Some of the responses:

According to what was released Fox cares only about ratings not the truth. So I believe I will pass.

U ready to lie to the masses as usual

Great interview all around. Happy to hear someone actually interested in America first policies and programs. I look forward to following your leadership.

Probably not sarcasm. Heh.

Good job glad you are out front and fighting unlike some reps we have.

Ooh. Do tell.

It speaks volumes that a “news” channel that has been outright exposed in court for lying to the American people gets you all excited to appear on.

“Faux News channel, fascist groupies” – protest sign, circa 2003- 2004.
