Fox’s Kilmeade goes off on Bob Costas for unhinged rant smearing Trump supporters

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade went off on Bob Costas over the sportscaster’s unhinged rant against not only former President Donald Trump but those who support the expected 2024 Republican presidential nominee.

Kilmeade was asked to respond to the rant Monday during an appearance on Fox News’ The Faulkner Focus, and he took great exception to Costas insulting millions of Americans suggesting it was a play from the Hillary Clinton “deplorable” playbook.

“I know Bob Costas. I know how bright he is… by the time he was 34, he was the best sportscaster in the country doing all the biggest events ever. I know that’s exactly how he feels,” Kilmeade said.

“But I think it’s so — it’s so shallow of him to think that you can have your feelings and put down 74 million people along the way,” he added. “If people — especially him, coming from a place where people support their teams and their players and their boxers and their athletes and people are loyal. There are people loyal to him for reasons… they should be respected.”

Costas did not hold back during a Saturday appearance on CNN.

“He is by far the most disgraceful figure in modern presidential history,” Costas said of Trump. “He’s only become more disgraceful since 2016 and since 2020.”

“He is a bubbling cauldron of loathsome traits,” he continued. “You have to be in the throes of some sort of toxic delusion and a toxic cult to believe that Donald Trump has ever been in any sense emotionally, psychologically, intellectually or ethically fit to be president.”

Costas was critical of Democrats for backing President Joe Biden while praising California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D).

“How feckless are Democrats if they realize this guy could possibly lose to Trump, then get somebody else out there. You don’t go into the Super Bowl with a quarterback with a dead arm. You don’t do it. This is so obvious,” he said.

“He cannot make that case for himself. He can not make that clear, cogent, vigorous case for himself,” Costas said of the 81-year-old cognitively challenged president. “Nor can he prosecute the obvious case against Trump in the court of public opinion. Gavin Newsom frequently goes on these programs and makes a very articulate and detailed case for President Biden. But Biden is unable to put together two consecutive sentences of the five perfect paragraphs that Gavin Newsom just put together.”
