Fox & Friends whines students were picking on the NRA during their ‘political’ walkout

'Fox & Friends' discuss student walkouts promoting stricter gun laws (Screen cap).

The crew at “Fox & Friends” on Thursday were not happy about the tens of thousands of students across the United States who walked out of class to protest congressional inaction on curbing gun violence.

“Ultimately, it was a political event,” said host Steve Doocy of Wednesday’s student walkouts. “What they were trying to do was try to pressure Washington into more gun control.”

The show then played clips of politicians such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) addressing the students who were gathered to protest in Washington, D.C.

Host Brian Kilmeade then accused Democrats of exploiting young people who are afraid of seeing their classmates shot to death to push for stricter gun laws.

“I think it’s great that these kids are active,” he said. “I think everybody is horrified that, over the last 20 years, it seems like every three months we’re looking at another horrific shooting… however, in the big picture, logic tells you that it is security that should be part of this conversation, where most of these protests were all about taking aim, pun intended, at the NRA.”

Doocy then chimed in to shame schools who helped organize students who didn’t want to see their classmates shot by a killer armed with an AR-15.

“Ultimately, it was about gun control,” he said. “And the schools organized it with the backers of this. It became a political event, a lot of people didn’t realize this.”

He then played a clip of Trump supporters Diamond and Silk attacking Democrats for “using” the students to push their agenda.

During a long and very contentious interview with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, CNN "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper snapped back at Donald Trump's righthand man for trying to mock him for not wearing a mask during the interview where Meadows was not in the studio.

After grilling Meadows for agreeing to designate Vice President Mike Pence as an "essential worker" so he can continue to campaign for Donald Trump after his office became a COVID-19 hotspot, the CNN host pressed Meadows why the president continues to refuse to wear a mask and doesn't demand it of his rallygoers.

Chris Wallace battles GOP chairwoman over laptop smear: ‘Do you have any proof Joe Biden took one penny?’

Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel on Sunday refused to say if she had any proof of allegations of corruption against Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son Hunter.

Fox News host Chris Wallace grilled McDaniel about the Trump campaign's smear against the Biden family on Fox News Sunday.

"Do you have any proof -- because he's denied it -- do you have any proof that Joe Biden every took one penny from either a foreign country or a foreign company?" Wallace asked.

"I think that's incumbent upon the press to start investigating," McDaniel replied. "I think what's frightening is we should have a free and fair press that should be looking at a laptop that has not been disputed by the Biden campaign to be authentic. These emails are deeply troubling as it looks like Hunter Biden is negotiating with a Chinese energy company to profit, not just for himself, but for his father."
