“That was it!” Today, Fox & Friends co-anchor Gretchen Carlson explained her current disdain for a good cold brew. After a segment tease that beer made men smarter than their sober friends, Gretchen declared, “The worst part of that study is that I’m going to have to start liking beer.”*
In response, her co-host Brian Kilmeade quizzically queried, “You don’t like beer at all?” Rolling her eyes at him peevishly, Gretchen replied, “You, how many years have you known me?” Defensively, Brian stammered, “Well, I, but I mean, do you, I know you like one but you don’t like beer? I didn’t know you had a dislike of, of beer.”
Chuckling first at Brian seeming discomfort and then looking into the camera innocently, Gretchen admitted, “Yeah, I had a one-time run-in with beer. That was it!” “Really?,” asked a seemingly skeptical Brian. “Mm, hmm,” replied Gretchen tersely.
Arching his eyebrows playfully, Brian declared, “Mine was with tequila!” As Gretchen chuckled heartily, co-anchor Steve Doocy smilingly interjected, “Who hasn’t had one of those!” Turning to Steve, Gretchen questioned, “Since this is confession now, what was yours?”
Before Steve could reply, Brian chorused, “Steve, have you had a run-in with anything that kept you away forever?” In answer, Steve jested, “Uh, let me put it this way, when…on Capitol Hill…they’ve been talking about the Buffett Rule, I thought they were talking about the Jimmy Buffet Rule which means less than four margaritas probably a good idea.”
F&Ff: Fox & Friends fun. Whether the old saw, “Confession is good for the soul,” is true or not, it was good for a laugh or two today. “Bottoms up,” Gretchen!
