Not even Fox News is safe from President Trump’s Twitter
finger these days.
After Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday brought up the notion, as reported by the New York Times, that more lives could have been saved if only the president had acted more decisively to the coronavirus outbreak, Trump blasted him and the network in this tweet:
Later, Wallace went on to ask former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer about the president’s briefings, saying that while Trump initially got “high marks,” he’s lately been “getting into fights with governors he did not think were sufficiently appreciative or reporters.”
This isn’t the first time Trump has bashed Wallace, whom the president said will never live up to his father’s legacy and should instead go work for one of the “fake news” networks:
Previously, Wallace shrugged off the attacks by saying he wouldn’t let them get in the way of his reporting. “Generally speaking, I think it is an indication that you’re doing your job,” he said. “I mean I’m not in this to make friends. I am in this to do the best reporting that I can do.”
