Fox & Friends Hosts Mock London Protestors: ‘No One Has a Job’

Fox & Friends spoke to reporter Kevin Corke, live from London, about the protests currently meeting President Donald Trump‘s visit. And during the segment, the Fox News morning hosts mocked protestors of the U.S. leader.

As Jackson noted the large crowds assembled in opposition to Trump, Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade snarked, “Ok good, I guess everyone is off today.”

“No one has a job,” Ainsley Earhardt added.

The morning show then interviewed British Fox News host Steve Hilton, and Earhardt was baffled by why people in a foreign country would protest the American president.

“What’s interesting to us as Americans when we look at the video and all the protesters out there protesting our president — we might not like the policies of Theresa May, but if she came to our country, no one would be out there protesting,” Earhardt said. “Why do they care so much about what our country is doing? Why do they have such a strong opinion against our president?”

Hilton declared that the protests were about “virtue signaling” and not policy.

“If they really cared about the substance of what president Trump is doing, they would be happy,” he said.

The Brit went on to express confusion that Londoners don’t love Trump for what he’s doing for the U.S. economy.

Kilmeade then asked Hilton if he was ashamed of his country for the protests of Trump, citing another bigoted leader he claimed didn’t face protests in London.

“Are you embarrassed, a little, for your country that does not protest when dictators from Turkey show up, who jail people in the press for writing bad stories, and jail their political opponents?” Kilmeade asked.

“Erdogan shows up, no one used any oak tags, and spray paint of put on any anti-Erdogan shirts,” he added.

Erdogan’s latest visit to the U.K., in May, sparked protests in London and clashes with police. The friendly summit between the two leaders was also condemned in the U.K. press.

“Yes, it is absolutely a disgrace,” Hilton said.
