Hottie Huntsman’s F&FW Debut

May 8, 2016

Tucker Carlson: “I hope not the last time!” Today, Fox & Friends First co-host Abby Huntsman finally made her debut on the F&F Weekend curvy couch. As the show started, Abby turned to her co-anchors Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris, remarking, “First time. Are you guys going to be nice to me today? Are you going to treat me well?” Clayton answered, “We’re going to be lovely to you!”

And, Clayton and Tucker were: As well as they should have been. After all it was Abby’s virgin appearance on the F&FW vaunted curvy couch as co-anchor. Abby may not have been the fun, effervescent, flirty Anna Kooiman: But, she wasn’t bad either. She may have flubbed the pronunciation of Saskatchewan once: But, she was more than competent, and she remembered to dance out the segment oft enough for the jib camera–and her fans.

In the author’s opinion, Abby gets a “B” in her first appearance on the curvy couch as F&FW co-anchor. The waifish beauty is a budding natural FNC fox: She is breathtakingly gorgeous, and she seems to be rather comfortable in front of the camera. However, the F&FW viewer could sense that she was not entirely at ease today. But, it was her first time.

Kudos, Abby! You did well today. It was your first time on the curvy couch: And, if F&FW fans have their way, it will definitely not be your last.

[Author’s aside: Re the subtitle, supra, at the beginning of the third hour, Tucker introduced Abby, saying, “Abby Huntsman joining us on the couch for the first time: I hope not the last time! It’s been great.]

 

F&FW Mystery: Where Was Clayton?

April 24, 2016

Tucker Carlson: “It must be a little confusing.” Yes, it was! Yesterday, Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade took the usual seat of regular F&FW co-host Clayton Morris without any explanation as to where Clayton was. Today, F&F co-anchor Steve Doocy took his screen-left, usual place on the curvy couch as F&FW co-host Tucker Carlson abdicated his alpha male spot for Steve.

Saturday, it was interesting to watch as Brian tried to awkwardly deflect the “elephant in the room” with humor.* As the show began to “Kung Fu Fighting” with martial artists practicing on the patio, Tucker simply greeted his guest co-anchor with a “good morning” by name, and Brian jested, “Good morning! That was Krav Maga: And, that is a [sic] elite form of what seems to me to be mixed martial arts. It’s a way to be lethal by the end of this five-to-seven hour show.” In the second hour,  when F&FW co-anchor Anna Kooiman proclaimed “Brian Kilmeade in the house today,” he joked, “Yeah, I’m privileged to be here, especially, on National Picnic Day.” As the third hour began, no mention was made of Brian’s taking Clayton’s usual spot on the curvy couch or Clayton’s absence: Rather, they seamless discussed anew Kray Maga after opening to its practitioners jousting on the veranda without need for Brian’s comedy. When the final hour arrived, Anna again introduced Brian, saying, “Everybody, Brian Kilmeade’s in the house today!” Smiling, Brian chuckled, “I had no idea this was four hours!” Subsequently, he joshed that he had come in on his solar private plan. Look away, F&FW fan: No diversion here.

Today, was another day: But, no acknowledgement of Clayton as the other male Fox & Friends weekday co-anchor Steve Doocy took his usual place on the curvy couch, relegating Tucker to Clayton’s beta male position on the right of the screen for the day.** However, today Steve did what Brian did not do, try to explain his presence albeit without revealing the reason for Clayton’s absence.

As the show started today, Steve declared, “Just saying right now, it is not Monday! People are going to being emailing shortly, What are you doing in?” Chiming in, Tucker said, “It must be a little confusing.” Turning to Tucker, Steve responded, “A little confusing to some people and you, in particular, Tucker, because I, you are often on this spot here.” Sounding less than convincing, Tucker answered, “It is one of those little tricks we like to play on Sunday morning just in case you’re hungover”: Even less so, Steve replied, “That’s right. But this is the Sunday before a bunch of big elections, primaries on Tuesday, and so I came in because I needed some OT.”

