Fox & Friends Host Brian Kilmeade On NFL Protests: Trump Is Making Things Worse (But Obama Started It)

Uproxx reports:

“Yesterday, I thought the president — overall his remarks Friday and his tweets Saturday — made everything worse,” noted Fox News personality Brian Kilmeade. As damning as Kilmeade’s condemnation here may seem, however, the Fox & Friends co-host tagged it onto a two-minute explanation for why the explosive NFL anthem protests were actually President Obama’s fault. “People should get [it] clear: This did not start with President Trump. This started when President Obama was president. When Colin Kaepernick noticed taking a knee and sitting down during the national anthem. He was asked about it. Others joined him on it. It was extremely controversial.”

Kilmeade recently made national headlines after Jimmy Kimmel called him a “phony little creep.”

Earlier this month Kilmeade compared Confederate monuments to 9/11 memorials.

      They really need to take off their clothes….

      • FAEN

        Good morning you slut 😉

      • Silver Badger

        This is a good idea. Trump and the average republican definitely need to keep their clothes on.

      • Reality.Bites

        No, they need to take off each other’s clothes, while kissing.

        • Silver Badger

          Not as long as our president is married to Michelle.

          • Todd20036

            She can watch.

          • Silver Badger

            Not even. We can’t have respect for our marriages is we don’t respect Michelle’s.

          • Tawreos

            Even beyond the respecting marriages aspect, I would not want to piss off Michelle. I get the feeling she would whip all of our asses with barely a hair out of place.

          • JCF


          • JCF

            …and assuming their marriage is, by mutual agreement, NOT open. [Which, w/ the “forsaking all others” clause in standard legal vows, I assume—unless I hear otherwise.]

    • Millionaires have no right to speech. They should just shut up. Unless they are white and that speech is dark money. /s

  • Todd20036

    Kirkpatrick didn’t kneel because of Obama, he kneeled because of corrupt, racist police.
    And guess what, Obama didn’t demand that police become more racist nor more corrupt.
    Oh there I go again with logic and facts. Silly me.

  • Gigi

    ‘Kilmeade recently made national headlines after Jimmy Kimmel called him a “phony little creep.”’

    Kilmeade’s reply: ‘Um…I’m 6’2″ Jimmy. So not little!’ 🤦🏼‍♂️

    • Silver Badger

      Makes no difference how tall Kilmeade is. He is still a mean, tiny, little person.

      • Gigi

        Which is the point of the criticism. Are we really surprised it went over his head?

        • Silver Badger

          Of course not.

      • Uncle Mark

        I don’t know so much about his being mean. I imagine if he became a member of the “Hollywood elite” that he’s desperately jealous of, his views would change direction faster than a windsock. That phony little creep is just one of those weasels, who will say anything he can to get/keep his job.

        • Silver Badger

          Mean can also mean poor or poor in spirit. As in a mean hovel.

    • FAEN

      Oh for fuck sake! Is he really that dense 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

    • Uncle Mark

      Being so tall just makes his dick look that much more tiny

    • Superman

      No way Brian Kilmeade is a six footer. Sorry. He’s a little guy.

  • kaydenpat

    President Obama’s reaction to Kaepernick’s protest was very measured because unlike Trump, President Obama is a decent human being.

    • Uncle Mark

      Our. Nazi Fake-President is a mentally & emotionally-stunted childhood bully. He used an old tactic at the Alabama rally that childhood bullies employ…find an easy, unpopular/controversial target to beat-up on to win approval from the other kids on the playground. He does this all the time whenever he picks on an individual or minority group.

      A real leader will help shape the direction of the majority, but this sad, little man-baby is always on the desperate and pathetic prowl to win support by picking on the “outliers.” This time, President Man-Baby has bitten off more than he can chew…and he’s too proud to back down, so he can just choke on it.

      • Gregory Phillips

        well said

  • bambinoitaliano

    It’s worth reposting Jimmy Kimmel take on Brian Kilmeade during his monologue on last week show.

    “Brian Kilmeade, whenever I see him, kisses my ass like a little boy meeting Batman.”

    “Oh, he’s such a fan. He’s been to the show; he follows me on Twitter; he asked me to write a blurb for his book – which I did,” Kimmel said on air. “He calls my agent looking for projects. He’s dying to be a member of the Hollywood Elite. The only reason he’s not part of the Hollywood Elite is because nobody will hire him to be one.”

    “Brian – you phony little creep,” Kimmel continued. “That will be my blurb for your next book: Brian Kilmeade is a phony little creep,” joking, “I will pound you when I see you!”.

  • Because I have right wing relatives, I can translate:

    “This wasn’t a problem before Obama. Obama brought out the racists and now we all have to talk about racism. We can’t pretend like it doesn’t exist like we could before and we don’t like that. So it’s all Obama’s fault.”

    • kaydenpat

      So pretty much senseless chatter, then? Rightwing “logic” has the luxury of not having to concern itself with facts.

