Brian Kilmeade Calls For U.S. to Meddle in Russia Election on Fox & Friends: ‘Why Don’t We Flick the Lights?’

Over the weekend, Fox & Friends anchor Brian Kilmeade fired off a Tweet suggesting that the U.S. should meddle with the upcoming presidential election in Russia — slated for March 18. On Monday morning, Kilmeade went all the way. “They’ve already proven — last week in testimony with all our intelligence chiefs out there, they said there’s already indications they’re messing with 2018 midterm elections. Whether it’s fake news through social media, through using these bots, whatever it is.” Kilmeade said. And the best defense, according to Brian Kilmeade? A good offense. “Nobody knows more than about cyber technology than us,” Kilmeade said. He added, “They have an election coming up. Why don’t we get Continue reading "Brian Kilmeade Calls For U.S. to Meddle in Russia Election on Fox & Friends: ‘Why Don’t We Flick the Lights?’"

Brian Kilmeade Suggests Trump Should Meddle in Upcoming Russian Election: ‘Payback Time’

Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade responded to special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three entities for election tampering by apparently suggesting President Donald Trump should get “payback” in the country’s next election. “Reading this Mueller indictment..our biggest problem Russians don’t fear or respect us @realDonaldTrump has to change that..they have an election coming up..payback time?” Kilmeade wrote in a tweet. The upcoming elections in Russia — slated for March 18 — will see current President Vladimir Putin duking it out with a bevy of contenders, but the incumbent is expected to be a shoo-in. Trump’s tweet is particularly noteworthy, as Kilmeade isn’t just any Fox News host — Continue reading "Brian Kilmeade Suggests Trump Should Meddle in Upcoming Russian Election: ‘Payback Time’"

Fox & Friends Grilling Leaves Ted Cruz Stuttering on Immigration Debate: ‘Those Polls Are Deceptive’

Senator Ted Cruz is predictably far to the right on immigration, but is he too far for Fox & Friends? The Texas senator appeared on Trump’s favorite morning show to discuss DACA and the plans before Congress on immigration. He told the curvy couch that Republicans are actually swinging to the left of Barack Obama’s policies and that these measures are sure to keep conservative voters home in the midterm elections. “We should not be granting citizenship for people here illegally,” Cruz said. “DACA covered 690,000 people. Why on Earth are Republicans trying to more than double, nearly triple that from 690,000?” “Because it’s a more accurate number,” Brian Kilmeade responded. “Tell that the steelworkers. Tell that to the truck drivers. Tell that to the American people we promised we wouldn’t do amnesty,” Cruz said. “But what about the people who are on the list?” Ainsley Earhardt chimed Continue reading "Fox & Friends Grilling Leaves Ted Cruz Stuttering on Immigration Debate: ‘Those Polls Are Deceptive’"

Fox & Friends Takes Aim at The View Over Pence Hate: Wouldn’t Criticize if He Was ‘Speaking to Allah’

Conservative firebrand Tomi Lahren joined forces with Fox & Friends on Wednesday to slam The View for taking jabs at Vice President Mike Pence. Yesterday, the ladies on ABC talked about Omarosa Manigault‘s latest comments on Celebrity Big Brother, particularly the ones where she said the vice president is “scary” and convinced Jesus tells him to say things. Several of the panelists snarked over this, and Lahren didn’t like that, not one little bit. “Who is [Joy Behar] to judge how often our vice president should speak to his lord and savior?” Lahren fumed. “It’s really disgusting. Not surprising, but disgusting.” Brian Kilmeade chimed in next, saying “If you want Joy Continue reading "Fox & Friends Takes Aim at The View Over Pence Hate: Wouldn’t Criticize if He Was ‘Speaking to Allah’"

Brian Kilmeade Turns Segment on Olympic Star Chloe Kim Into Sermon on Immigrating ‘Traditional Way’

Brian Kilmeade joined Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney this morning and their discussion focused on the Olympics. Specifically, the dynamic duo talked up 17-year-old American Chloe Kim‘s gold medal in snowboarding — which she won on Monday. It wasn’t long before the pair dispensed with the congratulations and launched into a sermon about the proper way to immigrate to America. “[Kim’s] parents leave South Korea in 1982 for a better life in America and they said when she won her gold, her dad says ‘that is my American dream,'” Kilmeade said. “Immigrating to the US the traditional way. You sign up. You apply. You go ahead and you serve and the next thing you know you are an American citizen and your daughter, in this case, wins a gold medal.” Varney took a moment to complain about all of those pesky immigrants who hate America, despite having Continue reading "Brian Kilmeade Turns Segment on Olympic Star Chloe Kim Into Sermon on Immigrating ‘Traditional Way’"

Brian Kilmeade Grills WH Spox on Employing ‘Two-Time Accused Domestic Abuser’: ‘You Got Burned’

Brian Kilmeade pressed White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah for an explanation on Tuesday as the White House continues to do damage control over the domestic abuse scandals surrounding Rob Porter and David Sorensen. The deputy press secretary gave a wide-ranging interview to Fox & Friends, where he was asked about FBI background checks and whether the White House staff is about to face a shake-up. Shah said that the Administration trusts the current clearance process, though Kilmeade grilled him and asked what’s going to change in light of the apparent failure to flag Porter’s record.
“You relied upon it and you got burned because you had two-time accused domestic abuser there at very sensitive position where perhaps he shouldn’t have been if that was fully exposed, so what changes now?”
Shah insisted that the administration has faith in the FBI and the evaluation process. He also Continue reading "Brian Kilmeade Grills WH Spox on Employing ‘Two-Time Accused Domestic Abuser’: ‘You Got Burned’"

Even Fox & Friends’ Brian Kilmeade Thinks Trump’s Military Parade Would Be ‘Waste of Money’

President Donald Trump’s idea to have a grand military parade, squeezing tanks and rows of troops onto the narrow streets of Washington D.C., has gone over like a really expensive lead balloon, with folks on both sides of the aisle dismissing the notion. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) called it a “fantastic waste of money to amuse the president” and even freedom caucus member Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) wasn’t fully on board, telling CNN’s John Berman that he doesn’t like “spending money.” You can add Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade to the growing list of folks concerned over how much this display of American military might would end up costing taxpayers. During a short discussion on the parade this morning, Kilmeade told fellow hosts Steeve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt that it seems wasteful. “I don’t know,” he said. “It seems like a waste of money.” This Continue reading "Even Fox & Friends’ Brian Kilmeade Thinks Trump’s Military Parade Would Be ‘Waste of Money’"
