“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade reacted angrily to reports that President Donald Trump told the Iranian government that he wanted to hold diplomatic talks shortly before calling off a previously authorized strike against Iranian military targets.
While discussing a Reuters report about the president telling Iran that he “he was against any war with Iran and wanted to talk to Tehran about various issues,” Kilmeade fumed that diplomacy was on the table at all.
“Why would we talk to them?” he asked incredulously. “They’re blowing up tankers of our allies, then they blow up our drone, and then we’ll talk to them? It makes us look so weak!”
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt defended the president by pointing out that he’d hit Iran with stinging sanctions — but Kilmeade countered that Iran had conducted “seven weeks” worth of “attacks on us and our allies.”
Kilmeade also knocked the president for saying that Iran shot down an American drone by “mistake,” which the Fox host described as “giving them an out.”

Disney heiress who went undercover to Disneyland ‘livid’ at conditions and pay
Heiress Abigail Disney went to one of her family's resorts to see conditions for workers herself and was disgusted by what she saw.
In comments to Yahoo News podcast "Through Her Eyes," Disney described how she went to Disneyland in California undercover and found that workers at the resort were treated poorly—and underpaid.
"Every single one of these people I talked to were saying, 'I don't know how I can maintain this face of joy and warmth when I have to go home and forage for food in other people's garbage,'" said Disney.
Ex-Peru president wanted for corruption arrested in the US
Former Peruvian president Alejandro Toledo was arrested in the United States Tuesday to face extradition to his home country on corruption charges, authorities in the South American nation said.
The 73-year-old is suspected of involvement in the sprawling Odebrecht scandal in which the construction giant paid hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes throughout the continent to secure huge public works contracts.
The Peruvian attorney general's office announced on Twitter that Toledo "was arrested this morning for extradition, in the United States."
Toledo has been formally charged with receiving a $20 million payment from Odebrecht to grant it the tender to build the Interoceanic Highway that links Peru with Brazil.
Comic-Con mines past for future hits on 50th edition
A smorgasbord of sequels, prequels and reunions from "Terminator" to "Game of Thrones" awaits thousands of misty-eyed comic book geeks and sci-fi nerds descending on San Diego this week for the world's largest celebration of pop culture fandom.
