Fox Host: Bergdahl’s Dad Looks ‘Like A Member Of The Taliban’ (VIDEO)

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday suggested that Bob Bergdahl, the father of the soldier released from the Taliban, was anti-American and said that he looked like a member of the Taliban.

After referencing reports that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl may have been “collaborating with the enemy” in Afghanistan, Kilmeade turned to Bob Bergdahl.

The “Fox and Friends” host said that Bergdahl made “some anti-American tweets and statements,” referencing a tweet apparently published by Bergdahl saying that he was “working to free all Guantanamo prisoners.”

Kilmeade then criticized Bergdahl’s beard, which he grew in order to mark the time his son was held prisoner.

“Really?” Kilmeade asked. “I mean, he says he was growing his beard because his son was in captivity. Well, your son’s out now. So if you really don’t — no longer look like a member of the Taliban, you don’t have to look like a member of the Taliban. Are you out of razors?”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
