Fox News’ John Roberts repeatedly asked the White House press secretary if President Donald Trump will denounce white supremacists – less than 24 hours after Roberts’ wife, a reporter for ABC, reported that the president told her personally that he did denounce it.

On Thursday, Roberts badgered Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany over whether President Trump denounces white supremacy today – even though McEnany told him the president did so the day before.

As it turns out, Roberts’ wife, Kyra Phillips, was actually one of those Trump personally denounced white supremacy to on Wednesday. Phillips didn’t just tweet the news, she tweeted it to her husband, @Johnrobertsfox.

On Wednesday (2:45PM on September 30, 2020), Phillips tweeted:

“Just now: @realDonaldTrump tells me he DENOUNCES white supremacists @ABCPolitics @ABCNewsLive @ABCWorldNews @ABC @johnrobertsFox”

After her press conference, McEnany tweeted Phillips’ post to Roberts, adding, “I would refer you to your wife’s post”:

“.@johnrobertsFox I would refer you to your wife’s reporting from 21 hours ago... accurate reporting I cited in the White House Press Briefing.”
