Radio host Wayne Dupree stopped by the set of “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday and explained why he believed CNN is soft on illegal immigration — ratings.
“CNN is trying to raise their ratings. They need illegal immigrants to watch their ratings, to get their ratings back up so that’s why they’re calling them patriotic,” Dupree said while analyzing an interview from CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin.
Dupree also speculated that the network’s “back rooms” could be laced with drugs.
“Listen, I don’t know if there’s wacky tabacky or lightning lettuce that’s in the breakrooms or whatnot, but the American people right now, we want our politicians to enforce the laws,” he said.
Dupree continued uninterrupted for about a minute as “Fox & Friends” hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade listened silently.
The segment focused broadly on the case of Edwin Jackson, the 26-year-old Indianapolis Colts player who was killed in a car accident involving an illegal immigrant who was driving drunk. Manuel Orrego-Savala, a citizen of Guatemala, has twice been deported from the United States in the past.
