Former MuchMusic VJ is so fed up with Trump's racism his rant is going viral

Fox News correspondent John Roberts is fed up with President Trump's refusal to denounce white supremacy, and he isn't shy about admitting it.

The Toronto-born anchor and former MuchMusic VJ took to air to express his displeasure after Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany dodged his question on the topic.

"For all of you on Twitter that are hammering me for asking that question, I don't care," Roberts says in the clip.

"Because it's a question that needs to be asked, and clearly, the President's Republican colleagues a mile away from here are looking for an answer for him, too."

"So stop deflecting," he says. "Stop blaming the media. I'm tired of it."

Roberts repeatedly asked McEnany to categorically denounce white supremacy during a press briefing at the White House on Thursday.

"[Trump] has condemned white supremacy more than any President in modern history," she said instead, adding that Roberts is "contriving a storyline."

And the drama doesn't end there.

McEnany then took to Twitter to direct Roberts to a report written by his wife, Kyra Phillips, a correspondent with ABC News.

"I would refer you to your wife's reporting from 21 hours ago," McEnany wrote, attaching a Tweet from Phillips stating that Trump denounced white supremacy. "[A]ccurate reporting I cited in the White House Press Briefing."

Although Roberts didn't directly reply to McEnany's quip, he did take to Twitter to share a statement supporting his argument that Trump has yet to explicitly denounce white supremacy.

Meanwhile, Canadians have been rallying in support of Roberts' rant on Fox News, applauding the Toronto-born anchor for his stern words.

"Canadian born journalist JD Roberts brings some MUCH (MUSIC) needed common sense to the political conversation and the political climate," one person cheekily wrote, referencing Roberts' former music career.

"Good ol' JD Roberts....we knew you still had the Canadian in ya!!" another person added.
