Donald Trump and his reported ties to Russia have dominated the news cycle since Election Day, but not everyone is happy to hear about it. After Fox News viewers and the president labeled the story as "fake news," one network host is pushing back.

Fox News on Trump

In what has become a common theme in recent months, Donald Trump has labeled any and all negative reporting about his administration as "fake news." While the former host of "The Apprentice" has had to deal with backlash on various issues, it's been his alleged link to Russia that has caused the most damage.

During his campaign for president, the billionaire real estate mogul raised red flags about the Kremlin on more than one occasion. From his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin, to his refusal to release his tax returns, to the multiple confirmed reports that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee in his favor, Trump continues to deny the allegations against him. While Trump supporters have stood by his side, one host on Fox News decided to set the record straight during a March 2 segment.

Joining Fox News host Bret Baier on Thursday night was network political director and contributor Chris Stirewalt. While the two discussed the most recent bombshell that exposed Attorney General Jeff Session's communication with a top Russian offical, Baier was forced to chime in and clarify that the news in question was not false.

"I get all these tweets and Facebook posts about why are you covering it? It is fake news and there is no 'there' there," Bret Baier said.

"You did have the attorney general recuse himself today," Baier stated, before explaining, "It is news." "Why doesn't he (Sessions) remember that meeting in September when Russia is in the forefront of election news at that moment?" the Fox News host wondered, while asking, "why doesn't he clean it up afterwards?"

Russian trouble

Prior to the comments made by Bret Baier on Fox News, the New York Times reported that the White House has finally admitted that retired Gen.

Michael Flynn was in contact with Russian officials late last year. In addition, Trump's son-in-law, Jarred Kushner, joined in on the meeting, which was also never disclosed. As information continues to be reported, it remains to be seen how Donald Trump responds moving forward.
