“Fox & Friends” found themselves on unsure footing Thursday morning as they reported on a string of bombs that are turning up at the homes and officers of critics of President Donald Trump.
Co-host Brian Kilmeade made the connection between the suspicious packages and their targets, including former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, philanthropist George Soros, actor Robert DeNiro and CNN’s headquarters in New York City.
“If you are looking to line up the critics of the president, the ones that were lined up yesterday certainly are in that lineup with (former CIA director John) Brennan and (former attorney general Eric) Holder and President Obama and Hillary Clinton,” Kilmeade said. “Then you think, downtown, the man who started the Tribeca Film Festival is Robert DeNiro, there is no one who has been more direct or more vile in his language than Robert DeNiro.”
That explicit connection worried co-host Ainsley Earhardt, who quickly moved to dismiss the links.
“That’s all speculation, we don’t know,” Earhartdt said. “We don’t know who is being targeted here or even if it’s related to those suspicious packages that have been sent out to the lawmakers.”
