Fox & Friends Attacks NBC Anchor Who “Questioned” Trump In An Interview: “It Seemed Like An Interrogation”

Fox's Brian Kilmeade: “How Disrespectful Was That?”

From the May 12 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): And we heard a lot from the president, although, you heard a lot from Lester Holt. Brian, you were talking about this a minute ago. They released at NBC a two minute and 34 second clip. During that, Mr. Trump, the president of the United States, was interrupted at least nine times by Lester Holt. We’ve put together a little montage of that just to give you a flavor of what the NBC interview was like.


You know what's different about that kind of interview -- and we've interviewed the president, and you only have a certain amount of time and you want to get as much as possible, but he did interrupt him a lot. Here's the thing though. After everything the president said, Lester Holt questioned him. “Oh, you said that? Well what about this?” Which -- it seemed like an interrogation. 

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Right, and if he had the same approach with President Obama, whose answers are longer, more drawn out, and, for many people who only get five minutes with the president, very frustrating. And do you remember when [Fox News host] Bret Baier interviewed the president, and he had to -- President Obama, and he jumped in a few times and say, “Listen, I only have a certain amount of time. I just want to follow up.” He was roundly criticized. “You got to let the president finish, you're being disrespectful.” How disrespectful was that?
