Wallace: “No, he took the shots, and we didn’t like them, and frankly we don’t like this either. But he never went as far as President Trump has, and that’s what’s concerning, because it seems like he crosses a line when he talks about — that we’re an enemy of the people. That is concerning.”
This is the second time this week that Fox News has criticized the president. Earlier this week, Shepard Smith admonished President Donald Trump for his performance and comments at the impromptu press conference on Thursday.
Smith addressed the president directly, taking on Trump’s evasion of questions about the administration’s relationship with Russia. “We have a right to know. We absolutely do, and that you call us ‘fake news’ and put us down like children for asking these questions on behalf of the American people, is inconsequential,” said Smith. “The people deserve that answer, at very least.”
Wallace asked Priebus about Russia as well. Priebus denied the reports on the basis that the sources were anonymous, “If you’re going to come out with a story that says Russian spies are talking to your campaign, my God. I mean, I think you should in some cases, or in most cases, actually have a named source.” Anonymous sources are particularly common in stories that could result in the source being fired for sharing information with the media.
