Since it involved Fox News, Brian Stelter’s spider-sense kicked into high gear upon hearing The Hill report that the first lady’s press secretary was demanding an apology from Fox News and weekend anchor Rachel Campos-Duffy. It seems that Campos-Duffy remarked that Dr. Jill Biden did the country a disservice by letting her husband run for president in 2020.

Dominick Mastragelo reports:
The first lady’s press secretary on Monday called for an apology from Fox News and weekend host Rachel Campos-Duffy, who over the weekend said Jill Biden had failed the country by letting her husband run for president.
Campos-Duffy also criticized President Biden’s “mental state” in commentary criticizing the exit of troops from Afghanistan and the administration’s struggles to evacuate people from that country.
Campos-Duffy said the most “patriotic thing Jill Biden could have done was tell her husband, to love her husband, and not let him run in this mental state that he’s in.”
Here’s the first lady’s press secretary:
This is disgusting. @RCamposDuffy and @FoxNews know better. They can do better and their viewers deserve better. I hope they'll apologize to the First Lady and leave this kind of talk in the🗑️where it belongs. https://t.co/emBFCwKDiV

It is disgusting, the way she prodded him into running when he’s clearly not up to the task.

To be honest, I was shocked that she didn’t put on the brakes. She hovers over him like he’s mentally fragile – because it’s obvious that he is. He is only 7 months into first term but cognitively he is where Reagan was at end of send term.

Apologize THIS. 🙄

Not before Jill apologizes for not caring enough about her husband or country.

She’s just saying out loud what so many Americans have been thinking for awhile now.

Zero shits will be given about any of your feelings. Rachel Campos-Duffy or FoxNews will not be a diversion from the complete shit show that is the Biden administration. Now go eat some marshmallows and let the adults clean up this mess.

It’s true, the entire Democratic Party knew this guy was mentally compromised and they still propped him up as their candidate. A betrayal to the American people. Them and the media cover for this guy daily but with the Afghan debacle, he’s exposed and they can’t cover for him.

It’s amazing how many people in Stelter’s replies think that Fox News should be taken off the air entirely. We also don’t see much of a story here, except for Biden’s press secretary letting everyone know what was said over the weekend that would have otherwise flown under the radar.
