The remark came after Trump was asked by Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo about McCain in an interview that aired Friday.

Trump has repeatedly been in the news over his criticisms of McCain, and in the interview with Bartiromo he said he only talked about McCain in response to questions.

“Oh, it's never a dull moment,” Roberts replied to Fox News co-anchor Jon Scott, who had said that covering the Trump White House “keeps your beat interesting, doesn't it?”

“[The] president not happy with us this morning either,” Roberts said. “He glared at me like I’ve never seen him glare at me before.”

“Whoa,” replied Scott. “We’ll have to get to the bottom of that.”

The glare Roberts was referring to was captured by ABC News White House correspondent Jonathan Karl in a video he posted on Twitter.

 

“Just now on the South Lawn, the President took questions from several reporters, but ignored @johnrobertsFox, avoiding eye contact with him until he started walking away and glared at him,” Karl wrote to his more than 200,000 followers.

In an interview that aired Friday morning, Trump told Fox Business anchor Bartiromo that McCain gave a controversial dossier of claims related to Trump and Russia to the FBI for “very evil purposes.”

“If you realize, about three days ago it came out that his main person gave to the FBI the fake news dossier.

They gave it to John McCain, who gave it to the FBI for very evil purposes. That’s not good,” the president told Bartiromo.

“It was a rather chilly March morning,” Roberts tweeted of Trump’s look.