In the second hour today, Tucker welcomed Steve, exclaiming, “By the way, it is so great to see you! It’s not even a weekday, and you have take time from your busy schedule to come here.” Looking at Steve, Anna exclaimed, “Yes! Thank you for that!” Shrugging his shoulders, Steve answered, “There’s a lot going on!” Once again, less than convincingly, he added, “I, you know, there’s so much going on in politics, you want to be here as much as possible to tell the folks about what’s going on.”

Opening the third and final hours, Steve’s strange appearance on Sunday was not noted nor Clayton’s odd absence explained. An uncharacteristically uncomfortable Brian Saturday and seemingly spinning Steve today make Clayton’s absence all the more mysterious.

Yes, Tucker, it is “a little confusing.” And, Steve, there does seem to be “a lot going on” but not with politics–at least, today. Brian and Steve, it was great to see you both on the curvy couch this weekend: But, where was Clayton?

Aly Honored by NOIAW

April 16, 2016

Camerota: “You Sexy Thing”! Today, FOX-y CNN New Day co-anchor Alisyn Camerota was honored by the National Organization of Italian American Women at their 35th Anniversary Luncheon today: The NOIAW has not released the reasons for the honor on their FB site yet. But, Aly’s achievements speak for themselves: As her faithful fans know, the Italian lovely was thrice Fox & Friends Weekend co-host (FNC) and is now New Day co-host–not to mention her stints with NBC and ABC.

Today, Alisyn’s lovely and loyal personal assistant Jennifer Rivera seemed rightly pleased, twice Tweeting, “Couldn’t be prouder of @alisyncamerota. [Hand clap emoji]….#2016NOIAWHonoree.” For good measure, she included a seemingly celebratory photo of the two together in her post.

Congratulations, Aly!

[Author’s aside: Re “You Sexy Thing,” in the subtitle, that sensual song was the first one that Aly and her hubby Tim Lewis danced to at their wedding: Unfortunately, she seemingly deleted a vid of that special moment from her Fox & Friends Weekend “In the Green Room” blog.]

Ainsley’s Dream: F&F Finally

March 25, 2016

A month later: Too banal for breakfast or just right? Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt has definitely paid her FNC dues: As Glamour.com chronicles, Ainsley did overnight shifts on weekends; updates on the hour on weekday shows, e.g., Hannity; a short-lived stint as co-anchor of Fox & Friends Weekend; and, most recently, co-anchor of Fox & Friends First. And, finally, Ainsley landed her dream job, co-host of Fox & Friends.

But, now, Ainsley has to show her mettle: She has to prove that she has what it takes to successfully co-host cable news morning champ Fox & Friends. Previously, Ainz failed to do so when she co-anchored F&F Weekend with fellow tyros Clayton Morris and Dave Briggs: As faithful FNC viewers may well remember, former F&FW co-host and FNC utility player Alisyn Camerota had to return to the show to right the F&FW listing ship and to show the boys the ropes. After her subsequent stint as co-host of Fox & Friends First, hopefully, Ainsley has learned what tack to take: If she falters this time, at least,  she has seasoned veterans Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on whom to fall back.

Even though Ainsley may not be the sharpest knife in the F&F drawer, she does seem to be one of the sweetest seasonings in the cupboard. Lately, the Southern belle has seemed to almost ape [split infinitive intended] her predecessor counterpart Northerner Elisabeth Hasselbeck. A little too saccharine for the author’s taste–not too mention a mite too modest post her brief Fox & Friends Weekend gig: But, she does seem to have the best of intentions to make Ailes proud and her viewers happy.

Sex it up, Ainsley! Don’t let the boys be the main reason that your viewers tune in in the morning. That’s never a good thing!

Did Tucker Say “Fuc*” on F&FW?

March 20, 2016

Carlson: “Fuc*, it doesn’t matter.” Sunday, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Tucker Carlson appeared to have had enough of the Trump “haters” when it came to The Donald’s right to speak. In a segment pertaining to anti-Trump protesters trying to shut down Trump’s speech in Arizona, Tucker went on a tirade:

He said, “So, if the point of this is this is a not a big deal, I, I respectfully disagree: I think it is a big deal….It’s chaotic, it’s crazy. And, one way to slow it down would be for leaders on both sides, Republicans and Democrats, to say, ‘You can’t use force: That’s off the table.” I’m sorry there’s a huge difference between peaceful legitimate protest and mob violence. And, it’s crossing the line, and Republicans have blamed Trump for this; [and] Democrats are blaming Trump for this. Fuc*! It doesn’t matter what he says: He has a right to say it. Period.”

