“I think it’s terrible for every military family and Gold Star family in this country to watch and listen to any of this,” panelist and Real Clear Politics columnist A.B. Stoddard said. “It’s extremely upsetting and it’s offensive.”
“President Trump started this on Monday,” Stoddard said. “He might have stumbled over his words and said the wrong thing [on Monday]. What he did today made it a lot worse. He has a terrible record on Gold Star families. He needs to spare this one group of people.”
Host Bret Baier responded: “All of it is horrific. We have to cover it because it’s news, but it’s bad.”
