Aly Oops: Trump’s “Book of Corinthians” Blooper

January 19, 2016

The Donald isn’t the only one stumbling over “Second Corinthians.” On New Day this morning, co-host Alisyn Camerota had a faux pas herself re II Corinthians as she smiled at GOP front runner Donald J. Trump’s false step at Liberty University yesterday (when he called Second Corinthians “Two Corinthians” to the merriment of the devout students). Reading the headline news as the third hour began, Aly declared, “Donald Trump looking for some redemption after a slip on the campaign trail: He stumbled while citing the Book of Corinthians at the evangelical Liberty University and now he is seeking to right the ship, courting more religious voters at three events in Iowa.”

Ironically, as Aly tweaked The Donald for his lack of Biblical knowledge, she seemed to display her own as she referred to “the Book of Corinthians” for, at least, the second time this morning. As most seasoned evangelicals should know, “the Book of Corinthians” is nonexistent: Rather, there are two distinct books, i.e., First Corinthians and Second Corinthians. In all fairness to Aly, she was probably just reading the teleprompter: However, if she were well versed in the Scripture (pardon the pun), she probably should have noticed her mistake the second time. The irony of Aly’s miscitation was rather amusing.

Nevertheless, if evangelical Christians are true to form, the lovely Aly and the dapper Donald will probably be forgiven posthaste. As to referring to Corinthians in the future–or, at least, their leather–perhaps, that should be left to the inimitable Ricardo Montalban.

“Spewing” Gregg Jarrett: No Trump Fan

December 24, 2015

Jarrett: Trump a liar–and a bad student. FNC honcho Roger Ailes’ “erstwhile errant anchor” Gregg Jarrett continued his quixotic assault on The Donald today as guest co-host on America’s Newsroom. Approximately, two months ago, he accused Trump of being a liar: Today, he inanely assailed him as a poor grammarian. As any politico knows, when one hits Trump, you may get hit back–hard.

After a segment subtitled “Trump Warns Clinton ‘Be Careful’ with Sexism Accusation” which featured Trump’s Tweet, saying, “Hillary, when you complain about “a penchant for sexism,” who are you referring to. I have great respect for women. BE CAREFUL,” Gregg snarked, “Have you noticed when Donald Trump Tweets he makes grammatical mistakes? He ended the sentence with a preposition: “Who are you referring to”? It should be ‘to whom are you referring?'”

As he began his pedantic critique, supra, a smiling Abby Huntsman laughed, “I don’t know where this is going, Gregg!” After he finished his ill-considered jab at Trump, Abby explained, “You know Tweets are weird: You know, they’re short. I’m not defending his Tweets at all.”

Not pleased with Abby’s sympathetic response, Gregg curtly queried, “Okay to make grammatical mistakes?”

Abby replied, “But, usually, he’s due. I think people like that though. That’s kind of his appeal: He doesn’t care; he doesn’t care how he sounds; he doesn’t care what he Tweets.”

In response, Gregg stammered, “Maybe, he was asleep in grade school: I don’t kn0w.”

Greg, Abby may be the  newbie on the FNC scene and a fabulously gorgeous gal but make no mistake–she is no dummy. She knows the ropes in both the studio and in politics, and, perhaps, you could learn a thing or two from her, i.e., the meaning of FNC’s famed “fair and balanced” ethic from her.

Or, you could retake that ethics course in journo school–that you may have fallen “asleep” in. Oops! Sorry, Gregg, about ending my sentence in a–gasp–preposition.

Aly’s Goodbye Kiss

December 24, 2015

Sweet –and sexy! On this Christmas Eve, New Day co-anchor Alisyn Camerota must have been standing under the mistletoe. As Aly bid her ND fans a fond farewell this morn, she blew them a rare kiss for holiday cheer.

Not surprisingly, her co-host Chris Cuomo suddenly played the Grinch, feebly attempting to steal some sweet and sexy CNN Christmas joy from Aly and her acolytes. Fecklessly, People‘s 1997 “New York City’s Most Eligible Bachelor” tried to mock Aly’s sweet and sexy gesture by bussing the air and looking at the queen of New Day with some slightly “good-natured” derision.

But, the mischievous scion of Mario Cuomo and the younger brother of New York’s guv could not diminish the inimitable Aly a/k/a the “Bristol Bay Babe.” She may be his TV wife: But, Chris does well to remember that Aly is his better ND half–and, indubitably, the fairer sex!

