Fox & Friends Host Ainsley Earhardt Defends Trump’s July 4 Rally: What Would People Say if ‘Obama Brought in Tanks?’

Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt reacted to critics of President Donald Trump‘s militarized upcoming Fourth of July address by wondering what would’ve happened if former president Barack Obama did anything like this in his time.

Fox & Friends used several portions of their Wednesday show to hit back on media critics who’ve called it “unAmerican,” “tacky” and “partisan” of Trump to turn Independence Day into a vanity project by having military equipment at his National Mall speech. As the curvy couch groaned at the comments from detractors, Earhardt noted that Trump has been obsessed with holding an event like this ever since he saw what Paris is like when he was in France for Bastille Day.

“Never expected for people to say we shouldn’t have a parade like this,” Earhardt said. “What would they say if President Obama had done this, had brought in tanks?”

“We’re gonna see what happens,” Griff Jenkins said, declining to answer Earhardt’s question directly.
