ABC News correspondent Kyra Phillips on Sunday was criticized for showing appreciation to President Donald Trump for the access he gives to the press pool.

“No matter what your politics are, I have to say that I appreciate the access @realDonaldTrump gives us on a regular basis and the ability to ask any question,” Phillips tweeted early Friday evening.

“Auditioning for Fox News?” one user tweeted in response.

“At which point he calls you an enemy of the people so often that his supporters start mailing bombs to journalists,” tweeted another user.

“This encapsulates much of media --- & reporters should be embarrassed she's let the cat out of the bag,” wrote journalist Michelangelo Signorile. “What does "access" matter if he doesn't answer questions & lies, or you don't ask tough questions?”

Fox News correspondent John Roberts defended wife Phillips.

“Many people have been criticizing my wife for this tweet,” he said. “I, and many of my other colleagues in the White House Press Corps are of the mind that while we don’t agree with the cancellation of the daily briefing, at least we have the chance to question the President directly... and sometimes several times a day. In Seoul, for example, he took questions for an hour and ten minutes. I, for one, would rather put questions directly to the President than hear canned answers from an aide.”
