Fox News' Kilmeade says he showed judge's meme 'in jest'

NEW YORK (AP) — Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade says he showed a doctored photo of the judge who signed the warrant approving the FBI search warrant of former President Donald Trump’s estate “in jest.” The altered photo of Jeffrey Epstein and his girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell replaced Epstein with an image of U.S. Magistrate Bruce Reinhart. Maxwell was rubbing Epstein’s foot in the original image. Fox’s Sean Hannity appeared to correct Kilmeade on-air, who was subbing for Tucker Carlson. In a tweet on Friday, Kilmeade said he wanted to make it clear that the photo was being shown ‘in jest.’
