'Fox and Friends' Went From Mocking the Climate Strike to Reporting on Catastrophic Weather in Under Two Minutes in the Ultimate Self-Own
Fox & Friends often draws criticism for their hosts' comments. Openly displayed devotion to President Donald Trump, his administration staff, and family members means whatever Trump loves, Ainsley Earhardt, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade—the weekday couch denizens—promote.
And whatever Trump dislikes, the Fox hosts mock or otherwise attempt to discredit.
Tornadoes are cropping up farther eastward in the U.S. than ever before, according to a study published in October in the journal Climate and Atmospheric Science.
While the Midwestern region known colloquially as “tornado alley” — parts of northern Texas into Oklahoma and Kansas into Nebraska — is still No. 1 in terms of twister frequency, tornadoes are now becoming common in Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky and even Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and parts of Ohio and Michigan.
There may be no natural disaster more humbling than hurricanes, with their gale force winds and flood-surges that destroy people’s homes, livelihoods and lives. Now two of them, back-to-back, have battered the United States and parts of the Caribbean and Cuba in the space of three weeks, including Harvey, a Category 4 hurricane, which left much of Houston underwater, and Irma, which started out as a Category 5, the biggest hurricane to hit the United States since Andrew in 1992.
“The U.S. has never been hit, since we started collecting records in 1851, by two Category 4 or stronger hurricanes in the same season,” said Jeff Masters, a meteorologist and co-founder of Weather Underground.