When Tucker said, “Fuc*!,” it appeared that producers hit the bleep button to mute the “k,” at least.

“Fuc*” on F&F Weekend? Not necessarily the worst exclamation that Tucker has ever uttered. But, he might be regretting this one on Palm Sunday.

*Fox & Friends Weekend – 03/20/16 (@ 8:06 a.m. ET).

Ainsley: F&F’s New Queen

February 29, 2016

Ainsley Earhardt’s reign begins! Today, Ainsley finally achieved her dream of becoming queen of the curvy couch. On Leap Day 1016, she took the leap from Fox & Friends First co-host to the new co-anchor of Fox & Friends, i.e., the “Fox” in Fox & Friends.

As the show began, co-anchor Steve Doocy announced, “Today, we’re all a part of the “A Team” as in Ainsley because today it’s official: Ainsley Earhardt is the new host of Fox & Friends. Exchanging kisses, Steve exclaimed, “Welcome aboard!” Turning to co-anchor Brian Kilmeade, he remarked, “Come on and give her a kiss”: Subsequently, Ainsley and Brian embraced with kisses on the cheek. Beaming, Ainsley declared, “It’s wonderful to be here!”

As the segment ended, Steve remarked, “Alright, so today starts the Ainsley Earhardt Era here on Fox & Friends.” Introducing a montage of Ainsley’s past work [vid] as Fox & Friends fill-in, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host, Fox & Friends First co-anchor, and FNC reporter, Steve said, “We have put together a package to remind you that you have been watching her on American television right here on Fox for a very long. Watch!” After producers ran it, Brian queried, “Alright, so you are going to stick around?”

Smiling, Ainsley answered, “I’m going to stick around for a long time if you’ll have me.”

Brian responded, “Absolutely!”

Chiming in Steve exclaimed, “That’s great! Welcome aboard!”

Welcome aboard indeed, Ainsley: You’ve earned it!

“Ringless” Huddy Returns

February 28, 2016

Proud cougar tamed again? Today, former Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Juliet Huddy returned to the curvy couch, filling in for vacationing ski bunny Anna Kooiman. Looking like a school marm, she sported a navy uniform with a long-sleeved white jacket with black trim and a midi black skirt: And, the most provocative part of her garb was her black peep-toe shoes. But, fear not, the suddenly priggish Hoboken honey did offer her male admirers a little skin, i.e., her bare ring finger.

Gone from Juliet’s left hand was the engagement ring of Steven Wright, her “fiance.” To the long-time F&FW viewer, this fact should come as no surprise: The proud cougar seems to go through guys like Elizabeth Taylor went through husbands. Perhaps, the more the merrier.

For better or for worse, at least, Juliet keeps F&FW fans talking.

 

Kilmeade Comforts Kooiman

February 17, 2016

Brian: “[Fox & Friends] wouldn’t be the same without you.” As F&F concluded this morning, co-anchor Steve Doocy announced, “Well, we want to officially welcome our friend Ainsley Earhardt to the curvy couch.” Chiming in, co-host Brian Kilmeade declared, “Yep, Ainsley…will be starting February 29th: She’ll join us every morning as co-host of Fox & Friends.

Turning to guest co-host Anna Kooiman (who appeared to have a real shot at becoming the new queen on the F&F curvy couch after Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s departure), Brian gave solace to the blond beauty, aptly remarking, “And, Anna, of course, you’re all over Fox & Friends: It wouldn’t be the same without you!” As Steve looked on with a kindly smile, Anna appreciatively answered, “Thank you so much!”

Well played, Brian. Anna, you are indeed wonderful in the center seat on the F&F curvy couch–whether you are there on the weekday or the weekend!

Ainsley: F&F’s New Fox

February 16, 2016

Earhardt: “I am…thrilled to join Steve and Brian on the curvy couch.”  Fox & Friends viewers were tipped off early this morning that changes were afoot by regular F&F fill-in co-host, Anna Kooiman: As the show began today with her in the center seat (with Tucker Carlson and Pete Hegseth), she  cryptically remarked, “Good morning! We’re all visiting the couch this morning!” (After Elisabeth Hasselbeck left the F&F curvy couch, Anna has usually greeted her F&F viewers with her name as if she might be the future queen of the weekday curvy couch).

