Two new weekend night shows have been announced by Fox News as the outlet makes space for current contributors Trey Gowdy and Dan Bongino.
Gowdy will host a Sunday, 7pm ET, show in the adjusted lineup beginning June 6th. Bongino is being placed at 10pm ET Saturday nights starting June 5th.
Bongino adds the Fox show to his growing media presence, with the launch of his Westwood One daily show coming up May 25th. Streaming outlet Fox Nation will simulcast the daily program (12-3pm ET). The former Secret Service agent has been a contributor since 2019 and takes over the Saturday slot held by Greg Gutfeld until his weeknight show began weeks ago.
Gowdy also has been a contributor on FNC since 2019 and currently hosts a podcast on Fox News Audio. The former prosecutor and Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is expected to focus on both legal and political news on the show.
Fox also announced that panel discussion shows “The Big Saturday Show” and “The Big Sunday Show” will have permanent slots on their specific days (5-6pm ET). The shows will feature a rotating cast when they are placed on the schedule June 5th.
Jen Psaki Hopes Uvalde School Shooting Wakes People Up About Gun Violence
Jen Psaki appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” where the conversation included the mass shooting at Robb Elementary.
Former White House Press Secretary and incoming MSNBC staffer this fall Jen Psaki appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” where the conversation included the mass shooting at Robb Elementary.
During the interview, Pskai stated that she hopes that components of the Uvalde elementary school massacre will “jerk people awake” about the problem of gun violence.
“I was thinking about sending my daughter to kindergarten today. And is she safe? Is she okay there? What kind of security do they have? Should they have security?” Psaki said, per Mediaite.
“And those are the kind of thoughts that are going through your head when you’re in the White House, too, because you’re thinking about what the country is experiencing, what communities are experiencing, and what you can do to help, help heal, help bring some calm, if you can, in that moment.”
Despite not much happening over the past decade, especially after the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in 2012, which shocked the country in the social media era, Psaki says she isn’t losing hope that there will be change.
“Everybody has a voice. Everybody can use that voice in many ways. Yes, you can vote. You can also get involved in a lot of organizations. There are amazing organizations fighting for gun reform out there. And that’s another way to get involved. And nobody is powerless,” Psaki added.
“But I would also say that I learned from working in the White House and working in government is that you have to always have hope. You have to always think that change is possible, and that maybe it’s not going to happen next month or next year. I don’t know.”
Joe Scarborough: “They Should Go After Weapons of War”
Scarborough slammed Republicans and Fox News over the “bulls–t” disputes they raise whenever there is a mass shooting.
“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough slammed Republicans and Fox News over the “bulls–t” disputes they raise whenever there is a mass shooting.
The massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, was the latest school shooting in the United States. 21 people died on Tuesday, including 19 children and two teachers.
Scarborough told co-host Willie Geist that pro-gun arguments that come after mass shootings reminded him of conspiracy theories in one animated commentary.
“It’s always Whac-A-Mole. You know, they say, ‘well, what about this conspiracy theory?’ You disprove it after spending days. ‘Okay, well, what about this?’ And it’s always Whac-A-Mole,” Scarborough said, per Mediaite.
“It’s always Whac-A-Mole! It’s always bulls–t! They always play the game. So they never have to talk about the children who are murdered, about all the deaths. One mass shooting after another mass shooting after another mass shooting.”
Scarborough added that it’s time to go after weapons of war and weapons that police cannot stop when a mass shooting occurs.
“Going after weapons of war. They should go after weapons of war. They should go after weapons that police officers can’t stop. That police officers … and body armor?” Scarborough said.
Ainsley Earhardt: “I Don’t Know How to Fix This”
“I don’t know how to fix this. But I do know you love your neighbor as yourself,” Earhardt said.
“FOX & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt became emotional when she was talking about the state of the country in the aftermath of the Texas mass school shooting that left 19 children dead.
In a transcript obtained by Barrett News Media, Earhardt said she longs for a day when the country can return to its post 9/11 state where people seemed to care for one another.
“I don’t know how to fix this. But I do know you love your neighbor as yourself,” Earhardt said. “That’s what the bible instructs us to do. It doesn’t say “love your neighbor if he or she is a Democrat or a Republican.”
According to Fox News, law enforcement officials said Salvador Ramos acted alone and was killed by a Border Patrol agent who rushed into Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, without waiting for backup.
“Parents, take your children to church. I don’t know what’s going on in these individuals’ hearts, but they have a void,” said Earhardt.
“They have a hole in their heart, and they are evil and they are unhappy. Help them to get help. And I know it’s not always the parents’ fault because the parents are trying in many cases and when there’s mental illness involved, sometimes you’re at your wit’s end and there’s not much more you can do. But I don’t know what the solution is.”
