Anna On Honeymoon: “Very Salacious” Huddy Back!

September 19, 2015

Kooiman: “I’m going out with a bang!” And, Juliet is BACK with her own bang! Tuesday, Fox & Friends guest co-anchor Anna Kooiman revealed, “I leave for my honeymoon today! I’m going out with a bang!”* When co-host Steve Doocy queried where she would go, Anna exclaimed, “Italy and Austria!” And, in her place on the curvy couch today sat former F&FW co-host Juliet Huddy.

Even though it has been approximately a year and a half since Juliet graced the curvy couch, she seemed somewhat back in her element–even though Juliet awkwardly defended her friend View co-host Michelle Collins repeatedly for her snarky remark directed at Miss America contestant, Kelly Johnson (Miss Colorado), for her talent competition as to her life-saving work as an RN. Not to mention Collins reportedly impugning nurses reportedly saying, “Yeah, that’s not a real profession. They want to be doctors.”

To boot, Juliet let the guys and gals know that she was still her own licentious self even if she were dressed this morn more like a school marm than an FNC fox. In a “7 Things Every Man Should Know,” co-host Tucker Carlson read, “You [men] are more difficult to live with than you think you are.”** In response, Juliet declared, “It’s accurate: Yes, definitely! That’s why I think people should live with each other before they get married: But, that’s just my very salacious personality.” Pointedly, co-anchor Tucker Carlson replied to the thrice-married cougar, “And, studies yet do show that people who live together before they get married have a higher divorce rate”: As co-anchors Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris grinned, Juliet laughed, “Which makes a lot of sense!”

Youthful hottie Anna is gone for now: And, the F&FW boys get a blast from the past.

Kilmeade’s “Naked” Misogyny?

September 14, 2015

Sarcastic Brian: “What a shame!” For the “painted [topless] ladies” who feel less safe in Times Square (re a recent attack on the street performers), Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade seems to think that they are asking for it. It was not Kilmeade’s finest hour this morning: And, he should apologize to the topless-body-paint gals who are trying to make a living lawfully–and to all the other women who value their equal rights.

Sounding like a troglodyte, usually au courant Brian opined in a jarringly offensive fashion re women who believe in exercising their legally recognized equal rights by “baring their breasts as men are routinely permitted to do” (according to a 1992 New York Court of Appeals Court decision, People v. Ramona Santorelli and Mary Lou Schloss). Introducing an upcoming story, his co-host Steve Doocy declared, “The painted ladies of Times Square are seeing red, why they say [that] they feel less safe when they are naked in Times Square.” Unsympathetically and chauvinistically, at best, Brian sarcastically responded, “What a shame!”

“What a shame indeed!,” Brian! The apparently practical endorsement of the reported attack on Amanda Roman, a “desnuda” of Times Square, was unseemly and unwarranted. In the author’s opinion, you should apologize to her and to all of the “painted ladies” who are simply exercising their equal rights to earn a living a la the “Naked Cowboy” in Times Square. After all, it is 2015!

[Author’s aside: Perhaps, Kelly File host Megyn Kelly will grill her colleague F&F co-host Brian Kilmeade in his next regular segment with him as she did “The Donald”–or, maybe, not.]

F&FW: Losing Their Religion?

September 6, 2015

“Go Blue”: But no “tipsforJesus”! This morning, Fox & Friends Weekends seemed to snub Jesus, or, perhaps, His followers who wanted to help a harried waitress. Crazy, crazy!

In a “News by the Numbers” segment, F&FW co-anchor Anna Kooiman, a self-professed Christian, proclaimed, “Three thousand dollars, that’s how much a Salt Lake waitress was tipped despite the Michigan loss. It didn’t stop [the collegiate football] fans from feeling generous, adding a hashtag “goblue” on the side of that receipt.”* Even though the a shot of the receipt had “@TIPSFORJESUS” next to the gratuity for $3000.00 and the next frame of the waitress gratefully displaying the tab on the “tipsforjesus” Twitter account, Anna said nary a word about “tipsforJesus,” an individual or group who apparently want to bless others who need a helping hand.

“Go Blue”? Speak of burying the lede, F&FW, “tipsforJesus” deserves, at least, a hat tip!

Update: Happily, co-host Carlson Tucker did finally give an “h/t” to “TIPSFORJESUS” in a “News by the Numbers” toward the end of show by mentioning the name of “the group” (but the meme remained that it was some generous Michigan “Go Blue” fans). F&FW – 09/06/15 (@ 9:49 a.m. ET).

“Clueless Clayton” Gets Mad!

September 6, 2015

Still no theologian. Today, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris got into his usual huff after being critiqued critically. Actually, the thin-skinned chap got even more irate this morning: The silly boy blocked the author from following his Twitter feed after the Carpe Diem article this morning entitled, “Clueless Clayton: Putative Theologian!

Poor Clayton: Unfortunately for him, the author actually listens to him. Yesterday, Clayton erroneously declared, “In the Bible…it explicitly says, ‘Be stoned if you get divorced.'” He was obviously winging it, and the author called him on it, pointing out that the Scriptural reference (Deuteronomy 22:22) pertained to an adulterer and an adulteress.

Re Clayton’s peevish response to the author’s article: No worries, anything that the author really cares about is what he says on Fox & Friends Weekend. As to his cyber world advice, FNC’s “Kurt the CyberGuy” will do just fine. Or even better.

Clayton, man up! See you tomorrow, I assume, on F&F.

Clueless Clayton: Putative Theologian!

September 6, 2015

“In the Bible…it explicitly says, ‘Be stoned if you get divorced.” This morning Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris showed that he is no Biblical scholar. Nor is his co-anchor Tucker Carlson.

In an exchange between Clayton and Tucker about the Kentucky clerk of court who refuses to issue marriage certificates to same-sex couples, they pretended to know Scripture: I.e, they both posited that the Bible advocates stoning to death of those who are divorced. Clayton noted that she had been divorced (as he has been) and declared that there was a lot of hypocrisy: He declared, “In the Bible right? It explicitly says, ‘Be stoned if you get divorced–to be stoned to death.”* Chiming in, Tucker, said, “That’s the Old Testament!”

Sorry, Clayton, your spurious assertion is in neither the Old or New Testaments. Stoning to death pertained to an adulterer or an adulteress–not a divorcee. (Deuteronomy 22:22). Clayton and Tucker, please just stick with the facts–and don’t try to wing it!

Carlson Condones Cadet Mayhem?

September 5, 2015

“Pretty clever.” This morning, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host  Tucker Carlson was his usual politically incorrect self–which is not always a bad thing: But, today it was.

As the news reader (in the early third hour), Tucker declared, “The guys at West Point are warriors, of course, so when then they have a pillow fight it can turn bloody. Thirty cadets were injured during the military academy’s annual freshmen tradition. Turns out some cadets put helmets in their pillowcases.”*

Rather than decrying the military mayhem, Tucker exclaimed, “Pretty clever!” Seemingly going back to his script, he continued, “But, it caused a lot of injuries, ranging from broken legs to dislocated shoulders and concussions.” He callously concluded, “We wouldn’t want to fight a war against these guys!”

“Pretty clever,” Tucker? According to the New York Times, there were “30 cadets injured, including 24 with concussions.” Furthermore, it indicated that one cadet suffered a broken leg and others had dislocated shoulders. Not to mention the one who was “taken away in an ambulance and had not returned to school.”

If the reports are true, charges should be filed on behalf of the assaulted and battered cadets. “Clever,” Tucker? Not clever at all!
