Hey, Sean Hannity, make room for colleague Harris Faulkner. Pro-Trump shilling during the daytime at Fox News is approaching your level of eagerness.

Background: Over the weekend, many critics lashed out at President Trump for his weak and vague response to the violence in Charlottesville that erupted amid a demonstration by white nationalists and neo-Nazis. As Politico noted, the dissenters included not only moderate Republicans — Sens. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Marco Rubio of Florida, for example — but also Sens. Orrin Hatch of Utah and Cory Gardner of Colorado.

The point being that Trump’s lameness on Charlottesville motivated a larger crowd of critics than the usual suspects.

Yet Faulkner, co-host of noontime Fox News program “Outnumbered,” had had it. “I would say this about President Trump’s critics as a whole: If nothing will quiet them, then they don’t have America in their sights. They don’t care about us. They don’t care about Americans and shame on them. And they need to step aside and let justice be done,” she said.

More: “If the critics out there can’t accept anything ever, ever, ever, they’re not on our side as Americans. Shame on them.”

Precious words from a network that pursued precisely that approach — not accepting anything ever, ever, ever — with Trump’s predecessor.
