Donald Trump and his war with the mainstream media has officially taken over the political headlines. As the president and the press continue to butt heads, some at Fox News are now calling out the commander in chief.

Fox News on Trump

On Thursday afternoon, President Donald Trump called for a press conference at the White House to announce his new nominee for Secretary of Labor. After getting his announcement out of the way within minutes, the billionaire real estate mogul spent over an hour blasting journalists, newspapers, cable news outlets and other members of the press.

The entire incident resulted in immediate backlash from critics, but was praise by supporters of the president. As Trump continued his attack on the press in a series of tweets, the issue was front and center during a February 17 segment on Fox News.

Joining co-host Harris Faulkner, fellow Fox News host Chris Wallace appeared on "Kilmeade & Friends" on Friday afternoon. As expected, the issue of Donald Trump and his relationship with the press was brought up. Surprisingly, Wallace went on the attack and called Trump and his supporters out for their apparent hypocrisy when it comes to dealing with the media.

"We got plenty of criticism at Fox from President Obama during the last eight years and we didn’t fall into line because of that," Wallace said. Wallace went on to ask why it was OK to criticize the president when it was Obama in office, but not when it's Donald Trump. "If you don't like the idea that President Obama is telling the press what to do, you can’t like it when it’s President Trump, somebody a lot of viewers here might admire, telling reporters what to do," he noted.

Doubling down

Chris Wallace's comments come just one day after Fox News host Shepard Smith went off on Donald Trump due to his handling of the media at the press conference. "It's crazy what we're watching every day," Smith said, before noting, "He keeps repeating ridiculous, throwaway lines that are not true at all." In the aftermath of Smith's comments, Fox News viewers and Trump supporters reacted with hostility, as many called for the host to be fired from the network.
