Fox News host Peter Hegseth blew up at one his guests on Friday who merely suggested that there are many Americans who believe President Donald Trump has paid for multiple abortions during his years as a ladies man.
Filling in for host Laura Ingraham, the Fox & Friends weekend regular was discussing Trump’s decision to slash funding for Planned Parenthood with conservative columnist Kristin Tate and Democratic strategist Jehmu Greene — arguing over women should be able to receive an perfectly legal abortion “on the taxpayer’s dime,” which Greene disputed.
That was when things went off the rails.
“I think that what’s outrageous here is that no one would be surprised if President Trump himself hadn’t personally funded multiple abortions,” Greene said.
“Do you have evidence of that?” Hegseth exclaimed.
“No, I have no evidence,” Greene responded. “But—”
“Hold on, hold on! You’re just tossing that out!” Hegseth shouted as he cut her off. “So we don’t need evidence for those types of claims?”
“Jehmu, how could you say that on national television with no evidence?” Tate jumped in before adding “This is so irresponsible.”
“I’m just saying no one would be surprised,” Greene shot back. “Would you be surprised, Kristin?”
“Jehmu, stop spreading misinformation!” the frantic Tate exclaimed. “This is ridiculous.”

CNN’s Anderson Cooper demolishes Trump’s Google/Clinton conspiracy theory: He’s on ‘one of his favorite hobby horses’
On Monday, CNN's Anderson Cooper walked viewers through President Donald Trump's latest theory about Google committing voter fraud on behalf of Democrats.
"I want to play you this clip from yesterday, because of how well it shows where his head still seems to be nearly three years after election night," said Cooper. "It was in response to a question about banning high-capacity magazines. First, he quickly changed the subject to mental health, and then, well, take a look."
"The concept of mental institution has to be looked at," said Trump in the clip. "Unrelated to that, I believe that the concept also of voter identification has to be looked at because you can't have great security for the voter. People that vote, you can't have that national security unless you can have voter identification. It's something people have to look at very strongly."
