Fox News Host Snaps At Trump Over January 6th

During a segment on Fox & Friends, co-host Brian Kilmeade attempted to downplay the seriousness of the charges against former President Donald Trump, suggesting that they were merely a result of him “protesting the election.” Kilmeade referenced commentary from Ari Fleischer to support his argument. However, his co-host, Steve Doocy, was quick to rebut this notion and provided a comprehensive response, much to Kilmeade’s apparent dismay.



Doocy emphasized that the charges against Trump seemed to go beyond simple protests over the election results. According to Doocy, there appears to be evidence indicating that Trump employed various tactics to retain power after his defeat in the 2020 election. These tactics allegedly included attempting to assemble so-called “fake electors” from swing states he had lost, pressuring state officials to impede or delay Joe Biden’s victory, and notably, trying to persuade the vice president not to certify the election results on January 6th, the infamous day of the Capitol attack.

Kilmeade interjected, expressing his awareness of the information shared by Doocy. However, Doocy remained steadfast, clarifying that the details of the evidence were yet to be fully disclosed, but that the charges encompassed three federal statutes based on information from a source at ABC.

STEVE DOOCY: Yeah, absolutely. And it’s more… It sounds like from what we’ve seen and what lawyers have said to the press behind the scenes and stuff like that, it sounds like it’s more than just protesting that he lost the election.

It sounds like they’ve assembled evidence about tactics that the former president used to try to hold on to power after he lost in 2020, assembling slates of so-called fake electors from swing states that the president had at that point lost, pressured state officials to block or delay Joe Biden’s win. And, of course, famously on January 6th, tried to persuade the vice president not to certify the election results in the Electoral College. That’s just some of the stuff that could be involved. Remember…


STEVE DOOCY: All we know for sure is, according to this source at ABC, there are three federal statutes. We don’t know exactly the evidence. We just know that that is the case that has been levied against him in the past.

BRIAN KILMEADE: And Jack Smith loves to overcharge and fail spectacularly like he did with Edwards…

STEVE DOOCY: Well, let’s see…

BRIAN KILMEADE: And Senator Menendez…

The exchange between the two co-hosts became tense, with Kilmeade attempting to discredit Special Counsel Jack Smith, implying that he has a history of overcharging and failing in previous cases. Despite the pushback, Doocy maintained that the evidence and charges against Trump were significant and warranted attention.
