...That's kind of Lesley Stahl's job...

Fox News Monday morning did its usual propaganda pitch for President Trump, defending the lying leader's responses during his rare "60 Minutes" interview which aired Sunday night.

"Fox & Friends" host Ainsley Earhardt told viewers, "people — many Republicans thought it was disrespectful and obnoxious," referring to "60 Minutes" veteran journalist Leslie Stahl asking actually questions of the President of the United States, and expecting actual answers.

"Many people thought it made him look better because he did answer everything correctly," she claimed, albeit falsely. "But she gave a tough interview, and when you’re a journalist, you want to ask tough, fair questions. Many people had a problem, though, with the fact that she was interrupting him a good bit."

Stahl interrupted Trump when he lied. Good journalists are supposed to do that (cc: Chuck Todd, who should take notes.)

"Hats off to President Trump, who will go up against any journalist, even the ones who aren't in favor of him, and answer all the questions," Earhardt said, falsely.

Fox's Varney praises Trump responding to Lesley Stahl Qs as "a remarkable contrast between this president and any president in my lifetime."

Ainsley Earhardt adds, "Hats off to President Trump, who will go up against any journalist, even the ones who aren't in favor of him."

Trump, since he admitted to NBC News' Lester Holt that he fired Comey to end the Russia investigation, has all but never given an interview to any outlet that is not pro-Trump.

"It’s been a while since we’ve seen Trump’s rhetoric challenged in any significant way in a television interview," The Washington Post's Philip Bump said in an analysis of some of the questions asked and answers Trump gave during the interview.

Earhardt doubled down on Twitter, where there are actual people with reality-based opinion, unlike her fellow Fox News sycophants.

She tweeted that Trump was "peppered endlessly" with questions from Lesley Stahl during the "60 Minutes" interview.

Earhardt apparently was surprised – and dismayed – when the internet did not fall in line with her spin.

She deleted the tweet after being mocked – take a look at some of the responses:
