"Where's the outrage over Jimmy Kimmel making fun of Melania Trump's accent?" asked co-host Ainsley Earhardt. "If he had done this to Michelle Obama ... all the mainstream media would have him on there, if he were conservative, saying he's a racist."

"Imagine if we moved to another country and we had to learn that language; it would be so daunting," Earhardt continued during Thursday morning's show. "She not only speaks five languages, she's reading different languages too. That's not easy. I took a foreign language and I never really got it. It's so difficult to do that. Shouldn't she be praised?"
"Melania also broke barriers. She is the first immigrant First Lady since the early 1800s," Campos-Duffy said, adding that liberals "only like a certain type of immigrant: the ones they can use to advance their ideological agenda, the ones they can use to gain political power." The conservative personality added that since Melania doesn't fit that bill, "They have no use for [her]."
She told Earheardt, "I think it's about time for Barack and Michelle Obama, who still have considerable sway over their friends in Hollywood, to tell [them], 'Hey, back off!'"
