Kilmeade: On the Money?

Not exactly. Possibly, Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade tried to “coin” a new national motto this morning. Or, more probably, during a segment with guest co-hosts, Dave Briggs and Juliet Huddy (on a Florida cop whose homeowners’ organization was sanctioning him for a garage door sign that said, “God bless America,”), he simply got somewhat confused. When Dave defended the homeowners’ organization for ordering the patriotic slogan down by saying that it did not condone any statements at all, Brian countered, “Right. But, it’s on our money. I think if it’s on your money, you could probably use it on your garage, ‘God bless America.'”*

Strangely, Dave merely answered, “Yeah” and then promoted the upcoming interview with the Florida policeman. Seeming to be taken aback, Juliet started to mouth something but then sat stone-faced as she simply shook her head as if in agreement. Apparently, Brian did not even get a correction from a producer in his ear: the segment ended without any correction.

[Author’s aside: The national motto inscribed on the money of Americans? “IN GOD WE TRUST.” If the reader wants empirical evidence, pull out a coin or a dollar bill and look.]

    Do you remember the old $100,000.00 bill? It had a picture of Woodrow Wilson on it, and the inscription read: “In the League of Nations We Trust.”

    When Glenn Beck mentioned this particular fact the other day on TV, it made him so mad he started to cry.

    Hgb3, the author has not been able to verify your inscription assertion: please kindly provide a supporting link (e.g., one with a photo of the back of the bill). :) However, Mr. Beck may well have been crying if he realized that the $100,000 Woodrow Wilson bill is a GOLD certificate note (purported to be now worth approximately $1.6 million).
