Kilmeade’s “Man” Fail

May 26, 2015

Brian: “I kinda of failed at the manhood thing….I’m a man in training.” Indeed! Where was Steve Doocy? In an incredible display of ineptness at basic “masculinity” this morning, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade showed his lack of the basic knowledge of how to change a tire. Hilarious!

In a segment with Derrick Van Orden, the author of Book of Man: A Former Navy Seal’s Guide to the Lost Art of Manhood, Brian and guest co-anchor Scott Brown were given the simple task of changing a tire to prove that they were real men ostensibly for co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. As Scott began to jack up the car, Brian enthusiastically began to take off the lug nuts as if he were in a pit crew for an Indy race. Instead of loosening the lug nuts before Scott raised the car enough to take the tire off, Brian pulled all of them off except one before Scott had jacked the auto up and stabilized it. Suddenly, the car lurched forward and the jack began to fall: As Brian inexplicably tried to remove the tire, which would have resulted in the car hitting the ground unceremoniously and, possibly injuring him and others, the Navy SEAL aptly intervened, saying, “Stop what you’re doing; let it down; the jack has fallen.”

Ever waggish, Brian intoned, “This is why I have a triple “A” (AAA) card!”

Thankfully!

[Author’s aside: Even though the author thinks that characterizing changing a tire as masculine is intrinsically sexist–the author’s sisters may well prefer that their guys do it but they certainly could do it if they so desired–Brian and Scott failed at the “man” test. Obviously, Brian and Scott should have put the car in gear or in park and put the emergency brake on first. Then, Scott should have jacked up the car a bit with the wheel still soundly in touch with the ground; Brian should have loosened the lug nuts; Scott should have jacked the auto up until the tire cleared the ground; Brian should have removed the tire; and then they could have replaced the tire.]

[Author’s aside #2: Fox & Friends posted a vid of Brian and Scott being “men” by tying a tie and tying a knot but they have not posted the one of the epic “man” fail by the guys.]

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.”)]

Media Buzz: Haughty Howie

May 17, 2015

Kurtz: “You might even get a response from me.” What a Sunday “beast”: Howie, you’re on Fox News now! Media Buzz host Howard Kurtz sounded today like he is still with the media effete elite.

Closing his show today, Howie promoted his social media site and e-mail address, saying, “That’s it for this edition of Media Buzz: I’m Howard Kurtz. We hope you’ll ‘like’ our Facebook page….Send us an e-mail with a media question, not a political speech: FoxMediaBuzz@foxnews.com, Fox MediaBuzz@foxnews.com.” Raising his eyebrows high with a smile at his lowly FNC audience, he added, “You might even get a response from me.”

From Fox & Friends to “Howie & Haughty”: What a segue! If Howard is lucky, he “might even get a response from me.” I guess he just did!

Howie, you’re on Fox News now: Don’t insult your viewer!

Update: Howie humbler a week later: More respectful of his FNC audience Sunday, Kurtz closed his show, saying, “That’s it for this edition of Media Buzz: I’m Howard Kurtz….Remember that you can always check out our Facebook page….Email us at MediaBuzz@foxnews.com. Questions about the media I will respond online: maybe, even here.” [Italics added for emphasis.]

Hannity’s Coed “Debauchery”

May 14, 2015

“T & a”: randy O’Reilly style! Sean Hannity, host of his eponymous program, seems to have taken a page out of O’Reilly Factor anchor Bill O’Reilly‘s old playbook. Decry debauchery but let your audience enjoy the view without feeling too guilty. Tuesday night, Hannity introduced his show with approximately fifteen seconds of coed “t & a,” piously intoning, “After years of out-of control partying, chaos, crime, and now even rape, Panama City Beach, Florida, finally votes to clean up spring break!”

