President Donald Trump’s passionate base lashed out at Fox News anchor Chris Wallace for reporting that Attorney General Bill Barr is protecting the president.
“What really comes across to me most of all is that for two years, Donald Trump sat there and said I don’t have an attorney general, I don’t have somebody out there looking for and protecting my interests. He clearly has that now with Bill Barr,” Wallace said on “America’s Newsroom.”
“Not saying that Barr isn’t right in everything he says, but he clearly is protecting this president and advocating his point of view on a lot of these issues,” he added.

Chris Wallace on Fox News https://t.co/cS0uRkSHwq #FoxNews Chris Wallace is ovbiously protecting left wing criminal thugs like former FBI Director Comey and others. In the mean time Barr is trying to find out the truth and protect the innocent!

Chris, do you think Barr’s actions are truly focused on protecting the president? Or could it be he is protecting our country and the rule of law? Think! Where’s your Dad when we need a true journalist?@FoxNewsSundayhttps://t.co/8ctLnqRwyt

When you're used to enjoying every establishment hack, deep state weasel and their media spokes trash Trump and level false accusations, no wonder you viewed Barr's objective, fact based comments and investigative plan as pro Trump #ChrisWallacehttps://t.co/7d1giR6Nqd
