The hosts of “Fox & Friends” are upset at country music stars Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley who mocked President Donald Trump during the 51st Annual Country Music Awards (CMA) program (video below).
Underwood and Paisley joked about Clinton and Sanders, but it was their parody song “Before He Tweets” that outraged co-host Steve Doocy:
Remember in the olden days when football wasn’t political and so many things weren’t political? Now, as it turns out, the CMAs have gotten very political.
Co-host Brian Kilmeade was less whiney:
I like the fact that they opened up with a few hits on Hillary Clinton — which Seth Meyers and all these other guys don’t do — and I thought they balanced it out.
Doocy complained again that the CMAs were not supposed to “get political.”
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt also whined about the jokes:
Where’s Dolly [Parton], where’s Garth Brooks? They don’t get political. Listen, Charlie Daniels — Charlie Daniels talked about how he likes the old country better than the new country. Really? It’s hitting country music now? Isn’t country music supposed to be conservative?
“I’m just going to go back to rap,” Kilmeade lamented.
