Fox News’s Doocy says Ramaswamy was ’embarrassing’ during fourth debate

Fox News host Steve Doocy on Thursday knocked GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy for the way he handled himself during the fourth 2024 primary debate the previous night.

“Vivek was embarrassing. You know, he just came in too hot once again. He got booed a number of times,” Doocy said on “Fox and Friends.” “I would give Vivek Ramaswamy fourth place, only because he was the fourth person there.”

Doocy’s comments were first highlighted by Mediate.

During the at times fiery debate, which was hosted by The Hill’s sister news organization, NewsNation, Ramaswamy accused former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley of corruption, at one point holding up a legal pad with the words “NIKKI = CORRUPT” written on it, eliciting loud boos from the crowd in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Ramaswamy also sparred with former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, telling him at one point to get off the stage and “go enjoy a nice meal,” and rattled off a list of unproven theories about Jan. 6, climate change and immigration.

Ramaswamy trails behind Haley and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who themselves are behind by double digits to the GOP front-runner, former President Trump.
