On Wednesday's episode of "Starnes Country" on Fox Nation, Todd Starnes reacted to NBC host Savannah Guthrie's interview with the Catholic school teen at the center of the controversy from over the weekend.

Nicholas Sandmann was the student seen wearing a MAGA hat as Native American political activist Nathan Phillips approached and beat a drum in front of him.

In an interview for the "Today" show, Guthrie asked Sandmann if he owed anyone an apology: "Do you see your own fault in any way."

Sandmann said he had "every right" to stand near the Lincoln Memorial as Phillips did. He added that he would be happy to discuss the controversy with Phillips and meant no disrespect.

Starnes said that Guthrie "did with a mic what [Phillips] did with a drum: Badgering a boy on national television."

He said Guthrie "goaded" Sandmann into answering misleading questions.

Addressing Guthrie, Starnes asked the same question she had asked the Kentucky student: "Do you feel from this experience that you owe anybody an apology?"

Starnes also echoed President Trump's response to the incident, calling it a "symbol of fake news."
