Fox News host Brian Kilmeade celebrated Back to the Future Day on Wednesday by accidentally locking himself inside of the show’s iconic Delorean — and not even Huey Lewis could save him.
Through out the morning on Fox & Friends, stars like Lea Thompson showed up to mark the date that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to in Back to the Future II.
For the final segment of the show, Kilmeade dressed up as McFly for an interview with Lewis, who sang the title track for the first movie.
“Where’s Brian?” Lewis asked during what was apparently a staged plan for Kilmeade to emerge from the Delorean dressed as McFly. But when Lewis tried to open the door, it wouldn’t budge.
“He locked the door?” co-host Steve Doocy gasped.
“We rehearsed this,” Lewis noted, throwing up his hands.
“Try it again,” Doocy said.
“Just hit the Flux Capacitor and I’m sure something will happen,” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck offered.
“Just stick your face out,” Doocy suggested.
Several seconds later Kilmeade managed to free himself.
“Do I look as sexy as I feel?” the host asked.
“Uh, no,” Lewis replied.

A Republican witness gets humiliated when the author of a study he cited refutes him
During a hearing on Thursday, September 17, Bharat Ramamurti of the Congressional Oversight Commission questioned Republican Chris Edwards on the benefits of federal aid to states. Edwards, during the hearing, questioned the benefits of that type of aid. But Ramamurti skillfully used a study that Edwards cited to make a case in favor of federal aid to states — not against it.
Ramamurti, a Democrat who was appointed to the Congressional Oversight Commission by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer earlier this year, noted that Edwards has claimed that a 2019 study by economics professor Valerie Rainey of the University of California shows that a dollar of federal aid to states results in less than a dollar of economic growth. And Edwards responded that yes, Rainey’s study did show that.
‘Loony’ Bill Barr is the ‘second most dangerous man in America’: WaPo columnist Eugene Robinson
Discussing comments made by Bill Barr this past week on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Friday morning, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson called the attorney general "loony" after calling the AG the "second most dangerous man in America."
With host Joe Scarborough pointing out that Donald Trump attacked his own FBI director again this week, Robinson was asked to explain what is going on with the Justice Department.
"Historically, obviously, as you know, and as everyone knows, the FBI director is given an amount of autonomy and authority to do what he needs to do in the service of American justice and is thought to be immune from the sort of political interference," he began. "At least that's the theory, that was what we tried to do from the end of J. Edgar Hoover's tenure to now and it started at the beginning of Donald Trump's term when he got rid of Jim Comey because he wouldn't do his political bidding. So this is nothing new for Donald Trump."
Bill Barr’s friends aren’t sure if he’s just a liar or delusional: ‘He’s been substantially influenced by right-wing media’
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough wondered what Attorney General William Barr's friends thought of his transformation into a right-wing crank.
The "Morning Joe" host said the attorney general has become the president's personal fixer -- as Trump attorneys Roy Cohn and Michael Cohen once had done -- and embraced conspiracy theories aimed at undermining the election, and Scarborough wondered what happened to the once-respected lawyer.
"He has all the money he wants," Scarborough said. "What do you think, what do some of his friends, former friends think about this guy who has savaged his reputation, lies willfully for the president of the United States, and sounds more like a bizarre right-wing blogger than the attorney general of the United States?"