O’Reilly: “Midnight Tantaros”

December 16, 2015

Andrea: “Oh no. This nickname is gonna stick.” Outnumbered co-host Andrea Tantaros was given a rather racy sobriquet by FNC ratings champ Bill O’Reilly. After introducing O’Reilly as today’s #oneluckyguy, Andrea remarked, “You know, we, we were on the Factor at eight and eleven last night: You kept me up ’til midnight. I’m not sick of you yet but we’ll check in afterwards.” Smiling mischievously, O’Reilly replied, “Well, I, I have to tell everybody [that] Tantaros’s nickname is ‘Midnight Tantaros.’ So…she leaves the show and goes out to Bungalow 14 or whatever it is.”

Shaking her head with amusement, Andrea smilingly exclaimed, “I don’t know where he gets this stuff from! Midnight at the Tantaros! Alright!”

Of course, Andrea’s acolytes may well have a clue. Their Aphrodite is a saucy Greek goddess who has been named one of the “Hottest Women of Fox News” by the “King of All Media,” Howard Stern; was interviewed in Playboy (“Yes, I’m in Playboy this month…No photos tho. Sorry!”); and downed 22 shots on her twenty-first birthday–not to mention who also snagged bad boy Dave Navarro, Jane’s Addiction guitarist (and whilom Red Hot Chili Peppers member).

Yes, “Midnight Tantaros” fits sexy Andrea just right. After O’Reilly had aptly dubbed her, one of Andrea’s Tweeps Tweeted, “You know…Midnight just rolls off the tongue-not that you could be any sexier.” In answer, Andrea exclaimed, “Oh no. This nickname is gonna stick. I can feel it. Thanks @oreillyfactor.”

Thanks indeed, O’Reilly! “Midnight Tantaros”? “Red Hot”!

Surfer Girl: Anna’s “Beach” Bum

December 13, 2015

Lucky Ricky on cam! Flirty Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Anna Kooiman shows this morn why she is certainly earning her seat on the curvy couch. Even though she may not have been brave enough to ride the “hover board” on the show itself, she did Tweet her  very first ride on it afterwards. [Anna’s “1st time” vid.] As she gained confidence simple riding it down a F&FW hallway, the short-skirted siren transmogrified from F&FW co-host to sexy chanteuse and”danseuse,” sultrily singing the Beach Boys’ hit “Surfin’ Safari” and sensually dancing to the beat atop her “hover board.”

Then, Anna’s video ends–unfortunately. But, she did provide a clue to what was to come. Accompanying her Tweeted vid (which was filmed by F&FW meteorologist Rick Reichmuth, Anna wrote, “1st time on hover board! Taken before I busted my bum trying to dismount. @rickreichmuth on camera! @foxandfriends.”

Lucky Ricky! “Back to the Future”: Post F&FW‘s beloved Alisyn Camerota, Anna is beginning to create “vintage F&FW.” Now, Anna’s fans eagerly await the real “director’s cut,” i.e., the uncut version!

F&F’s Hasselbeck Out: Who’s In?

November 23, 2015

“I’m just waiting on a Friend!” Today, FNC announced that Fox & Friends co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck is on her way out and that she is expected to exit the early morn cable news champ in late December according to “Variety” magazine. Elisabeth, F&F fans barely knew you!

Only two years ago (September 16, 2013), sexy Survivor celeb and The View’s erstwhile conservative co-anchor Elisabeth became the belle of the ball, replacing flirty 1989 Miss America beauty, Gretchen Carlson, who never really seemed to quite click with her male co-hosts, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade. In contrast, Elisabeth was the sweet married hottie that put her boys on the curvy couch on notice from the start that she considered them brothers.

To the author who has followed F&F since the days of E. D. Donahey (a/k/a E. D. Hill), Elisabeth seemed like such a sweet, sincere soul that he could not easily snark or snipe at her–even when she became mawkish and maudlin. Nevertheless, she seemed like an odd choice for F&F‘s then EVP of Programming Bill Shine over the much beloved Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Alisyn Camerota who oft held court from the center seat on the weekend curvy couch when Gretchen was away. Of course, the long-time F&F fan was not overly surprised since Shine had similarly overlooked E. D.’s obvious successor, the smart, sexy, and charismatic F&FW co-anchor Kiran Chetry.

