Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt said on Tuesday that she supported NFL players’ right to protest as long as they did not do it during the national anthem.
Fox & Friends began its Tuesday edition by rehashing the ongoing discussion about whether NFL players should take a knee during the anthem to protest systemic racism in America.
Co-host Brian Kilmeade complained that players were not playing their best because of disagreements with coaches and owners over the protests.
“This whole thing couldn’t be more of a mess,” Kilmeade opined. “This is going to set up an unbelievable lose-lose situation.”
Earhardt replied: “It’s interesting, though, the people that are fighting because the division in our country, are dividing the country! Football will never be the same. I just want to turn on the TV and watch a game, you know? And eat popcorn and pizza.”
“Listen,” she added, “I think, if you have a problem with the country, protest, do whatever you want, do it peacefully. You can take a knee, just don’t do it during the national anthem. Too many people have died for this country.”

Trump thinks impeachment is over after House vote
Following a vote by the Democratic House to table an effort by Rep. Al Green (D-TX) to approve articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, the president gloatingly told reporters "that's the end of it," and mocked the resolution as a "ridiculous project."
"The House of Representatives rejecting a bid to launch impeachment proceedings against President Trump, and President Trump declaring victory," reported CNN's Erin Burnett. "Telling reporters seconds ago 'We've just received an overwhelming vote against impeachment, and that's the end of it.' He went on to call it the 'most ridiculous project.' Riding high now over how the whole saga over his racist tweets is playing out."
This explains why Trump picked a fight with the four Congresswomen of color: analysis
On one hand, President Donald Trump almost certainly chose to mark out Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) because of his own deep-seated racism.
But there is likely another reason he is doing it, wrote Aaron Blake of the Washington Post's "The Fix" on Wednesday: because his core voters hate them as much as he does.
Blake cited a new The Economist/YouGov poll of 2016 Trump voters' opinions on several politicians. "As you peruse it, it becomes clear that the conventional wisdom about why Trump picked these targets is right: They were ripe for motivating the GOP base ... All of them are better known among Republicans than Democrats, which suggests that a steady stream of coverage in conservative media has elevated them as potential Democratic bogeywomen. Trump is tilling fertile soil. And in fact, they might already be his most effective foils."
