Abby Huntsman Fails To Bring Up Russian Interference in Interview With Russian Ambassador

According to numerous bipartisan reports that came from several intelligence agencies, it is well accepted that Russia aimed to interfere in the U.S. general election last year. As such, there has been an ongoing investigation by both House and Senate intelligence committees and Special Counsel Robert Mueller amid lots of circumstantial evidence suggesting that the Trump campaign may have been well aware.

So, given all that, the current diplomatic and political relationship between the U.S. and Russia is in something of a critical moment, and the newly appointed U.S. Ambassador to Russia is walking into a complicated situation that requires nuance and vast diplomatic experience. Fortunately, that man is former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, Jr., a very well-regarded statesmen who was previously the Ambassador to China under both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations. And credit to Fox & Friends for the great get in booking the interview for such a newsworthy subject!

But something odd happened — the story of Russia and U.S. diplomatic relations NEVER CAME UP in this interview!! The interview was conducted by Fox & Friends co-host Abby Huntsman, who coincidentally, bears a STRIKING resemblance to both Ambassador Huntsman and his wife.

Oh wait.

So this interview was a light and fun interview between a daughter and her loving parents departing for a long-term trip to Moscow? Oh. Now I see.

As co-host Brian Kilmeade said from the curvy couch after the interview segment aired, “what an awesome family.” And regardless of what you believe politically, he’s right. Good luck to Amb. Huntsman and hope you and your wife can manage a trip back stateside when your very pregnant daughter Abby produces another grandchild.
