Liberal comedians harass ‘Fox & Friends’ personality Brian Kilmeade on New York City streets

Two men harassed and stalked Fox & Friends personality Brian Kilmeade through the streets of New York City on Friday.
In a since-deleted video, self-described “comedians” Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler followed Kilmeade on to the subway and heckled him for supporting President Donald Trump. Since then, several colleagues of Kilmeade’s have come to his defense, including former Fox personality Megyn Kelly.
Kilmeade harassed by leftist comedians
The video started off with Selvig asking Kilmeade for a selfie, only to pounce on the Fox star with accusations of sexually harassing former Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson, who has never raised any such allegation against Kilmeade. The comedians then stalked Kilmeade through the streets of Midtown and onto the subway, where they began encouraging other riders to heckle him.
“Hey everyone, this is Brian Kilmeade, he says lots of weird, kinda racist-y stuff on the news a lot,” Stiefler shouted as Selvig and Kilmeade stood next to him. “This is the closest personal adviser to Donald Trump, the Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade. If you have anything you want Donald Trump to say or do, tell this guy cause he’s the only person in America that Donald Trump listens to.”
Some riders responded to the prompt to harass Kilmeade, one even shouting: “Stop grabbing p***y!”
Kilmeade ignored the hecklers throughout the video, instead choosing to talk on his cell phone. The comedians then followed Kilmeade off the subway and into a Jamba Juice where they jokingly offered him $10 to tell Trump to resign.
Deleted after pushback
The comedians took the video down on Sunday night after facing heavy push-back from viewers and colleagues of Kilmeade who slammed the comedians for harassing the host and encouraging others to do the same.
“This is so maddening,” former Fox and Friends co-host Abby Huntsman said. “No one should endure this harassment, especially someone as kind and wonderful as [Kilmeade].”
Fox News’ head meteorologist Janice Dean and former Fox anchor Megyn Kelly also came to Kilmeade’s defense.
My friend @kilmeade was harassed in the nyc subway yesterday. He is one of the nicest people I know. Where do we draw the line? Why do people think they’re above the law? Can you imagine if this was a @CNN or @MSNBC host or a woman? It’s outrageous, sick and dangerous.

Totally agree – @kilmeade is one of the nicest guys in this industry. A great dad, friend and anchor. Just please stop.

The video came amid an uptick in mob harassment from the left against conservatives over the nomination and confirmation of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. There have been numerous threats of violence against Republican lawmakers and their families in the last several days, and some senators have even had their phone numbers and home addresses shared online.
The left is simply out of control.
