“Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade ranted wildly Thursday morning, angrily declaring that Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) had no right to bring his religion into the decision he made to vote in favor of convicting President Donald Trump for abuse of power.
“The allegations made in the articles of impeachment are very serious. As a Senator-juror, I swore an oath, before God, to exercise ‘impartial justice.’ I am a profoundly religious person. I take an oath before God as enormously consequential. I knew from the outset that being tasked with judging the President, the leader of my own party, would be the most difficult decision I have ever faced. I was not wrong.”
A clearly agitated Kilmeade angrily ridiculed Romney for even daring to mention religion in the same breath with his impeachment vote:
“Don’t bring religion into this! For him to bring religion in — it has nothing to do with religion! ‘My faith makes me do this’ — are you kidding! What about your faith and this case meld together? That is unbelievable for him to bring religion into this! His faith!”
Co-host Steve Doocy meekly defended Romney, noting that “a lot of people are guided by their faith.”
But that only seemed to further enrage Kilmeade, who replied:
“That was totally insincere! ‘My faith makes me want to convict Donald Trump,’ when two years ago you said he was unworthy for the office?!”
Wait a minute! Is this the same Fox News that is so fond of saying that political figures should be guided by religious principles and pretends that Donald Trump is a moral man?
Mitt Romney proved that he’s a true statesman yesterday. If Kilmeade and his ilk in the GOP can’t understand and respect that, then they need to reread the Bible they claim is so vital to their lives and heed its instruction.
