In an interview that aired Friday, President Donald Trump lashed out at Fox Business reporter Maria Bartiromo when she asked him about his attacks on John McCain.
That morning, Trump appeared to snub Fox News White House Correspondent John Roberts during a presser on the South lawn.
On Fox News Friday afternoon, Dagen McDowell and Lisa Boothe sparred over Trump’s continued attacks on McCain.
McDowell pointed out that if someone attacked a loved one who has just passed away, she’d slash their tires. Boothe took a less aggressive approach.
“I know the old discussion about the dossier and his aide that came out last week — I know all of that. So people can tweet that me. But this is coming from somebody whose mother is battling cancer. If somebody in my hometown pulled this nonsense after a loved one died, I would be basically — I would be slashing their tires every night to make sure they couldn’t even get out of the driveway,” she said.
“I think that is understandable, which is why a lot of people sympathize with Meghan McCain given the fact that her father’s death was very recent,” Boothe noted. “So there’s a very real pain in there and this hurts. In fairness to the president, he was asked the question about this fight and he responded. I do think he has, in fairness, and ability to be frustrated at Senator McCain for his role in the dossier.”
“He brought it up on Saturday,” McDowell snapped.
“Dagen, let me finish,” Boothe retorted.
“Considering the fact that the dossier helped lead to an investigation, that it has led to former associates ending up in jail, also his own family having to testify —”
“I want to get more time here. I hear you, I want to get Morgan in here,” McDowell said.
“The response in which he was asked about it. But is he not supposed to answer a question?” Boothe said.
“He brought it up,” McDowell said.

President Donald Trump was slammed on MSNBC by a former four-star Army general for his foreign policy blunders.
MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace interviewed Barry McCaffrey on "Deadline: White House" on Tuesday.
"This picture of constant gyrations around the deliberations around Iran seems to be fulfilling the old expression, 'when America sneezes, the world catches a cold,'" Wallace noted.
"Nicolle, I’ve followed these foreign policy and national security policy issues for the better part of fifty years, you almost have to be at a loss for words for what's going on," McCaffrey replied.
