President Trump couldn't hide his disdain for "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace after the legendary anchor pressed House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) on the ongoing House impeachment inquiry.
 
The Hill reports:
 

Trump attacked Wallace over his impeachment coverage, including unfavorably comparing to him his father, in October as well.

In his interview with Scalise Sunday, Wallace pressed the No. 2 House Republican on his characterization of the diplomats who have testified before the House Intelligence Committee in the past week as "[Committee Chair Adam] Schiff's witnesses."

Wallace countered that all of the witnesses had worked within the Trump administration, with Scalise responding that senior State Department official George Kent, top Ukraine envoy Bill Taylor, and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch all testified they never witnessed impeachable offenses.

"With all due respect, that very badly mischaracterizes what they said," Wallace said. "They were asked, William Taylor, for instance, the acting Ambassador to Ukraine, was asked whether or not these were impeachable offenses. He said 'I'm there as a fact witness. I'm not there to pass judgment,' but he made it clear what he thought about what the president was doing."


Trump's frustration with conservative-leaning Fox News, more specifically, the network's news division has grown in recent months.
