Fox & Friends Host Doocy Laments That Maxine Waters is Turning Congress Into a ‘Cable News Show’

Fox & Friends took on the explosive clash between Rep. Maxine Waters and Rep. Mike Kelly on the House floor over auto industry discrimination last week — and host Steve Doocy lamented that the congresswoman is making a mockery of the institution she serves. For his arguments in support of the auto dealership industry, of which he is a member, Kelly received a harsh tongue-lashing from Waters on the House floor. Fox & Friends backed Kelly’s argument against discrimination in the auto-industry, which he made the case for on the show Monday morning. “You’re backing people into a corner, people are tired of that,” Ainsley Earhardt said of Waters. “And so they’re finally speaking out, and now they’re doing it on the floor.” “Which is rare, there are rules where you cannot do that,” Doocy said about the spat between Kelly and Waters. “But suddenly Congress now looks like Continue reading "Fox & Friends Host Doocy Laments That Maxine Waters is Turning Congress Into a ‘Cable News Show’"

Fox News’ Earhardt: Chuck Schumer Opposing Iran Deal Withdrawal After Voting Against It Is ‘Un-American’

On Fox News’ Outnumbered today, Ainsley Earhardt said it’s “un-American” for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to now oppose withdrawing from the Iran deal. Schumer voted against the Iran deal in 2015, laying out his reasoning in a lengthy statement. This week, responding to President Trump‘s decision, he told reporters, “There are no reports that Iran has violated the agreement and to me, the greatest worries from Iran are not right now the nuclear side but rather what they’re doing in Syria, what they’re doing to arm Hezbollah with rockets, what they’re doing with ICBMs. To me, the right thing to do would have been to try and come up with our allies with an agreement on those issues and let the nuclear part of this continue as is because it’s not being violated in any way.” The Outnumbered hosts talked today about the politics of Continue reading "Fox News’ Earhardt: Chuck Schumer Opposing Iran Deal Withdrawal After Voting Against It Is ‘Un-American’"

Ainsley Earhardt Scolds Pol Who’s Fighting ‘In God We Trust’ Bill: ‘What Is So Wrong With Goodness?’

A Republican in the Minnesota State Senate is looking to pass a bill that allows schools to voluntarily display “In God We Trust” on posters, and what’s wrong with that, right? Well, a lot. For a quick and easy Supreme Court precedent on this, check out Engel v. Vitale, which examined the question of whether the reading of a “nondenominational prayer” at the start of the school day violated the First Amendment. (Spoiler alert: It does.) But the line of argument taken here by the opposition is that the use of the term “In God We Trust” is alienating to those who don’t believe in God, or those who refer to God by a different name. Which is a heck of a lot of Americans. But those Americans are in the wrong, or so Ainsley Earhardt would have viewers believe. Here to preach the word in a debate Continue reading "Ainsley Earhardt Scolds Pol Who’s Fighting ‘In God We Trust’ Bill: ‘What Is So Wrong With Goodness?’"

Fox & Friends Backs CIA Director Nominee: She Should Be ‘Proud’ of ‘Enhanced Interrogation’ at Black Sites

Fox & Friends went to bat on Monday for Gina Haspel — President Donald Trump’s nominee for CIA Director who is set to face a challenging Senate confirmation hearing this week — defending the career agent against concerns over her ties to torture. Haspel’s nomination has been a controversial one, given her job overseeing a “black site” in Thailand after the 9/11 attacks where terror suspects were tortured using techniques like waterboarding and sleep deprivation. Now serving as deputy director of the FBI, a number of lawmakers have voiced concerns with her nomination, including Sen. John McCain, who called the U.S. torture program “one of the darkest chapters in American history.” On Fox & Friends, Brian Kilmeade brought up a recent report that Haspel sought to withdraw her nomination for CIA Director last week, fearing the process would damage her reputation. From there, the Fox & Continue reading "Fox & Friends Backs CIA Director Nominee: She Should Be ‘Proud’ of ‘Enhanced Interrogation’ at Black Sites"

Fox & Friends Blasts NBC For Corrected Report on Trump Lawyer: ‘They’re Upset He’s Creating So Many Jobs’

Fox & Friends slammed NBC News on Friday morning for the outlet’s botched report claiming federal investigators wiretapped Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen. NBC News issued a full correction to its report a few hours after publishing the initial bombshell, noting federal investigators were monitoring and keeping a log of Cohen’s calls — not listening in to their contents. Pretty big difference. And Fox & Friends noticed, laying into NBC News for its error. “It was such a big story,” Steve Doocy said. “It was on all the channels where they were talking about it until it was discovered that NBC got the story completely wrong.” The show played a clip of Ari Fleischer (not the best spokesperson for truth, but alas) claiming NBC News’s botched report has to do with the idea that “the whole velocity and direction of the press is to blame Donald Trump Continue reading "Fox & Friends Blasts NBC For Corrected Report on Trump Lawyer: ‘They’re Upset He’s Creating So Many Jobs’"

Judge Napolitano Fires Back at Giuliani Over Call to Shut Down Russia Probe: ‘That is a Dangerous Argument’

Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano fired back at Rudy Giuliani — and his client President Donald Trump — over their arguments that the Russia probe should be shut down because the Justice Department is corrupted. Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt asked Napolitano on Thursday morning about Giuliani’s argument that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “should end the Mueller probe because there is too much government misconduct.” “It reminded all of us there is no collusion,” Earhardt added, (a strange statement to make without any evidence). “So why is this investigation even happening?” “That is a dangerous argument to make,” Napolitano replied. “There are 90,000 people work in the Justice Department. There are 8,000 FBI agents. These people are doing the work of protecting our lives, our liberty, and our property.” “For him to say that the Justice Department is out of control or that the Continue reading "Judge Napolitano Fires Back at Giuliani Over Call to Shut Down Russia Probe: ‘That is a Dangerous Argument’"
