Donald Trump Rips Fox News Reporter For Covering Protester Who Interrupted Him: ‘You Gave Him More Airtime Than Me’
While talking with a gaggle of reporters on Tuesday, President Donald Trump lashed out at Fox News correspondent John Roberts after his network supposedly gave too much attention to a protester who interrupted the president’s speech in Virginia.
Trump called out Roberts for focusing too much on a protester who held up a sign that read “Deport hate” during his speech while shouting, “Mr. President, you can’t send us back, Virginia is our home!”
“You gave the protester 100 percent of the time!” the president complained. “And I don’t care about coverage, the last thing I need is coverage. But listen, John — 100 percent, not one word of the speech. And, you know, we were there about the speech.”
Trump went on to say that the protester “didn’t look so good to me” and complained that Roberts nonetheless “gave him 100 percent.”
“You know what? That’s okay,” the president said sarcastically to Roberts. “You often do that, that’s okay.”