Perhaps, Shine will bring back comely Kiran: But, it is somewhat doubtful in light of the manner that Kiran was reportedly dismissed. If he is not ready to bring Kiran back into the fold, perchance, he will consider Aly who was always there for him on F&F First, F&F Weekend, and F&F weekday (as a sub, especially during the big news special editions). If Shine wants to stay with the Fox stable, he may want to consider Greek goddess Nicole Petallides who brings sexy back on FBN:AM on a daily basis (as F&FF once did).

[Author’s aside: Best of luck, Elisabeth! Hopefully, you will enjoy much joy, peace, success with the fam in the present and in your career in the future.]

F&FW’s Clayton & Anna Pulled

November 14, 2015

Jon & Kimberly join Tucker to form the Fox & Friends Weekend “A-Team” Saturday. Co-hosts Clayton Morris and Anna Kooiman were pulled from the F&FW Saturday lineup this morning in the wake of the horrific terrorist attacks on France Friday evening (local time) that left 127 dead and 200 others injured (99 in critically condition). In their stead, F&FW substituted more seasoned FNC veterans, Happening Now co-host Jon Scott and Five co-anchor and guest co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle. Notably, today Tucker got to stay in the game. [Two years ago (04/20/13), after the capture of the last of the Boston Marathon bomber brothers, Tucker and Clayton both were temporarily demoted on F&FW (Saturday) in favor of FNC heavyweights Brian Kilmeade and–yes, dear reader–the very same Jon Scott: Perhaps, to Clayton and Tucker’s chagrin, their then F&FW ace co-anchor Alisyn Camerota aptly stayed in the game.]

At the end of weekday Fox & Friends yesterday, Clayton and Anna promoted their then upcoming F&FW Saturday with promises of guest appearances of “one of the premier psychics in the world, Laura Lynne Jackson” and of Santa Claus. Concluding the show, a smiling and waving Anna sweetly declared, “Bye, everybody! See you dark and early tomorrow!” But, it was not to be: Clayton and Anna had to leave the field.

When there is explosive hard news to cover, F&FW knows full well that they need to go to their “A Team.” And, today they did–with Jon and Kimberly. But, there is still hope for tech geek Clayton and alluring lovely Anna to make F&FW‘s “A-Team”: After all, Tucker got his call today.

FNC: Fairly Unbalanced?

August 25, 2015

Megyn vs. The Donald: There’s no such thing as bad publicity. If one truly believes that gals and guys are equal, they have to embrace the warrior women a la the Army Ranger School graduates: Ergo, when Kelly Files anchor Megyn Kelly takes on Donald Trump she should be prepared for war.

As Carpe Diem readers know, the author is a true fan of Megyn Kelly: Also, the author is an admirer of Trump since reading his book “Trump: The Art of the Deal.” The author finds it amusing that FNC’s CEO and Chairman Roger Ailes would be calling for The Donald to issue an apology for “an unprovoked attack” calling Megyn a “bimbo.”

Megyn is a “big girl” now. She does not need any white knight to save her: She is no damsel in distress. And, every FNC Twitterer that whines about how Trump is treating their nighttime queen makes Megyn look weak and feeble. Their “noble efforts” simply say she is not tough enough for the real world of politics: I.e., our queen can not go to battle or to war against the big boys.

Megyn can fight. And, so can “The Donald.” Let them fight: And, let them both get better ratings!

F&F: The Real Duck Dynasty

August 25, 2015

Willie Robertson: “Bruce, do you think that they can kiss each other?* Yes, it is a little strange that the national media is focused on the author’s neck of the woods, But, it is good since it shows that this area of the country is not the stereotypical “redneck” area that the Manhattan elites too oft mock. And, even if they still snark at the beautiful wedding of Mary Kate and John Luke, they can go to Hades.

This morning, Fox & Friends featured the lovely Sadie Robertson, a finalist on “Dancing with the Stars” and the author of “Live Original: How the Duck Commander Team Keeps It Real and Stays True to Her Values.” It was a scintillating segment celebrating not only Sadie’s new book but also the wedding of Willie Robertson’s son, John Luke, and his beautiful bride Mary Kate MacEacharn.

To the author, it seemed strange: A very special family that he has known for years, the McEacharns, were thrust into the national spotlight. But, it also seemed right because the McEacharns and the Robertsons share the same values of faith, family, and country. Best wishes, Bonnie Kate, and congratulations, John Luke! And much love to you all!

F&FW Censors Sharon Stone!

