Fox News anchor Julie Banderas had some very stern words for President Donald Trump in response to the commander-in-chief’s unflattering words for a couple of Banderas’ colleagues.
Banderas took things back to the schoolyard and accused the president of bullying journalists.
The feud between President Trump and Banderas began with the president tearing into Fox News journalists Gillian Turner and John Roberts on Sunday.

The spat represents an unusual break between Trump and Fox News, one of the strongest Trump backers in the mainstream media.
Never thought I’d say this but I think @johnrobertsFox and @GillianHTurner @FoxNews have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations than the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN & NBC! Look to final results! Don’t know how my poll numbers are so good, especially up 19% with Hispanics?

Turner kept quiet about Trump’s remark while Roberts laughed it off at Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ recent White House Briefing.
But ultimately, it was Banderas who couldn’t keep it professional.
In the past, Trump has never shied away from attacking the media, most notably CNN, or “Fake News CNN,” what he typically refers to the left-leaning network.
Notably, he also went after political pundits Mike Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough back in 2017 in a tweet in which he referred to Scarborough as “Psycho” and said that Brzezinski was “bleeding badly from a face-lift.”
So far Trump has yet to respond to Banderas, who joined a growing list of pundits who’ve been critical of the president since the border wall battle.
