“Fox and Friends” host Steve Doocy, who President Donald Trump ranked 12/10 for loyalty, responded to the Trump-Ukraine scandal Tuesday.

During a “Fox and Friends” segment, the co-hosts weighed in on the Washington Post’s Monday night report that Trump personally ordered a hold on about $400 million in military aid to Ukraine for about a week before he had the now-infamous phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

After co-host Ainsley Earhardt said that the Ukraine scandal is “like saying [co-hosts] Brian or Steve, you’re going to lose your job because of a conversation that someone says you promised someone, but we don’t know what you said,” Doocy said that the scandal is “really off the rails wrong” only if Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine on the condition that the Ukrainian government investigate former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

“If the President said I will give you the money but you have got to investigate Joe Biden, that is really off the rails wrong,” Doocy said. “But if it’s something else, you know it, would be nice to know what it is.”

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.
