Fox & Friends Rips ‘Elitist’ Media Reactions to Trump Signing Bibles in Alabama

By now you may have seen or heard about President Donald Trump signing people’s Bibles in Alabama yesterday while he was down there to survey the tornado damage.

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:

“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.”
