Although critics slammed the president’s use of the White House as a prop for the Republican National Convention as unethical and illegal, the “Fox & Friends” co-host had a different take on Friday ― a really foolish one.
Kilmeade claimed Trump had the right to make a political speech at the White House for reasons of comfort, and justified it by making a false claim about Joe Biden’s Democratic National Convention acceptance speech.
Another key fact: Trump may currently live at the White House, but he doesn’t own it. It’s the federal government’s.
Many people on Twitter tried to school Kilmeade on this important distinction.
