F&FW: Losing Their Religion?

“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!

*Fox & Friends Weekend – 09/06/15 (@ 7:24 a.m. ET).

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).
