Fox & Friends was decidedly unimpressed with Vivek Ramaswamy’s incendiary antics during NBC’s Republican presidential primary debate in Miami.
The Fox News morning show started on Thursday by reviewing the debate highlights, which Brian Kilmeade summed up right away as Ramaswamy “throwing bombs” across the board. Ainsley Earhardt was the first to bring up Ramaswamy’s attacks on Nikki Haley, saying, “Women don’t appreciate it. When you go after your daughter and your high heels, it’s sexist.”
Steve Doocy clearly agreed, saying, “He had a terrible night.” The Fox host acknowledged this as Ramaswamy’s strategy though, noting how he went after the Republican National Committee and the debate moderators before going one-on-one with Haley.
“That was pretty much his play,” said Doocy. “He was an attack dog last night.”
As he and his colleagues reviewed the policy positions displayed at the debate, Doocy determined that “Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis were, for the most part, the winners.” This led him to assess that the rest of the primary field should consider dropping out soon and consolidating around one of them to present a viable alternative to Donald Trump, who remains the GOP frontrunner.
“I know Chris Christie, it’s hard to see a path. But man, is he good,” Kilmeade said. While the panel noted that Christie could do well with independents as the GOP general election candidate, “right now it’s tough” being anti-Trump in the Republican primary.
