On Sunday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to issue attacks on Fox News host Ed Henry. He did so in a series of retweets following an interview the conservative cable news host conducted with Mark Levin on the network September 29.
Per Mediaite, Levin, a conservative radio personality, seemed visibly annoyed with the Fox News host during an appearance on the Sunday edition of Fox & Friends when he was questioned by Henry about President Trump’s Ukraine scandal.
Henry pressed Levin, who vigorously defended the 45th president, about whether or not he believed that Trump did anything illegal in his July call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. He was referring to the call in which the president asked him to investigate conspiracies about Russian interference in the 2016 election as well as asking him to investigate claims pertaining to one of his political rivals, former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
“What crime was violated?” Levin said. “It’s not illegal. The question is whether Biden did something illegal. The president didn’t do anything illegal.”
In response, Henry asked Levin if he was okay with a president asking a foreign president to “dig up dirt” on a presidential candidate to which Levin insisted that the Fox News hosts line of questioning was dishonest, per Mediaite.
By the end of the interview, Levin candidly said that he did not take issue with Trump’s requests of the Ukrainian leader.
It seemed that the president was tuned into the Sunday morning Fox News show as he took to Twitter immediately after the show’s airing to retweet fans who were impressed with Levin’s handling of Henry’s questioning.
“Mark Levin just mopped the floor with Ed Henry,” said one user for whom the president retweeted.
Others even directed their feelings toward other Fox News anchors.
“The real one mark Levin just totally curved Ed Henry and his fake news,” the president echoed via a retweet. “Career is gone now! Can we face off Levin and worlds worst anchor Chris Wallace?”
Some even seemed to call for Henry’s job at the conservative cable news network.
“Love You Mark Levin for calling Ed Henry out on Fox News,” one person said, gaining a retweet from Trump. “Ed Henry has turned into fake news ship him to CNN. Get Ed Henry off FOX.”

According to a previous report by The Inquisitr, a poll released last week following news reports of the Ukraine scandal indicated that nearly half of Americans support efforts to impeach the president. On Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, announced an official impeachment inquiry into the president following reports of the Ukraine whistleblower. A NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist poll released Saturday found that 49 percent of people surveyed supported Democrat efforts to remove Trump from office.
Per The Inquisitr, the Saturday poll was just one of many that shows a shift by a growing number of Americans to support the efforts to remove Trump from office following his conduct with Ukraine.
