The Late Show Opens With Montage of Fox News Hosts Talking Emails… and Then NOT Talking Them
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night opened with a shot at Fox News hosts over how they reacted to the Hillary Clinton email scandal, and how they are reacting to Ivanka Trump‘s.
Democrats pounced on the news that Ivanka Trump used a personal email account for some messages regarding official government business, quickly referring back to when Hillary Clinton sent classified national security information using an unsecured server and personal email account while Secretary of State. President Donald Trump made a huge issue of it during his campaign, and the chants of “Lock Her Up” have followed at MAGA rallies ever since.
The premise of the clip, therefore, is that it’s hypocritical of the administration and their stenographers at Fox News to not be similarly outraged over Ivanka’s transgression.
The montage features Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Jeanine Pirro in tirades over Hillary, then cuts to 2018 and shows those three, as well as the Fox and Friends hosts, in moments of silence, with the Ivanka headlines added to the shot.
It’s funny. Watch above, courtesy of CBS.
