Donald Trump is going to hate what these Fox News hosts said about him behind closed doors

Fox News Channel’s drift into becoming the never-Trump news network continues at a frightening pace.

Many daytime news hosts now openly parrot CNN and MSNBC talking points on the air.

But Donald Trump is going to hate what these Fox News hosts said about him behind closed doors.

Fox News promotes its “news hosts” like Martha MacCallum, Brett Baier, and Chris Wallace as the counterargument to the liberal media critique that Fox News is a pro-Trump house organ led by Sean Hannity and the rest of the primetime opinion hosts.

But MacCallum, Baier, and Wallace went even further at a closed-door panel for advertisers.

The three hosts made fun of Donald Trump and bragged about criticizing him.

The New York Times reports:

At a panel for advertisers in Manhattan last month, the network gathered Mr. Baier, Mr. Wallace and the news anchor Martha MacCallum to talk about covering the White House. The message: Trump doesn’t own us.

“Contrary to the opinion of some people, he’s not our boss,” Ms. MacCallum said, marveling at Mr. Trump’s criticism of Fox News for airing interviews with Democratic presidential candidates. “It is kind of shocking to hear that he really — that’s the way he thinks about how we should cover the election.”

Mr. Wallace joked about the president’s tendency to compare him unfavorably to his father, the “60 Minutes” legend Mike Wallace, who died in 2012. “He often likes to say about me, ‘You know, I was covered by Mike Wallace, I liked him much more,’” Mr. Wallace told the advertisers. “To which my reaction is always: One of us has a daddy problem, and it’s not me.”

This news will not comfort Donald Trump or his supporters.

It adds to the mountain of evidence that Fox News is moving Left in an effort to win praise from the liberal media.

  1. The impeachment coup is as illegal as anything I’ve ever heard. The media is conspiring with the Democrats to impeach Trump. They have been talking about it since the day he was elected. Conspiracy to commit an illegal act is just as serious a crime as the crime itself. They are complicit in an illegal coup and they are illegally influencing our election process by spreading their lies about Trump. They should all be charged criminally for their illegal acts and their lying news stations should be shut down forever. All IMO

    • Here’s my opinion. The democrats might have had a better chance at defeating Trump next year if they had not gone down this ridiculous impeachment road.

  2. Their warm bodies came together and bodily fluids intermingled so half-breeds came upon us. Peace be upon them. In Allah’s name we pray Amen.

  3. Please….You have to consider the source…It’s the New York times people…Get real…They’ll print anything besides the truth.

  4. “It adds to the mountain of evidence that Fox News is moving Left in an effort to win praise from the liberal media.” WRONG. It really shows FOX News’ growing embarassment at its richly deserved and well-earned reputation as “PRAVDA West’, U.S.-SOVIET STYLE STATE TV. Murdoch has nothing to be proud about having allowed Sean Hannity to steal the spotlight as Trump’s not-so-secret confidante and news source. Hannity should be banned by the FCC. These FOX reporters have a conscience. Not so the vicious leaders of the GOP who coerce numerous party members and congresspeople to stay in line as trump runs roughshod over our precious democratic and constitutional-created institutions. When push comes to shove, and after all the evidence is presented, there will be no choice but to impeach and convict. Even the “base” will start to rue the day they voted against their own best interests, yet again.

    • Martha MacCullum has completely turned on him since the Kavenaugh debacle. I always liked her, but I don’t watch her anymore because her facial expressions say it all!! What a bunch of backstabbing S.O.Bs. No more Fox for me. She, Chris Wallace and Neil Cavuto are no better than sewer rats to me now.

    • That’s funny. The “base” voted against their own best interests by not electing Hillary?
      Yeah I’m sure that will haunt them the rest of their lives.

  6. You know us old Vietnam War Vets aren’t so fast as we were 50 years ago killing commies there, but, I bet there isn’t 1 media asshole that can outrun rifle much less the old slow 1911 rds!?! Want to bet?

