Since Donald Trump first accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the election, speculation has continued to grow on a daily basis. As Trump and the White House stand by their story, without evidence, hosts from all the three major cable news channels have all come to the same consensus.

Cable news vs Trump

During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump was forced to fight off allegations that his campaign was linked to Russia. Since being elected and sworn into office, those allegations have followed him into the White House.

As the pressure mounted, the billionaire real estate mogul attempted to shift away from the scandal, and did so by promoting the aforementioned wiretapping conspiracy. Trump sent out multiple tweets on the matter, but has yet to reveal the original source of his information. Trump did, however, blame Fox News for some of his information during a press conference on Friday, but the network was quick to push back. As seen on Twitter on March 17, rival cable hosts are coming to the network's defense.

After Donald Trump told a reporter to "ask Fox News" about some of the wiretapping information he has spoke about, in particular allegations made by Judge Andrew Napolitano, host Shepard Smith pushed back and disputed the claim.

Not long after, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough praised Smith and Fox News for standing their ground against the White House. "'Fox News know of no evidence of any kind.' Shep kicks ass. Full stop," Scarborough tweeted out.

In addition to Joe Scarborough's comments, CNN host Jake Tapper also pointed out that the White House had incorrectly quoted Fox News host Bret Baier during White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's defense of the wiretapping earlier this week.

"More obfuscation: WH citing @BretBaier as backup on wiretapping allegation. Baier did no report, he referenced @RCP write-up of Levin charges," Tapper wrote on his Twitter account.

As hosts from all three networks have found common ground against Donald Trump, it's likely that the former host of "The Apprentice" will only increase his war of words with the media.

Though Fox News have been a safe space for Trump, there are a growing number of hosts and contributors who appear to have had enough of the administration's actions.
