The ‘Fox & Friends’ co-hosts responded pretty much exactly how you’d expect them to on Monday after [he assaulted her] of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his wife in an elevator.
Without giving many details about the assault, the hosts quickly began comparing the incident to other cases of [he assaulted her] among celebrities. But rather than putting any kind of blame on the abuser, the co-hosts pointed the finger at the women.
“She still married him!” Steve Doocy said of Rice’s wife, Janay Palmer.
“Rihanna [he assaulted her] to Chris Brown right after [he assaulted her],” Brian Kilmeade said. “A lot of people thought that was a terrible message.”
Doocy compared the video to the elevator incident between Jay Z and Solange. To which Kilmeade then– you guessed it– defended Jay Z for not hitting back.
“I think the message is, take the stairs,” Kilmeade concluded.
No. That’s really not the message.
Doocy then chimed in once more.
“The message is, when you’re in an elevator, there’s a camera.”
Nope. Still not the message.