  7. MIKE WALLACE WAS A REPUBLICAN AT ONE TIME WHO WOULD LATER BETRAY NIXON’S VP SPIRO AGNEW BACK IN THE 60’S & JOIN THE LEFTIST ESTABLISHMENT! LIKE FATHER LIKE SON!

  8. This really is a non event. Ratings Trump everything. Look at the ratings of the networks that trash Trump. They are in the toilet. When you go in the toilet you get paid a lot less for the commercials you run. All of this is really simple economics.
    By the way, I am not a fan of Chris Wallace. Why Fox feels the need to be unbiased with people that try and gut them like a fish is puzzling to me.

    • Mr. Wallace is a stooge pigeon for CNN. Pres. Trump does not own him, and the other stooges at Fox who parrot the political filth they call news.

    • I don’t like any of these three. I don’t watch any of these three either. You remember before the 1st dem debate and Fox was told they would not be allowed inside the debate hall. That was after Judge Jeanine made her opening statement about Ilhan Omar. Then we didn’t see the Judge for a couple of weeks. Martha and Bret tried to get her fired because they wanted to be able to be at the debate. I don’t like any of these back stabbers.

  9. I didn’t think the comments rose up to the headline at all. I’ve heard the president remark about the difference in the two Wallaces. Bret Baer is a very respected “reporter” and never malicious at all. And Martha – she is right to say they don’t work for Trump. What nonsense. Someone is trying to swing FOX away from straight news on their “News Programs”!!

    • dress the pig any way you want.
      Trump’s first debate Wallace was all over the place along with the
      blonde sitting next to him.
      Are you so alarmed to day fox news is falling towards the trash.
      Fall back in time Jimmy Carter Bill Clinton B Obama and almost Hillary.
      THINK ABOUT IT.

  10. SO DISAPPOINTED IN MARTH MCCALLUM. I KNEW BRET BAIR AND MIKE WALLACE WERE RATS, BUT NOT MARTHA. I WON’T WATCH MIKE AND NOW I CAN CROSS BRET AND MARTHA OFF MY LIST TOO. A SHAME CAUSE SHE SEEMED PRETTY NICE. TWO FACED PEOPLE.

  11. The “Fourth Estate” journalists are supposed to be the republic’s witnesses who report factual information. The political left has over time, seduced and suborned the profession to where it is now only the left’s cheerleaders.

      • CNN is still the Communist News Network as is MSNBC . Nothing but left wing
        propaganda. New World Order as dreamed of by the 4th International and put into
        action by George Bush 41. Trump is cutting them off at the pass. They are irate. .

      • The “other side” has points but whether or not they’re valid is another story. If one network constantly reports false stories which they’ve had to correct many times and the other proves to be accurate 90% of the time then there is no equal standing with both networks. Therefore, why would I waste my time trying to figure out which story is true out of the bunch? I’d rather get 90+% accuracy then pipedreams and wishful thinking by people who still haven’t gotten over the fact that Trump kicked Hillary’s ass.

      • It’s like this: I have listened to both sides, & without a doubt, know more truth comes from Fox News than any of the rest of the Media. But that is not true for everyone on fox news, Some just repeat what other news outlets are reporting, but a few of them do the research & tell the truth. Fox is the ONLY news outlet that at least has some truth in their reporting.

      • It like this: You go and making it sound like, only the Trump supporters are the one’s that want to only hear one side of the news. What about the Lame Stream Media that only reports their side of the “Hear Say” 3rd and 4th hand news, slathered in opinion…Just once it would be refreshing to hear them actually commend him for his great accomplishments, instead of making the bad guys heroes and victims

  12. How SHAMEFUL. Now I know why I don’t care for these hosts on Fox. I like Tucker, Hannity, & Ingram! Hate to say it, but I am very disappointed in fox news!

