Teen accidentally gets looped into Trump’s late-night Fox News Twitter rant

President Donald Trump accidentally tagged a California teenager on Twitter last night, while ranting about how Fox News was reporting on his proposed border wall.

“Never thought I’d say this but I think @johnrobertsFox and @GillianHTurner @FoxNews have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations than the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN & NBC! Look to final results! Don’t know how my poll numbers are so good, especially up 19% with Hispanics?” he wrote.

Unfortunately for Jillian Turner of Weed, California, Trump’s tagged her handle, instead of that of Fox correspondent Gillian Turner.

The teenage Turner noticed.



Trump has a long history of tagging the wrong people on Twitter, so while it was a wild Sunday evening for Turner, it was just a normal night for the president.
