During Wednesday’s edition of Fox & Friends, one of the show hosts inadvertently made a huge admission: Democratic policies are very popular with the American people while conservatives and their policies do not reflect the will of the majority. And that’s the reason GOP Senators are so afraid of ending the filibuster.
That’s essentially what “Fox & Friends” telegraphed to viewers when co-host Ainsley Earhardt responded to a clip of President Joe Biden making news by merely saying he supports reforming the filibuster – not even eliminating it.
“If they end the filibuster, the Democrats will rule our country forever,” she warned before falsely claiming that “We will become a socialist country.”
“So first they’ll do, they’ll kill the filibuster,” she said, reading from prepared notes. “Then they’ll pass this H.R. 1,” Earhardt warned, referring to Democrats’ bill to protect and expand voting rights, reduce gerrymandering and money in politics, and enact ethics reforms.
Earhardt then dived into fearmongering:
“So felons can vote, no ID if you go to vote, register everybody, expand mail-in ballots,” she said about the bill, as if for some reason some U.S. citizens should be prohibited from voting, or have to work harder to cast a ballot.
“Then, guess what, they’re going to start packing the court,” she continued down her list of feared pro-democracy reforms.
“The country’s gone, it’s a free-for-all if this happens,” an alarmed Earhardt railed.
She told Fox News viewers that conservative Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema are opposed to ending the filibuster, “but if they change their minds, it’s over.”
