“Do You Love Clayton Morris?”

June 27, 2016

“Who is that guy?” From the mouths of babes! Fox & Friends Weekend meteorologist Janice Dean asked one more question than she should have. The Weather Machine/Dance Machine Janice Dean is always understandably touting F&F, its personalities, etc. in her “interviews” of the Everyman on the street. However, adults know “the answer”: Kids don’t!

At the end of her weather segment at the bottom of the third hour, Janice turned to the children assembled for “state fair” fun and festivities on the F&FW pavilion Sunday, asking, “Are you guys ready to play some more games?”* “Yes!,” they heartily exclaimed. Smiling, Janice queried, “Do you love it here on Fox & Friends Weekend?” A cute little girl curtly responded, “You already said that!”

With co-anchor Clayton Morris nearby, Janice pressed her luck, asking, “Do you love Clayton Morris?” Interjecting, Clayton pleaded, “Yes!” A darling lass asked, “Who is it?” Looking up at Janice, she queried, “Who is that guy?” As Janice roared with laughter, Clayton sheepishly chuckled.

“Do you love Clayton Morris?” Perchance, the answer is to whom one poses the question. To the F&FW viewer, he is probably “likeable enough” to echo a familiar phrase. As to Sara and Natali, they may differ more than a mite.

Love him or hate him, Fox & Friends Weekend itself is still a FNC fan fave!

F&F: “F**king” Gaffe

June 24, 2016

Smiley apologizes. Talk show host Tavis Smiley had some Fox & Friends fans frowning this early morn. In a segment where Smiley touted his new co-authored book, Before You Judge Me: The Triumph and Tragedy of Michael Jackson’s Last Day, he said, “I was a fan of Michael like most of us: And, the day that Michael died, I was just gobsmacked because I had already purchased my tickets, my concert tickets, my plane ticket, hotel reservations to go to London to go to the old [inaudible] to see his final concert. I was ready to go!”* Elaborating, he remarked, “And, I wanted to know as a fan ‘what happened from the moment you said you were going to come back, “this is it, one more time,” sixteen weeks later, you’re dead. My ultimate question is ‘Why are you f**king’–you know, pardon the phrase–‘why are gone so soon?'”

Co-anchors Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt and guest co-host Pete Hegseth simply ignored his obscenity. Concluding the interview, Steve shook Smiley’s hand saying, “Tavis, always a pleasure!” Some fans, especially parents, of young children, may have heartily disagreed. But, at least, Smiley did apologize for his gaffe: Unfortunately, Steve, Ainsley, and Pete did not. Oops!

Andrea Tantaros Nude

June 19, 2016

Tantaros: How much do I want to share with America? Missing Outnumbered co-host Andrea Tantaros is nowhere to be found on Fox News as of late. Perhaps, she is still “Tied Up in Knots” as her latest book suggests. And, naked in bed to boot.

Sitting in the leg chair on Outnumbered on the right usually, Andrea has always commanded rapt attention in her sexy short skirts and in her killer high heels. But, what else would one expect from the purported love of former Chili Hot Peppers rocker and current Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro? Now she has disappeared: Rumors are she was taken off the air, at least, for now, possibly because of her purported Trump leanings.

For Andrea’s acolytes, her absence is a whit unwelcome. Perhaps, on occasion, their disappointment is ameliorated in part when the leggy Jedidiah Bilah makes her too rare appearance.

But, take heart, Andrea devotees. One can enjoy her 2012 November Playboy appearance, er, her interview–sorry, lads– with John Meroney. Or, read her “Tied Up in Knots.” And, for Andrea’s more avid acolytes, they can be seduced by her siren coos on a future audio book.

Less than a year ago on Outnumbered, Andrea bared herself for her fans during a segment subtitled, “Get Your ZZZZZs with No Undies.”* Presiding over that very segment, occasional co-host Jedidiah Bilah revealed, “You know what’s funny? I can’t sleep naked for some reason. I have to have my Spiderman pajamas on: Don’t worry, they’re very sexy! But, I can’t sleep in the nude–this is why I’m single.” Turning to Andrea, she racily remarked, “I can’t sleep in the nude. Can you? Have you mastered this, this, this?”

