Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade said Friday, based on no evidence, that he just "senses" that the protesters outside of fellow host Tucker Carlson's house Wednesday evening were being paid. "It was a threat", said Carlson, who is often denounced by critics, particularly liberal critics, for inflammatory rhetoric about immigrants and minorities on his Fox News show.