Announcing a “Fox News Alert,” a la O’Reilly, Hannity proudly proclaimed the efficacy of his show, saying, “Panama City, Florida, is taking major steps tonight in order to end the chaos and the crime that has plagued the city during spring break: The city council has now voted to ban alcohol on the beach and try to stop all of this out of control behavior. Now, following a two-year Hannity investigation into what really happens when your kids jet off to spring break, we discover, in fact, that it was not all fun in the sun. This year alone the partying scene was wrought with debauchery, wide-spread drug abuse, gang rapes, and even multiple attempted murders.” He continued, “So, in response, finally…the Panama City Beach city council voted unanimously last night to ban alcohol on the beach during the month of March next year–that’s the height of spring bring…and to end all booze sales after 2 a.m….

In the segment with a Panama City Beach city councilman, an attorney, and an activist, Hannity, queried, “So, the question is ‘will these new common sense measures curtail the very dangerous spring break situation that Panama City Beach has been experiencing?”‘ As the three showered approbation on Hannity for the good that he had wrought in his campaign against a raucous spring break in Panama City Beach, footage ran of bikini-clad beauties twerking, funneling beer, etc. for over three full straight minutes! Subsequently, Hannity introduced his sexy seemingly naive investigative reporter Ainsley Earhardt in the next segment, praising her, stating, “By the way, joining us now…[is]…the co-host of Fox & Friends First, She’s been down there two years in a row. Ainsley Earhardt is with us.”

Introducing a Daily Show clip of anchor Jon Stewart ridiculing the spring break hype of Hannity, Hannity exclaimed, “We took a lot of heat, we got a lot of ridicule, let’s remind people of what we got when we started our coverage.” In the Daily Show snippet, Stewart derisively declared, “Yes, America’s oldest hall monitor, Sean Hannity, dedicated not one, not two, but five different shows on the horrors of spring break including the entire hour on Friday featuring a panel of outraged experts there to expose this annual event. You will believe what they found ’cause you know.” As he aired a clip of Hannity’s show of seemingly buzzed bathing beauties imbibing and twerking as Hannity voices over, “Drinking, drugs, risky behavior, sometimes with tragic results,” Stewart snarked, “Shortly, after filming that piece, that young [twerking] woman blew out her left butt cheek. Some of the more skeptical viewers might think that this is less of a news story and more of a reason to spend a week running wildly inappropriate “t & a” footage alongside pundits tsk’ing said footage. But, you’d only be 99.9% right.”

As Ainsley and another FNC contributor decried the Panama City Beach spring break scene, Hannity aired approximately four additional minutes of “debauchery” for those viewers who needed yet more evidence of the evils that Ainsley had witnessed. And, for those who wanted yet more proof, Hannity produced approximately another minute of footage during the following segment with Ainsley and Geraldo Rivera (about how things are purported “spinning out of control,” namely the “debauchery happening at spring break, riots in Baltimore, and, of course, the war on cops all across the country”).

Debauchery” on display: O’Reilly’s old schtick. Now, Hannity’s new hook? Surprise, surprise: Sex sells!

Kiran’s Heartfelt Plea

April 28, 2015

“They need your help.” Today, Kiran Chetry desperately pleaded for the immediate help of her beloved people, the people of Nepal (the land of her birth).

In a video Kiran posted this afternoon on Twitter, the Nepali beauty reached out to both her CNN and her Fox News fans: Identifying herself as a journalist formerly of the two preeminent cable news channels (American Morning and Fox & Friends Weekend co-host respectively), she implored her Tweeps to come to the aid of her fellow Nepalis, saying, “They need your help….If there’s anything that you can do to help–a donation, no matter how big or small–you would be making a difference between life and death for these people.” Requesting their immediate aid, she added, “Waiting around to figure out the scope and scale of the disaster means lives lost that could have been saved which is why I’m asking you to please donate.”

