'Doesn't He Know He's President?': Fox Hosts Stunned by Trump Calling Omarosa a 'Dog'

Fox News host Juan Williams joined Neil Cavuto on Fox Business after a Tuesday morning tweet attack from President Donald Trump calling Omarosa a "dog."

Williams was stunned and didn't hold back in blasting the president when asked his opinion by Cavuto.

“You just wonder — dog?” Williams said. “What is he thinking? Doesn’t he know he’s president?”

“That’s Donald Trump. That’s what he’s thinking," he added, describing the president's words as "offensive."

Williams suggested "traitor" would be a more appropriate description than the charged comparison to an animal, a form of slur Trump has repeatedly used to denigrate women, brought into even uglier focus as he lobs the insult at a black woman.

“I don’t know why you would stoop to the level to calling somebody a dog,” Williams continued. “He knows how people are going to react. So, is it intentional? I don’t know. I just think it’s not good.”
