Fox News host goes off on Trump for bashing Chris Wallace

Colleagues of Fox News anchor Chris Wallace defended him as President Trump lashed out at the journalist for being critical of his administration.

On Sunday, Trump aired his grievances against Wallace’s coverage, calling him a “Mike Wallace wannabe,” invoking the Fox News anchor’s late father, who was also a prominent journalist.

Jedediah Bila, a host at the network, said Wallace “is doing his job.”

“Enough with the 3rd grade name-calling,” Bila, who is recovering from coronavirus tweeted. “The news should not be any president’s friend, ally, or buddy. If it bothered you when Obama complained about Fox News, but you’re silent on this complete nonsense, then just stop. Seriously. Enough.”

Wallace responded to past criticism from Trump by citing the president’s relationship with his own father.

“He often likes to say about me, ‘You know, I was covered by Mike Wallace, I liked him much more,’” the Fox News anchor said last year. “To which my reaction is always: One of us has a daddy problem, and it’s not me.”