      • Or maybe some of the hosts are hearing their own conscience, and choosing truth over the lying demagoguery that Trump represents???????? Trump just stabbed our Kurdish allies in the back, so he’s the chief role model for backstabbing. Get real.

        • a
          As a Christian, I am aware that it is not wise to make idols of any human being, for we all have feet of clay. I watch ALL the news channels, even the ones I hate. Trump is not God, but he certainly is not the antiChrist, as so many on the left believe. Anyway, your attempt to present moderation about this is commendable, and probably takes guts!

        • Kurdish Allies, my ass. None of those countries are allies. But they are more than happy to take our money, & have our troops come ouer & give their lives, to fight the rest of the crazies that don’t like. Trump is right, bring our troops home, & build up our Military for if & when we will need it. Since the second world war, these have only been political wars, with no end in sight.

        • The Kurd’s where our enemies until the lines in the sands changed and the winds of war shifted during the Obama rein. Trumps with draw of the 26 troops in the area, just prior to taking out al-Baghdadi the leader of the Islamic State. Was probably one of the greatest moves…pull the troops, broker a deal to protect them, and then bomb the shit out of a very bad person! and you think demagoguery? pick a different word!

    • I really noticed a change in the past two years, particularly since Roger Ailes left.
      It seemed the hosts, like Shep Smith, felt more free to express themselves. Shep “came out” as a gay, then he began making sly remarks. Chris Wallace is a registered democrat. I was saddened to learn that Bret Bair and Martha McCallum made unpleasant remarks about President Trump. Every thing he says seems to be twisted to mean something else. On the other hand Sean Hannity is really partisan.

    • But Karen, you do realize (I hope) that in spite of the Fox News banner constantly on the screen, Hannity, Judge Perro (or whatever), and Laura Ingram are all OPINION anchors. It’s anything but “news.” These people, as well as “fox and friends” are all opinion and have no connection with truth or reality. They are mere sycophants spouting a lying, cheating, corrupt party line.

      • At least they are honest and admit their shows are opinion.
        Not like CNN that calls itself news.
        CNN should change it’s name to “CON”.
        “Communist opinion network”

      • Scott: Apparently you don’t pay very close attention to what is being said. The people you mention do a very good job of reporting the truth, compared to others.

      • At least they are not holding themselves out to be unbiased, objective news as do CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSLSD, LGBQTNBC, Chris Wallace, et al and PBS.
        Hannity, Tucker, Ingram, et al CLEARLY let you know they are opinion NOT news.

    • These are all “News” people in comparison to anything on, especially CNN and MSNBC. What they said didn’t sound awful to me. Chris Wallace is always more contentious in his interviews – with everybody. Bret never takes that tack in his, but he’s good! And that is compliment to any news person in the USA today!!!

    • True, but his base is not enough to win elections. At BEST, it only represents 1 in 3 people, and Trump only won the electoral vote because three Democratic strongholds flipped. In all those states, Trump is behind by double digits and should lose all three in 2020. IN addition, Trump is behind in at least 4 more states he won in 2016. Finally, the support for impeachment and removal is increasing every day.

        • Hey doc. Just suppose Trump gets kicked out or loses the election. How will they get us REAL patriots that know from knowledge that it’s because of a coup that started with his election, to be led by the leftist assholes? There is a movement in America that says HELL NO!!! Don’t doubt me. Many of us still believe in better dead than red.

          • No Mason, you’re not about “better red than dead.” You have been gaslighted with absolute lies and deception to such an extent that you may believe you are about that, but the facts.. reality… is a different story. Try stepping back and looking at objective reality. Don’t be such a goose-stepping fool. Our nation is at stake.

      • Scott27,You must remember, The wall has shut off a lot of Democrat voters and some have even been deported back to their home land so they will not have the
        numbers voting in the next election. Trump should be a shoo in. Especially if
        low IQ voters don’t vote. Democrats do not have many high IQ voters. That’s why
        they are Democrats.

