Fox News Reporter Loses It Over Anti-Trump Questions

Fox News chief White House correspondent John Roberts may have succeeded where Donald Trump and his team have struggled when it comes to flipping the narrative on the “white supremacy” issue in favor of the president.

Roberts received blowback online for pushing White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany multiple times Thursday to declare unequivocally that Trump denounces white supremacy.

She answered his question squarely, yet Roberts was unwilling to accept her response and became angry on air when discussing the exchange afterward on Fox News.

“For all of you on Twitter who are hammering me for asking that question — I don’t care,” Roberts declared during a live shot from the North Lawn of the White House.

“Because it’s a question that needs to be asked, and clearly, the president’s Republican colleagues a mile away from here are looking for an answer for it too. So stop deflecting, stop blaming the media.

“I’m tired of it.” he added, clearly very miffed.

Let’s look at his back and forth with McEnany more closely.

“I’d like to ask you for a definitive and declarative statement, without ambiguity or deflection: As the person who speaks for the president, does the president denounce white supremacism and groups that espouse it in all their forms?” Roberts asked.

“This has been answered yesterday by the president himself,” McEnany replied. “The day before by the president himself. On the debate stage, the president was asked this. He said, ‘Sure,’ three times. Yesterday he was point blank asked, ‘Do you denounce white supremacy?’”

“I’ve always denounced any form of that,” she quoted Trump saying.

McEnany is absolutely right.

The only reason Trump even mentioned the Proud Boys by name at the debate is because Democratic nominee Joe Biden brought them up first.

If Trump is a racist, he’s not very good at it.
