A Fox News segment exploded Thursday when network contributor Jessica Tarlov defended Hillary Clinton and suggested that former President Donald Trump's alleged mishandling of classified information is worse than Clinton's.

Trump is alleged to have stored classified documents at Mar-a-Lago — even nuclear documents — though authorities have not alleged that Trump has committed any wrongdoing.

On the other hand, Clinton's use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state involved sending, receiving, and storing classified information in and through improper channels. Clinton was never prosecuted for her mishandling of classified information.

What happened?

During a discussion between Tarlov and Sean Duffy on Fox News, Tarlov, a Democratic strategist, said the knee-jerk response from Republicans to defend Trump after the FBI raid demonstrates why they are "unfit" to lead America and control the government.

After Duffy responded that Trump is not being treated "fair," Tarlov zeroed in on Duffy's acknowledgment that the government is "now going after [Trump for] classified documents."

"Yes, sir, it is about classified information," Tarlov shot back. "It is breaking the law — it matters."

When Duffy then turned the conversation to Clinton and her mishandling of classified information, the conservation went completely off the rails.

"Jessica, hold on a second. He has documents, papers in boxes. The Chinese and the Russians can’t access those boxes of information. But Hillary Clinton’s server is public to the world," Duffy said.

"Guess what: She was punished!" Tarlov interjected. "She lost the election!"

"No, she wasn’t punished," Duffy fired back. "Did they raid her home? Did they come with machine guns to her home?"

"They didn’t need to because she cooperated like a normal human being," Tarlov responded.

"No, she did not cooperate," Duffy corrected.

Anything else?

To a point that Tarlov made, Trump signed a law as president to toughen the penalty against former government officials who retain or remove classified information.

The crime is now a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

However, apart from conjecture from government sources, law enforcement officials have not confirmed that Trump retained classified documents at Mar-a-Lago.
