After Ivanka Got Booed in London, 'Fox and Friends' Host Really Wants You to Believe That Booing Wasn't for Ivanka At All

Fox News was working overtime Tuesday morning ahead of President Donald Trump's press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May. Trump's approval rating in the United Kingdom—where his presence has brought massive protests complete with Trump baby blimps and even robots—is a measly 21 percent.

One Fox and Friends host had to reach even further than usual to make the president, his family, and his administration look good.


This was most evident than when onlookers showered the president's daughter, Ivanka Trump, and National Security Advisor John Bolton with emphatic boos as the pair emerged from 10 Downing Street to watch the joint press conference.

But Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade was quick to assure that the boos weren't for Ivanka, but for Bolton.

Watch below:

The boos became unignorable, observed by a cohost who asked: "Does that sound like some booing?"

Kilmeade leapt to the rescue:

"It does. It's not for Ivanka, it's for John Bolton, he loves it. He pretty much is looked at as somebody who's the tough guy in that administration and he loves that label."

Given that Ivanka Trump is a far more recognizable face within the administration, having faced widespread criticism for using the White House to boost her business and—ironically enough—for her emails, it's likely that at least some of the booing was intended for her.

Which is exactly what people pointed out to Kilmeade.

But, wait, more importantly:

At least Bolton is likely willing to be the scapegoat. After all, "he loves that label."

The administration of President Donald Trump relies on its white Evangelical base to keep its support consistently hovering around 40 percent.

In keeping with this, President Donald Trump often invokes anti-abortion values he claims to hold dear. He's falsely claimed that Democrats are determined to rip babies from their mothers' wombs and that parents often discuss with their doctors whether or not to keep the baby...after the baby is born.

These claims are patently false, but they rile up the base.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos seems to be playing right along in promoting abortion hysteria, if a recent speech is any indication.

After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.

Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.

And the prices just went up.
