Minutes after Joe Biden announced his candidacy for the 2020 presidential nomination, Fox & Friends glumly assessed that the Democratic frontrunner’s strategy “might actually be a winning message.”
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt contrasted Biden’s stinging announcement video—a fierce attack on Fox & Friends fan President Trump and his shameful comments after the deadly Charlotteville neo-Nazi protests—with the blowback Sen. Bernie Sanders received Wednesday night at the She the People presidential forum in Houston. When the Vermont senator was asked at the event about the rise of white nationalism in America, he defaulted to his usual talking points about immigration reform and mentioned his attendance at the March on Washington with Dr. Martin Luther King. The audience booed him and someone yelled “we know!”
“There were moans and groans because they say he was dodging the question,” Earhardt said Thursday morning.
