Pete Hegseth interviews Fox News fans in Indiana diner (Fox News)

A “Fox & Friends” host was forced to make a seemingly obvious on-air correction to an ornery Indiana diner.

Pete Hegseth visited Grandma’s Pancake House in Shelbyville, just outside Indianapolis, to ask diners about the incoming Democratic House majority.

“Phil, your take as President Trump stares down a new speaker, Nancy Pelosi,” Hegseth asked an elderly man.

The man said he expected to see the situation unfold like an episode of Donald Trump’s NBC reality show, “The Apprentice.”

“I’m expecting to wake up some morning and find (on) Fox News, Trump on there pointing his finger, (saying), ‘You’re fired, Democrats,'” said the man, identified only as Phil.

Hegseth and the other diners laughed, and the anchor joked, “Maybe that needs to happen, right?”

Then Phil appeared to get confused or nervous about being on television.

“They say humans learn to speak 3 years of age, put a microphone in front of them, they clam up,” Phil said.

Hegseth assured the man he had done fine, and then reminded viewers of facts about constitutional law.

“He can’t fire the Democrats, but he can stare them down, and that is the big question here — will the president stand firm in a showdown?” Hegseth said.

The anchor said the Indiana residents he spoke to had not yet felt the effects of the shutdown, and he said the customers he found eating breakfast at a diner on a weekday morning seemed to support the president’s position.

“Here in this corner of Indiana, they would rather see the president stand strong get money for the wall,” Hegseth said.

‘Trump brought a whole new meaning to white noise’: Colbert says president gave crackheads a bad name

Published

"They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting Donald Trump to shut up," said Stephen Colbert as part of his debate wrap-up on Wednesday night.

"He brought a whole new meaning to white noise," the host quipped on "A Late Show."

"I don't know what Chris Wallace was supposed to do," said Colbert. "At the next debate, they should just give the moderator a button to bring on the slime. I'm not the only one who despised last night's debate, according to a CBS poll, of the people who watched it, 69 percent felt annoyed. Annoyed? Really, evidently, 'gouging out my eyes with a grapefruit spoon' was not an option."

‘Classic projection’: Mary Trump says the president was triggered when Biden called a policy ‘not smart’

Published

President Donald Trump's niece Mary not only spent her life around the president and his family, but she also has the benefit of being a psychologist who could legitimately assess the life and mental health of her uncle.

Speaking to MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, she explained that in one particular moment in the Tuesday evening debate, Trump seemed triggered by former Vice President Joe Biden's use of the phrase "not smart" in reference to a policy. Trump went off.

"Did you use the word 'smart?'" Trump asked after Biden insulted Trump's coronavirus plan as not being "smart."

"So you said you went to Delaware State but you forgot the name of your college," Trump continued, falsely claiming something Biden never said. "You didn't go to Delaware state. You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class. Don't ever use the word 'smart' with me. Don't ever use that word."

Trump attacks NBC for covering a hurricane instead of his Nobel Prize nomination: ‘These people are sick’

Published

on

In a series of bizarre nonsequiturs in Duluth, Minnesota Wednesday evening, President Donald Trump unleashed on NBC News for covering a monster hurricane hitting Louisiana and Mississippi instead of talking about his friend nominating him for a Nobel Prize.

Former President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize at the start of his presidency, and like the ever-illusive Emmy Trump also hasn't won, the Nobel Prize has never been within his grasp. The Obamas were nominated for seven Emmys for a series of things they produced with Netflix. They won an Emmy for outstanding directing for a documentary/nonfiction program for "American Factory."
