Fox and friends Co-host Steve Doocy on Wednesday morning was forced to repeatedly punch his co-host Brian Kilmeade, repeatedly explaining what President Donald Trump did to incite a riot and why he faces a second Accused.
Kilmeade, who a day before called on Congress not to impeach in order to appease violent Trump supporters, kicked off the president’s favourite morning show by essentially throwing an on-air tantrum over the news that the leader Senate majority Mitch McConnell could vote to sentence Trump to impeachment.
Amid several other House Republicans speaking publicly in favor of Trump’s impeachment for instigating an insurgent mob to storm the Capitol to prevent Congress from certifying the election of President-elect Joe Biden, Kilmeade grumbled that impeachment was a bridge too far.Fox and friends
“If Mitch McConnell is such a great politician, he understands that, as Brit Hume said and Jonathan Swan reported, there is no indication that the president has lost his base,” he said. “So if you really want to build on the president’s base and take the party in a subtle or dramatic new direction, why do it without them with just a few days? It does not mean anything!”
He then expressed his support for congressional censorship, which House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy would insist, saying more Republicans can join because it will “send a message” to Trump about his role in the outbreak of an insurgency, then they can “move on”.Fox and friends
Doocy, however, intervened to explain why so many members of Congress want the president to be held accountable for his actions and behavior before and during the Capitol Riots.
“Brian, you’re talking about people who work in Congress, and we’re talking about – Congress was attacked last week,” he said. “He was looted. There was a riot!
“It was the same for Portland every day, and no one left cared!” Kilmeade screamed, immediately falling back on one of Fox News’ favorite talking points of late.
“I don’t think what they were doing in Portland was trying to overthrow democracy,” Doocy retorted.
Later on the show, while Kilmeade was still angry with the impending impeachment vote and the potential GOP support for him, Doocy posed a question to the panel.
“Let’s put the shoe on the other foot,” he noted. “If a Democratic president did what happened last week, would Republicans in the House and Senate vote to impeach him if they could?” The answer is yes.”
Kilmeade, meanwhile, complained loudly that impeachment was unnecessary since Trump only had a week in office, arguing that it made “no sense” since he “was leaving anyway.”
“Members of Congress ultimately want to be held accountable,” Doocy retorted.