Saucily, Andrea answered, “You know, I’ve been pondering this for the entire show: How much do I want to share with America? And, all I’m going to say is ‘yes.'”

FNC’s “Outnumbered”: Andrea’s missing! “Tied Up in Knots”–and sleeping in the nude!

Aly Oops: “Muslim World, Christian World AND the Baptist World”

June 17, 2016

Camerota confused: Blame it on Westboro? This morning, New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota interviewed Orlando City Commissioner Patty Sheehan, asking her how her meeting with the President went yesterday.* Sheehan replied that she had not because “‘they’ were concerned that all the local elected officials would want to meet with the President.” Then the seemingly wounded Sheehan laughed, “I’m like, wait a minute! I’m the, I’m the gay one! I actually didn’t get to yesterday.” Sympathetically, Aly answered, “I’m sorry to hear that.”

Later, in the interview, Sheehan expressed her optimism as an LGBT activist of thirty years, saying, “I really feel a shift…I’ve dealt with a lot of people whose hearts and minds were really set in a way that was not in favor of my community. But, what I’ve seen is really a shift in the faith community.” She continued, “They have been very upset about some of the protests that have been talked about happening here: They say, ‘This is not reflective of our religion.'” Subsequently, she said that the Christian ministers had reached out to the imams and the Muslim community and that it was the first time that she had seen that: Clarifying herself, she said that they had had such interfaith groups (in the past) but that they had been “kind of…the lefty churches…the Unitarians…but now I’m talking about the Baptist Church folks locally talking to our Muslim community which I think is great!” Subsequently, Sheehan added, “And, they’re saying that this is about love and we need to embrace our LGBT community and I’ve never ever heard that before. So, I really do feel there’s a change and a shift because of this tragedy.”

Raising her eyebrows, Aly remarked, “That is a really nice silver lining, Commissioner, because we had heard rumors that there might be these sick protests from that odious fringe group who protests.” Interjecting, Sheehan stammered, “I’m not going to, I’m not going to mention their name because I find them so disgusting.” Concurring, Aly replied, “I’m not either.” Elaborating, Sheehan asserted that they [apparently, Westboro Baptist Church] had promised that they would not do a protest.

In response, Aly concluded, “We have seen lots of extremists…who bastardize a religion and claim it for their own in order to do vile things. And, we pray that that does not happen during the funerals down there. But, it is very heartening and inspiring to hear that the Muslim world and the Christian world and the Baptist world are all coming together.”

Aly, hopefully, love will conquer all as the Orlando victims are laid to rest, and, hopefully the WBC will not disrupt the funerals for the family and friends as they grieve their now deceased loved ones. But, as to the “Christian world and the Baptist world,” the world renowned evangelist Baptist Billy Graham would be rather surprised that you did not include his denomination in the “Christian world.” Blame it on Westboro?

Cuomo Calls Trump ” Our Racist”?

June 8, 2016

“But, he’s my bigot!” New Day co-host Chris Cuomo appeared to “tar and feather” the presumptive GOP standard bearer Donald Trump with the epithets of “racist” and “bigot.” As former First Lady Hillary Clinton laid claim to be the almost certain Democratic Presidential nominee, Mario Cuomo’s youngest son appeared rather ready and willing to try to begin the process of taking Hillary’s Republican opponent out.

Yes, Chris has indicated that his mom loves and admires Trump (whose family appears to have been Cuomo friends–or, at least, congenial neighborhood acquaintances): But, today, Chris seemed to go out of his way to vilify The Donald today. In a tease, before interviewing moderate Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine, he remarked, “What he says may be racist: But, he’s our racist! Is that a winning proposition for the GOP? When we come back, we have a Republican Senator to make the case!”

