Fox & Friends Slam ‘Political’ Oscars: Kimmel is ‘Chuck Schumer With a Sense of Humor’

Fox & Friends got the chance to harp on one of their favorite topics Monday morning: Hollywood hating conservatives.

The layup segment was provided courtesy of last night’s Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, which as usual featured plenty of political statements and jokes at the expense of President Donald Trump and his administration.

After pointing out that Kimmel had promised the show would focus on positivity, the Fox & Friends hosts played a highlight reel of the most political moments of the night.

“So much for positivity,” Fox News host Brian Kilmeade lamented. “Jimmy Kimmel is basically Chuck Schumer with a sense of humor. That’s basically who he was.”

“You know it’s going to be political: if you are a Democrat you love it, Republican you probably don’t watch,” Ainsley Earhardt remarked.

“A lot of people tune in because this is supposed to be one of the funniest shows of the year, and that hasn’t happened for a long time,” Steve Doocy said.

Kilmeade harped on the gender pay gap in Hollywood, before telling the industry to “clean up your own house when it comes to gender pay and all these other behaviors in the office before you start condemning other people.”

“You go to the movies to escape from reality,” Doocy lamented.
