“Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's statements about President Trump's acquittal and her disapproval of his State of the Union address qualified as “emotionally losing it.”

The big picture: Since Trump's State of the Union, Pelosi accused him of using Congress as a "backdrop for a reality show." After the speech on Tuesday, the House speaker was also seen ripping a copy of the president's transcript for the evening.

  • Trump punched back at Pelosi on Thursday, insinuating she used her faith as a false justification for impeachment.

What he's saying:

"Compare Mitch McConnell — you could say the worst thing to Mitch McConnell, and if you're Donald Trump, it doesn't phase him. Everyone makes fun of him. ... He keeps his eye on the objective. Nancy Pelosi is letting the emotion get the best of her. And I don't want to get into gender, it has nothing to do with gender. ... But she's emotionally losing it"
— Brian Kilmeade

Facebook goes after Apple

Facebook is seeking to force a face-off with Apple over its 30% in-app purchase commission fee, which Facebook suggests hurts small businesses struggling to get by during the pandemic.

The big picture: Facebook has never publicly gone after Apple, a key strategic partner, this aggressively. Both companies face antitrust scrutiny, which in Apple's case has centered on the very fee structure Facebook is now attacking.
