Brian Kilmeade Explains Ray Rice Joke

By Chris Ariens 

This morning on “Fox & Friends” Brian Kilmeade said a bad joke he made yesterday while discussing the video of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking his fiancee — now wife — unconscious in an Atlantic City elevator, was not meant to take the situation lightly.

After playing the video, obtained by TMZ, Kilmeade said, “The message here is to take the stairs.” Steve Doocy didn’t help much when he added, “The message is: when you’re in an elevator, there’s a camera.”

This morning, Kilmeade explained, “Comments that we made during this story yesterday made some feel like we were taking the situation too lightly. We are not. We were not. Domestic abuse is a very serious issue to us, I can assure you.”