For those who may have needed guidance as to a worthy charity, Kiran remarked, “Kids of Katmandu has years of experience on the ground in Nepal. They’ve been focusing on the children and working very closely with native Nepalis to insure that every dime you donate is spent in the best way possible to give aid to those who need it and quickly. And now is the time that they need it quickly.”  And, for any hesitant soul, Kiran continued, “Please if you have even a small amount to give, go to KidsofKathmandu.org or the American Red Cross and give anything you can to help the people of Nepal.

Kiran, this author will indeed. And, hopefully all of your other CNN and FNC fans will follow suit. Kudos, Kiran: Thanks for your video–and for letting your Tweeps know how that they can be there for the Nepalese people!

Aly: Too Sexy For New Day?

April 27, 2015

CNN buttons Camerota down–or pins her up! Sexy New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota apparently got a directive from prudish CNN producers this morning: Button your shirt! In the early morn, Aly sported a somewhat plunging neckline which flattered her fab feminine figure: But, the Fox & Friends Weekend former co-anchor also looked somewhat demure in that her decolletage was not accentuated. However, Aly did subscribe to Michelle Obama’s “dare to bare arms” fashion today: And, she looked lovely.

Perhaps, Aly appeared a bit too lovely for the staid CNN crew. In the latter part of the second hour, Aly was all buttoned up–or pinned up. The author could not discern which offending item was used to cloak the bosom of CNN’s newest Aphrodite, Kiran Chetry‘s apt successor.

Zucker, let Aly do her thing. She rules the morning even if the governor’s beefcake brother, Chris Cuomo, thinks he does. Chris may have been deemed Playgirl‘s “Sexiest Men of 1985,”: But, don’t underestimate the Bristol Bay Babe. That New Jersey cheesecake cutie keeps her fans coming back year after year–no matter what news channel she is on.

To paraphrase the Pussycat Dolls [vid], let Aly “loosen up [her] buttons”!

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.]

Gregg Jarrett Uncomfortable: Awkward!

April 17, 2015

“F**king…stupid…a**!” Today, America’s Newsroom guest go-host Gregg Jarrett got rather uncomfortable today [as he reported a story about the suspension of ESPN reporter Britt McHenry‘s after her “really bizarre foul-mouthed rant against a parking lot attendant for a tow truck company…filled with insults caught on video and then going viral” (via FNC vid)]. And, co-anchor Martha McCallum and Happening Now co-host Jenna Lee did not help things.

For FNC fill-in anchor Jarrett, who recently returned to Fox News after taking off for “serious personal issues,” his segment on McHenry’s suspension was an uncomfortable one for him and his viewers. As his fans may know, Jarrett recently pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct pertaining to an incident at a Minneapolis/St. Paul airport bar and grill: Allegedly, he was intoxicated and he “refused to follow orders and was arrested for obstruction of the legal process and taken to jail.” In a video of Jarrett in an apparent airport holding cell, a belligerent Jarrett calls an officer a “f**king…stupid…a**” and is summarily subdued and cuffed.

Today, a smiling Jarrett introduced his segment on McHenry, saying, “ESPN is suspending reporter Britt MacHenry after she let loose.”* Chuckling, he continued, “[I]n a really bizarre foul-mouthed rant against a parking lot attendant for a tow truck company. The ugly outburst–that’s with a capital “U”–filled with insults caught on video and then going viral.”

Subsequently, producers ran the footage of McHenry horridly raving, “I’m in the news, sweetheart. I will f**king sue this place….I wouldn’t work at a scumbag place like this. Makes my skin crawl even being here. Maybe, if I was [sic] missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?…Lose some weight, baby girl!”

In the segment, Jarrett moderated a discussion whether ESPN had the right to suspend McHenry. During it, he rightly noted, “We all have bad moments, frustrated, and we lash out and feel bad about it afterwards.”

As the block concluded, Martha seemed to gauchely throw Jarrett a lifeline, saying, “I want to go back to Britt McHenry here: I mean…obviously, she was acting like a complete jerk. I think what she needs to do is go back and apologize to that woman. But, the fact that she’s suspended from her job for a week, people have jerky behavior all the time. What’s the limit to that? Where does that end where you’re going to be monitored at home and [unintelligible] well, you said something nasty to your neighbor, and I think that you should be suspended for a week?”

