“Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade delivered one of his usual quips Thursday morning, when he questioned whether he was watching Univision while asking Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) about the effectiveness of Democrats’ use of Spanish during the debates on Wednesday evening.
“You saw the segue to Spanish by three candidates, is that effective in the Spanish community as you know it?” Kilmeade asked Rubio, who responded in Spanish.
“Am I watching Univision?” Kilmeade said with a laugh, referencing the Spanish-language television network.
“Sorry, wrong network,” Rubio replied. “Look I think the problem is they didn’t have answers to real problems. They didn’t have an answer in English and they didn’t have an answer in Spanish.”
