‘Just no proof of it’: Kilmeade and Doocy worry about Trump’s fraud claims

Powered by Topple

Fox News’ morning hosts urged President Donald Trump and his campaign legal team to “bring out the evidence” on multiple allegations of vote fraud in the November 2020 election.

Co-hosts of Fox & Friends weighed in Monday on the latest developments in voter-fraud allegations after addressing the critical importance of this week’s Senate run-off elections in Georgia. Brian Kilmeade seemed to be worried about “anarchy” amid plans for protests in Washington, D.C. set for Jan. 6, the same day Congress is expected to certify the Electoral College vote results.

“Democrats in the past have done things like this but not quite this large. So it will be interesting to see what happens,” co-host Steve Doocy said, referring to plans by GOP lawmakers, including 140 House members, to object to the Electoral College results.

“Election integrity is extremely important – in fact, it’s necessary,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt noted in response.

“You hear of people saying they have got dead people’s ballots,” she said. “I heard one lady say she got four ballots in the mail. Two of them were for the people who lived in her house before, and both of them are dead…so many people have questions.”

“They are worried if they don’t do something about it now, this will continue and mail-in ballots will continue in the next election,” she added.

“It’s got no shot of success,” Kilmeade said.

“That’s the case that Donald Trump and his lawyers have put out. They said there is all this evidence,” Doocy noted. “But they haven’t really produced the evidence.”

He went on to cite the phone call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger which was leaked on Sunday. Doocy recounted how the president pointed out there were “thousands of dead people” who voted while Raffensperger countered that they only found two.

“Ultimately, is this going to make any difference? Brian, to your point, probably not. But for a lot of people who feel like they have been listening to the president of the United States and he is asking for loyalty to them, they are standing up for him at the 11th hour because, after Wednesday, that’s it,” Doocy said.

“I just worry about, you have that along with the protest the president is calling for on Tuesday and Wednesday,” Kilmeade responded.

“I mean, this is the type of anarchy that doesn’t work for anybody, Republicans or Democrats in the big picture. And I just think it’s up to the president’s legal team to produce what they are telling him they have,”

“If you have thousands, you are telling the president you have thousands of dead people voting in Georgia. Show the president and then have the president hold it up,” he said adding that “so far there’s just no proof of it.”

“Just because you voted for the president, doesn’t mean this evidence actually exists,” Kilmeade contended.

“There have been a number of the president’s supporters who have said things on TV or on social media that have, you know, clouded the waters where it’s like wow, thousands of dead people. Dominion machines and all that stuff,” Doocy interjected.

“But interestingly enough, that information is never entered into a court because you cannot present information to a court if you do not have the evidence. And so far we haven’t seen the evidence,” he added. “Maybe today at noon bring out the evidence but we haven’t seen the evidence.”

In a later segment on the Fox News morning show, Doocy called out Democrats objecting to the “unprecedented” moves by GOP lawmakers, noting that they pulled the same moves themselves not so long ago.

The Hill media columnist Joe Concha recounted how Democratic House members voted against the results of the 2004 election in which Republican George W. Bush was elected president.

Concha noted that 31 House members voted against Bush’s win as he read CNN’s comments about the challenge at the time.

The objecting Democrats “wanted to draw attention to the need for aggressive election reform in the wake of what they said was widespread voter problems,” Concha read.

“Boy, that sounds familiar. That sounds very 2020, doesn’t it, Steve?” he asked.
