'Fox and Friends' Host 'Stunned' That New Fox News Poll Shows 50% Support Impeaching and Removing Donald Trump

Fox News

Since announcing a formal impeachment inquiry in September and holding impeachment hearings in the House Intelligence and Judicial Committees, support for impeaching and removing President Donald Trump from office is now greater than opposition.

Even a recent Fox News poll indicated that 50% of the country wants Trump removed from office.

But the hosts of Fox and Friends—one of the President's favorite shows on the network—could hardly believe the results of their own network's poll, apparently believing their own anti-impeachment spin. Brian Kilmeade was downright "stunned" by the finding.

Watch below.

Kilmeade said:

"It says 50 percent of the country want the President impeached. I was stunned to see that was the number, because I thought that things were trending away, although the President's approval rating did tick up in the same poll, so it's almost like a split personality."

The President must have been equally stunned. He lashed out at Fox News' polling again this weekend.

Though Republicans and hesitant Democrats warned for years that impeaching the President would be politically damning for the Democratic party, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) asserted in September that it was her constitutional mandate to open an impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump.

The President withholding congressionally approved military aid from Ukraine in exchange for its president announcing politically beneficial investigations for Trump was the last straw for Pelosi—and many other Americans.

Around half the country continues to support impeachment as facts continue to exhibit corruption in the White House's dealings with Ukraine.

People weren't stunned that Kilmeade was stunned.

Some pointed out other things that might surprise Kilmeade.

The House is set to vote on articles of impeachment on the floor this week.

The internet is flooded with messages of support for Navy Captain Brett Crozier, who commands the 5000 person crew of the Roosevelt, an aircraft carrier that was recently forced to dock in Guam.

Crozier sent a letter to the Navy this week begging for additional supplies and resources to aid the 93 people on the Roosevelt who tested positive for the virus that's become a global pandemic, as well as facilities for the additional 1000 people who need to be quarantined.

The Trump campaign was roasted recently when it sent a cease and desist order to a PAC called Priority USA for using audio clips of Trump in an ad to highlight the numerous times he dismissed the virus that's caused a public health crisis in the United States.

Now, the campaign's attempt at revenge with a recent tweet may turn out to be ill advised.

President Donald Trump and his administration's reaction to the global pandemic has been widely panned for its original dismissal of the virus's threat and the reluctance to use federal powers to assist afflicted states.

Trump responds to these criticisms by reminding people every chance he gets that he suspended travel from China—the epicenter of the virus at the time—on February 2.

Georgia's Republican governor, Brian Kemp, recently announced a stay-at-home order for his constituents in the face of the global pandemic.

One of Kemp's measures included limiting gatherings in Georgia to 10 people, but the governor's rightful caution has thrust the status of Georgia's May 19 primary into uncertainty.

For weeks, on-air personalities at Fox News parroted President Donald Trump and his administration's dismissals of the virus that's upended daily life in the United States.

The President finally started acknowledging the threat posed by the virus, yet still refuses to take responsibility for his administration's lack of preparedness. Despite multiple warnings that the United States wasn't prepared for a pandemic, the administration took little action in the early stages of the outbreak, when containing it was more feasible.
