Fox & Friends cohost Steve Doocy has coddled his reputation as one of the nicest guys you’d meet. He’s Mr. America Next Door. He’s the dad everyone wants. He’s the husband who helps his wife make dinner and collaborated with her on a cookbook. He frequently refers to his children, often throwing in anecdotes on their wacky escapades together.
Who could be more wholesome?
Doocy has also cultivated his Kansas roots as proof of his inherent conservatism.
When he was accused of sexism by co-host Gretchen Carlson, it seemed out of character.
How you have to wonder. He seems to have done a complete 180 on President Trump. Isn’t that convenient since Fox has veered to the Left?
I have not watched the network since their November 3rd premature and reckless call of Arizona for Biden. I did hear about the recent verbal scuffle between Doocey and co-host Brian Kilmeade.
Kilmeade had the day before voiced his opinion that the House should not impeach Trump, especially with just a week of his term to go. He said, “If Mitch McConnell is such a great politician does he understand that, as Brit Hume has said and Jonathan Swan has reported, there’s no sign the president’s lost his base? So if you actually want to build on the president’s base and bring the party in a subtle or dramatic new direction, why do it without them with only days left? It makes no sense!”
Then: Steve Doocy: “The Congress was under attack last week. It was looted. There was a riot.”
Brian Kilmeade: “So was Portland every day, and nobody cared on the left!”
Steve: “Brian … Brian … I don’t think what they were doing in Portland was trying to overthrow the democracy.”
Later, Doocy added to it.
“Let’s put the shoe on the other foot,” he noted. “If a Democrat president did what happened last week, would the Republicans in the House and Senate vote to impeach him if they could? The answer is yes.”
Kilmeade, meanwhile, loudly complained that impeachment was unnecessary since Trump only had a week left in office, arguing that it made “no sense” since he was “leaving anyway.”
“Members of Congress ultimately want accountability,” Doocy retorted.
This is exactly why Fox is hemorrhaging viewers. Snap it off and don’t go back. It will only infuriate you.
