Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts said Friday that President Trump “glared at me like I’ve never seen him glare at me before” after he asked the president a question about his relentless attacks of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
“Oh, it’s never a dull moment,” Roberts replied to Fox News co-anchor Jon Scott, who had said that covering the Trump White House “keeps your beat interesting, doesn’t it?”

“[The] president not happy with us this morning either,” Roberts said. “He glared at me like I’ve never seen him glare at me before.”
“Whoa,” replied Scott. “We’ll have to get to the bottom of that.”
The incident Roberts was referring to was captured by ABC News White House correspondent Jonathan Karl in a video he shared to Twitter.
Upset with Fox? Just now on the South Lawn, the President took questions from several reporters, but ignored @johnrobertsFox, avoiding eye contact with him until he started walking away and glared at him. pic.twitter.com/iECiU7KS7E

Trump told Fox Business anchor Bartiromo in an interview that aired Friday morning that McCain gave a controversial dossier of claims related to Trump and Russia to the FBI for “very evil purposes.”
“If you realize, about three days ago it came out that his main person gave to the FBI the fake news dossier. It was a fake and a fraud, it was paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. They gave it to John McCain, who gave it to the FBI for very evil purposes. That’s not good,” the president told Bartiromo.
“It was a rather chilly March morning,” Roberts tweeted of Trump’s look.
