spread through right-wing media. A sampling:
The implication of these stories is pretty simple: Google is biased against conservatives like you, the reader. But the story appears to have been more complicated. Well down in the WSJ, we discover that some of Cernekee's fellow Republicans at Google thought he was an extremist.
And yesterday, The Daily Caller fleshed that out a bit more: Cernekee made "troubling posts" on Google listservs, including trying to raise money on Chuck Johnson's website to support notorious white nationalist Richard Spencer, described as a "well-known conservative activist."
"Conservatives angry at big tech may view such postings as a cautionary lesson in the importance of vetting their cause célèbres," the article continued. Indeed. dailycaller.com/2019/08/05/goo…
After that story was published, Lou Dobbs ran a story using Cernekee's earlier interview on Fox & Friends to call for the Justice Department to "sit inside the Google complex." Trump liked the segment, tweeted clips from it last night, and is now citing Cernekee as an authority.
This is at least the third time Trump has tweeted angrily about Google after watching a Fox segment about the company.
