Fox & Friends Host Says 'We Can All Relate' To Families That Survived Soviet Concentration Camps

Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt left her co-host speechless this week when she claimed that "we can all relate" to surviving as a Jew in Soviet concentration camps.

Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt left her co-host speechless this week when she claimed that "we can all relate" to surviving as a Jew in Soviet concentration camps.

On Thursday's edition of Fox & Friends, Heather Nauert reported that the PBS program Finding Your Roots had uncovered that actor Dustin Hoffman's great-grandmother "Libba" had fought against great odds to survive Soviet concentration camps targeting Jews.

"People ask me today: 'What are you?' I say, 'I'm a Jew,'" Hoffman said with tears in his eyes. "They all survived for me to be here."

"Powerful program," Fox News host Steve Doocy noted at the conclusion of Nauert's report.

"We can all relate to that, though," Earhardt added, silencing her two co-hosts. "You think about what your grandparents did to give you a better life, what your parents did to give you a better life. Pretty remarkable."

"It is indeed," Doocy said, pushing forward to the next segment.

In 2014, author Yvette Manessis Corporon looked into Earhardt's family history during a Fox & Friends Thanksgiving segment. Corporon determined that Earhardt, who grew up in North and South Carolina, came from "good stock" because one of her relatives was a pallbearer for former President George Washington, and one of her distant great-grandmothers lived to be 100 years old in 1636.
