Stephen Colbert critically commented on the appearance of former Special Representative Robert Mueller at the Congressional hearing on Wednesday during his Late Show monologue. But he did not believe, as Fox News host Chris Wallace, that it was a "disaster for the Democrats and a disaster for the reputation of Robert Mueller" was tomorrow, and President Trump promptly tweeted the quote to make him look better. "That's what you said this morning at 10:07, an hour and a half in a six-hour series of hearings," Colbert told Wallace as he sat next to him for a job interview. "So the motto of Fox News is:" We'll report and decide before it's over? "

Wallace insisted that he belonged to the" journalist tribe, "quoting his recent tough interview with the Trump administration official, Stephen Miller, as evidence of his objectivity.
