Fox News Sunday Host Chris Wallace had no opportunity this weekend to directly confront White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. In order to Fuchs & friends Host Brian Kilmeade did it for him.
About halfway through her appearance on this Tuesday morning show, Kilmeade made a comment McEnany made during her Friday press conference. “Boy, it is interesting to be in a room that desperately wants these churches and places of worship to remain closed,” she told reporters, some of whom are currently objecting to this apparent condescension.
As Kilmeade put it: “Part of the press was offended” before reading McEnany part of what Wallace said about her comments on his Sunday exhibition.
“Let me just say, Sam Donaldson and I at the Reagan White House, we were pretty tough on the White House press officers and we had never questioned our religious beliefs or were taught what to ask,” said Wallace . Kilmeade skipped the part where Wallace said that in his six years in the White House, “he had never seen a White House press officer like this before”.

“Have you questioned the religious beliefs of the press?” Kilmeade asked her directly.
“No, I never questioned the religious beliefs of the press,” she said before adding, “many of our journalists are great men and women of faith.”
McEnany said her comments were just trying to draw attention to the fact that “it was strange” that she was asked so many questions about why the Trump administration was pushing churches across the country again during a pandemic to open. “I was never asked why a liquor store is so important,” she added.
While Wallace would have probably asked a few more questions about McEnany’s nonsensical answer, that is Fuchs & friends The hosts went straight to the next topic.
