From the October 29 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I mean, this is so unbelievable that we had the bomber trauma last week with -- we didn't know where these mail bombs were coming from, and thankfully there was no blasting material in it. We find that guy and he is a Trump supporter, but he had a criminal record dating back to 2002 when Donald Trump was hosting The Apprentice. Now, to think that the president could somehow be linked to this, you have to suspend disbelief, especially when he has great links to the Jewish community, at home and abroad. He has a daughter who converted, a son-in-law who's playing a key role in his administration playing -- who means so much to him at his right hand, and then you have a situation where you have this person happened to hate Donald Trump. 

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): How about blaming the guy who did this?

...

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): This shooter hated Donald Trump. Thought he was a globalist, didn't vote for him, and never, apparently, ever owned a MAGA cap.