Rightly, Jarrett noted, “Yeah, well the trouble is that she used her position in television in that remark.” He added, “Her biggest punishment is public humiliation. And, boy, check out social media!”

Laughing Martha said, “She’ll probably get more attention….You know how that works. You know how that works in the media world, right?”

All too aptly, Jarrett replied, “I do.”

Probably ready for a modicum of relief from Martha’s ill-conceived banter, Jarrett segued to the promo for the upcoming show, saying, “Jenna Lee is standing by for Happening Now. Hey, Jenna!”

But, there was no relief for poor Jarrett. Jenna began, remarking, “None of us have ever acted…none of us have ever acted like a jerk EVER! Anyways!”

“Anyways.” The elephant in the room remained–unremarked upon. Awkwardly for Jarrett–and the viewer.

Prann Returns: Still Unlisted!

April 14, 2015

Anna Kooiman: “Welcome back from maternity leave!” Saturday, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Anna Kooiman so welcomed FNC reporter Elizabeth Prann back to Fox News after her maternity leave. The proud mom said that the baby girl of her and her “crazy hubby” [pic] weighed 20 pounds: When probed further, she “conceded” that her baby weighed only eight pounds at birth.

Yes, the blond-haired beauty is back at FNC: So, why doesn’t Fox News acknowledge her?  Over two years ago, Carpe Diem noted that the flaxen-tressed lovely was not on the Fox News’ “All Anchors & Reporters” list: Today, she is still not on that list.

Strange. Maybe,  Elizabeth’s former boss, Greta van Susteren, will go to bat for her. Or, at least, her hubby Baltimore Oriole pitcher Darren O’Day should call foul!

[Author’s aside: For an archival post that lists Elizabeth as a “Washington-based correspondent for Fox News Channel (FNC), link here.]

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.

Aly’s “Apology”: Why I Left Fox News

April 1, 2015

Camerota: “I left Fox for more opportunity.” New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota so answered her fervid fans “MOST burning question” yesterday, i.e., “Why did you leave Fox?” [Vid.] She disclosed, “[It is] the question that I get every day.” Elaborating, she continued, “Some people say, ‘When are you coming back?’ And, some people say, ‘How dare you!’ And, some people say, ‘How could you have gone to the dark side of CNN?’ And, some people say, ‘I thought you were fair and balanced!” Smiling, Aly declared, “I’m happy to have an opportunity to address all this.”

In explanation, Aly revealed, “I left Fox for more opportunity, and CNN has exceeded all of my wildest dreams on that front. I didn’t know that I would have all of this opportunity when I came to CNN. I’m so grateful for it: In the eight months that I have been at CNN, I have had more opportunity than I had in the eight years prior.”

Contrasting her new experiences at CNN with her time at FNC, she said, “I have had exclusive interviews; I have hosted documentaries; I’ve anchored prime time specials; I’ve been on every show across CNN’s entire platform; [and] I got a job as the morning anchor on New Day which is a dream job–a long held dream job of mine.” Summing it up, she said, “I have had so many golden opportunities: And, I’m really, really happy!”

Addressing her forlorn Fox fans, she said, “And, I know that you all say that you can’t possibly be happy: I think this is possibly the happiest moment of my career, my long career. And the funny thing is that I’ve loved all of my jobs: I’ve had great jobs! I loved my time at Fox….But, this is my favorite career opportunity.”

Softening the blow further to her FNC devotees, Aly cooed, “When people say, ‘I hope you’re doing okay,’ I am doing okay. And, when they say, ‘When are you going to leave and go back?,’ I don’t think that’s in the cards, at least, not as long as CNN will have me. So, I hope that somehow you can dig deep and be happy for me and even occasionally check out the competition from time to time and tune into CNN.”

