Donald Trump watches an awful lot of TV. This is obvious when he tweets about something that was aired on Fox News just minutes before. And with Trump basically abdicating his duties as president over the last few weeks, he has more time than ever in front of the television screen.
Many of the anchors at the network have realized that they can use their platform to talk directly to Trump. And many hosts take advantage of this benefit. Brian Kilmeade took this tact today when he urged Trump to start working with the Biden transition team.
First, the Fox and Friends host discussed the dwindling prospects of Trump’s election lawsuits. “Here’s the thing,” he began. “I think for the president of the United States, while he continues to fight on, and this is probably going to be the end of the week for Pennsylvania if they don’t produce something.”
Kilmeade continued, “I think it’s going to, in the country’s best interest, if he starts coordinating on the virus, starts coordinating with security with the Biden team. And just brief them, because, on the virus, we’re going to be able to get this out as soon as two weeks. We need to coordinate on the transportation and implementation, and you’ll see how thorough the planning has been so we don’t drop the ball in a little while.”