      • Well doctor, lets just wait & see what the final results are after the election. Trump was behind Hillary in all of the polls in 2016, but still won. I believe he will win 2020 by a landslide.

      • Doctor, all the polls in the last election had Trump behind in almost every one of them. So you think you can trust polls???

        Start thinking for yourself and then you won’t need polls.

      • What difference does it make why Mr. President Trump won the Electoral College? That changes nothing! Mr. President Trump is POTUS period! So Cankles won the popular vote…she brought a ping pong ball to a football game. She truly was the biggest LOSER, but a LOSER none the less. And if anyone deserves that title it is Hillary!

    • Wonderful! But as the founder of the GOP said, “a house divided cannot stand.” I have never seen the GOP more fractured, and more and more republicans are turning away from Trump – – – for no other reason that Trump’s behavior. Many are dismayed by his horrible mess he has created in Syria which . . . AGAIN . . plays right into the hands to Putin and Assad and ISIS. Our ally, the Kurds, were BETRAYED by Trump, he left them to be slaughter, and now they are seeking protection from Putin and Assad. American forces are being shelled by Turkish forces – – a complete nightmare . . one where ISIS prisoners are being released.

    • I agree Martha is off my list now …I knew the other two Brett… and Chris were traitors to Fox n we conservatives I hate to give up Martha but if she not rue to her show I am done with her!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Linda , you are right,,, We Trump supporters have taken enough BS from the main stream media,,,,, if we don’t think FNC is being fair , we don’t have to watch them anymore ! Good riddance to Shep Smith. Same for Chris Wallace, and Juan Williams !

    • Chris Wallace needs to be taken off the show he is a sneak in the grass he trys to get at Trump in anyway he can maybe Trump shouls sue then like he is with cnn news

    • Right, Judy. The last thing any of you want is the truth. Better to blindly follow the cult leader than think for yourself, do some research and fact checking… Horrors. You don’t want THAT.

      • And you Scott, want to replace Trump with Joe Biden who admitted on camera to blackmailing the Ukraine government over one billion dollars, and you want to lecture us about truth??? WTF!

      • Scott: why don’t you follow your own advice & do some fact checking, even though it is against the principal of any Democrat & the RINOs.

  14. This is a prime example of why I don’t watch these Fox newscasters anymore. If you follow the money, it will most definitely lead to non-other then George Soros.

  15. We’ve never watched FOX news and certainly wouldn’t start now. But we have friends who USED to watch Fox news…before they changed to liberal. I have a feeling that whoever used to head Fox news are turning over in their graves

    • We all knew about Fox News and these three all being left leaning, that’s not news to us or the President. And you’re right, OAN is a much better news source. I turned off Fox totally when they brought Donna Brazil on. They sank to rock bottom with her.

        • At least today, the hyperbolic, abusive language is less evident. I’m glad for THAT! People like Scott27 and It’s Like This are just trying to show us that we would do well to try to examine a case from all sides. What’s wrong with that? PS I’m still a conservative!

        • And you Scott, want to replace Trump with Joe Biden who admitted on camera to blackmailing the Ukraine government over one billion dollars, and you want to lecture us about truth??? WTF!

      • OMG, you couldn’t take even the tiniest amount of truly “fair and balanced”, now, could you? At the end of the day, you want to be spooned only ONE side of the story. And you swallow it eagerly.

    • It’s all dirty Ryan up to his no-good he’s on the board everyone call and leave a message they’ll be a lower 80 just like CNN when we all leave to the other side. Wallace is a dirty Democrat anyway he never fairly ask questions in the fox Sunday. he’s a loser like his father

  16. The majority of Americans voted Donald Trump into office. You may not like him but he got elected. Stand behind him and help him. Congress do your job. Get things done. Stop the bullshit. Do what people elected you to do.

      • You are correct but we have a Constitution that says we need to go by the Electoral votes to determine the real winner.- Trump won BIG.

