Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt complained that NFL players were ruining her time watching the games because they peacefully protested against police brutality during the National Anthem.
Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade began the segment by whining about the quiet demonstrations: “This whole thing couldn’t be more of a mess. This is going to set up an unbelievable lose-lose situation.”
Earhardt then lectured the peaceful players on protesting peacefully and falsely suggested the players were disrespecting fallen troops:
It’s interesting, though, the people that are fighting because the division in our country, are dividing the country! Football will never be the same. I just want to turn on the TV and watch a game, you know? And eat popcorn and pizza.
Listen. I think, if you have a problem with the country, protest, do whatever you want, do it peacefully. You can take a knee, just don’t do it during the national anthem. Too many people have died for this country.
