During the 11 a.m. hour of news shows on CNN and MSNBC, hosts highlighted President Donald Trump’s selective outrage about recent reports of sexual assault by politicians amid long-standing accusations against him.

Just in time to help Donald Trump, Fox News has come up with an article claiming, “Iran’s nuclear program is far from halted.”
