PETE HEGSETH (CO-HOST): When you talk to Trump supporters, who I talk to on a regular basis, there is a feeling that for the most part this was a protest that got out of hand, as Jesse talked about. They heard the president speak. He talked about being peaceful and patriotic. There was a lot of frustration on the ground that day. I was there covering it for Fox & Friends. But overwhelmingly what you didn't see from that crowd or the words from the president, was insurrection or incitement to violence. 

What happened, happened. We can talk about it and deal with it. But if the left -- the left never misses an opportunity, never, to try to use a moment to crush their political opponents. They see this as the moment to do that to Trump and of course the RINOs on the right, I mean there's not a Republican out there that's looking to go back to the years of Bush/Cheney, at least those 75 million that supported President Trump.
