National Security Adviser John Bolton and White House adviser and first daughter Ivanka Trump were met with loud boos by British protesters when they emerged from 10 Downing Street and made their way across a London street to the news conference, Vox reported on Tuesday.
Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade attempted to spin the boos which aired live on the network, saying, “it’s not for Ivanka — it’s for John Bolton, and he loves it.”
“He pretty much is looked at as somebody, as the tough guy in that administration,” Kilmeade continued. “And he loves that label.”
WOW — huge boos for Ivanka and John Bolton when they emerge for the news conference!

As Vox notes:
The moment illustrated how automatic it has become for Fox News presenters to protect Trump and his family. Trump traveled to Britain, where his approval rating is 21 percent, with four of his children — Ivanka, Eric, Don Jr., and Tiffany — even though Ivanka is the only one who works in the White House and Eric and Don Jr. are supposed to be staying out of politics while they run the family business that Trump still owns and profits from.