When New Day returned from commercial break, Chris interviewed Senator Collins who praised her former colleague, the erstwhile New York Senator Clinton, and declared that she has “a good relationship with her.” Beginning his colloquy, Chris queried whether Senator Collins could get over Trump’s remarks as to “this [Latino] judge [who is presiding over the Trump University lawsuit] and that’s one on a list of many statements like that that have come out of Trump.” In answer, Senator Collins said that she would like to be able to endorse Trump; that he should apologize to the judge and to the American people; that he should start acting more Presidential; and that he should articulate clearly what a Trump Presidency would look like. In reply, Chris asked, “So Senator, what do you say to a Republican or a Republican colleague whose proposition is ‘What do you want me to do? Is he bigoted? You know, it seems a lot of these statements fits squarely under the category of “yes” but he’s my bigot.”

If the reader wonders what the Senator said in response, she demurred and declared that she was struggling to support Trump: But, perhaps, the more salient fact was that Chris seemed to call Trump a racist and a bigot–or, at least, lay the groundwork for that attack for future reference. If so, it tarnishes New Day which should be a forum for an open discussion of the issues and the Presidential candidates. After all, viewers want a “fair and balanced” perspective of the news: And, they should get it on New Day.

“Racist” and “bigot” are rather inflammatory monikers! Dial it back a bit, Chris: And, let the New Day viewers decide.

Outnumbered! Sans Andrea NOT!

May 31, 2016

Where the “H-E-double hockey sticks” is Andrea Tantaros? The absence of the sharp, scintillating FNC hottie with the high hemline and the killer heels on Outnumbered is duly noted: The occasional presence of the sexy Kimberly Guilfoyle will sometimes cause the casual male mind to “misremember” her potent presence as some allegedly steroid-primed pitcher once put it. But, the team of Sandra Smith, Harris Faulkner, and who ever happens to be the other two gals du jour–not to mention the #oneluckyguy on the couch–just does not cut it.

“Outnumbered” without its Greek Goddess? Not the best of views! Perhaps, it is time to watch “Fifty Shades of Grey”–or “Eyes Wide Shut” instead! And, if you’re an Andrea acolyte, buy “Tied Up in Knots” for good measure!

Bring her back, Bill Shine! And, quit losing our loveliest ladies–e.g., Kiran Chetry, Alisyn Camerota, and now, Andrea Tantaros! Seriously!

Hottie Huntsman’s F&FW Debut

May 8, 2016

Tucker Carlson: “I hope not the last time!” Today, Fox & Friends First co-host Abby Huntsman finally made her debut on the F&F Weekend curvy couch. As the show started, Abby turned to her co-anchors Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris, remarking, “First time. Are you guys going to be nice to me today? Are you going to treat me well?” Clayton answered, “We’re going to be lovely to you!”

And, Clayton and Tucker were: As well as they should have been. After all it was Abby’s virgin appearance on the F&FW vaunted curvy couch as co-anchor. Abby may not have been the fun, effervescent, flirty Anna Kooiman: But, she wasn’t bad either. She may have flubbed the pronunciation of Saskatchewan once: But, she was more than competent, and she remembered to dance out the segment oft enough for the jib camera–and her fans.

In the author’s opinion, Abby gets a “B” in her first appearance on the curvy couch as F&FW co-anchor. The waifish beauty is a budding natural FNC fox: She is breathtakingly gorgeous, and she seems to be rather comfortable in front of the camera. However, the F&FW viewer could sense that she was not entirely at ease today. But, it was her first time.

Kudos, Abby! You did well today. It was your first time on the curvy couch: And, if F&FW fans have their way, it will definitely not be your last.

[Author’s aside: Re the subtitle, supra, at the beginning of the third hour, Tucker introduced Abby, saying, “Abby Huntsman joining us on the couch for the first time: I hope not the last time! It’s been great.]

 

New Day NSFW? “MotherF**ker”!

May 5, 2016

Oops! This morning, New Day was definitely NSFW–at least, for a moment. As the penultimate segment of the first hour concluded, co-host Alisyn Camerota teased her viewers to an upcoming “Prince’s Final Hours” segment with a bumper video compilation clip from Prince: Unfortunately, the final vid was FUNKNROLL! Just before commercial, Prince sings, “Another motherf**ker you’re.”*

Yikes! Not exactly suitable for children as they are getting ready for school.

