Fox News host Steve Hilton, usually a fan of President Donald Trump and his administration, slammed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as a “child” and a “bully” for a profanity-laced fit at an NPR journalist.
And he demanded that Pompeo apologize to Mary Louise Kelly, cohost of “All Issues Thought of.”
“I’m a giant fan of the secretary,” Hilton started, noting he agrees with Pompeo on points corresponding to China.
However then he lit into him for his tirade against Kelly after she requested him questions he didn’t like about Ukraine.
Pompeo later doubled down, calling Kelly “shameful” and accusing her of violating the “basic rules of journalism and decency.”
However Hilton didn’t purchase any of it, and slammed him for “whining” concerning the interview.
“I hearken to NPR loads, and I can inform you that Mary Louise Kelly is among the only a few hosts on there who truly appears honest and isn’t completely biased towards President Trump,” he mentioned.
“For goodness sakes, Mr. Secretary, don’t be such a child. You must be capable to deal with powerful questions by now and don’t be such a bully. Foul-mouthed ranting at a reporter doing her job is a humiliation to you and the administration.”
“You must apologize,” he mentioned. “And other people will suppose far more of you for those who do.”
That could be unlikely on condition that Trump appeared to again Pompeo, on Sunday openly wondering why NPR even exists. Up to now, he has referred to as for ending federal funding for each NPR and PBS.
Hilton, like many on the community, usually speaks in assist of Trump. Trump has returned the favor, quoting him on Twitter, thanking him for the reward and encouraging his followers to watch Hilton’s present.
