An epic meltdown in the White House was described by Mark Meadows. Trump allegedly went insane because Fox News requested Biden from Arizona.

According to an excerpt from Mark Meadows' book, Fox News' choice to call Arizona for incumbent President Joe Biden on election night triggered a wave of shouting and swearing when Meadows tried to call the conservative network for correction.

According to an excerpt from Mark Meadows' book, Fox News' choice to call Arizona for incumbent President Joe Biden on election night triggered a wave of shouting and swearing when Meadows tried to call the conservative network for correction.


Meadows' book, "The Chief's Chief," shows anxiety at the White House that night over Arizona, in particular, for handing Biden the traditional Republican stronghold, where Meadows admitted that he almost smashed his phone.


"Then, out of nowhere, I heard a series of loud screams and insults from the next room. Fox News invited Arizona to Joe Biden, "he continued, admitting that he felt the call came too soon.


  1. Not only was this infuriating
  2. but it was also impossible to determine it mathematically at this early hour
  3. With the information Fox News had at the time, they could not legitimately make the call they made.


Meadows claimed that Fox's "liberals" were behind the decision to call early elections.


My worst fears have been realized


  1. that there is a liberal group within the network that is trying to subvert President Trump in the name of objectivity.
  2. I called Bill Samoon again, clicking on the numbers so powerful that I was surprised I didn't hack my iPhone screen
  3. "he wrote, telling Sammon," There is no information you can have at this time that would make this call possible. "


Meadows claims he retaliated after learning that modeling the network's election results was responsible for the decision. "President Trump may lose Arizona.


  • But if he did, it would be in less than ten thousand votes, and there is no way of knowing that now. "
  • Despite Donald Trump's claims to the contrary, and scrutiny by the former president's supporters, Biden won Arizona.
  • Despite the accuracy of Arizona's estimate, Samoon received criticism from Fox News management for his control of the network's electoral coverage.


In January, Samun announced his departure from the network.


The president's aide later complained in the book that Democratic-leaning votes were added to counts across the country in the early morning hours of November 4, without indicating that states like Pennsylvania and Wisconsin were barred from counting votes Biden emailed until Election Day.