    • FAEN

      Also “the South will rise again.”

      • grindstone

        What I tell eedjits that try this line. Look at Charlotte, look at Atlanta. Look at Raleigh, the RTP area, Tampa, Miami, and Orlando…..the south did rise again, y’all just failed to rise with it, and it passed your slack-jawed asses by.

    • Ninja0980

      Yup, Obama dared to tell the truth about how it is for so many in this country therefore he caused the problems we are facing now.
      Would be funny if not for the fact so many believe it.

    • grindstone

      We have the same relatives.

  • Uncle Mark

    I’m sure Kilmeade wants to talk about ANYTHING ELSE, besides the “healthcare” bill, after getting his ass handed to him by Kimmel calling him a “phony little creep” and pointing out what a two-faced, little weasel he is…”desperately desiring to become one of the ‘Hollywood elite,’ except no one wants to hire him.” I wondered if Kilmeade thought about threatening a lawsuit after Kimmel threatened to “pound him,” but probably was advised that such publicity would only backfire on the phony little creep.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Lol love this ” Kilmeade kisses my ass like a little boy meeting Batman.”


  • Stev84

    That show is just completely ridiculous

    • FAEN

      Honey it passed ridiculous a LONG time ago IMO.

  • Charles Nelson

    Yep…everything is Obama’s fault…it’s his fault that he is interracial. Not pure White like all President’s should be.

  • bambinoitaliano

    The slavery in America never goes away. It’s just get molded in a different form. The racists the like of the shit gibbon still want to control the black folks regardless if they are famous and wealthy or not. Had it been a white athlete, it would barely be a bleep on the radar. Only the white nationalists would twist a protest of social injustice into a question of patriotism. The same argument the scamvengelist using God as their last line of defense.

    • Gustav2

      It is a criticism of white control of the policing and justice systems. Without that control, white people are nothing special.

    I am continually amazed that the amount is stupid in one place during one of their broadcasts doesn’t form a kind of singularity that sucks in all intelligence through the televis—

    Oh wait.

  • Joe in PA

    Ok, so now we’ve got that out of our system…CAN WE TALK ABOUT BEING ON THE BRINK OF NUCLEAR WAR NOW?

  • TrueWords
  • paganguy

    One could say that “Trump Is Making Things Worse (But Obama Started It)” kind of sums up the whole Trump presidency in a nutshell. All the good things Obama started or fostered are now being trashed by Trump and his cohorts.

    Uh-oh .. Doddering Pussygrabber just threw his remote at the TV – how dare his Fox besties (& closest advisors) say ANYTHING bad EVER

  • Mike__in_Houston

    We currently have (1) the possibility of nuclear war with North Korea, (2) Puerto Rico, a United States territory, rapidly running out of supplies, and (3) the Russia investigation, but The Screaming Cheeto has managed to have this thing with the NFL and NASCAR controlling the narrative. It is not smart enough to have pulled this off on its own, so it must have some quasi-competent advisors telling it how to proceeed.

  • Matt

    You literally have to be brain dead to stomach watching this show and its proudly ignorant hosts. I know people who watch every day and it’s pretty much true – zero thought, zero decency, zero common sense from any of them.

    • Mike__in_Houston

      +1000 just for “proudly ignorant.”

  • Christ. What an asshole. He is so upset that all of those uppity black folk won’t shut up and learn their place.

  • Lakeview Bob

    Of course Obama started it. He had the audacity to be a black man.

    Fucking stupid republicans.

  • Kevin Perez

    “Not Steve Doocy” is not very smart. Neither is Steve Doocy..or the blond skirt in the middle.

  • You have to know a social movement is serious is when professional jocks (often more motivated by money than anything else) take part in coordinated protests against injustice.
    Kaepernick should be recognized as the first.

  • The_Wretched

    In the last week or so, Donny the Unfit’s approval number went up a little. It was due to uneducated white men alone. When even fox news is telling you to stop it, maybe that’s a hint? OTOH, Donny has a hard time screwing up other things if he’s distracted with an irrelevant detail (compared vs presidential business).

    Is Donny bored of being president? He could just resign.

  • M Jackson

    I do remember all the times Obama encouraged law enforcement to shoot up potential criminals and lean harder on the dark ones.

  • geoffalnutt

    Obama shot Lincoln.

    • JWC

      Oh Megtn that s just Nausty Jusy so Nausty Bitch

  • -M-

    I think it was the unchecked crimes and incompetence of some police that started it.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Hey now, you’re using facts where conservatives are concerned, you know that doesn’t work.

  • JWC

    Its pretty bad when his minions can only blame the idiotic crass of Trump by making an inane reference to Obama . The all hated bug a boo Obama He caused it all

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    That’s right, blame a protest against racist cops shooting unarmed black men on the black president. Fake Jesus, these people can’t over Obama; they’re literally the embodiment of the adage “once you go black….” How else to explain it?
