Fox's Kilmeade: It's “inaccurate” to label Trump a racist for his racist tweets targeting women of color

From the July 16 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): [Rush Limbaugh] just outlined what they said, the severe comments, the laughing off Al Qaeda's role as an enemy of our country. Talking about Israel and the benjamins and talk about I'm going to beat his bleeping, blanking whatever from another one. And what one of these congresswomen from Massachusetts said at Netroots. But what gets Republicans on the defensive and what really foments race, is when he talks about going home and going back to your country. Then all of a sudden people say, wait, wait a second that's electric language, what does he mean by that? And then they're able to label the president in a way which I think is inaccurate. And that's why Will Hurd, Mitt Romney, and Tim Scott, Republicans, came out and condemned the words. Not yet -- not what they said, but how the president characterized it. 

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Right. The president doubled down, he said love it or leave it. If you don't like it, then go back to your country and fix it. The Democrats took offense to that, said it was racist.