Strangely, neither Aly nor guest co-host John Berman apologized to their New Day audience.

Nauert’s Naked Frolic

May 4, 2016

Naughty Heather confesses. Fox & Friends news reader Heather Nauert really heated things up for her viewers today on the F&F plaza: she revealed that she had once pulled a Lady Godiva in a Volkswagen bug–with the top down for all to see. And, she did not seem to mind that Peeping Tom.

During a “Top Adventure Vehicles for  the Summer” segment [vid], the F&F co-hosts (Ainsley Earhardt, Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade) and Heather helped showcase the vehicles with auto expert Mike Caudill on the patio. When Heather’s turn arrived, she sat at the wheel of a 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Dune, exclaiming, “Come on over! Wooh!” As he walked over to jump in, he said, “This is a throwback vehicle: This takes us back, right?” Apparently, it did indeed.

Before Caudill could even close the door, Heather saucily asked, “Ah! Can I tell you the last memory of this car?” Before he could answer, Heather racily revealed, “I lost on a dare to my best friend who had this car and I had to ride in it naked! Hiding her head in her hands in mock shame and then looking up with a sexy smile, Heather giggled, “With the top down!” Turning to an allured Caudill, Heather risquely continued, “And, we pulled up next to my Latin teacher.” Then, she laughed robustly–as if she were a ribald German barmaid serving up copious drafts with verboten views.

Trying to compose himself, Caudill did not reply instantly to Heather’s siren song: Rather, he simply continued, saying, “So, this is a Volkswagen Beetle Dune.” Chuckling, Heather replied, “You’re like ‘anyway’!” Finally, responding, Caudill exclaimed, “I know. I’m like she just said that she’d go naked in this thing!…How do I transition off that?”

Transition? Hmm. Lady Godiva rode on her steed: Likewise, Lady Heather rides in her Beetle! Look out, boys: Here she comes!

Another New Day–Again!

May 1, 2016

Michaela says goodbye. Friday, New Day co-host Michaela Pereira called it quits: Now, Chris Cuomo is the last original co-anchor left standing. CNN honcho Jeff Zucker can try again to make that winning team that can give Fox & Friends a run for the money–or, at least, come in a respectable second.

Last week, CNN seemed to want to ease Michaela out the New Day door unlike its ceremonious ditching of another original co-host Kate Bolduan when she was on maternity leave by Zucker: Nevertheless, the slow sendoff of Michaela from New Day seemed like a painful display of inane maudlin, mawkish sentiment. The shtick appeared to be a pouting Chris about Michaela “abandoning” the show; a reveling Michaela in the “pain” that her departure caused Chris; and a laughing Alisyn Camerota at their silly departure dance.

Before Michaela exited the stage, she may have been billed as a coequal anchor but the loyal New Day viewer knew the pecking order: Chris was the alpha male; Aly was the alpha bitch (in a good way); and Michaela was still along for the ride. It did not go unnoticed by ND fans that prime anchor Chris would open the show in the first hour; secondary host Aly would intro it the second hour; and Chris would lead in the third and final hour: Tertiary anchor Michaela would tend to do the personal interest stories and racially sensitive ones.

Now that Michaela has “left the building,” the auditioning will begin–hopefully, for both males and females. Early Start co-hosts Christine Romans and John Berman would be a good place to start: No-nonsense Christine guest co-hosted ND predecessor American Morning regularly and quick-witted John Berman is oft a guest co-host of New Day. Of course, Aly and Chris might be a good duo a la Kiran Chetry and John Roberts (the last official co-hosts of AM).

Good luck, Michaela, as you move to HLN to host your own to-be-announced morning show! And, good luck Aly, Chris, and Zucker as you craft anew a New Day!

Ainsley Approves Attack on Reagan?

