Two hosts on Fox and Friends have a heated moment when they compare the incident at the Capitol with the protests and riots from Portland that happened during the summer of 2020. Some of the conversation went like this:
"Brian, you're talking about people who work in the Congress," co-host Steve Doocy said on Wednesday morning in the exchange with co-host Brian Kilmeade. "The Congress was under attack last week it was looted. There was a riot."
Kilmeade interjected, saying, "So was Portland every day and nobody cared on the left. Those people have lives, too. Just because they don't have medallions to go through metal detectors every day. All the state houses and the police houses that were ransacked and nobody cared."

Doocy responded: "I don't think what they were doing in Portland was trying to overthrow the democracy."
Kilmeade shot back, "Well they would if they could."
Doocy said "he gets it" and there "is some equivalency if you look at the fact that they were both attacks and they were both protests" before acknowledging "the president is the one who said come to Washington and let's have this big thing it's gonna be wild. And it was wild."
