A Fox News interview took a turn for the worse when "Fox & Friends" correspondent Griff Jenkins walked away from a man mid-interview after the man began musing about an alleged coverup behind former FBI Director James Comey's firing.

Reporting from a diner in Bethesda, Md., Jenkins asked a man identified as Pat Flaherty about the president's decision to fire Comey from his post as FBI Director.

"What do you make of what’s happening in the country right now and President Trump’s leadership?" Jenkins asked Flaherty.

Apparently not a Trump supporter, Flaherty answered, “I think people are starting to care now and realize we’ve got some pretty weak promises made by somebody who doesn’t understand we’re not in the golf business, and we’re not building buildings."

"He’s working for me now," Flaherty said, referencing Trump.

Directly asking about Comey's firing, Jenkins asked the man, “What do you make of the firing?”

Saying that the firing should have "been done much earlier," Flaherty added, "I think — not to be too Machiavellian about it — why does it take such a long time for these guys to arrive at this conclusion? Is it because we’re getting too tight in finding out too much information linked to [Russian President Vladimir Putin]?"

Seemingly nonplussed by Flaherty's answer, Jenkins said, "Well, we're tight on time," and abruptly stood up mid-interview to walk away from the man.

Jenkins then moved on to another diner as the video segment cut out.
