Krauthammer: Comey Firing Has Sent the Press 'Over the Edge'
Charles Krauthammer joined Tucker Carlson tonight to react to a CNN interview in which host Anderson Cooper noticeably rolled his eyes at White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.
Conway was appearing on Cooper's show Tuesday night to discuss President Donald Trump's decision hours earlier to fire FBI Director James Comey.
Cooper rolled his eyes when Conway offered her response to the show playing soundbites in which Trump praised Comey on the campaign trail last year.

Conway said this morning on "Fox & Friends" she encounters sexism often when she goes on TV for interviews.
Krauthammer said the press is and has always been anti-conservative, but its coverage of the Trump administration is a "special case."
"There is a particular edge to the coverage. And it's as if the Comey episode ... has sort of sent people over the edge, to the point where they think there really are no journalistic limits or journalistic restraints," Krauthammer said.
Tucker asked why the media has such a knee-jerk negative reaction to Trump.
Krauthammer said for many on the left - and some on the right, as well - it comes down to a question of fitness for the role of commander-in-chief.
"I think there's a lot about his persona that simply repels people," Krauthammer said. "And that spills over into how they treat him journalistically, which I think ought not be the case."