Well done, Aly. You may have new appreciative acolytes on New Day: But, you have not forgotten your faithful fans at Fox & Friends weekend either. And, the author’s bet is that they will find it difficult to “dig deep and be [truly] happy” for you: But, they will doubtlessly “even check out the competition from time to time and tune into CNN” for their beloved Aly.

[Author’s aside: In the author’s opinion, Aly said it all, supra, when she said, “In the eight months that I have been at CNN, I have had more opportunity than I had in the eight years prior.” Too bad. A la her former F&FW co-host Kiran Chetry, she deserved a center seat on the F&F weekday curvy couch and she did not get it. The losers? F&F fans.]

Kelly’s “R-rated” File

March 16, 2015

Megyn: “It’s Friday night [and] it’s almost 10 o’clock, so we…can get away with a little more–I think.” Gallagher’s “penis pattern”! Last Friday night, Kelly File co-anchor Megyn Kelly was blushing and she liked it. Known by her longtime fans as a rather racy dame, the whilom GQ pinup [article with pics] gave her weekend audience a wicked tease.

Promoting FNC reporter Trace Gallagher‘s aviation segment toward the end of her show, Megyn provocatively chuckled, “Up next, the R-rated story of a pilot with a naughty sense of humor with a remarkable sense of direction!”* Subsequently, after the commercial break, Megyn segued to Trace, exclaiming, “It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a–what! Blushing, she said, “Something shocking was revealed in the Florida skies when someone watching a flight-track website noticed a private plane had flown a very private path!”**

Taking Megyn’s toss, Trace elaborated, “This actually happened in the sky over Disney World….But, rest assured nobody who was wandering ‘the happiest place on earth’ saw anything filling the sky because this was not a giant sky penis it was a radar penis only visible to those who happened to be on Flight Tracker 24.” As Trace explained the path pattern the pilot took, a full-screen graphic was shown with a moving line that drew the male organ with its twin accoutrements. Subsequently, Trace bawdily concluded, “By the way, this aeronautical artist was doing his indecent doodling in a single engine airplane: You know, a private pilot sketching a private part. And, of course, not that size matters but this pattern was about eighteen miles long. Megyn.”

In response, Megyn blushed anew and partially hiding her face with her right hand coyly. Grinning naughtily, Megyn cooed, “You know, it’s Friday night, it’s almost 10 o’clock, so…we can get away with a little more, I think.”

Indeed, Megyn.

F&FW Oops! TEEN Alcohol Safety

March 14, 2015

FNC “Medical A Team” doc: “We want teenagers to be careful about mixing this stuff (Palcohol) with…other alcohols.” Oops! FNC Medical A Team’s Dr. David Samadi made a Biden-like Washington gaffe this morning on Fox & Friends Week in his interview with co-hosts Anna Kooiman and Clayton Morris and guest co-anchor Peter Doocy: He told the truth. To make matters worse, he told the truth about teens and alcohol and most Americans’ real attitude about the mix thereof.

In his F&FW segment on Palchohol, a powdered alcohol that can be concocted to turn water into a variety of potent potations, Dr. Samadi remarked that Palchohol could “be abused by teenagers”: that it could be easily concealed, and that it could be carried to bars and nightclubs.* He explicated, “My concern is that some of these powdered ingredients could be very, very powerful. So, as we’ve seen with powdered caffeine that were like twenty times more potent than a regular cup of coffee, this could also be extremely dangerous….Now, if it really is that powerful, it can affect your liver [and] it can effect your pancreas, and the last thing you need is for teenagers to get into this kind of trouble…[which]…could be irreversible.”

As a cautionary conclusion, Dr. Samadi declared, “We want teenagers to be careful about mixing this stuff [Palcohol] with other kind of caffeine and [with] other alcohols.”

Oops! Dr. Samadi told the truth: Most Americans know that many teens will drink, and they hope they do it safely–even if they should not be drinking at all.

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!

Clayton Fails History–Again!

