Political Stance and Personal Life
Chris is known to be a Democrat, as seen especially through his support of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and subsequent presidency. However, his comments regarding Trump and his support of some of the President’s criticized decisions has also brought criticism his way. Many people question this stance, as sometimes he shows an unbiased way of stating the President’s actions, meaning that he might not totally agree with the current reign in America.
As for his romantic life, there were rumors floating around that he had a romantic connection with Dana Perino, especially due to their on-screen chemistry, but these rumors were debased as it was revealed that Dana has been married since 1998. Sources believe that Chris is single, though at one point he tweeted about his children singing, which lead many to believe that he may be a single father taking care of his children; not so!
Is Chris Stirewalt on Social Media?
Similar to numerous journalist personalities, Chris is active online through having a social media account on Twitter, which he mainly uses to provide comments about recent political events, and a few quotes from other political personalities. He also promotes his work with Dana Perino as their podcast “I’ll Tell You What” continues to stay strong.
Aside from his Twitter account, videos of him are available on the Fox News website as well as on YouTube, which often shows clips of his appearances on television. He rarely shows any personal pictures, and one of the reasons there is little information about his family is because he does not mention anything about his personal life.
