Ainsley Dissed by “Nerd”

Earhardt: “Are we chopped liver?” Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhart had some shade thrown her way by founder Kevin McCarthy Friday.

At the end of his segment entitled “Golden Globes Predictions,” Kevin remarked, “[Co-anchor] Steve [Doocy], I’m coming to New York: We’re watching Deadpool together sometime! We’re watching Deadpool together sometime!

Seemingly offended at Kevin’s slight to her, Ainsley stammered, “Oh! What, wha!” Pointing to herself and to her co-host Brian Kilmeade, she exclaimed, “Are we chopped liver?”

Not wanting to be drawn into that drama, Brian dismissively waved his hand downward and laughed, “I saw it already: I can’t watch it again!

In response, Kevin chuckled heartily.

Chagrined, Ainsley sighed, “I’ll just have to watch it by myself, I guess.”

Uncomfortably, Kevin chuckled again: But, in a rather abbreviated fashion.

To this viewer, Kevin’s response seemed somewhat strange. Usually, he is quite sycophantic and solicitous towards the F&F co-hosts: But, he seemed a bit reluctant to assuage a slighted Ainsley Friday. Perchance, Kevin is feeling a mite too much like F&F family for Ainsley’s taste.

    Gigs, you’re right: But, with all that is going on at FNC (e.g., Megyn’s departure, Tucker’s ascension to her spot, Martha’s apparent temporary replacement of him, etc., the author assumes that sometimes that FNC viewers need a little levity to make it all go down somewhat easier. :-)

    Agreed, a lot of drama at FNC…..not much about it here.

    And don’t forget Bob Beckel’s return to The Five- that is something I thought I’d never see.

    I wonder if Kevin, as a newlywed, was uncomfortable picturing himself watching Deadpool with Ainsley. Even though I don’t think she is at all naïve she comes across as so sweet and pure- and Deadpool is pretty edgy at times.

    I too enjoy the blog!! Thanks for taking the time to do it!

    Thanks, Anon & Christie! I’m glad that you enjoy this blog. Re Bob’s return, Christie, I wasn’t expecting it either. :-) As to Deadpool, I haven’t seen it yet: But, I think Ainz can be a bit bawdy on occasion, too.
