Fox’s Steve Doocy predicted that Republicans and John McCain supporters would cause “mayhem” during Barack Obama’s acceptance speech in Denver at Invesco Field.

Doocy said, “You have got to figure that Republicans and noise makers and troublemakers are going to do their best to get in there in a large block so the moment that Barack Obama is there they will try to do a little mayhem.”

Fox’s Judge Andrew Napolitano suggested that “trustworthy” ticket holders could transfer their tickets people who may disrupt the event. Napolitano said, “If they give Steve a ticket because he is trustworthy and then hand the ticket to me. They don’t know I have Steve’s ticket. I don’t even know if you have to show an ID to get in.”

Doocy concluded, “But the big question, of course, is if there are a bunch of people with John McCain signs out there will the mainstream media even show those dissenters? Probably not.”
