CAN’T HANDLE IT: Fox News Hosts Agonize As Democrats Thwart GOP’s ‘Red Wave’
The midterm election is not going as Republicans had hoped it would. There was no red wave. Republicans are still poised to take the House with a narrow congressional majority. But the people at Fox News are struggling to comprehend how a “red wave” turned into a ripple.
The network’s right-wing hosts had been assuring viewers that the GOP would take overwhelming control of Congress, but the morning after Tuesday’s midterm election suggested Republicans might take a narrow majority in the House with a Senate majority getting out of reach.
It was a good night for Joe Biden, and a miserable one for Donald Trump and his allies, and “Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt was bewildered.
“Our country is completely divided now,” Earhardt said. “You are either very conservative or radical progressive and woke left. The facts don’t seem to matter here. Some of these individuals that won, when you look at their records, they are so extreme and so progressive. People are just dug in, they are dug in really deep right now and so extreme.”
“How do you explain this country?” she added. “Open borders, record gas prices, inflation is the worst in 40 years, the president’s approval ratings are so bad, worst crime since the 1980s. Yet I heard last night this is an indictment on the Republican Party. Is it? How are these — these issues, when our country is in such a bad state right now, how is this not a red wave?”
