Fox News is under fire yet again for going after President Donald Trump.
During a segment on “Fox and Friends,” co-host Jedediah Bila said Trump has a “responsibility” to concede the election to Joe Biden.
“With great power comes great responsibility to say ‘You know what, in the process is done. This is the verdict. Let’s move on,’” Bila said. “That’s going to be up to him. A lot of supporters look to him for that guidance, (and) I think they’re reacting that way because of what he is saying.”
Bila’s comments came as a number of Trump’s lawyers and surrogates continue to wage legal battle in several key swing states in which they allege widespread fraud took place. The fraud, they claim, robbed Trump of a second term in the White House.
But that didn’t stop Bila from criticizing that process, as she insisted that Trump’s lawyers, so far, have failed to bring about the necessary evidence that would change the outcomes of any states that Trump lost.
“There hasn’t been anything brought forth in court that has shown otherwise,” Bila said.
“(With) everything brought to the table, is a large segment of the population going to believe it was simply stolen or rigged simply because the president is saying so? So at some point, it’s gonna be incumbent upon him. It’s gonna fall on him,” Bila added while talking about recent polls that show a large number of voters believe that the election was stolen from Trump.
Bila’s comments come in the wake of similar comments made by Fox News primetime host Laura Ingraham, who said during a recent show that it’s time to live in “reality,” while refusing to sell “false hope” to Trump supporters given the lack of meaningful evidence presented so far in Trump’s legal cases.
Fox News has abandoned its conservative base and gone all-in for Biden.
Last week, Fox News White House correspondent Kristin Fisher reacted to Rudy Giuliani’s press conference alleging fraud in the 2020 election results and basically called him a liar.
Prior to that, Fox News host Leland Vittert got into a heated exchange with Erin Perrine, a spokeswoman for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign.
Vittert was beyond rude to Perrine, telling her to “keep smirking and rolling your eyes” during the off-the-rails interview.
The network has decided to part ways with contributor John Solomon.
Fox News host Sandra Smith is under heavy fire after getting caught on video making faces as a guest argued that the election was over just because the media called it.
Fox anchor Neil Cavuto came under fire recently after he abruptly cut away from campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany while she was speaking about alleged voter fraud in the election.
