“Fox & Friends” on Friday devoted an entire segment to a new issue of the Hollywood Reporter that features the cast of HBO’s “Silicon Valley” alongside the caption, “Triumph of the beta males.”
The Fox show invited cowboy hat-wearing comedian Chad Prather on to attack the notion that it was okay to be a “beta male” — and he suggested that the magazine cover was part of a broader war against masculinity.
“Where is culture going at this point?” he asked. “Why is there such a war on masculinity? I mean, the worst thing you can be today in America is a white, heterosexual, Christian male. I mean, there’s an all-out war on people.”
Host Rachel Campos-Duffy then informed Prather that her husband, Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) used to be a lumberjack.
“I don’t think women really like that beta male thing,” she said.
“They don’t!” Prather replied. “You know what women like? They like men. They like men that are men. They like men that are confident in being men. And I’m giving you permission right now, America — be masculine!”
Prather then lamented that boys today feel inhibited about burping and scratching themselves.
“It’s okay, boys,” he said. “Burp and scratch yourselves!”

Tongue-tied GOP strategist crashes and burns on-air while trying to deny Trump’s racism
Republican strategist Amy Tarkanian crashed and burned on CNN on Saturday while attempting to deny President Donald Trump's racism.
"I do not believe that the president’s tweets were racist. I do believe they were not well thought out. He needs that extra, 'Are you sure?' button on Twitter," Tarkanian argued.
"I'm a black man, I'm a Republican and a black man," the Rev. Joe Watkins interjected. "My mother's an immigrant, I would be angry if someone said that to my mother."
"Oh, it’s very offensive. But he did not say, because you are this color, go back to where you came from," Tarkanian argued. "I’m not supporting that tweet. Was it racist? No. Was it stupid? Yes."
Trump supporter blames Democrats for being targeted by the president: ‘Why is that racist?’
CNN interviewed a supporter of President Donald Trump in Eau Claire, Wisconsin who refused to acknowledge the racism in the president's "Go Back" attacks on four women of color in Congress.
The network interviewed Kerri Krumenauer of Wiersgalla Plumbing & Heating Company about Trump's attacks.
"How is it racist?" she asked.
"If you don't like this country, get out," she demanded. "Leave!"
She then showed how misinformed she was about the incident.
"He didn't use any names -- they stood up," she falsely claimed. In fact, Trump did use names and the targets did not stand up as they were not at his North Carolina campaign rally.
Here’s how Trump hopes to recreate his 2016 presidential win — and how Democrats can send him packing
Writing for CNN on Saturday, election forecaster Harry Enten explained how President Donald Trump's recent, racist behavior lies in his desire to recreate the same electoral conditions that gave him a victory in 2016 in the presidential election next year.
"The Trump strategy is pretty simple: 1. Drive up the unfavorable ratings of his Democratic rival as he did in 2016 in order to compensate for his own low ratings. 2. Bank on an electoral college/popular vote split as he did in 2016. 3. Use a campaign of racial resentment to drive up turnout even more among groups favorable toward the President," wrote Enten. As he noted, Democrats have excellent odds to flip back Michigan and Pennsylvania, but they will have to work harder to win back any of the other states Trump flipped from the 2012 Obama camp — in particular Wisconsin, which was the closest state after those two.
