After declining to air the first January 6 Committee hearing, Fox News covered it with a special Fox News at Night With Shannon Bream featuring anchors Martha McCallum and Bret Baier. At the hearing, the committee played video of former Attorney General Bill Barr’s testimony, later followed by video of Ivanka Trump’s testimony. In his testimony, Barr said that he told former President Trump that there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud, and that the former president’s claims were “bulls***.” The committee aired only a small portion of Ivanka’s testimony, but in it, she is shown agreeing with Barr and contradicting her father.

“How did that affect your perspective about the election when Attorney General Barr made that statement?” Ivanka was asked. “It affected my perspective,” she replied. “I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accepted what he was saying.”

“I think that was sort of part of them laying that out and establishing that he (Trump) was on his own on that thinking,” McCallum said. “But, you know, on the second time watching that from Ivanka Trump, it strikes me she was put in a very difficult position. Essentially, what she’s saying there is, ‘I believed what Bill Barr said over what my father was saying.’ And that is — it could not have been a very easy moment for her.”

That’s when Baier cut in, joking that Ivanka’s testimony could make things a little weird at Thanksgiving.

“Makes Thanksgiving a little tough,” Baier said, laughing. McCallum replied, “It makes Thanksgiving a little tricky.” “Could be a little bit awkward,” Bream added. “Father’s Day is coming up. We’ll see how that goes.”

Fox News at Night With Martha McCallum airs weeknights at 11 p.m. on Fox News Channel.
