Yesterday Sandra Lee was on Fox & Friends promoting herself. She is selling some kind of dinner kit. Preceding her segment the hosts interviewed Speaker Paul Ryan. One of them invited him to join them in the cooking demonstration Lee was going to prepare next.
I didn’t see him in the segment and wondered about why. New York Post’s Page Six explains.
Sandra Lee refused to let House Speaker Paul Ryan join her cooking segment on Fox News and told him, “I need you to go away.”
The celebrity chef and longtime girlfriend of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, was not happy after learning her segment on Tuesday’s “Fox & Friends” would directly follow an interview with Ryan, and banished the Republican leader from her TV kitchen.
A source told Page Six, “Paul Ryan was on the segment before Sandra, and the hosts asked him to hang around for Sandra’s cooking feature to try the food. But in the break before her demo, she said to Ryan and some others there, ‘I need you to go away so I can collect my thoughts, prepare, and get ready for the segment.’”
The source continued, “It wasn’t a very friendly ‘Fox & Friends.’ Sandra wasn’t even comfortable with having Paul Ryan on the same stage as her during the commercial break, never mind on air. It was very frosty. She simply does not believe in anything Ryan believes in.”
The source added that Ryan remained off-camera while Lee did her “Cooking With Friends” segment with show hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade. She prepared a Mother’s Day menu of coffee cake, chocolate cupcakes and chocolate-covered bacon. Lee also discussed a Manhattan Magazine cover story in which she champions small businesses.
Another source tells us, “Steve [Doocy] brought Ryan over to the kitchen to try the chocolate-covered bacon, and Sandra looked annoyed. She made a dismissive remark and looked away.”
Cuomo has had his share of clashes with Ryan. In March, Cuomo said congressional Republicans have “declared war on New York” with their ObamaCare repeal, which will cost the state $6.9 billion if passed. He also tore into Ryan’s “rabid conservative orthodoxy.”
Lee, a breast cancer survivor, traditionally steers clear of Cuomo’s political battles. She declined to comment on Tuesday night.
Talk about petty and puerile. These liberals can’t dig their graves fast enough. Americans are increasingly turning away from people like her.
