The co-host of Fox News’ Fox & Friends mocked Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” in Washington, DC on the show Sunday.
The “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” took place on October 30th at the National Mall and was led by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.
“There was this big rally put on by comedians, which many people unfortunately think are news people,” said Gretchen Carlson.
After her co-host, Steve Doocy, claimed the rally was “not supposed to be political” yet mainly “beat up on the right,” the show aired a clip of Stewart speaking at the rally.
“Yeah, it got political,” Gretchen Carlson said after the clip. “And he looks fancy in his suit, like he actually is a real news person.”
Fox & Friends then aired a clip from a previous segment of Geraldo At Large.
“I definitely would say there were more pockets of animosity here than at any Tea Party,” said Fox News contributor and conservative comedian Steven Crowder in the clip. “I had one gentleman actually, ironically enough, smack my camera out of my hand and grab my arm because I didn’t have my Canadian passport.
“There were people circling the Fox News van saying to blow up the Fox News van we have this all on tape. … If this is designed to restore sanity, it’s based on a divisive concept of referring essentially to all tea partiers as insane. That’s really what they’re saying. So you got a lot of that, a lot of vulgar signs, you know calling them teabaggers.”
An estimated 215,000 people attended the “Rally to Restore Sanity,” according to CBS News.

‘Vladimir Putin has something on Donald Trump’: Ambassador Sherman says the Kremlin must have kompromat
Former Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman concluded on Monday that Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin must have "something" on President Donald Trump.
"The latest reporting from The New York Times indicates that the thousands of troops that we have there, that the president moved, are now trapped. They don’t have an actual way out since Turkey has cut off the roads and the exit routes that they might use and so now there is the question of will there be an airlift? How will we get the U.S. troops out?" MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell asked.
"We haven’t had to get troops out like this since the fall of Saigon," Sherman replied. "This is going to be very, very difficult."

The newspaper reported, "In her testimony, she detailed a July 10 meeting she attended with senior Ukrainian officials, then-National Security Adviser John Bolton, and other U.S. officials in which the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, raised the issue of the investigations, the people said."
Conservative pundit blasts Mattis for not speaking candidly about Trump: He ‘is not a moral hero — he is enabling the criminal to escape’
When former Defense Secretary James Mattis announced his resignation in December 2018, many Never Trump conservatives lamented the departure of someone they saw as a voice of reason and sanity in the Trump Administration. Those Never Trumpers were anxious to hear what a post-White House Mattis had to say in an interview with NBC News’ Chuck Todd that aired on “Meet the Press” Sunday. But conservative Washington Post writer and Trump critic Jennifer Rubin, in her October 14 column, stresses that she wishes Mattis were speaking more “candidly” and frankly about his time in the White House and President Donald Trump’s foreign policy decisions.
