Fox News host Chris Wallace revealed in a recent interview that sometimes it hurts his feelings when he’s attacked by President Trump.
Trump has indeed attacked Chris Wallace a few times over via Twitter.
President Trump recently tweeted:
Really pathetic how @FoxNews is trying to be so politically correct by loading the airwaves with Democrats like Chris Van Hollen, the no name Senator from Maryland. He has been on forever playing up the Impeachment Hoax. Dems wouldn’t even give Fox their low ratings debates……..
So, what the hell has happened to @FoxNews. Only I know! Chris Wallace and others should be on Fake News CNN or MSDNC. How’s Shep Smith doing? Watch, this will be the beginning of the end for Fox, just like the other two which are dying in the ratings. Social Media is great!

DailyCaller reports Fox News host Chris Wallace said in an interview published Monday that he sometimes feels “hurt” after President Donald Trump attacks him.
“I would say that, on the one hand I understand it,” Wallace told Deadline, referring to Trump’s criticisms.
“If I thought I’d done something wrong, it would bother me I didn’t think I’d done anything wrong. So in a professional sense it didn’t. But on some basic level I suppose it hurts your feelings a little bit to have the president of the United States, whoever he or she is, attacking you,” he said.
Wallace also said that Trump doesn’t “understand” the purpose of Fox News.
“I think that the president fails to understand what Fox News is all about, which is that we are covering the election, and there are two other two parties in the election, the Republicans and the Democrats, and we’re going to give equal coverage and equal exposure to both sides, and ask equally tough questions of both sides,” the anchor said.
“But you know to suggest that there’s something wrong with putting a Democrat on the show or covering a Democratic political event, just shows a fundamental misunderstanding of what Fox News is all about.”
Per TCO, Chris Wallace of Fox News, who has drawn the ire of many Trump supporters, probably didn’t win more fans on the right after he claimed “every side is going to come out a winner” in President Trump’s impeachment trial.
His claim contradicts a lot of evidence Democrats are devastated over their failure to secure witnesses.
Asked by reporters how he was handling the defeat on the witness vote, Senate Minority Leader admitted “It can’t get much worse.”
CNN Analyst Jeffrey Toobin reacted to the vote by saying “Trump won. I mean you know he’s gonna win this trial. He won on the issue of witnesses. He’s going to get acquitted, and that’s how history will remember what went on here”
I actually think every side is going to come out a winner in this.
The Republicans and the White House will be winners because the president will be acquitted and the trial to remove him from office will have failed.
I think the Democrats, who knew they were never going to get the president removed, will be able to argue, just as [Senate Minority Leader Charles] Schumer did, from now until November, that this was a cover-up and that all the Republican senators who are up for reelection in 2020 were part of that cover-up.
