Fox Host Breaks From Usual Trump Praise: ‘Makes Absolutely No Sense’ To Hit McCain

March 21, 2019 8:26 a.m.

President Trump didn’t get his usual cup of steaming hot affirmation from “Fox and Friends” Thursday morning.

While discussing Trump’s visit to Ohio Wednesday evening, co-host Brian Kilmeade praised the President for the economy before suggesting that he “swamped” his own message with his attacks on the late-Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and the husband of one of his most loyal aides, George Conway.

“The problem is he swamped his own message by going after George Conway and in that speech, inexplicably, segue way to going after John McCain,” Kilmeade said. “It makes absolutely no sense.”

Trump has gone after both Conway and McCain multiple times in the past two days, most notably slamming McCain — who passed away from brain cancer nearly seven months ago — because he didn’t get a “thank you” for his funeral.
