National security adviser John Bolton and senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump faced a cacophony of jeers as they exited 10 Downing Street in London on Tuesday, which prompted an explanation from Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade.
Kilmeade jumped to the defense of the first daughter, telling viewers “that’s not for Ivanka it’s for John Bolton, and he loves it.” He added, “He’s pretty much looked at as the ‘tough guy’ in that administration and he loves that label.”
Ivanka Trump emerged from the U.K. government headquarters, followed by the national security adviser. The crowd started booing almost immediately, making it difficult to make out if the jeers were directed at only one of them or at both.
Viewers on Twitter were surprised that Kilmeade was able to make the distinction:
Nice that Kilmeade could determine who the boos were directed toward. Fox made sure its viewers didn't have their precious world rocked by exposure to scorn for Princess Ivanka.

The boos started when Ivanka emerged - Bolton was a few steps behind her still unexposed.

HOW does this reporter KNOW those boos were NOT for Ivanka??? Seems to me they weren't designated. No one said "Boo Bolton" or "We love you Ivanka!" https://t.co/AiSrhHDiLV

Others agreed with Kilmeade that the scorn was directed at Bolton:
More likely they were booing the war monger Bolton.

As much as I don't like her my guess is they were booing Bolton.