According to a press release today by FNC, Ainsley Earhardt has been named the new co-anchor of Fox & Friends and she will make her debut as the official co-host on Leap Day, 2016 (February 29). FNC Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes declared, “Ainsley’s relentless work ethic, congeniality, and enthusiasm for connecting with our viewers…are extremely refreshing. She’s a superb team player and an excellent on-air host.” As for Ainsley, she declared, “I am grateful for this opportunity and am thrilled to join Steve [Doocy] and Brian [Kilmeade] on the curvy couch to deliver Americans their morning news.”

It has been a remarkable ride for Ainsley in her Fox & Friends odyssey.

Ainsley made her debut on Fox & Friends Weekend as a guest co-host in February 2008. On February 28, 2008 (almost 8 years to the date of her future debut as queen of the F&F curvy couch), Ainsley apprised the author that she was just filling in and that FNC would announce changes when they were final: Even though the lovely got into hot water initially with FNC brass for being honest and straightforward with this viewer in various missives, the chastened Southern belle did finally take the reins at F&F Weekend with fellow newbie co-hosts, Dave Briggs and Clayton Morris by her side. But Ainsley’s tenure was short-lived as her callow boys needed a surer hand to guide the F&FW ship, namely, Alisyn Camerota (who had sailed those waters before as F&FW co-anchor).

But, Ainsley has stayed the course: And, she has always been there when Ailes needed her. Ainz has been a cheerful and ready fill-in co-host for Fox & Friends weekday, and she has happily served as Fox & Friends First co-anchor with Heather Childers. She has paid her dues, and Ailes has now rewarded her.

And, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Ainsley’s predecessor hardily approves: She Tweeted, “Congratulations to my #SisterInChrist & #SweetFriend @ainsleyearhardt on the @foxandfriends news!! This #CBO can’t wait to see you shine!”

Congratulations, Ainsley!!

Anna: “I’m Happy for the Opportunity”

January 18, 2016

Kilmeade: “You’re doing great!” Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Anna Kooiman does double duty and the Fox & Friends weekday boys seem to like it. Today, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy opened the show, remarking, “Brian [Kilmeade], you know, you and I took off over the weekend, and she’s still here!”

Grinning Puckishly as ever, Brian replied, “It’s unbelievable!”

Smiling sweetly, Steve replied, “Anna has worked about twenty straight days. God bless her!”

Flattered, a chagrined Anna chuckled, “No, it hasn’t been that long! I’m happy for the opportunity! Thanks for having me on the couch!”

Aptly, Brian answered, “Yeah, you’re doing great!”

Indeed, Anna has been doing great as the “girl in the middle” on the F&F curvy couch as of late: And, she seems to be ready to take the reins without any real competition.

But, if Anna does take Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s erstwhile spot on the F&F curvy couch, the obvious question is who will replace the vivacious blond beauty in the F&FW center seat.

Since Anna is reigning on both the F&F and F&FW curvy couches rather than having subs, e.g., Nicole Petallides, Kimberly Guilfoyle, etc., help her out, one begins to wonder if the FNC suits are waiting for F&F First co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt to return from maternity leave and to retake her old spot on the F&F Weekend curvy couch to ease the transition for Anna from the weekend to the weekday.

Between opinionated alpha male Tucker Carlson and peevish beta male Clayton Morris, Ainsley just might be that next sweet Southern belle that can continue to make F&FW work.

Huddy: “Good Riddance”

January 2, 2016

Juliet: “I got a good one now!” Fox & Friends Weekend guest co-host Juliet Huddy returned to the curvy couch two days after Christmas 2015 with thoughts of one of her naughty boys–and her nice Mr. Wright [pic].

Introducing a segment subtitled, “Breaking ‘App’: New Apps Will Dump Significant Other for You” (during the holidays), Juliet stammered, “There’s a whole new little caveat to this si, sick holiday thing!”* Turning to Juliet, guest co-anchor Ed Henry chimed in, “You’re not dating the right guys!”

