“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade seemed to brake from the ranks on Monday over the controversial anti-Trump version of the play Julius Caesar.
Amid reports that people are rushing the stage to protest a Trump lookalike being brutally stabbed and assassinated in the play, Kilmeade says the show must go on.
“Let the play go on,” he said on Monday’s show. “I don’t think you should be rushing the stage, period, whether you agree or not.”
“Why don’t we just make Shakespeare, Shakespeare?” co-host Ainsley Earhardt said. “Why do we have to make it political?”
Putting things into perspective, Kilmeade responded that “it’s not up to us.”
“You have a creative person write the play,” he noted. “You don’t like the play, protest outside, but not once it starts. These are just actors doing their jobs.”
Kilmeade’s stance followed on earlier segment where he challenged attorney Jay Sekulow, who recently joined President Donald Trump’s legal team, on why he didn’t advise the president to stop tweeting so much.
