Fox News fans revolted after Neil Cavuto pointed out that he and his colleagues don't actually work for President Donald Trump, who threatened to turn against the network over some unfavorable coverage earlier this week.

The president suggested he would turn his supporters against Fox News after a Democratic National Committee spokeswoman criticized him on the air without pushback from the network's host, but Cavuto insisted the network had an obligation to objectivity.

"First of all, Mr. President, we don’t work for you," Cavuto said. "I don’t work for you. My job is to cover you, not fawn over you or rip you -- just report on you, to call balls and strikes on you."

"My job, Mr. President — our job — here is to keep the score," he added. "It’s not settle scores."

Many viewers were confused and outraged.
