‘Fox And Friends’ Host ‘Forced To Watch CNN’ At Airport Calls Don Lemon A ‘Moron’

“Fox and Friends” weekend co-host Pete Hegseth vented about being “forced” to watch CNN while he was at the airport on Tuesday evening and raged against CNN host Don Lemon in a tweet, calling him a “moron” who spews “liberal orthodoxy.” And, since I’m at the airport, I’m forced to watch @CNN. So clear—@donlemon really is a moron (who elites pretend is smart and insightful). Nothing he says is interesting—all liberal orthodoxy. #FakeNews — Pete Hegseth (@PeteHegseth) December 5, 2018 Hegse...

Fox Host: Kim Probably Hates That ‘He Has To Murder His People’

Fox News host Pete Hegseth said Wednesday that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un “probably” wants to meet with President Donald Trump because he “doesn’t love to be the guy who has to murder his people all day.” The eyebrow raising suggestion was made after “Fox and Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked Hegseth why Kim had agreed to meet and discuss denuclearization with Trump. At first, Hegseth offered that Kim “wants a picture with the American president” and is likely weary of the econom...

Fox Host Argues Stormy Daniels Payment Was Legal, Using Some Shoddy Logic

“Fox and Friends” weekend host Pete Hegseth claimed Thursday that Michael Cohen’s $130,000 hush money payment to Stormy Daniels in 2016 was not illegal, even if it was a campaign expenditure. But his reasoning didn’t make any legal sense. “They’re clearing up a ‘gotcha’ moment for legal reasons,” Hegseth told Fox Business host Stuart Varney, referring to the payment that Giuliani admitted was made to protect Trump’s presidential campaign from scandal. “It wasn’t campaign funds,” Hegseth continue...

Conway: If I Were Killed, 'Half of Twitter Would Explode In Applause'

White House aide Kellyanne Conway urged reflection on Friday about the coarseness of political rhetoric in the aftermath of the shooting at a Republican congressional baseball team practice. Though Conway emphasized repeatedly in an interview with “Fox & Friends” Friday that “ nobody is responsible for this shooting except the shooter,” she spent most of her remarks on the incident singling out Democrats and the media for their “hateful” rhetoric regarding President Donald Trump and other Repu...

Fox Hosts Use Debunked Recidivism Statistic To Smear Obama's Plan To Close Guantanamo Bay Prison

From the February 24 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends: STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Some of these guys after they're released from Gitmo want to stay there because it's so much better than it is back where they want to send them. You returned from Gitmo. PETE HEGSETH: Yeah, I was there as a guard in 2004 and 2005.

Fox's Pete Hegseth hyped Islamophobic fears about Hamtramck, Michigan, the U.S.'s first Muslim-majority city, asking residents whether the mosques in the city "raise an eyebrow." Hegseth also hyped fears over the "integration" of Muslims and invoked the December 2015 San Bernardino, CA mass shooting -- implying a likeness between the shooting and the Michigan city, saying "Obviously, San Bernardino, there are fears, there have been over 120 arrests of ISIS members in the United States, is there ...

Fox Contributor On Obama's First Visit To A US Mosque: He May Be Purposefully Visiting One With "Ties To A More Extreme Form Of Islam"

From the February 3 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends: PETE HEGSETH: It appears [the White House] chose this mosque on purpose. For one of two reasons -- they have got to know, it has ties to a more extreme form of Islam or at least a more fundamentalist form. But it also could be that they say, we're not going to see those distinctions. This White House is saying, it doesn't matter, a mosque is a mosque, an imam is an imam. If they don't have direct ties to terrorism, then we're apart of showi...
