Fox News host Pete Hegseth on Sunday sharply disapproved of a Saturday Night Live comedy sketch that mocked a meeting between President Donald Trump and Kanye West.
“They use comedy to push an agenda,” Hegseth complained after reviewing the SNL clip. “If you support this president you are either crazy or you’re racist. Those are the two boxes! So, Kanye can’t be racist, then he’s got to be crazy.”
“And then they throw [Kanye’s] mental health into it,” he continued. “When it’s an issue they take seriously all day long until it’s about time to make fun of someone whose being open, earnest and honest with the president of the United States in the Oval Office.”
According to the Fox News host, Kanye “made a lot of poignant and important points” during his visit to the White House.
Hegeseth, however, admitted that he laughed at the skit “because it was kind of funny.”
“Your point about crazy or racist is well taken,” co-host Trish Regan agreed. “That is exactly the box. It’s not just SNL, that is the box the media puts everyone in too.”
“Oh, I forgot dumb,” she added. “You are either crazy, racist or dumb.”

MSNBC guest goes off on Chris Matthews for comparing Sanders to Nazis: ‘He had kin murdered in the Holocaust’
Time magazine editor Anand Giridharadas criticized MSNBC host Chris Matthews over the weekend for his alleged bias against Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Giridharadas remarks came after Matthews compared Sanders' win in Nevada to a Nazi invasion.
"Last night was a historic win that I think a lot of us are still struggling to understand," Giridharadas explained. "It's historic because we may be seeing that we are paddling through a bend of a river in history here. Something is happening in America right now that actually does not fit our mental models."
‘Kiss Florida goodbye’: Voto Latino head warns Democrats of coming 2020 debacle
Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.
During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.
"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."
CNN’s Bakari Sellers schools Rick Santorum over claim Trump is not part of the ‘extreme hard right’
During a panel discussion on CNN's State of the Union, contributor Bakari Sellers set fellow panelist Rick Santorum straight after he tried to claim that Donald Trump doesn't take far-right positions.
Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."
