The four hosts of Fox & Friends on Monday argued that Danny DeVito had been wrong to cite racism as one of the causes of this year’s all-white Oscar nominees.
While at the Sundance Film Festival last week, DeVito had lamented living in “a racist country.”
“We are living in a country that discriminates and has certain racist tendencies,” he said. “So sometimes it manifests in things like [Oscar nominations], and it’s illuminated. But just generally speaking, we’re a bunch of racists.”
On Monday, Fox News host Brian Kilmeade quipped to his three white co-hosts that DeVito “is only 4’11” and he knows what’s wrong with America.”
“Really?” Fox News’ Heather Nauert replied sarcastically after reading DeVito’s remarks.
“He can go to France, Canada,” Kilmeade suggested.
“I guess he forgot about cabinet secretaries being African-American,” Nauert snarked. “Oh, the president too.”
“That’s his opinion,” co-host Steve Doocy shrugged.

Trump spokesman slams ‘politicians using taxpayer funded jobs to try and benefit their family’
A spokesperson for President Donald Trump's campaign on Wednesday blasted politicians who use "taxpayer funded jobs to try and benefit their family."
During an interview on Fox News, Gidley made the remark in reference to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
"The corruption is now flowing into his family," Gidley opined. "And you see that. And I think the American people absolutely care about their politicians using taxpayer-funded jobs to try and benefit their families."
Although Gidley was referring to Biden's family, several commenters noted that the campaign aide could also have been talking about Trump's children.
The View’s Sunny Hostin calls out GOP voter suppression ‘shenanigans’: ‘Reeks of desperation’
"The View" co-host Sunny Hostin called out Republican "shenanigans" intended to suppress voter turnout.
The panelists discussed reports of President Donald Trump's supporters -- including one Miami police officer -- trying to intimidate voters and wreaking "havoc" outside polling stations, and Hostin said that doesn't show a lot of confidence.
"Well, it just seems to me that it reeks of desperation, but primarily from the Republican Party," Hostin said. "All of the shenanigans that seem to be coming up, you know, are the Republican Party trying to limit the number of polling stations, the Republican Party in California putting out these sort of dummy ballot boxes."
WATCH: Comedy legend Mel Brooks makes his first-ever political video to endorse Joe Biden
Mel Brooks, the legendary writer and director behind comedy classics such as "The Producers," "Blazing Saddles," and "Young Frankenstein," endorsed Joe Biden for president.
In a video posted by his son, bestselling author Max Brooks, Mel explained to viewers why he was making his first-ever video political endorsement.
The video starts with the 94-year-old Brooks pointing to his son and grandson standing behind him behind a glass door.
"They can't be with me," he explained. "Why? Because of this coronavirus! And Donald Trump's not doing a damn thing about it."
He then said that he believed Biden would do a better job of containing the virus and would help America get back to normal sooner than the current president.
