Brian Kilmeade Gets Defensive as Ex-Obama Campaign Manager Says Fox Is Trump’s ‘Happy Place’

Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade grew incredibly defensive on Thursday morning when former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe noted that President Donald Trump has Fox News on his side, claiming that Trump “doesn’t have the whole network.”

“Trump has this network,” the ex-Obama adviser said. “He has his unofficial campaign chairman Vladimir Putin. He has billions of dollars. He is a brilliant marketer.”

Kilmeade, meanwhile, grumbled that it was “not right” to invoke the Russian leader in that manner, prompting Plouffe to reply: “Listen, [Trump] got help last time.”

The pro-Trump Fox host went on to defend Fox News, insisting that the entire channel wasn’t completely in the tank for the president.