March 5, 2015

Cane him! Morris maligns Democratic president anew. Forgetful Fox & Friends guest co-host Clayton Morris still can not get his history straight when it comes to the seventh President of the United States, Andrew Jackson. Over six years ago, self-proclaimed history buff Clayton accused “Old Hickory” of caning someone in the Senate: Today, he maligned President Jackson once again, saying, that he was called “‘Old Hickory’ [be]cause he went into the Senate floor with the cane” (and feigned to swish an imaginary cane as if he were whipping a hapless lad).*

Once again, Carpe Diem must defend one of America’s few democratic [little “d”] Presidents from Clayton’s “history lessons.” President Jackson got his nickname “‘Old Hickory’ because [his soldiers] said he was strong and straight as a hickory tree,” not because he beat some legislator senseless: Rather, it was South Carolina Congressman Preston Brooks who caned Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner with the cane of which Clayton spoke. Six years ago, it was during a “Bad Hair Club for Men” segment that Clayton make his spurious assertion: today, it was during a segment on the twenty dollar bill (citing Jackson’s “beautiful head of hair”).

N.B.: As George Santayana once said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Unfortunately, Clayton did not remember today: And, so, he was so condemned to repeat his own history. Cane Clayton? Perhaps, if he does it again!

Step it up, Clayton!

Dash’s Afternoon Delight: “PILF”?

February 23, 2015

Stacey: I wasn’t kicking [him out of bed]. The Five guest co-host Stacey Dash may be conservative but she seems to have a soft spot for probable Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s hubby. Recently, on Outnumbered, she racily posited that if Hillary were elected President that Bill’s title should be “PILF.”

In a segment Friday (on the Clinton Foundation fundrasing), she upped the ante (during a segment on Hillary’s possible problems re Clinton Foundation fundraising). When Five co-host Juan Williams mused that supporters of potential Hillary opponent, Elizabeth Warren, would wonder what Hillary was doing in bed with all of the big money companies, Five co-anchor Greg Gutfeld jested, “It should be interesting: She’s in bed with the companies, and Bill’s in bed with the company.”* Turning to Stacey, Juan joked, “No. But Stacey’s kicking him out of bed! Oh, no, no, that was Obama!”  Shaking her head no, Stacey smiling responded, “I wasn’t kicking [Bill out of bed].

Chuckling naughtily, Five co-anchor Kimberly Guilfoyle chimed in, “Clinton will be knocking at the door!”

Hemmer: Carlson’s “Fun” Parties

February 19, 2015

“Mom says, ‘Don’t tell me that stuff, Gretchen. I don’t want to know!” Gretchen Carlson, host of The Real Story shared the scoop on her wild ways with American Newsroom Bill Hemmer in their early days. FNC fun: Beefcake Bill and Carlson Cheesecake!

In a new segment entitled “My Friends at Fox,” Gretchen brought out Bill for its inaugural debut with the seeming double entendre hashtag #WHATSYOURBEEF. After posing political queries to Bill, Gretch concluded the interview, saying, “As part of my ‘Friends at Fox,’ we’re also interested in our guests giving us just one more thing, maybe, something that people don’t know about you!”*

Raising his eyebrows and chuckling, Bill sheepishly exclaimed, “Now!”

Giggling, Gretchen replied, “Now, Hemmer…I’ve known you for a long time. I know that you left your job and traveled the world for a year: you’ve been to sixty countries. I know that you love golf–I know a lot more about you!”

After some additional idle chatter, Gretchen concluded their segment together [FNI vid], saying, “Well, time for my take now. Today we kicked off My Friends at Fox is because one of the best things about working in the TV business is what a small world it actually and how you keep running into the same people you’ve worked with before in another life. Well, that happened right here at this office a couple times.”

