Trump's Favorite Show Openly Condemns His Rhetoric
Replaying a clip of the commander in chief’s interview from the previous day with the network’s Laura Ingraham, Trump’s infamous “enemy of the people” line was once again heard as he defended his use of the phrase, which is widely seen as dangerous to the press.
In a candid moment, Brian Kilmeade then said he wanted Trump to drop the remark altogether.
“I really wish he would lose that term,” Kilmeade said. “It doesn’t help anybody. It doesn’t push back on the media that he wants to push back on.”
“Some of the things they say and the way they stack their shows — the president could look as though they are targeting him and he’s got a case, but that broad statement does a lot of damage,” he said.
Steve Doocy agreed with Kilmeade's sentiment, suggesting that while he understood the president's frustration, his reflexes don't do him any favors.
