Fox News anchor Julie Banderas on Monday fired back at President Trump after he tore into a pair of Fox News reporters over their coverage of the government shutdown.

“This is NOT right,” Banderas tweeted. “I stand by my colleagues [John Roberts] and [Gillian Turner]. They don’t deserve this. No reporter does.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“They are doing their jobs and reporting the facts,” she continued. “They are not opinion journalists and deserve the respect from the [White House] they cover.”

Banderas was just getting started.  One Twitter user responded, writing, “Can’t stand some criticism, time to find a new line of work.”

Banderas pushed back, “We can and do stand plenty of criticism every day which is fine coming from everyday viewers. Our jobs are not meant to please others. But the office of the @POTUS ought not to be the one lashing out. That’s not how this country works. That’s not how Freedom of the Press works.”

Another follower wrote, “You’re one of my favorites Julie but you missed the point on this one by calling it “not “ right. Everyone is entitled to have and express their opinion. You can disagree but calling it not right goes a bit too far…”

Banderas hit back on that one too, tweeting in response, “By going on Twitter and insulting two of our journalists @realDonaldTrump is putting a target on their backs. In turn his followers will then attack @johnrobertsFox and @GillianHTurner in support on Twitter. Bullying journalists is not Presidential. Period.”

Another Twitter user accused her of only standing up for Fox reporters, asking, “Very true. But where have you been the last few years? Trump has criticized virtually EVERY OTHER REPORTER ON THE PLANET (other than Fox). Where were you when targets were being put on their backs?”

Banderas tweeted, “I have always stood up for journalists no matter what network they work for. We all should support each other.”

Show your support for President Trump!
