‘Fox & Friends’ Host Refuses to Believe Trump Wasn’t ‘Furious’ over Tulsa Rally
One of the president’s most reliable media defenders wasn’t buying the spin from Team Trump on Monday morning, pushing back when White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany tried to claim President Donald Trump wasn’t mad about his sparsely attended rally.
Interviewing McEnany on the president’s favorite morning program Fox & Friends, co-host Steve Doocy brought up the underwhelming attendance at Saturday’s campaign rally in Tulsa, noting the estimated crowd size was only 6,200—roughly one-third the arena’s capacity.
“How angry was the president that there was just a sea of blue, empty chairs?” Doocy wondered aloud, adding that Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale blames the media and protesters for the poor showing.
“The president was not angry at all,” McEnany said. “The president was quite energized. I was with him after the rally. It was a huge success. His speech got rave reviews.”
Despite the infamous image of a downtrodden Trump shuffling off Marine One on Saturday night, McEnany insisted the president was in “good spirits” and a “great mood” on the trip back to Washington after the rally. Doocy, meanwhile, didn’t believe for a moment that the president wasn’t extremely upset.