        • No actually, Trump did not win big, just as his inaugural crowd was not the biggest in history. In three states, won by a total of around 70,000 votes, had gone the other way (Dems made a mistake and stayed home), Trump would have lost the electoral college as well as the popular vote.

          • The reason dems stayed at home is because your party manipulated the election to make Hillary be the front runner instead of Sanders so democrat voters got angry. Then you accuse the Trump campaign of meddling with the election.

      • I firmly believe that Pres. Trump also won the popular vote. There were horrid abuses of the system by the Dems. In a farm community near me, passports from Haiti were accepted as legitimate for voting ! I We must realize that in Dem areas like California and the SW there would be rampant fraud.
        Sometime last year our county in FL sent a notice that cards we had as IDs for vote were no longer required !
        They never said why.

        • Brenda, I agree with you. I believe Trump actually won the popular vote as well. Sadly, we will never know, as none of this will ever be checked into.

    • You are correct but we have a Constitution that says we need to go by t he Electoral votes to determine the real winner.- Trump won BIG.

      • No actually, Trump did not win big, just as his inaugural crowd was not the biggest in history. In three states, won by a total of around 70,000 votes, had gone the other way (Dems made a mistake and stayed home), Trump would have lost the electoral college as well as the popular vote.

        • Your right Doc but he still won. Deal with it. JFK only won by a very small margin against RMN and Nixon could have had a recount but he decided against it. DJT will win in 2020 and this impeachment hoax is nothing more then a political coup. The IG report and the Barr and Durham reports haven’t come out yet. As far as Fox news, I’m all for fair and balanced as long as they report the truth, unlike the state run media like CNN and MSNBC who are nothing but a propaganda arm for the DNC.

        • The reason dems stayed at home is because your party manipulated the election to make Hillary be the front runner instead of Sanders so democrat voters got angry. Then you accuse the Trump campaign of meddling with the election.

    • June, I’m guessing you are completely unaware that the ” House has passed more than 100 pieces of legislation, including legislation to combat foreign interference in our elections… and all 100+ pieces of legislation are sitting on Moscow Mitch’s desk who refuses to let the Senate even consider them. Please, educate yourself. It’s important for the future of this nation you profess to love.

    • June, the House has passed more than 100 pieces of legislation, including legislation to combat foreign interference in our elections, and all of those pieces of legislation are sitting on Moscow Mitch’s desk because he refuses to even debate any of them in the senate. So tell me again who is doing nothing.

  17. FNC, desperately trying to swirl itself down the toilet. It does not matter what Trump thinks of FNC, it is the viewers who matter, and many are leaving.

    • O,This is just another way the dems want to take Trump down. Please weather the storm like our Great POTUS has!
      Try, as I am, to ignore the “noise” and all of it is “NOISE”. I get fed up too!
      Try to raise up and support our own. If we put others down we can only fall on our knees. If we raise others up, we in turn are raised higher.

  18. well Fox get rid of Wallace he never was any good he has always riding on his dads’ coattails and Fox finally got tired of his crap and people know it and they also know that Trump has always put America ahead and look at it has changed this country ecomany is up jobs are record lows and this while the democrats keep throwing roadblocks in front of him just think of what could have happened if they had worked with him but no they hate him because he beat Hillary and the fact that he is not a career politician

  19. Whine, whine, whine, you greasy headed trump-butt-bumps all you want, but dats not gonna help you while trump-ah-hump is on his way into Russia to be wit Snowden. hahahahahhahahahahahahahah

    • You are not the real RedMad. You are a fake troll. The real RedMan tells the truth about slavery and climate change and what the white man continues to do to black people.
      I know because I’ve read his posts, so just go away you FAKE RedMad wannabe.

        • now we know who the real cry baby is. If you don’t like the President then vote him out. Oh that’s right you know it will never happen so you use millions of money to try to throw him out of office and as we all know there is no there there. So guess you will be crying another 4 years and then after that Donald Trump Jr should run or maybe Evanka Trump. I can’t wait I love see the dems have melt downs and cry he injustice of it all.

