Fox And Friends: 'It Seems Like People Looking' For A Scandal After Niger Tragedy

Burying their heads in the sand is their go-to option when a Republican is Commander-in-Chief.

Fox News' Brian Kilmeade is upset that Americans want to know what our military is doing in Africa after the tragic ambush and death of four U.S. Green Berets.

Fox News' Griff Jenkins went over the latest details about the Niger ambush that are known and turned it over to the three-headed Ghidorah of Trump state-sponsored TV.

Brian Kilmeade was first up because he was the most agitated.

Kilmeade said, "You have an incident happen. People want to get to the bottom of it and you have the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff come forward and say this is what we know so far, we'll give you the latest. And of course, the family members need to know details as soon as we get it."

And Brian got to his anger.

He continued, " And now I'm just curious why the American people need to know how many people are doing what in West Africa? It seems like now -- it seems like people looking for some type of scandal. I need to know how many troops are in West Africa? Really? Just know that Al Qaeda, al-Shabaab, ISIS are fanning out there and they're doing it not for fun but in order to train others to stop terrorists from eventually coming over here."

Americans have a right to know how Trump is allocating our military resources against terrorism and his overall foreign policy. This is not an autocracy. This is a democracy. No president can govern in total secrecy.

It seemed that co-host Steve Doocy wasn't entirely on board with Brian's myopia.

"Well, it's good to know what we are doing overseas - " Doocy said.

Ainsley Earhardt then immediate shifted to Trump's secret strategy policy. Talk about being a "know-nothing."

Earhardt said, "But we don't want to know too much. We don't want to know strategy."

Doocy replied, "Absolutely not. I don't think they talked strategy. They are just trying to get together a time line..."

The reason the Niger story blew up was because of the Trump administration. They were silent for almost two weeks after the attack and when asked why they hadn't disused it, Trump decided to throw every president under the bus before him over condolence calls, which spun into his myopic attempt to console a grieving Gold Star widow.
