Thursday morning, Fox & Friends hosts Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt claimed that wearing glasses is a sign of “brain damage and other things.”
Although this conspiracy theory has been proven false and condemned by most journalists, Fox News continues to spread the controversial hearsay in an effort to boost support for the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Doocy and Earhardt referred to Dr. Drew Pinsky, who recently said he was “gravely concerned” about Hillary Clinton’s health on his radio program.
“And what he said on the radio yesterday,” Doocy began. “Is that the fact that when we saw Hillary Clinton wearing those prism glasses, a sign of brain damage and other things, and he’s worried about the care she’s getting so far.”
Brian Kilmeade pointed out to that during the Benghazi hearing, Clinton wore glasses instead of contacts. “And if you want to — or remember, when she was wearing those glasses, remember when she made those famous line to Senator Ron Johnson, ‘What difference at this point does it make,’ that’s when she had those glasses on.”