August 15, 2015

F&F Weekday: Sharon clad & Sharon naked! Saturday, Fox & Friends Weekend producers transmogrified into risible prudish prigs when they censored sexy siren Sharon Stone’s sensual shot featured on the front of the New York Post. Even though the Basic Instinct star had all of her “naughty bits” or “lady bits” covered, F&FW censored everything from her shoulders to her mid-thighs to keep the “p.c. police” away.*

Friday, F&F producers similarly clad the nude Venus the first time that they aired her NYP photo. However, they came to their senses the second time, deciding that the empress needed no clothes nor censorship. And that was during the weekday!

F&FW censoring the NYP front page! Seriously? Ha!

Cuomo Whacks Trump

July 20, 2015

Chris: The Donald’s “disposition, dyspepsia, and demagoguery.” If one watches New Day, s/he can tell immediately that ND co-host Chris Cuomo is no fan of the Celebrity Apprentice star and real estate magnate. In fact, the Cuomo scion evinces utter disdain for the leading GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Introducing a segment re surging Democratic insurgent Prez aspirant Bernie Sanders this morning, Chris facetiously queries, “Is Bernie Sanders the Democrat’s Donald Trump?” Taking a gratuitous shot at The Donald, he snarked, “No, not in disposition, dyspepsia, and demagoguery: But is he tapping into the passion of his party?”

Will Trump hit back at Mario’s boy? Tune in. It should be fun!

Kilmeade: “I Never Came Home to a Parent!”

June 30, 2015

Brian: “Luckily, I stayed out of trouble!” On Fox & Friends this morning, co-host Brian Kilmeade revealed that he was a “latchkid” as a fatherless teen.

In a segment with Hollywood legend Arnold Schwarznegger, who was promoting his latest cine, Terminator Genisys; two upcoming sequels to Conan and Twins; and “The After School All-Stars” program to help kids with homework, music, arts, etc.), Brian embraced his latter efforts, especially, enthusiastically. Emotionally, he remarked, “For me personally, my mom had to work: My dad passed away when I was in ninth grade. I never came home to a parent.” Poignantly, he explicated, saying, “So, I led soccer…half the year: the other, it was unscripted. Concluding, Brian exclaimed, “Luckily, I stayed out of trouble!”

Brian, your F&F fans are glad you, did! Good work, Arnold. And, Kudos, Mrs. Kilmeade!

Camerota Gets Naked– Yet Again!

May 25, 2015

Aly Cat: Rowrr! Today, sexy New Day anchor Alisyn Camerota provided her male admirers with a view that they will relish. A Playboy spread? Not quite. But, she did show some skin–the sight of her naked ring finger this morning.

Lest Aly’s amorous acolytes get too excited, she has gone bare before. After an unexplained two-month absence from her then show Fox & Friends Weekend, she similarly doffed her connubial bling when she appeared as a Fox & Friends Friday guest co-host: Of course, Loverboy was performing “Everybody’s Working for the Weekend” that Friday for F&F’s 2011 “All-American Summer” concert series that day and the bohemian hottie was ready to party (vid). A few years later, (01/04/14), Aly was at it again as she flashed her tanned nude marital ring finger to her acolytes when she guest co-anchored America’s News HQ.

Now, Aly has changed networks from the irreverent cable news ratings champ network Fox News to the more staid 24/7 cable news pioneer. Now, her hemline often drops too low and her neckline rises too high. But, she is still giving her fans the finger–not the mean one.

“Naked Aly”: It has a certain seductive ring to it. For her fervent votaries, it resounded all the more today. Rowrr: Aly Cat is back–at least, for today!

 [Author’s aside: Re Aly Cat, “ages ago,” when Aly guest co-hosted a segment with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on F&F about with what animal the co-anchors identified most, Aly purred, “Cat.” (For curious F&F fans, Steve answered, “Unicorn,” and Brian declared, “Lion.”)]

Outnumbered Turns One: Sexy Fun Facts

May 4, 2015

Fans may have missed about Andrea, Kimberly, and Ainsley. Friday, the Outnumbered co-host hotties featured fun, frisky moments from their inaugural year in a highlight reel: Today, Carpe Diem adds a few sexy memorable facts for the delectable dames’ devotees.

Outnumbered‘s lovely ladies (Andrea Tantaros, Kirsten Powers, Harris Faulkner, and Sandra Smith) Friday celebrated their favorites moments, including what saucy Andrea thinks of when she tries on her swimsuits for the very first time; how a married Harris checks outs a good-looking guy; why one HAS to marry an alluring Ainsley Earhardt; who comely Kirsten Powers thinks is hot; and which heated host was in Janet Jackson‘s Black Cat video–in a cage.

