The anchors on Fox News and Friends were caught off-guard when they thought they were about to interview a Democrat who supports Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)‘s actions at the Mexico-US border. Instead they were greeted by Barbara L’Italien, a Democratic senator who is also running for Congress.
L’Italien slammed Donald Trump and the tactics used at the border, including separating children from their families.
Her live feed was stopped when they realised they had the wrong guest.
Fox had wanted to interview Ann Kirkpatrick, a former Democratic congresswoman. She later tweeted that Fox News inaccurately described her position on ICE, which she said needs ‘top-to-bottom reform’.
