“Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt was attacked online by social media users upset over her observation Friday that tens of millions of President Donald Trump’s voters are concerned about the future.
“There are 75 million people that voted for President Trump. And they are scared. They are worried about what the future of this country looks like. They are confused and heartbroken that their candidate didn’t win and they don’t want to be forgotten,” she said.

Earhardt went on to mention fellow Fox News colleague Tucker Carlson’s Thursday monologue, in which he discussed the country’s “monomaniacal” focus on “one man” — the president — while contemplating what life in the country will be like “in February” after President-elect Joe Biden takes over.
The morning co-host was pilloried on social media.
Warning: Strong language
“Sorry Ainsley, after 4 years of hearing ‘f**k your feelings’ and watching a right wing mob assault the US Capitol, Biden voters aren’t really ready to shed any tears for poor disgruntled Trump supporters,” wrote one user.

“Ah yes, I remember well when the US Capitol was stormed and vandalized by thousands of angry liberals on January 6, 2017 when Clinton’s defeat was finalized, so I guess you’re right, Ainsley,” another wrote.

“Ainsley Earhardt saying that 75 million people are confused and scared about Trump losing is her version of ‘there are fine people on both sides,’” still another wrote.

Earhardt’s comment comes on the heels of an assault on the U.S. Capitol Building by at least hundreds of supporters of President Trump after he urged them in a speech during a “Stop the Steal” rally to march there.
That said, the president never urged supporters to storm the building.
During his monologue, Carlson said that, as the president’s term nears its end, it’s appropriate to reflect on whether “any single person, anyone, worth all of” the “time and attention” paid to Trump.
