‘Fox & Friends’: ‘Might as well Split the Country Right in Half’ Unless Americans Talk to ‘the Other Side’

‘Fox & Friends’: ‘Might as well Split the Country Right in Half’ Unless Americans Talk to ‘the Other Side’

Fox & Friends were quick to celebrate a crowd cheering President Donald Trump at an LSU/Clemson game on Monday but the hosts were also dismayed at criticism of actor Vince Vaughn, who was pictured speaking to Trump and garnered a strong reaction online.

However forceful the criticism of Vaughn might have been, Fox News’ Steve Doocy’s interpretation of the state of the country was more severe. Doocy speculated that the divide in the country is so bad, it might soon be necessary to become two nations.

“Nobody’s hired lip readers to figure out what he said to the President,” Doocy said. “We don’t know if it was positive. We don’t know if he was critical.”

“But unless America talks to the other side and we can just talk to each other, this is gonna be a country — they might as well split the country right in half, right down the Mississippi.”

“They tried that once,” co-host Brian Kilmeade said, referring to the Civil War in which some 600,000 Americans were killed.

“They did,” Doocy said. “But that’s what we’re going. If you can’t talk to each other, we’re in big trouble.”
