The hosts of "Fox & Friends," who normally delight whenever President Donald Trump lobs personal insults at his political foes, were deeply offended on Thursday that Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) would refer to Trump as a "grifter."
Reacting to Hirono grilling Attorney General Bill Barr on Wednesday, co-host Brian Kilmeade complained that the Democratic senator didn't give either Barr or Trump the proper respect that they're owed.
"Sen. Hirono, so inappropriate!" Kilmeade fumed. "I don't care if anything happens in the future with future presidents or senators, for her to come out there and for her first words to be, 'You and this grifter president,' goes out and says the most disparaging things. Do they know people are watching around the world? Is that what the people of Hawaii want?"
Kilmeade then complained that Hirono's insults to Barr and Trump took away time she could have used to ask questions.
"Don't sit there for five minutes and give a speech!" he said. "So insulting!"
