“A Fox News Channel anchor whose reaction to President Donald Trump’s comments on Charlottesville spread widely says she feels threatened but not deterred after a flood of angry responses from viewers to her words,” the AP reports. “Kat Timpf, of the show ‘The Fox News Specialists,’ said that she’s blocked part of her Twitter feed and stopped looking at emails. A day earlier, Timpf called Trump’s news conference disgusting and said ‘I have too much eye makeup on to cry right now.'”
Timpf’s comments on Trump even received some airplay on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show, the report notes..
“That left her vulnerable to attack by Trump supporters, who seem to take particular affront when the president is criticized on Fox,” the AP reports. “Both Timpf and Eboni K. Williams, a co-host who blistered Trump in a commentary on Monday’s show, inspired Twitter hashtags calling for their firing.”
