The Fox & Friends crew kicked off their Wednesday morning by sounding off on media coverage of President Donald Trump’s over-the-top 4th of July celebration.

“They find everything that he does so repulsive and so ridiculous and so overblown,” host Brian Kilmeade said after playing a clip of pundits criticizing Trump’s bash on MSNBC, NBC News, CBS and CNN.

“Shouldn’t this be a bipartisan issue?” co-host Ainsley Earhardt chimed in. “We’re celebrating America!”

Trump’s hastily planned “Salute To America” celebration is set to kick off in Washington, D.C. Thursday evening, complete with tanks and politicos.

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.
