The hosts of fox and friends braced for the possible arrest of former President Donald Trump on Sunday by grumbling about his lawsuits.
“It’s a really dark time,” co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy announced, referencing an interview with former federal prosecutor Francey Hakes. “And so she says, it’s a dangerous time in America.”
“And I think a lot of Americans look at that saying, there’s no equal justice,” the host added. “Donald Trump has been persecuted politically ever since he, you know, won the election in 2016. And I think a lot of people feel the same way. does that mean to me?”
Co-host Joey Jones falsely told his audience that Trump had only committed a crime if his silent money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels could be linked to the 2016 presidential campaign. In fact, Trump could do facing a misdemeanor for keeping fraudulent business records even though prosecutors fail to link the payments to the campaign.
Co-host Will Cain argued that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg “sacrificed” black lives so he could prosecute Trump.
“How many black lives have you sacrificed in a higher crime city with increased murder rates to devote a limited number of resources to prioritizing pursuing a weak case against Donald Trump?” Cain asked. “How many black lives was this political stunt worth?”
