Web Slams ‘Groveling’ Brian Kilmeade for Permitting Trump to Spew ‘Lie After Lie’

Americans who saw Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade interview with President Donald Trump are outraged by the co-host of Fox & Friends’s co-host and “allowing” the president to “lie about lie about lie” spit out.

Americans have grown used to seeing President Trump lie repeatedly, and while they are still outraged by those lies on a daily basis, they expect press officials to make final corrections to the recording in real time if he does so.

Kilmeade not only let Trump spit out falsehoods with devotion in his Fox News interview that aired Sunday morning, Kilmeade actually turned the lies himself.

The outrage is so palpable that “Kilmeade” is trending on social media. It’s rare for journalists to cause more trouble than the president, but Kilmeade’s refusal to tell the public the truth seemed like a turning point even for some Republicans.

For example, in this clip, Kilmeade asks that the military budget was cut by 25% when Trump was sworn in. Much of these cuts were enforced through confiscation by Republicans, a fact Kilmeade did not reveal to viewers. Worse still, he used Trump’s repeated lie and falsely said that the military was “out of bullets” as the basis for his question. This dangerous lie has been refuted countless times, including today by retired Lieutenant General Russell L. Honore (see below in a tweet).

During an interview with Trump recorded at the Army-Navy soccer game, @kilmeade embarrassingly repeated a lie Trump has often told that the military “ran out of bullets” when he took office.

Kilmeade also let Trump get away with this lie: “The Supreme Court just said we have no position.”

That’s wrong in this case, filed by the Texas Attorney General and backed by 17 other states and 126 GOP members in Congress, the Supreme Court voted 7-2 to decide they don’t stand – but said unanimously whether they would have accepted the case they would have voted against.

Kilmeade ignored this most important fact and let Trump’s dangerous lies go on, lies that are now leading to violence on America’s streets.

So many react:

Hey @kilmeade, during your interview with Donald Trump this weekend, Trump said he won, Joe Biden lost, and Biden was an “illegitimate president”. And you just stood there. You didn’t challenge him. Shame on you Brian. Do you agree with Trump’s dangerous lies? https://t.co/tJaA9Viu02

Why doesn’t @kilmeade just drop on his knees in church service? https://t.co/EVxhwRvKfb

We ran out of ammunition, real story after Jan 20, 2021, Smile, talking about issues the billions pulled from the DOD budget for building military housing for building a wall. More information after 20 Jam 2021 pic.twitter.com/FWOexSekBZ

I like the way the @kilmeade doesn’t even pretend to have a bit of journalistic integrity anymore, only parrots lie after lies from Trump… .. https://t.co/mzsBNi0b3j

My favorite part of the no-ammunition lie is that it seems to be based on the premise that the president is personally responsible for ordering ammunition and that Obama forgot about it.

It’s a ridiculously stupid thing to lie about.

Look at it all. The entire thread of the videos. If this were any other person, it would be incredible. But it is not. It’s the classic @realDonaldTrump, the worst narcissistic psychopath the country’s political life has ever seen, but whom we got to know all too well. https://t.co/8tqnyUsIwU

What a hack @kilmeade is to allow lie for lie for lie. @realDonaldTrump is right about one thing, this was NOT a close choice. Biden won by a landslide. @FoxNews should be taken out of thin air to mislead the public.

I’m waiting for him to drop to Trump’s knee and hug Trump’s body like Trump is hugging the flag

The funny thing is that Trump hates the flag as much as Kilmeade Trump … who has ruined his already shaky reputation #MAGAMorons pic.twitter.com/pXkgH3rAqY

Just like the other MAGA cult members, @kilmeade doesn’t dare to question the god-king Trump, otherwise he will suffer the consequences of a mean tweet. That’s what they’re afraid of. 🙄😒 https://t.co/XxhUOMWPGM

Way to push @kilmeade back, are you really a dummy or are you just playing one on TV for Trump? https://t.co/c8gUSUDRgr

@ Kilmeade. Standing is no small matter. 80 million Biden votes are no small matter. No real evidence of fraud is no small matter. Over 250,000 Americans who have died of COVID are no mean feat @realDonaldTrump #Trump #FoxNews #FoxAndFriends #ByeDon #ByeByeTrump #coronavirus https://t.co/q5F55mR7pY

All that sad excuse for a trip @kilmeade had to do was to go to @snopes on this one. #Trump has been repeating this absurd lie for years, based on information from a defunct #fakenews website that was first published in 2014. Surprise. #Kilmeadehttps: //t.co/VNFZA0SMsb

When do the so-called journalists @FoxNews stop promoting riot – legal votes are not just votes for trump and legal position is the foundation for submitting a case #SeditiousGOP #CryBabyTump #DiaperDonald
