Fox News guests Diamond & Silk say it was 'racially insensitive' for Democrat Steve Cohen to mock Barr with fried chicken

Rep. Steve Cohen's (D-Tenn.) chicken-themed antics at Attorney General William Barr's no-show House testimony on Thursday was so over-the-top that Stephen Colbert's Late Show kicked off Thursday night's show by poking fun at him.

Friday morning's Fox & Friends hosts mocked Cohen a little harder, focusing on his KFC breakfast — Barr was "chicken" for not showing up to face Democrats' questions — but when they asked contributors Diamond & Silk for their reaction, things got a little ... strange.
