The hosts of Fox & Friends bashed some of the media reactions this morning, including a piece on Elle titled “Trump Is Autographing Bibles Now So That’s a Wrap on Humanity, Right?” and this from ABC News’ Matthew Dowd:
I don’t know who it is a worse commentary on: Trump actually signing Bibles in Alabama, or the people asking him to sign a Bible. Lordy Moses.

“The people there actually wanted him to do it,” Ed Henry said. “If a citizen asks you, and you’re trying to be nice, what is the president going to do to these people who have just been through this horrific tragedy and lost family members? ‘I’m not going to sign your Bible’?”
Emily Compagno said it shows “elitism coming out of the left where it’s mocking people of faith” and people in a devastated community.
Pete Hegseth said his new life goal is that “President Trump signs a Bible that I own.” He asked what’s wrong with Trump signing them in the first place, while Compagno said “those on the left shouldn’t be decrying how others view their bibles.”