        • I don’t get you idiots you do not like Trump which happens to be our Prsident if we like it or not we need to stand by his side, He has created jobs among other good projects but if we have idiots like all you Trump haters and Demo nut jobs he can’t run this country the way it should be you all bring him and us as a nation down and we are the laughing stock to other countries why because you all are not true american’s Please all you leave and find your own hell hole to live in and let the President do his job, If the Dems did’t have their heads so far up each others behinds and help his with important issues and help him discuss certain issues that are important he would be able to accomplish what this country needs.But No all of you are back stabbers like the media Sorry but not only did women burn their bras in the 60’s they also have lost respect for their own dignity and men have lost all their respect of being men they have become a bunch of tatty tail back stabbing hair pulling women that have lost their manhood because they have to talk smack on our President and country. How very sad what this nation has become.

      • What are you doing, talking about Redman or MJ? Typical Trumper – – always tearing people down, and totally intolerant for people who don’t just regurgitate right king propaganda. I guess that is typical of cult members – – always attacking outsiders, always excusing the behavior of the cult leader, and also filled with HATE for someone of their own group who begins to question at all.

  20. How is it that the left leaning networks can continually attack Trump without being held to a negative standard yet Fox hosts are expected to be ‘Fair and Balanced’ but with a tinge of negativity towards Trump?
    If Fox continues to sneak in attacks against Trump they can expect their viewers to abandon them as we did with Smith and it will follow we will do the same with others that seem to have an anti-Trump agenda like Williams and Napolitano.

      • Not until someone with balls, Republican or Democrat get square in Trump’s face tell this President he is not a Dictator, he will continue use the Constitution document as his toilet paper.
        Trump’s ass need to go behind bars and take all of these FAKE internet so-call news outlets with him (Renewed Right, Patriot Pulse, Patriotic Viral News, Family Survival, Conservative Zone, America Liberty Report, Republican Pundit, and other bullshit news that came out the gutter when this moron became President).

        • Amen, Joseph, time to take out the American version of Benito Mussolini and all his fascist friends. Trump is not making America great, but he his making Russia more powerful. Way to screw up the situation in Syria and betray our allies, Demented Donnie!

    • Right, Dianne, because the LAST thing you and your ilk want is any truth or reality brought into the picture. Much easier, and much less thinking effort, to just follow the cult leader’s words and obediently follow. So much easier for the not-very-intelligent.. right?

  21. Linda, I think the word you want is ratings. Afghanistan is and has been an unwinnable mess for decades. The people there worship a religion that ignores basic human rights esp that for women. Mayhem and murder are the order of the day for these fanatic Muslims. Their idea of national gov is to kill all those who oppose. barbaric. So, either USA can have a Charlie Wilson plan to rapidly rebuild this nation into the 21st century, moving from medieval times, with hospitals, modern schools, etc, or leave – for all we are doing there is prolnnging agony not only for them, but the USA as well.

  22. Am I pray your writings go way down for criticizing our president I think Trump is doing a wonderful job and you people need to leave him alone

    • You are a cult member that is sticking their heads in the sand and not willing to look at Trump’s TEN verified violations of law obstructing justice (in Mueller Repurt), his three offers to have a foreign country illegally be involved in our elections, of Trump’s crimes he did with Cohen (which landed Cohen in prison today), and of the manipulation by the used of Giuliani and his sabataging decent people’s careers (Amb. to Ukraine) so he could get dirt for the elections. You also miss, Linda, that Trump has funneled over $110 million in money from taxpayers into his own pockets . . . yet another law violation.

    • I AGREE LINDA TRUMP HAS DONE SO MUCH GOOD FOR THIS COUNTRY MORE THEN ANY OTHER ONE AND THAT GOES FOR OBAMA HIM AND HILLARY SULD US OUT TO IRAN
