Kilmeade’s Karma: A Penguin’s Revenge

Gretchen: “I guess you don’t like penguins. The next time they come on the show….” Less than a month after Fox & Friends co-anchor Gretchen Carlson uttered those ominous words to Brian after he scoffed at her heartwarming story about Happy Feet (the straying Antarctica penguin who ended up in New Zealand), co-host Brian Kilmeade got his just desserts. I.e., he got dumped on today–literally–by Happy Feet’s African cousin.

In a delightful “Penguin Picassos” segment, Brian and his co-hosts, Steve Doocy and Juliet Huddy, interviewed the Mystic Aquarium caretakers of two African penguins, Yellow Red and her mate Gray Silver, who walk over canvas to create paintings. When Yellow Red had demonstrated her technique, Brian reached out his hands and asked, “Wow! Now, could I hold her?” Moving away from Brian, the caretaker replied, “She might let you touch her. Let me go back here [to the canvas for another walkover].” After Yellow Red made another run, Brian remarked, “Wow! That’s fantastic.”

When the camera subsequently panned over to a, possibly, now jealous Gray Silver held high by his caretaker, Brian exclaimed, “Oh, geesh! Uh! My brand new shoes!” As Juliet howled with laughter, Steve asked, “What happened to you?” Brian replied, “Uh, it’s, I got to change my shoes.”

As Brian then limped off the set, he held his black right shoe high in the air in disgust: staining it was the white fecal karma for his Happy Feet diss. As if Brian needed to be reminded, Steve “sympathetically” said, “Brian…and that was a new pair of shoes.” Seemingly exasperated, Brian responded, “I know! That’s the last time I have a penguin at my house.”

Or, perhaps, just a little more penguin respect in the future, Brian? Karma’s a penguin. At least, today.