April 30, 2016

Earhardt: “You kinda have to find a little humor in some sad things that happen in life.”  Actually, Ainsley, you don’t, especially when that humor is at the expense of the victims themselves, including those victims of dementia such as President Reagan.

Last Thursday (April 30), Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt signaled her approval of Will Ferrell’s starring in and producing a comedic movie that purportedly would mock the now deceased former President Ronald Reagan in his final term as President as being addled by dementia although evidence suggests otherwise according to Reagan’s White House physicians (New Yorker). Ironically, Friday, after fallout from Reagan’s family and other Alzheimer’s victim advocates, the besieged flagging actor Ferrell announced through a spokesman that he would “not [be] pursing this project.”

Introducing F&F co-anchor Steve Doocey‘s man-on-the-street-interview segment (subtitled “A Laughing Matter? Will Ferrell to Star in Comedy about Reagan”), co-host Brian Kilmeade sarcastically said, “So, we told you earlier that Will Ferrell’s going to be producing and will be starring in a movie as Ronald Reagan….And, it’s going to be a comedy, Steve: And, it’s going to be a comedy because it’s so funny that Ronald Reagan lost his memory!”

As the segment concluded, Ainsley remarked, “Steve, I just think a lot of people will go see it because they like Will Ferrell: I think they expect it to be funny. Shaking her head “no” as if she did not believe a word that she was saying, she added, “And, you kinda have to find a little humor in some sad things that happen in life.”

But, Ainsley, that “little humor” should never be at the expense of the victim. And, if so, the heartless comedian becomes the real joke.

F&FW Mystery: Where Was Clayton?

April 24, 2016

Tucker Carlson: “It must be a little confusing.” Yes, it was! Yesterday, Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade took the usual seat of regular F&FW co-host Clayton Morris without any explanation as to where Clayton was. Today, F&F co-anchor Steve Doocy took his screen-left, usual place on the curvy couch as F&FW co-host Tucker Carlson abdicated his alpha male spot for Steve.

Saturday, it was interesting to watch as Brian tried to awkwardly deflect the “elephant in the room” with humor.* As the show began to “Kung Fu Fighting” with martial artists practicing on the patio, Tucker simply greeted his guest co-anchor with a “good morning” by name, and Brian jested, “Good morning! That was Krav Maga: And, that is a [sic] elite form of what seems to me to be mixed martial arts. It’s a way to be lethal by the end of this five-to-seven hour show.” In the second hour,  when F&FW co-anchor Anna Kooiman proclaimed “Brian Kilmeade in the house today,” he joked, “Yeah, I’m privileged to be here, especially, on National Picnic Day.” As the third hour began, no mention was made of Brian’s taking Clayton’s usual spot on the curvy couch or Clayton’s absence: Rather, they seamless discussed anew Kray Maga after opening to its practitioners jousting on the veranda without need for Brian’s comedy. When the final hour arrived, Anna again introduced Brian, saying, “Everybody, Brian Kilmeade’s in the house today!” Smiling, Brian chuckled, “I had no idea this was four hours!” Subsequently, he joshed that he had come in on his solar private plan. Look away, F&FW fan: No diversion here.

Today, was another day: But, no acknowledgement of Clayton as the other male Fox & Friends weekday co-anchor Steve Doocy took his usual place on the curvy couch, relegating Tucker to Clayton’s beta male position on the right of the screen for the day.** However, today Steve did what Brian did not do, try to explain his presence albeit without revealing the reason for Clayton’s absence.

As the show started today, Steve declared, “Just saying right now, it is not Monday! People are going to being emailing shortly, What are you doing in?” Chiming in, Tucker said, “It must be a little confusing.” Turning to Tucker, Steve responded, “A little confusing to some people and you, in particular, Tucker, because I, you are often on this spot here.” Sounding less than convincing, Tucker answered, “It is one of those little tricks we like to play on Sunday morning just in case you’re hungover”: Even less so, Steve replied, “That’s right. But this is the Sunday before a bunch of big elections, primaries on Tuesday, and so I came in because I needed some OT.”

