Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade made quite the gaffe when discussing immigration with author Douglas Murray.
In the wake of President Donald Trump’s racist tweets against four Democratic congresswomen of color and a subsequent racist chant at his recent North Carolina rally, Kilmeade began parroting Republican talking points about “open borders.”
“If you are against open borders or if you are concerned about immigration, you’re racist, sexist, misogynist, whatever,” Kilmeade said. “Which you’re — it doesn’t matter — we’re not talking color, we’re talking culture.”
Then he accidentally said the opposite.

Quickly correcting himself, Kilmeade said:
“We just don’t want to destroy the color of — the culture of the country.”
Murray responded with an awkward, “Right.”
“Color” and “culture” are similar words, however people couldn’t help but think there was more to the slip.
You say Freudian slip, I say gigantic freaking wink to his viewership.

Even if Kilmeade meant to say culture, is that any better—or significantly different?
Both statements are wrong…color or culture…there is not one color or culture in this country.

Both are gross, Jesus.

Even the corrected version, culture, is xenophobic!
