‘Stone Cold Racist’: Internet Excoriates ‘Fox & Friends’ Host for Saying Migrant Kids Are Less Important Than U.S. Kids

"Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade once again is under fire for sharing his racist views on the Fox News morning show. On Friday Kilmeade weighed in on the 2,400 or so migrant children who were kidnapped by the Trump administration, are being held hostage, and likely will not be reunited with their parents.

“Like it or not, these aren’t our kids," Kilmeade told his co-hosts. "Show them compassion, but it’s not like [Trump is] doing this to the people of Idaho or Texas. These are people from another country."

In other words, kids from Central America aren't as important as kids from the US. (So much for "Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world.")

This is far from his first dance with racism. It was just Tuesday that Kilmeade launched a racist attack against the immigrant children, claiming that "a lot of them" will turn into MS-13 gang members. And Kilmeade has lamented that Americans "keep marrying other species and other ethnics."

Many on social media expressed outrage over yet another of Kilmeade's racist rants.
