Fox News Anchor Bret Baier Condemns Trump: ‘Body Slamming’ Reporters is ‘Not OK’


On Friday afternoon, CNN conservative commentator S.E. Cupp criticized Fox News personalities for not coming down on President Donald Trump for his comments lauding Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MT) for his assault of a journalist. But not long after Cupp’s criticism, one of the network’s signature faces indulged her.

Special Report anchor Bret Baier ripped the president on Twitter Friday for his complimentary remarks on Gianforte.

“‘Body slamming’ or threatening journalists for asking questions and doing their job is not ok. And shouldn’t be,” Baier wrote. “That’s all.”

Cupp expressed her approval of Baier’s Trump condemnation.

But some critics thought Baier didn’t go far enough.
