Rank-and-file Republicans on Twitter appeared incredulous and incensed Monday that Fox News was not showing the full Republican National Convention activities, instead running regular programming such as "Hannity" rather than the roster of scheduled speakers.
President Donald Trump's campaign adviser Brad Parscale seemed especially angered, tweeting:
"Can't believe I have to watch the convention on @CNN. Unbelievable. @FoxNews"
Conservative author Mike Dice chided Parscale, digital media director for Trump's 2016 campaign, to watch the convention on YouTube.
"Once again, YouTube is where it's at, Brad," Dice replied. "Try listening to us YouTubers from now on instead of worrying about Twitter and Facebook all the time bro."
Monday night’s list of speakers included: Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.; Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.; and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, the former governor of South Carolina.
Like Parscale, some were upset at having to listen to those commenting on speeches they were not able to hear.
"I do not want to hear Tucker [Carlson] talking to congressmen. I wanted to hear Charlie Kirk!!!!" Carla Michalka wrote.
One poster summed it up saying he did not need to watch the convention to be motivated since he was voting for Trump regardless.
"I'm not watching it; I don't need to watch it," wrote "Dogs for Trump." "I'm voting for Trump because he is clearly the only option to save this country from marxist socialists."
