Good episode? Give it some love!
Martha MacCallum is the host of Fox News’ The First 100 Days, which covers the beginning of the Trump Administration. I talked with her at Fox’s studio about meeting Trump, why he is the only GOP candidate who could have won, and how his celebrity plays into how we view him. She talked about the role of the media in today’s political climate, the atmosphere at Fox News, and how she got to where she is in her career.