In the second hour today, Tucker welcomed Steve, exclaiming, “By the way, it is so great to see you! It’s not even a weekday, and you have take time from your busy schedule to come here.” Looking at Steve, Anna exclaimed, “Yes! Thank you for that!” Shrugging his shoulders, Steve answered, “There’s a lot going on!” Once again, less than convincingly, he added, “I, you know, there’s so much going on in politics, you want to be here as much as possible to tell the folks about what’s going on.”

Opening the third and final hours, Steve’s strange appearance on Sunday was not noted nor Clayton’s odd absence explained. An uncharacteristically uncomfortable Brian Saturday and seemingly spinning Steve today make Clayton’s absence all the more mysterious.

Yes, Tucker, it is “a little confusing.” And, Steve, there does seem to be “a lot going on” but not with politics–at least, today. Brian and Steve, it was great to see you both on the curvy couch this weekend: But, where was Clayton?

Kilmeade Disses “Nerd” Kevin?

April 24, 2016

Brian: “Thanks for loving us.” Friday, Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade was no Clayton Morris: And, that was not necessarily a bad thing. In a movie review segment with Nerdtears.com founder Kevin McCarthy, he was not showing the love to McCarthy a la Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris.

As his Friday review of “Elvis and Nixon” drew to a close, McCarthy gushed, “So, I’m the last interview of the day. And, this, this is so cool! So, I’m walking out of the room, and Kevin Spacey [Nixon] and Michael Shannon are leaving the room. And down the hall there’s like this big poster of the film where they have the faces cut out of Elvis and Nixon, and you…do it for a promotional thing: You put your face in there and put it on social media. So, Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon did a face swap of themselves: So, I’m snapping this photograph, and I had to get a quick selfie of myself just standing there with them. I don’t know…I was nerding out a little bit. I mean it was Kevin Spacey from “American Beauty” and “Seven.” It was a cool moment!”

After producers ran the selfie of McCarthy with Spacey and Shannon face swapping in the poster of “Elvis and Nixon,” co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt flattered McCarthy, saying, “Maybe, they’ll make a movie out of your photo next!” Laughing, McCarthy replied, “That would be amazing! That’s going to be the next most requested photo ever at the National Archives.” Chiming in, Brian acerbically remarked, “Kevin, it’s just amazing…they didn’t ask you to hang out because they were so close to the door.”

As the segment concluded, McCarthy ingratiatingly exclaimed, “Thank you guys for having me on! I love you guys!” Instead of responding in kind, Brian retorted, “Thanks for loving us!”

Poor Kevin McCarthy looking for love: And, not getting any from Brian. Where’s Clayton?

Aly Honored by NOIAW

April 16, 2016

Camerota: “You Sexy Thing”! Today, FOX-y CNN New Day co-anchor Alisyn Camerota was honored by the National Organization of Italian American Women at their 35th Anniversary Luncheon today: The NOIAW has not released the reasons for the honor on their FB site yet. But, Aly’s achievements speak for themselves: As her faithful fans know, the Italian lovely was thrice Fox & Friends Weekend co-host (FNC) and is now New Day co-host–not to mention her stints with NBC and ABC.

Today, Alisyn’s lovely and loyal personal assistant Jennifer Rivera seemed rightly pleased, twice Tweeting, “Couldn’t be prouder of @alisyncamerota. [Hand clap emoji]….#2016NOIAWHonoree.” For good measure, she included a seemingly celebratory photo of the two together in her post.

Congratulations, Aly!

[Author’s aside: Re “You Sexy Thing,” in the subtitle, that sensual song was the first one that Aly and her hubby Tim Lewis danced to at their wedding: Unfortunately, she seemingly deleted a vid of that special moment from her Fox & Friends Weekend “In the Green Room” blog.]

