Epic fail: Kids school ‘Fox & Friends’ hosts on basic math

Published

on

The hosts of Fox News’ morning show on Tuesday proved that many adults have poor math skills by failing a simple quiz from their own children in an epic way.

Fox & Friends hosts Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade noted that a recent study found that only about 5 percent of parents could help children with their math homework.

To find out if the study was true, the hosts used their own kids to quiz them on simple math questions.

Doocy started off well, answering the first question about multiplication correctly. Carlson literally scratched her head before picking wrong from the list of multiple-choice answers. Kilmeade declined to offer response.

The next question, however, did not go as well.

“Change 2.5 kilograms to grams,” Carlson’s daughter asked.

“Uh oh,” Carlson grimaced.

“I’m going to say ‘A’,” Kilmeade offered.

“I’m going to say ‘B’ because I have no idea,” Carlson said.

“I don’t think the answer is there,” Doocy shrugged. “A kilogram is a thousandth of a gram?”

After learning that the answer was ‘C’ — 2,500 grams — Kilmeade demanded a recount.

A question about finding 3 percent of $200,000 also stumped the trio. But in their defense, the correct answer was not offered in the list of choices.

“I’m confused,” Carlson said. “Come on, it’s 6,000!”

“There’s nobody even helping us in the control room,” Kilmeade complained. “During the Jeb Bush interview, I get all these helping from the control. I get nothing from them afterward because you guys don’t know it either!”

“Does somebody have a calculator on their phone?” Carlson asked.

Trump says militia that sought to kidnap and kill Michigan’s Gov. Whitmer was ‘maybe a problem, maybe it wasn’t’

Published

In a startling moment during his Michigan rally Tuesday, President Donald Trump implied that the militia that attempted to kidnap and kill Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) was maybe or maybe not all that big of a problem.

“People are entitled to say maybe it was a problem, maybe it wasn’t," Trump told his rally.

It's a commonly used tactic by Trump to say things like "people say" or "some say" or raise hypotheticals so that it gives him the ability to say "I don't think that, people do." But he has never been able to cite the actual person that said that to him.

In this case, one would assume all political leaders would oppose kidnapping and killing a political leader regardless of the party to which he or she belongs. In Ohio they've opted for a gentler approach, merely trying to recall Republican Gov. Mike DeWine for his mask mandate.

Trump’s closing argument to women: ‘We’re getting your husbands back to work’

Published

on

One week before the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump made his closing argument to women at a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan.

"I love women and I can't help it, they're the greatest," Trump said, four years after the Access Hollywood tape was released which showed him bragging about sexually assaulting strangers.

"I love them much more than the men," he added.

Trump also made an economic argument that sounded as dated as his talk about "suburban housewives."

"We're getting your husbands -- they want to get back to work, right? We're getting your husbands back to work," he argued.

Trump chants ‘COVID!’ ten times in a row after Obama slams him as ‘jealous’ of virus

Published

President Donald Trump on Tuesday again complained about the amount of media coverage being given to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump made the remarks at a campaign event in Lansing, Michigan, where he reminded supporters that he had been infected by the virus.

"I would like to give me full credit," the president said of his recovery. "I don't want to give the drug any credit. I want to say, because I am a very young person that's in perfect physical shape, I took that virus and I woke up the next morning and I felt like Superman."

Trump then motioned to members of the media at the event.
