Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts reached new heights on the mental midget media scale on Thursday after he pushed press secretary Kayleigh McEnany to say Does President Trump denounce white supremacists…TODAY?
Roberts and McEnany got into a heated exchange during the briefing when he asked her to make a “definite and declarative statement” denouncing white supremacism in all its forms on the president’s behalf.
McEnany answered the question by rattling off a long list of President Trump’s past criticism and denunciation of every far-right group by name.
But that wasn’t good enough for Fox News’ longtime veteran reporter who became visibly angry screeching ‘But what about today, you read a bunch of quotes from the past.’
John Roberts, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

“For all of you on Twitter hammering me for asking that question: I don’t care,” Roberts, 63, said on Thursday afternoon during a live cross from the White House lawn.
“Because it’s a question that needs to be asked and, clearly, the president’s Republican colleagues a mile away from here are looking for an answer for it, too,” he went on.
“So stop deflecting, stop blaming the media,” he said, spitting out, “I’m tired of it.”

Trump’s top spokeswoman pointed to the fact that the president condemned racism and distanced himself from the Proud Boys with reporters the day before.
Trump said Wednesday while calling for Democratic nominee Joe Biden to do the same for far-left group Antifa, which has been linked to recent riots in US cities.
“I’ve always denounced any form — any form, any form — of any of that, you have to denounce,”
Following Roberts’ angry outburst, McEnany took to Twitter to point out that the question to Trump came from none other than his wife.
“.@johnrobertsFox I would refer you to your wife’s reporting from 21 hours ago… accurate reporting I cited in the White House Press Briefing,” McEnany wrote in her missive, sharing Phillips’ tweet.