Jenna Lee & Hubby SEAL’s Pup

April 10, 2016

Liberty Josephine Babin arrives! Friday, The Five co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle gleefully announced the advent of the daughter of Happening Now co-anchor Jenna Lee and her hubby, retired Navy SEAL Lt. Cmdr. Leif Babin [NYT wedding profile of Jenna and Leif]. At the end of the show [FNC vid], Kimberly proclaimed, “Well, I have a very exciting ‘One More Thing’ today.”*

Gleaming with joy, Kimberly continued, “Super delighted because we have a new baby in the Fox News house. As a photo of the newborn aired, she exclaimed, “Yes, indeed! That is Liberty Josephine Babin and that is the beautiful, beautiful daughter of our very own Jenna Lee and Leif. We are super excited for them.”

Elaborating, Kimberly revealed, “Born eight pounds, five ounces on Tuesday. And, her name was chosen many years ago during a phone conversation between Jenna and Leif. And, her daddy was in Iraq, deployed there….And, Jenna at that time when she was talking to Leif, [she] was looking at the Statue of Liberty….And, the middle name is in honor of her great grandmother.”

Congratulations, Jenna and Leif!

[Author’s note: Jenna and Leif’s son, Brian Marc [nicknamed Trace (pic)] now has a little sister.]

Trump Addles Aly

April 7, 2016

And Confuses Cuomo!  Daftly, New Day co-anchors Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo laughed uproariously at The Donald after a clip wherein Trump instructed his supporters about the proper spelling of his malignant moniker for his GOP Presidential opponent Ted Cruz (“Lyin’Ted”). Unfortunately for Aly and Chris, they ironically gave their fans a laugh–at their expense.

As the “B block” of the first hour began, vid ran of Trump supporters chanting, “Lyin’ Ted, Lyin’ Ted, Lyin’Ted”: Responding, The Donald declared, “He is Lyin’ Ted….But, you have to spell it right: It’s L-Y-I-N apostrophe, Lyin’ Ted!”*

As the vid ended, the camera honed in on Aly and Chris, who laughed heartily with their shoulders heaving in simpatico. Chuckling, Chris said, “We’re trying to figure out why Trump wants it spelled the right way. I said, ‘Maybe he trademarked it or something like that.'” Chiming in, Aly replied, “Since when he’s a stickler for spelling? I was confused about that one.”

Actually, it is quite simple, Aly and Chris. Remember the homophone? Trump wants his listeners to think of Cruz as “Lyin’ Ted.” Not “Lion Ted.”

Ainsley Pleas Anew for Kidney

April 3, 2016

Earhardt: “She’s gone through this long ordeal.” Wednesday, Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt pleaded with her viewers for a kidney for her mother: Unfortunately, she erroneously gave them her mom’s blood type as O-Negative. During an interview Thursday (with a total stranger who gave his kidney to another and the beneficiary of that donation),* she corrected herself, saying, “Yesterday, I said [that] her blood type is O-Negative: But, it is actually O-Positive.”

During the interview of the generous donor Nate Toci and grateful donee Kelsey Crider, Ainsley remarked, “Nate, my mom is on the list–I mentioned this yesterday when I heard your story–for a kidney transplant at two different hospitals right now ’cause you have to get on a list at each hospital. She’s gone through this long ordeal. She has type-1 diabetes. And, yesterday, I said her blood type is O-Negative: But, it is actually O-Positive.”

Pointing to the camera, Ainsley added, “And, thanks to the viewers who have written me about this.” Elaborately, as she turned her attention to Nate, she said, “I’d love to get my mom a kidney but we’re not a match.”

And, once again, dear reader, if you have a matching blood type and wish to donate to Ainsley mom, you can contact Ainsley at https://twitter.com/ainsleyearhardt.

Ainsley Pleads for Kidney

March 31, 2016

Earhardt: “My mom needs a kidney….She’s O-negative if you want to give a kidney.” Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt got emotional after the final hour opening which included a tease about someone who was “donating to a [total] stranger” his kidney. Ainsley exclaimed, “That’s amazing! My mom needs a kidney. She’s on the list.”

Turning to Ainsley, co-host Steve Doocy queried, “She does?” Ainsley answered, “She does. She has diabetes type-1.” Appearing to tear up as she looked into the camera, Ainsley raised both of her hands toward her audience, pleading, “She’s O-negative if you want to give a kidney.”

