"Fox & Friends" had some comforting words for their most loyal viewer in the wake of Democrat Doug Jones' upset defeat of Republican Roy Moore in Tuesday night's Alabama special election.
In reacting to Moore's shocking defeat in a deep-red state, the Fox hosts said that the election was in no way a referendum on President Donald Trump -- rather, it was a referendum on voters who were sick of men in power engaging in sexual misconduct.
"Jones caught a break when all these allegations came out against Judge Moore," said host Ainsley Earhardt. "The environment was very bad. The story, I felt like, was just horrific. It's hard for women especially to go to the polls and vote for him, even though those allegations are just allegations."
Despite the fact that there are also multiple allegations of sexual misconduct that have been leveled against President Trump, Earhardt suggested Alabama voters were more motivated to vote against Moore because of all the Hollywood sexual harassment scandals that have blown up over the past few months.
"This was not a referendum on Trump," she said. "I feel like this was a referendum on Harvey Weinstein."
