Behold the Single Most Disgusting Response to Trump's Afghan Bombing Campaign Yet

Even by the standards of Fox News, this is appalling.

As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump vowed to "bomb the sh*t out of ISIS." On Thursday, the U.S. military dropped the "mother of all bombs" in Afghanistan’s eastern Nangarhar Province, along the border with Pakistan.

Like Trump's Syria strike last week, his latest campaign has been heavily praised by Fox News, including President Trump's favorite program "Fox and Friends," which even decided to give the footage a stirring soundtrack.

That's Toby Keith you hear crooning over the carnage.

Brian Kilmeade and the team spent a sizable portion of their segment chuckling at Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has condemned the campaign.

"One of the things we want to know is, what was the impact on civilians?" Warren said Thursday. "It's powerfully important...  knowing who gets killed in these attacks, because that's the real question about our future." 

"Doesn't Donald Trump just want to kill the people who want to kill us?!" exclaimed co-host Ainsley Earhardt.

Geraldo Rivera acknowledged that "one of his favorite things" is "watching bombs dropped on bad guys."
