‘Payback time?’ Brian Kilmeade urges Trump to meddle in Russia’s election

“Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade should stick to his day job because his foreign policy advice is lame, according to social media.

Kilmeade responded to Robert Mueller’s toothless indictment of 13 Russian internet trolls for election meddling by suggesting that President Trump meddle in Russia’s upcoming election.

“Reading this Mueller indictment..our biggest problem Russians don’t fear or respect us @realDonaldTrump has to change that,” Kilmeade tweeted. “They have an election coming up..payback time?”

Russia’s election is March 8, but incumbent President Vladimir Putin is expected to win by a landslide since curious things (like imprisonment, freak accidents, or death) keep happening to his challengers.

Kilmeade’s tweet was widely slammed on social media, with many mocking him for having the “dumbest take” on the Mueller indictments.

Many pointed out the obvious, which is that the United States has long been meddling in other nations’ elections, just like Russia and China do in ours.

Remember the mainstream media outrage when Barack Obama meddled in Israel’s elections by trying to oust Benjamin Netanyahu? Neither do we.



Besides, many believe the Russian elections are already rigged — not by online trolls operating fake Twitter accounts, but through more sinister methods.

Brian Kilmeade has become an increasingly vocal critic of President Trump over the past year. In September 2017, Kilmeade was blasted by Trump supporters for saying the president shouldn’t criticize NFL stars for disrespecting the national anthem.

“He made things immeasurably worse by speaking out,” Kilmeade said. “And I know what his intention was, but it was galvanizing in the wrong direction.”

Here’s the reality: Many Americans — even non-Trump supporters — were furious when NFL stars refused to stand for the national anthem. Where’s the proof? NFL ratings tanked and attendance at football games plunged following the unpatriotic protests.

At the Super Bowl two weeks ago, everyone stood for the Star-Spangled Banner, so it looks like President Trump got the last word on that.

Another narrative war Trump is winning concerns the flailing Russia investigation. To date, special counsel Robert Mueller has produced no evidence that Trump campaign aides colluded with Russia.


Even Rob Goldman, who oversees Facebook ads, said “Russian meddling” did not affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Let that sink in.
