The hosts of Fox & Friends on Tuesday brought on Lou Ferrigno, the body builder who played “The Incredible Hulk” in the 1970s television series, for some expert analysis on whether NSA leaker Edwards Snowden was a “hero or villain.”
“He played one of the most recognizable super heroes,” Fox News host Steve Doocy explained. “We’re talking about ‘The Incredible Hulk.’ Lou Ferrigno’s transformation put a memorable face on the conflicted character, leaving viewers wondering if he was a hero or if he was an evil villain.”
“Proving truth is stranger than fiction, the emergence of the NSA leaker, Edward Snowden, has many wondering if his disclosure of government surveillance programs make him patriot or a traitor,” co-host Brian Kilmeade added.
“So, how does The Incredible Hulk see it?” co-host Gretchen Carlson asked Ferrigno.
“First of all, he must be having good Chinese food,” Ferrigno joked, noting that Snowed had fled to Hong Kong. “I would say it’s a flipped coin… I think leaking information was wrong, I think talking about the situation — I think he did commit a crime.”
“People see him as either a hero or a traitor. But like I said, it’s a flipped coin.”