Elaborating, Ainsley continued, saying, “I’m not a match. I know.” Looking sympathetically at Ainsley, Steve replied, “That’s hard.” Closing her eyes at the thought and trying to reassure herself, Ainsley responded, “But, it’s okay; she will get one; she’s on the list; and it will be okay.”

Ainsley, the author hopes that your mom gets her life-saving kidney–perhaps, from one of your F&F fans. And, dear reader, if you have a matching blood type and wish to donate to Ainsley mom, you can contact Ainsley at https://twitter.com/ainsleyearhardt.

Smitten Ainsley Sexes It Up

March 29, 2016

For People Magazine’s “Sexiest Vet.” Yesterday, Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt was very demure for her fans but she finally showed some skin for her hunky guest, veterinarian Dr. Evan Antin. Yes, that South Carolina Southern belle was clearly smitten.

As Ainsley opened the show in the first hour, she tugged repeatedly at the hem of her dress–four times (a double tug, for good measure), to be exact–to make sure that it virtually hugged her knees. And, she demurely did so for almost the entirety of the show until she interviewed her beefcake eye candy [vid]: Then, she gladly bared her gorgeous gams for Dr. Antin, chyronned “‘Sexiest Vet Alive’: People Magazine Picks Out Hot Doctor.” No pulling down of the hem then: Perhaps, even a flirty hike!

The irony is that it was really no big deal. The Ainsley of old was never one shy of flaunting her sexy stems: But, when she joined F&F as its official co-anchor, she said that she could not fill very family-friendly Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s shoes but she certainly seemed to try her best to follow in the footsteps of her predecessor who platonically deemed her co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade “brothers.” Likewise, Ainsley has seemed to try to tamp down the sexual tension that characterized F&F with “FoxesE. D. Hill and Gretchen Carlson (not to mention guest co-hosts like Kiran Chetry, Alisyn Camerota, and Anna Kooiman) and their co-anchors Steve and Brian (who famously once swatted Aly’s lovely derriere).

For the reader who whines that Fox & Friends is strictly “NEWS,” s/he should remember that it is not. As the current senior executive vice president of FNC Bill Shine apprised the NYT, F&F “falls under the network’s entertainment umbrella and does not pretend to be straight news.” To whit, F&F is edutainment: Get the news with a fun, flirty twist to start your morn!

 

Ainsley’s Dream: F&F Finally

March 25, 2016

A month later: Too banal for breakfast or just right? Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt has definitely paid her FNC dues: As Glamour.com chronicles, Ainsley did overnight shifts on weekends; updates on the hour on weekday shows, e.g., Hannity; a short-lived stint as co-anchor of Fox & Friends Weekend; and, most recently, co-anchor of Fox & Friends First. And, finally, Ainsley landed her dream job, co-host of Fox & Friends.

But, now, Ainsley has to show her mettle: She has to prove that she has what it takes to successfully co-host cable news morning champ Fox & Friends. Previously, Ainz failed to do so when she co-anchored F&F Weekend with fellow tyros Clayton Morris and Dave Briggs: As faithful FNC viewers may well remember, former F&FW co-host and FNC utility player Alisyn Camerota had to return to the show to right the F&FW listing ship and to show the boys the ropes. After her subsequent stint as co-host of Fox & Friends First, hopefully, Ainsley has learned what tack to take: If she falters this time, at least,  she has seasoned veterans Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on whom to fall back.

Even though Ainsley may not be the sharpest knife in the F&F drawer, she does seem to be one of the sweetest seasonings in the cupboard. Lately, the Southern belle has seemed to almost ape [split infinitive intended] her predecessor counterpart Northerner Elisabeth Hasselbeck. A little too saccharine for the author’s taste–not too mention a mite too modest post her brief Fox & Friends Weekend gig: But, she does seem to have the best of intentions to make Ailes proud and her viewers happy.

Sex it up, Ainsley! Don’t let the boys be the main reason that your viewers tune in in the morning. That’s never a good thing!