Carpe Diem remembers other sexy fun facts from the gorgeous gals: Andrea racily revealed that she sleeps in the nude;* Kimberly Guilfoyle coquettishly admitted that she was once a Victoria’s Secret model and that she still has “great lingerie” that she models at home;** and Ainsley blushingly disclosed that a certain ex had cheated on her and confidently added, “It was all good; it’s for the best; now I’m married to an amazing guy!“***

Happy anniversary, Outnumbered beauties!

A F&F First: Nudity Allowed

April 25, 2015

“I’m so wasted!” Ainsley Earhardt and Heather Childers naked? For their naturalist viewers, the Fox & Friends First co-hosts made au naturel all natural.

Without warning, blond beauties Ainsley and Heather introduced a NSFW Watter’s World “Political Accomplishment Edition” segment by Jesse Watters to arouse their audience in the early morn to a little porn (April 04/14).* It was Jesse’s usual schtick of embarrassing hapless and clueless hotties and/or eccentrics about current events: This time, he ended his report with an interviewee who said that he was not yet “wasted” and a scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High [NSFW clip (0.17/0.19)] of Jeff Spicoli (Sean Penn) who assuredly was. In the naughty vid, Spicoli proclaims, “I’m so wasted!”: On the wall in the background, there are two apparent Playboy pinup lovelies flaunting their full frontal nudity.

As the segment ended, Ainsley exclaims, “Oh, my word! Interesting!” Chuckling, Heather replied, “You never know what you’re going to get!”

Indeed, Ainsley and Heather! Playboy pinups on air? Another Fox & Friends First!

[Author’s aside: “Cleaning out my closet” [vid] as Eminem might say: Sorry, CD readers, that I did not get this F&FF story to you earlier.]

Kilmeade: President’s “Badas* Glasses

April 23, 2015

POTUS: “Climate change can no longer be denied.” While Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade may not necessarily concur with the substance of President Obama’s take on global warming and its purported effect on the Everglades in Florida, he did like his style. After the mid-show began today with Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon’s Earth Day jokes, a chuckling Brian remarked, “The President was in the Everglades with some nice…some badas* glasses.” [POTUS’s “badas* glasses pic.] As F&F co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck giggled “ooh” at Brian’s surprising choice of words, co-anchor Steve Doocy arched his eyebrows at Brian, deadpanning, “The President’s glasses?” Smiling, an unrepentant Brian haltingly riposted, “Did you see his glasses? They looked–very good!”

Kilmeade & Friends today? No, just a “badas*” Fox & Friends!

Elisabeth’s Freudian Slip: Waterboarding?

April 9, 2015

Hasselbeck’s strange formula for Boston Marathon murderer: It is yet to be determined whether Dzhokhar [Tsarvaev] deserves to breathe another two atoms of hydrogen and one of oxygen.” Today, Fox & Friends co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck seemed to have a Freudian slip while berating Rolling Stone for its failure to update its readers on the fate of their former cover boy, now convicted Boston Marathon murderer Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

During a segment subtitled, “Rolling Stone Silence: Web Coverage of Tsarvaev Verdict Missing,” Elisabeth’s F&F co-anchor Brian Kilmeade incredulously proclaimed, “Well they [Rolling Stone] have a stripe there just for breaking news: I don’t care what it is, where it is; It’s a “Breaking News” stripe. It never made the “Breaking News” stripe!”*

Agitated, Elisabeth exclaimed, “No, they have not updated as of yet: We’ve been checking throughout the night and this morning. Still no update on that story and whether Dzhokhar deserves to breathe another two atoms of hydrogen and one of oxygen! It is yet to be determined by the journey, jury.”

Elisabeth, there is no option to waterboard a terrorist under the current President. And, even if there were one, Dzhokhar needs no “enhanced interrogation”: He has been convicted.

No worries, Elisabeth: You can now take that deep breath–of oxygen.

F&F’s Faux Pas: New “Popped Culture”

March 30, 2015

Elisabeth: “We’re going to take a look at the lighter side of celebrity news and our first story is an update on actor Harrison Ford’s condition.” Yes, Fox & Friends’ co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck so introduced FNC marketing veep Michael Tammero‘s brand new segment “Popped Culture” this morning.* Sorry, Calista!

