Fox Friends Brian Kilmeade and Peter Johnson Facilitate Rep. King’s Partisanship Against Obama

Reported by Ellen - December 30, 2009 -

On Monday (12/28/09) Republican Congressman Peter King visited Fox & Friends to attack (strike) discuss the administration’s handling of the foiled Christmas terrorism attack. Hosts Brian Kilmeade and Peter Johnson not only failed to offer any balance to King’s blatant partisanship, Kilmeade actively endorsed King’s chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee (now he’s the ranking member) and Johnson nodded in agreement. With video.

King wasted no time on camera before he began bashing the Obama administration not just for their handling of this incident but also Fort Hood and even the White House party crashers.

There was no objection from Kilmeade, not even a comment that maybe King was using this appearance to make political hay. Nor did Kilmeade or Johnson find anything the least bit disingenuous, at least not enough to mention, when King laughably said, “I always try to be non partisan” in matters like this.

Then, of course, it was right back to his administration bashing.

King also complained that the president waited 72 hours before speaking. But where was King when the Bush administration waited even longer, in the wake of the very similar “shoe bomber” incident? Silent, according to Politico.

As the interview concluded, King said self-servingly, “I haven’t been chairman of the Committee for the last 3 years. I was much more aggressive when I was chairman of the Homeland Security Committee.”

Kilmeade said, “Yeah, you were and you were able to get information.”

Johnson nodded in agreement.
