“Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade on Wednesday went off on an angry tirade about the attempted rape allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — and even his co-hosts were taken aback.
During a discussion on Kavanaugh’s nomination, Kilmeade complained about how unfair it was that allegedly trying to rape someone in high school could come back to haunt a nominee to the Supreme Court.
“I was at back-to-school night last night for my 10th and 12th grader, and little did I know, I was just trying to see if they had blown any shot at finding success in life in 10th and 12th grade,” he began.
At this point, Kilmeade’s voice started rising as he got more angry.
“Because that’s what I’m getting from this whole process!” he shouted. “When in doubt, go back to high school and college, even if you’re in your fifties!”
At this point, co-host Steve Doocy stepped in to point out that the allegations against Kavanaugh were “serious” and shouldn’t just be dismissed as a high school prank if true.
This did not deter Kilmeade, however.
“For people to say, let’s go back to high school to stop you from moving forward — I’ve heard of your transcript mattering in ninth grade for college, but I didn’t know your ninth and tenth-grade actions could really reflect on what happens in the Supreme Court!” he ranted.

‘Breadth and scale’ of nationwide protests is ‘staggering’: NYU history professor
Protests continued to grow in size in cities and towns from coast-to-coast -- and around the world.
"As a historian of social movements in the U.S., I am hard pressed to think of any time in the past when we have had two straight weeks of large-scale protests in hundreds of places, from suburbs to big cities," NYU history Prof. Tom Sugrue posted on Twitter.
"The breadth and scale of #Floyd protests is staggering," he continued.
"We have had some huge one-day demonstrations, e.g. March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom (1963); antinuclear march in NYC (1982), and Women's March (2017). We have widespread, simultaneous protests, such as in the days following MLK, Jr.'s assassination (1968)," he explained. "But the two together--very unusual."
Incel blew his hand off — and may have been planning for suicide bomber attack on ‘hot’ cheerleaders: report

"Cole Carini was charged in federal court on Friday connection with the plot after he allegedly lied to FBI agents by saying his extensive injuries were the result of a lawnmower accident."
Big turnout for protest in Texas town known as a ‘haven’ for the Ku Klux Klan
Protesters gathered in Vidor, Texas on Saturday for a rally against racism and police violence.
The East Texas town has long had a reputation for racism.
Vidor is a small city of about 11,000 people near the Texas Gulf Coast, not too far from the Louisiana border. Despite the fact that Beaumont, a much bigger city just 10 minutes away, is quite integrated, Vidor is not. There are very few blacks there; it's mostly white. That is in large part because of a history of racism in Vidor, a past that continues to haunt the present," Keith Oppenheim reported for CNN in 2006.