In response to Elisabeth’s strange segue, Michael intoned, “Three weeks after crashing his plane into a California golf course, Harrison Ford is out of the hospital: The seventy-two-year-old actor reported spotted driving in Los Angeles. Ford not in the clear just yet: The crash left him with serious head wounds as well as a broken ankle and pelvis which he will likely need therapy for.”

Apparently, Ford’s wife Calista Flockhart did not see her hubby’s accident as “the lighter side of celebrity news”: Purportedly, she has forbidden him to fly his own plane again. If the reader views this graphic photo of Ford after his accident (via PerezHilton.com), s/he may agree with the former FOX femme fatale Ally McBeal.

“Popped Culture”: A recovering broken cinematic icon “the lighter side of celebrity news”? Not quite, Elisabeth!

[Author’s aside: Perhaps, F&F‘s copy editor was on spring break in Panama City with Ainsley Earhardt and the rest of Hannity‘s wayward crew (“Spring break 2015 exposed in Panama City Beach” vid): Tammero’s next story on the birth of Carrie Underwood‘s baby had a picture of her newborn subtitled, “Bundle of Joy: Carried (sic) Unerwood (sic) Shares First Pic of Baby.”]

Sen. Scott Brown: “Mr. Vice President…Get Your Hands Off My Wife!”

March 23, 2015

Guest Fox & Friends Weekend co-host: “He just had his hand on her back and it just kept going lower and lower.” Last Saturday, guest F&FW co-anchor and former U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) regaled viewers with a personal anecdote about the roving hand of the amiable Vice President of the United States–on his wife.

At the bottom of the second hour, F&FW returned after a commercial break with a joke by Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon about the President and the Vice President. Segueing from that jest, F&FW co-host Tucker Carlson remarked, “But, speaking of our unusually effervescent Vice President, Scott Brown, you know him: You kind of had an amazing experience with the Vice President.”

As Tucker and F&FW co-host Anna Kooiman gleefully turned to him for his story, Scott nodded, saying, “Yeah, I actually like the Vice President: He does have a good sense of humor.” Sighing, he continued, “But, yeah, we, you know, we have had many encounters with the [Vice] President and referenced one yesterday on O’Reilly where…the [Vice] President, when I was getting sworn in, had his hands where I didn’t think was inappropriate.” Subsequently, producers aired a clip of a portion of his swearing in ceremony: Elaborating, Scott revealed, “I said, ‘Mr. Vice President–I said it to his Secret Service–I don’t care if you’re the Vice President or not, get your hands off my wife!”

Chiming in sympathetically, Ann said, “So, you’re being sworn in…and the Vice President is not touching your wife the way that you wanted him to.”

In response, Scott stammered, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Listen, we, we all have a sense of humor. And, at the end, my wife’s like, ‘Is this how things are supposed to be in Washington?'”

Demanding more details, Tucker queried, “So, what did he do?”

In answer, Scott replied, “Ah, listen, he just had his hand on her back and it kept going lower and lower. And, you know, it is what it is.”

Tucker exclaimed, “Well, that’s unbelievable!”

Coming to the Vice President’s defense somewhat, Scott declared, “Listen, he’s a very, very touchy-feelly guy: He’ll come up to you and he’ll give you a hug, guy or girl. So, I don’t want to make it seem like it was…completely inappropriate [but] it did, I felt, crossed the line a little bit.” Giving the Veep a bit of a break, he concluded, “It’s just Joe being Joe…so I don’t hold it again him.”

Vanilla Perino: As*, As*, Baby?

March 6, 2015

Or, a**hole, Ed Henry? Today, Five co-anchor Dana Perino and chief White House correspondent Ed Henry celebrated “good times.” Apparently, during the Real Story with Gretchen Carlson (featuring Dana), Ed revealed, “She [Dana] called me an equal opportunity blank–I won’t use the word, I think it starts with an ‘a,’ and it’s not a very nice word.”

Poor Ed should not feel too bad about Dana’s acerbic aspersion. He is in good company: Wannabe rapper “Tiny D” called her co-host and bud Greg Gutfeld an a**hole during a break on The Five about two years ago according to Five co-anchor Bob Beckel. On the other hand, the self-professed “biggest fan” of Bush 43, may have been having a flashback to the day that W infamously called that pesky, impertinent NYT reporter an “a**hole.”

Ed: an a**hole? Probably not–unless he gets on Dana’s bad side!
