Gretchen Goes Down

In a somewhat surreal moment, Fox & Friends co-anchor Gretchen Carlson got down under the curvy couch table and lay in a fetal position after ominous warnings by the eponymous host of the Glenn Beck show. After previously predicting a possible depression and revolution to a rather skeptical Bill O’Reilly, Beck iterated the same forecast to the F&F co-hosts Gretch, Brian Kilmeade, and Steve Doocy with more elaboration. When Beck mentioned that the military was preparing for a potential revolution, Gretch got alarmed.

As Beck began to go more and more into detail, Gretch said, “You know what, I’m just going to get down here ’cause you’re scaring me so much; I’m just taking a break; [and] I’m going to be hiding underneath here, Glen, okay? Tell me when the world is okay to come back out, okay?” Beck and Brian began laughing and Steve just looked down with incredulity. Gretch remained there for the remainder of the segment while the others humored her.

Even though Gretch looked a bit silly and not quite with it, she was endearing. She seemed to be making an effort to go beyond her CBS comfort zone and reach out to her zanier F&F audience. Good effort, Gretch!

    My initital thought: not something E D Hill would have come close to doing.

    My second thought: why does this remind me of Ainsley Earhardt

    E.D. got dunked in a dunk tank, rode mini tricycles, held snakes and chimps, and participated in sumu wrestling. I think she was up to this. No big deal.
    I saw this and cringed a bit for Gretch, but I agree with Jakeho that at least she gave it a shot. “A” for effort.

    Correction: Fake Sumo Wrestling.
