Chris Wallace slams conservative media hypocrisy: ‘You shouldn’t fall into line’ when Trump attacks

Published

on

Fox’s Chris Wallace spoke with host Harris Faulkner on Friday about President Donald Trump’s Thursday press conference, during which he attacked the “very dishonest media.”

Faulkner pointed to the discussion surrounding Trump’s take on the unfair media, asking, “Can you think of any examples of where the president might actually have had some strong points about false reporting? Because that was really what he was going after.”

Wallace noted that there has been negative reporting about Trump, particularly in the mainstream liberal media. He did note, however, that a lot of the coverage is “accurate reporting of things the president doesn’t like.”

He commented on the various leaks coming from the White House this past week, explaining that he can understand why the president wouldn’t like the media reports, but he said, “That doesn’t mean that the reporting of those facts, those leaks is fake in any way, shape, or form.”

Faulkner cited pushback against the press from Trump, asking whether it will impact the way the media covers him moving forward. Wallace, laughing, replied, “No, my experience has been, you know, when a president or any official tells what you should be doing … Just because the president or other powerful person says that, you shouldn’t fall into line.”

Wallace then recounted Fox News’ reporting of former President Barack Obama. “We got plenty of criticism at Fox from President Obama during the last eight years and we didn’t fall into line because of that, and I think most of the viewers out there salute us for not falling into line,” he said.

“If you don’t like the idea that President Obama is telling the press what to do, you can’t like it when it’s President Trump, somebody a lot of viewers here may admire, telling reporters what to do,” Wallace argued.

Fox News pundit: Tax returns ruling against Trump is ‘a win for him’ and ‘will help the president’

Published

on

Fox News pundit Katie Pavlich argued on Thursday that a Supreme Court ruling which opened the door for prosecutors to obtain Donald Trump's tax returns is actually "a win" for the president.

Pavlich made the remarks after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can request the president's tax records in a public corruption case.

"I think it's a win and a little bit of a loss for President Trump," Pavlich explained. "In the sense that he will now have to deal with a number of these issues and other presidents in the future will as well, whether they are valid requests for information or not and whether they are being made for political for reasons or for valid criminal investigations."

Trump melts down on Twitter after his own Supreme Court nominees rebuke him on financial cases

Published

on

On Thursday, following the 7-2 rulings from the Supreme Court rejecting President Donald Trump's claims of absolute immunity in the New York tax returns and House financial oversight cases, the president took to Twitter to complain.

In the thread, Trump whined that he was being unfairly targeted by the Supreme Court decisions — which were joined by the two justices he appointed — and claimed he was a victim of "prosecutorial misconduct."

We have a totally corrupt previous Administration, including a President and Vice President who spied on my campaign, AND GOT CAIGHT...and nothing happens to them. This crime was taking place even before my election, everyone knows it, and yet all are frozen stiff with fear....
