Fox News is often deemed a mouthpiece for the Trump administration because of their positive coverage.


But after Trump got upset with Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo, calling her "fake news" for bringing up his attacks on John McCain, he appears to be retaliating against her colleagues.

"Upset with Fox? Just now on the South Lawn, the President took questions from several reporters, but ignored , avoiding eye contact with him until he started walking away and glared at him," Karl posted to Twitter.

In response, Roberts noted, "It was a rather chilly March morning...."
