Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday slammed White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany for questioning the religious beliefs of White House reporters.

"I spent six years in the White House briefing room covering Ronald Reagan," Wallace said during his Sunday broadcast.

"I have to say, I never — and in the years since too — I never saw a White House press secretary act like that. I have to say that if Kayleigh McEnany had told Sam Donaldson and me what questions we should ask, that would not have gone well."

He went on: "Kayleigh McEnany isn’t acting like she’s working for the public. She acts like she is what she used to be, which is a spokesperson for the Trump campaign."

McEnany on Friday said she found it "interesting to be in a room that desperately wants to seem to see these churches and houses of worship stay closed" after reporters told her President Donald Trump had no legal authority to override the authority of governors and reopen religious buildings amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump on Friday announced that his administration had issued guidance deeming places of worship "essential" during the pandemic.  

"Some governors have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics essential but have left out churches and houses of worship. It's not right," Trump said during his announcement at the White House. "So I'm correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential,"
