The attack on the conservative networkâ€™s â€œAll-American Christmas Treeâ€ early Wednesday was a â€œserious incident,â€ Keilar acknowledged on Thursdayâ€™s broadcast of â€œNew Day.â€
â€œObviously, itâ€™s incredibly scary to feel your workplace is under attack unlessâ€¦ your workplace is the Capitol, then according to many, many Fox hosts itâ€™s not such a big deal,â€ she said.
Keilar aired one montage of Fox personalities politicizing their destroyed tree, then another of them downplaying the deadly violence on Jan. 6.
â€œAt Fox, when the target is a Christmas tree at their workplace, it is a sacrilege but when the target is the seat of American democracy, itâ€™s not,â€ she said.
â€œJust imagine if Fox hosts could muster, for an armed attack on the Capitol, the same outrage that they did for their Christmas tree,â€ Keilar added. â€œPerhaps some of the almost half of Republicans who think Jan. 6 was a legitimate protest might actually see it for what it really was.â€
