Fox News’ Chris Wallace used his speech at the Newseum to call out the President for his attacks on the free press.

“I believe President Trump is engaged in the most direct, sustained assault on freedom of the press in our history,” Wallace said in a speech Wednesday honoring the First Amendment.

“Ours is a great profession — maybe the best way to make a living anyone ever came up with. Think of it. We are paid to tell the truth — to cut through all the spin, all the distractions — and tell the American people what is really going on.”

Standing firm, Wallace promised, “We will endure. So will the Freedom of the Press.”

Wallace, himself, has been the target of Trump’s attacks in the past. The President called him “nasty & obnoxious” in November.

After Wallace’s speech at the Newseum, right-wing media was sent into a frenzy. Red State said he had “lost his mind.” While PJ Media published a rebuttal calling former President Obama the true enemy of the press.

Trump fans on social media cried that Wallace was becoming “part of the swamp” and called him a “closet dem” saying he needed to “move on” to CNN. Some even threatened to quit watching Fox until they gave Wallace the boot.
