Houston Reporter Who Prayed for Trump to Win Out at Station

By Kevin Eck 

KRIV reporter Scarlett Fakhar no longer works at the Houston Fox-owned station.

Houston media blogger Mike McGuff writes that a station spokesperson confirmed the news today.

Fakhar recently apologized after FTVLive first reported she posted her support for Donald Trump on her Facebook page.


“I prayed for the best leader that will turn this country that has become more violent and racist under the Obama administration that ever…into the America I once knew,” she wrote in part about Trump’s election.

She’s worked at the station since 2015.
