Moments after a colleague referred to Tuesday’s January 6 committee testimony as “stunning,” Fox News host Martha MacCallum downplayed new revelations about former President Donald Trump’s violent outbursts surrounding his efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

Former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified that Trump threw a plate in the White House dining room after he found out former Attorney General Bill Barr publicly said there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud, leaving “ketchup dripping down the wall.”

“I mean, I’m not sure that it really shocks anybody that the president just — knowing what we’ve seen, observing him over the years — if he got angry then he might throw his lunch,” MacCallum said. “I’m not sure. It’s obviously a very dramatic detail, and the way that she describes it, um, is. But I’m not sure if this is wholly out of character with the Donald Trump and President Trump that people came to know over the years.”

Similar to her remarks during last week’s hearings — when she said “not to say that it’s not truthful” to preface the testimony — MacCallum tried to include the pro-Trump perspective while acknowledging the former president was unable to back up his voter fraud claims with any evidence in court.

“And there’s a lot of people out there who obviously shared his feelings of frustration over the course of those days,” MacCallum said. “The problem was that they couldn’t back it up with anything in the courts and they couldn’t back it up with evidence they produced.”

Hutchinson also testified that Trump tried to grab the steering wheel and lunged at a Secret Service agent when he found out he wouldn’t be driven to the Capitol after his speech the morning of the riot.
