    Re: Fox & Friends welcomes Ainsley Earhardt to the curvy couch.

    Well played by F&F. The old videos of her work was a nice touch.

    As someone coming to this with no preconceived opinions because I had never seen her before other than some brief clips online I must say she seems like a total delight. I can see why she is so well liked by so many co-workers.

    She reminds me a little of Lara Spencer over at ABC’s GMA. Full of life, funny, perky and personality plus.

    Another smart move Mr. Ailes.

      Those qualities are aggravating at noon, let alone 7a.m.

        Apparently ABC and Fox News feel there are enough people out there that disagree with your POV.

          I personally like Bret. Though I also like John. Just not as much.

  • Mitch Alan

    I will probably stop watching Fox and Friends after Ainsley Earhardt starts hosting the show. She just doesn’t seem very bright. No real sense of humor, just a toothy smile. I want a really smart female host and she isn’t it.

    • Larry Kelly

      Might try Rachael Maddow. I hear she is the smartest female on the planet.

        Only on Mon, Wed, Fri. Hillary has that title the rest of the days of the week.

        • Grandpa D

          And Hillary never lies.

            No, in repose she levitates 2.5 feet above a yoga mat.

            That’s the same distance of the Dalai Lama’s eyebrows from his clavicles.

            The only time that she ever told the truth was when she showed her true nature and started barking.

            I hope that’s not a crack at dogs.

            That’s my canine crew.

          • homemaker

            Or at tries really, really hard not to lie.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        At least she claims she is.

      What happened Mitch?

      A few days ago you commented, “I am glad they are giving Ainsley the gig. Anna’s smile seems too forced.”

      • Mitch Alan

        I heard her talking this morning. Airhead.

        • Michael T

          You do know she attended Florida State on an academic scholarship?

          Granted she’s had some verbal snafus along the way.But then again who hasn’t including Brian Kilmeade and just about every host in prime time.

    Anyone have a link to coverage plans tomorrow for Nevada and South Carolina?

  • sky303

    MSNBC couldn’t beat CNN with Trump or without not even the VP helped …

    • Michael T

      The low ratings could have worked to the benefit of Hillary Clinton. 😊

      She was grilled pretty good on MSNBC — especially by audience members. Much more so than Joe & Mika’s town hall with Trump the night before.

    Does Bill O’Reilly ever work? Seems like he is always gone before big events.