As a throwback pic of the happy duo embracing appeared onscreen [FNI pics (w/i vid)], Gretchen remarked, “Take a look at these gems! Yep, this is Bill Hemmer and Gretchen Carlson from the early days in our careers.” As Bill jested, “PhotoShop!,” yet another pic of the two happily together appeared: Giggling, Gretchen continued,”The late ’90’s when we were both still in our very young twenties, hanging out and working together at WCPO in Cincinnati. We had a lot of fun, right, Bill!”

Seemingly, starting to remember those times together anew, Bill suggestively responded, “Ah, hnh!”

Innocently, Gretchen intoned, “But, the best thing is that we’ve remained friends all these years….Bill and I both shared the same dream, to work hard and [to] see where we ended up. And, as fate would have it, we both ended up here at the Fox News Channel…Hemmer, truly one of my friends at Fox!”

Apparently, not quite ready for the conversation to end on that note, Bill chimed in, “Thank you, Gretchen. The parties you threw back in day!” As Gretchen try to shush him, Bill laughed, “Do your parents have any idea!”

Gretchen replied, “They do actually.” As Bill arched his eyebrows incredibly,  Gretchen saucily answered, “My mom says, ‘Don’t tell me that stuff, Gretchen: I don’t want to know!’ We had some fun, Hemmer!”

Anna Admits: He Put a Ring on It!

February 7, 2015

Kooiman: “My partner in crime forever!” This afternoon, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Anna Kooiman confirmed her co-host Tucker Carlson‘s revelation early this morning: With a pic of herself  (with a ring on it!) and her beloved in Oz, she Tweeted, “We’re engaged! My favorite person on the planet popped the question watching the sunrise over the Sydney Harbor! Yay!”

Prominently sporting her connubial bling, Anna posted another photo of herself kissing her lover in front of the iconic Sydney Opera House, Tweeting, “Engaged! Can’t wait for this fun spirited witty benevolent intelligent amazing man to be my partner in crime forever!”

For good measure, Anna Tweeted yet another pic of herself, her lucky lad, and–yes–her marital rock, saying, “Celebrating our engagement with family and friends! Bling bling! Best. Birthday. Present. Ever!”

Oddly, Anna did not reveal who her lucky lad is. After Tucker’s premature disclosure this morning, the author assumes she is hoping to share, at least, that one “secret” with her Fox & Friends Weekend fans upon her return.

Well played, Anna!

[Author’s aside: Anna’s man? Probably, Mark!]

Update: On Sunday morning, F&FW producers revealed in a “Shot of the Day” aptly initially subtitled “He Put a Ring on It!” that Anna’s fiance is an Aussie named Tim. Sorry, Mark! F&FW – 02/08/15 (@ 8:32 a.m. ET).

Anna Kooiman Engaged!

February 7, 2015

Ainsley: “Wait! Are you allowed to say that!” Oops! Early this morning, Fox & Friends co-anchor Carlson Tucker revealed that his vacationing co-host birthday girl Anna Kooiman got engaged–before she was ready to disclose the news to her F&F fans, seemingly.

As F&F began today, Tucker welcomed fill-in co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt to the curvy couch: Explaining Anna’s absence, Tucker remarked, “Our friend, Anna Kooiman, is out today. It’s her birthday, and she got engaged! So, congratulations!”

Looking at Tucker in utter disbelief, Ainsley exclaimed, “Wait! Are you allowed to say that! I think she was going to tell everyone!”

Putting his hands up in the air, Tucker sheepishly answered, “I don’t know! I just did!” Chuckling, a chagrined Tucker continued, “I’m sorry! I’m excited: I can’t help it! She’s in Australia right now. Anyway, congratulations, Anna!”

Indeed. Congratulations, Anna! And, Happy birthday!

[Author’s aside: Even though Anna has not revealed her engagement to her F&F fans, she did post some of her vacation pictures in Sydney [1, 2]. Seemingly, Anna plans to tie the knot with housemate Mark.]

Update: Sorry, Mark: Anna is engaged to an Aussie named Tim. F&FW – 02/08/14 (@ 8:32 a.m. ET).
