"Fox & Friends" on Friday admiringly aired a government video showing a massive bomb being dropped in Afghanistan, with one host touting it as "what freedom looks like."

The U.S. military on Thursday dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb — the GBU-43 Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB), commonly called the "Mother of All Bombs" — onto a ISIS tunnel network in Afghanistan. 

Fox News's morning show on Friday aired the video of the bombing to the sounds of Toby Keith's “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue.” The country song, written in 2002 amid calls for military action after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, famously contains the line “We’ll put a boot in your ass, it’s the American way.”

Host Ainsley Earhardt referenced the song's lyrics, saying that even though the video is in black and white, “that’s what freedom looks like, that’s the red, white and blue."

Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera noted his joy at being able to see the video of the bomb.

"One of my favorite things in the 16 years I've been here at Fox News is watching bombs drop on bad guys," he said.

The MOAB is considered to be the most powerful non-nuclear bomb in the U.S. arsenal. It is also the most powerful bomb the U.S. has used in Afghanistan. 

Thursday's bombing killed up to 36 suspected ISIS militants, according to reports.
