Brian Kilmeade is not having any of Roy Moore’s denials.
The longtime co-host of “Fox & Friends” sounded off against the embattled Alabama Senate candidate on his radio show Friday, telling Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) that he was disgusted by Moore’s behavior and that if it was his daughter, it would get ugly.
“It’s not he said/she said. She’s in high school. She got a call in her trigonometry class to go to the general office at which time 30 year-old Roy Moore was on the other line asking her out for a date,” said Kilmeade. “That is obscene and I would kick his head in if it was the one of my daughters and then I would call the cops.”
Lankford was on the same page, suggesting he would not be able to vote for Moore.
“As the dad of a teenage daughter, I was absolutely astounded by the first accusation and then it just comes up over and over and over again,” he said. “Every vote that I take is that I have to be able to explain to my children and that’s one I can’t explain to my children.”
While Kilmeade was animated in his denunciation, his stance contrasts sharply with many on his network who have actively sought to carry water for Moore. Some, like Tucker Carlson, have all but ignored the story, while others like Sean Hannity have responded with segments implying the women accusing Moore were lying.
The latter example led nearly a dozen brands to cease advertising on Hannity’s program.
After originally getting tough with Moore on his Tuesday evening show, suggesting he may have to leave the race, Hannity mostly backed down Wednesday, punting the matter to the wisdom of Alabama voters.
Needless to say there has been no talk on Fox News of kicking Moore’s head in — until now.
