President Donald Trump seemed to be harboring some anger at the Fox world Friday after Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo pushed back on the President’s John McCain insults.

“The President is not happy with us this morning,” Fox News reporter John Roberts said with a chuckle after Trump spoke to reporters on the South Lawn. “He glared at me like I’ve never seen him glare at me before.”

“Whoa!” said host Jon Scott. “We’ll have to get to the bottom of that.”

During Trump’s interview with Bartiromo, he bristled at her McCain line of questioning, saying that he thought she “wasn’t supposed to bring it up” but adding with a shrug “that’s okay, fake news every once in a while.”

Bartiromo pushed back, saying: “It’s not fake news, you just told me why you have an issue with him.”
