“Hold on, Mitt: you’re in for a ride!” Today, Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson got her own motor purring as she took racy delight in the sight of Ann Romney taking her man Mitt for a spin on a New Hampshire lake. In the “Shot of the Morning” segment (subtitled “Joy Ride: The Romneys on a Wild Adventure”), the saucy Swedish siren could not quite contain her wilder instints as producers aired pics of Mrs. Romney taking her putative GOP nominee hubby Mitt for a jet ski romp. Perhaps, having her hunky co-anchor Eric Bolling by her side did not exactly help.
As F&F returned for the second half hour of the show this morning, Eric simply narrated how the Romneys were spending their Fourth holiday week as the water-fun photos ran.* Interjecting, co-host Brian Kilmeade commented, “I think the key shot there is Ann Romney’s driving.” Laughing, Gretchen suggestively answered, “I like that!”
Subsequently, when the shot of an exuberant Ann Romney in control as her man Mitt held on for dear life aired (a second time), Gretchen remarked, “Look, she’s gunning it. Hold on, Mitt!” Then, cackling naughtily, she randily remarked, “You’re in for a ride!”
As Eric chuckled at Gretchen’s salacious jest, Brian ignored it and offered his own color commentary, joking, “We got to get ready for the Romney Olympics….They have a bunch of kids and they compete in a bunch of events.” Shaking her head at his slight, a smiling Gretchen replied, “Brian, my jokes just go right over your head. Right?” Trying to come chivalrously to his damsel’s succor, a grinning Eric interposed, “I heard it!”
Looking at Gretchen “innocently,” Brian impishly deadpanned, “What? No, go ahead. What did you say–you’re going for a ride?” Pointing to herself, Gretchen queried, “Did I over, did I over think that?” Beaming, Brian riposted, “Yeah, you over thought that.”
Grinning herself, an undaunted Gretchen laughed, “Okay. Today, Brian and I are going to be on the radio together. ” Arching her eyebrows saucily, she added, “And, it’s going to be nasty!”
Ann Romney: proper Mormon mom. Gretchen Carlson? “Nasty” girl!
