“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.”

Trump holds mass rally with Indian Prime Minister that was more like a campaign event than official one
US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday declared themselves united in a relentless fight against "terrorism," vowing a close, personal alliance in front of tens of thousands of Indian-Americans.
The two leaders, like-minded nationalists fond of fiery rallies and skeptical of traditional media, heaped praise on each other in an unusual joint appearance inside a football stadium in Houston.
To the bhangra beats of four drummers in saffron turbans, Trump in his dark suit and Modi in a yellow kurta and vest made a grand entrance with arms clenched together to ecstatic cheers from a crowd estimated by organizers at 50,000.
Here’s how the law governing whistleblowers applies to the Trump Ukraine complaint
This week it was revealed that President Donald Trump did something so concerning that an intelligence staffer felt the need to report the incident and file for whistleblower protections.
Trump asked Ukraine to look into scandals about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter. For nearly a year, Trump's former attorney Rudy Giuliani was admittedly working to persuade officials in Ukraine to find "dirt" on the Bidens that they could use in the election. While the accusations against the younger Biden have been disproven, it's suspected, but not confirmed, that this was the incident detailed in the complaint.
Retiring Republican lawmaker blames Trump’s ‘petty, childish bullsh*t’ for massive GOP exodus
In an examination of the record-breaking number of Republican lawmakers who have decided to quit or retire despite holding a seat in solidly conservative congressional districts, one lawmaker admitted that he grew weary of having to deal with Donald Trump's daily Twitter habit and other shenanigans -- so he is calling it quits.
As the Washington Post reports, "Since Trump’s inauguration, a Washington Post analysis shows that nearly 40 percent of the 241 Republicans who were in office in January 2017 are gone or leaving because of election losses, retirements including former House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis)."
