Today Independence Day had an double entendre aspect for Fox & Friends fans. You were free of FNC TV this morn: you could start the grill, prepare your adult libations, and get into the festive spirit without fear of missing much. F&F’s weekday crew of Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, Gretchen Carlson, and Alisyn Camerota were replaced by their weekend co-horts of Clayton Morris, Dave Briggs, Ainsley Earhardt, and Courtney Friel. The B-Team offered little excitement with no fireworks donned in their newly conservative wardrobe. The castrato choir were enrobed in their dark suits and their female counterparts were cloaked in mundane midis. Scarily, I almost hoped for some of Clayton’s inanity to enliven the day.
One positive note: Courtney had a less happy take on the death of Larry Harmon a/k/a Bozo the Clown the second time around.
