“Fox & Friends” gave their strange distorted analysis to Democrat Conor Lamb’s apparent upset victory over Republican Rick Saccone in the mostly conservative Pennsylvania 18th Congressional District, which Trump won by 20 points in 2016.
Co-host Brian Kilmeade stated: “This looked like a blowout for a while. Conor Lamb was in the driver’s seat, just a matter of blowing up the balloons — and then what happened?”
What happened was painfully obvious to anyone who watched the election night results. The first wave of votes for Lamb came from the only Democratic part of the 18th Congressional District, Alleghany County, which includes Pittsburgh.
After showing his stunning ignorance in Pennsylvania politics, Kilmeade continued:
Is it true that the Democrats have momentum? Yes, Is it true that all these special elections, even the ones they lost, is their turnout up? Yes. Is it also true in the past when the minority party comes up after losing the presidency and the House and the Senate? That is tradition.
However, the minority party does not usually win in districts where the president won by 20 points.
Kilmeade claimed Saccone did not show enough support for Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs, which both candidates backed.
Kilmeade then offered his advice for Democrats whom he clearly opposes:
The Democrats have reason to be happy? Yeah. But I’m very curious to see how many pro-life, pro-tax cut, pro-gun, anti-Nancy Pelosi candidates will be nominated for November, because Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have a different image where the party is going and they’re looked at as leaders. If they are saying, “Wow, we are on a roll, yeah.” Name another candidate like Conor Lamb.
Co-host Steve Doocy offered his equally bizarre analysis:
What’s interesting about this particular thing that is too close to call is they both ran as Republicans.
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt echoed Donald Trump Jr., who campaigned for Saccone:
If he does win and does make it to Washington, of course, he is going to vote with the Democrats just like Joe Manchin did. We had Donald Trump Jr. on yesterday, he was saying no Democrat is ever going to go against the party.
They are not going to go against Nancy Pelosi, they are not going to go against Chuck Schumer. Those are the two most liberal of all those serving in Washington of the Democratic Party.
