Fox & Friends host Pete Hegseth says he hasn't washed his hands in 10 years



On Fox & Friends over the weekend Pete Hegseth told his co-hosts he had not washed his hands in 10 years. He starts off by saying to his co-hosts, “My 2019 resolution is to say things on-air that I say off-air. I don't think I've washed my hands for 10 years.”

As co-hosts Henry and Bila laugh, Hegseth continues, “I inoculate myself. Germs are not a real thing. I can't see them; therefore, they're not real.” Naturally, Twitter exploded in disgust. But Hegseth thought it was clear he was merely joking as did his co-hosts. Hegseth goes on to tell USA Today that his joke was aimed at germaphobes who need to lighten up.

“My half-hearted commentary to the point is, we live in a society where people walk around with bottles of Purell in their pockets, and they sanitize 19,000 times a day as if that’s going to save their life. I take care of myself and all that, but I don’t obsess over everything all the time.”

Thanks to hjalmartazar. :)

ONTD, do you wash your hands?