Chuckling, Juliet replied, “Well, I wasn’t, maybe.” Ed riposted, “You should make them pay for dinner.” Giving Ed the Heisman move, Juliet answered, “We don’t want even to go there. Trust me!”

Apparently, reassuring her current hubby, Mr. Wright (Steve), Juliet laughed, “I got a good one now!”

Contrasting her now nice guy with an earlier naughty flame, Juliet queried, “Have you ever been broken up with…through a text or something like that?” When Ed answered, “No!,” Juliet replied, “Well, I have been!”

Concluding the segment, the once slighted Juliet opined, “My theory is [that] if you are broken up with somebody via that way, then good riddance! Good riddance!”

Good news for Mr. Wright this holiday season: He was still on Juliet’s “nice” list!

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!

Huddy Replaces M.I.A. Kooiman?

November 22, 2015

Not quite: But, to paraphrase President Obama, she’ll do–at least, for today. Yesterday, Outnumbered co-host Sandra Smith subbed for Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Anna Kooiman: But, the priggish, lovely L.S.U. tomboy certainly was no threat to the sexy, vivacious Anna. Today, a more matronly, jaunty Juliet Huddy sat anew in her erstwhile seat on the F&FW curvy couch for the comely Kooiman: But, the Heboken honey in red with her priggish high neckline, low hemline, and elbow cuffs [Pic via J$] was assuredly no threat to the smart, sweet, sexy Southern belle, who happily flaunts her tanned, toned stems to her F&FW fans as she keeps them au courant.

Where was Anna who has been gone for the last two weekends? As to last weekend, the author fears that she and her co-host Clayton Morris were replaced for more seasoned journos in the aftermath of the Paris bombings (F&F Saturday, F&F Sunday). Re this weekend, Anna Tweeted (with pics), “Can’t wait to celebrate this beautiful bride over her wedding weekend! Congratulations cuzzzz!”

Hurry back, Anna! You are missed!

Clayton & Anna Pulled Again

November 15, 2015

Kilmeade: “Special @foxandfriends.” Today, Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchors Clayton Morris and Anna Kooiman were pulled again from the curvy couch Sunday morning. Explaining the absence of the two F&FW co-hosts before the show began, Fox & Friends weekday co-host Brian Kilmeade Tweeted, “Looking forward @ working w/ & on special all over the world focusing on @ISIS & FRANCE.” I.e., no worries, viewers, the big boys and the big gals remain in charge on Fox & Friends Weekend: When things settle down in the world, Clayton and Anna will be back.

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.

Rick Reichmuth Mute: Married?

November 8, 2015

Wow! Wedding ring suddenly appears!* Proud long-time bachelor Fox & Friends Weekend meteorologist Rick Reichmuth appears to have finally got hitched. Even though he was sporting his golden wedding band for the world to see, he said nary a word about his apparent new status as a married man.

Best wishes for you and your new apparent spouse, Rick! Wedding pics and a few words are in order: Spill the beans!

*Fox & Friends Weekend – 11/08/15 (@ 6:12 a.m. ET).

Racy Aly: “Something on the Sofa”

November 2, 2015

Carol Costello: “Oh, I wish I hadn’t heard that, Alisyn!” Monday morning, New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota returned to her risque Fox & Friends Weekend days as she concluded the “The Good Stuff.”

As the final segment of ND drew to a close, Aly congratulated ND technical director Beth and her husband on the birth of their first child. As co-anchor Chris Cuomo cooed over one of the sweet baby pics, co-host Michael Pereira looked over at Aly, saying, “We have babies all over the place. Don’t drink the water!”

In reply, Aly deadpanned, “I know. I guess not.” Caressing the sofa with both of her hands, she naughtily jested, “Maybe, there’s something on the sofa. No!”

Arching his eyebrows and shaking his head in disbelief at Aly’s bawdy quip, Chris stammered, “Oh, that’s s[ick?]. Again!” As Aly laughed heartily and a chagrinned Chris grimaced, Michaela smilingly exclaimed, “Hey, now! I’m gonna leave it there! Time for Newsroom with Carol Costello on this Monday morning. Good morning, Carol!”

Taking Michaela’s toss, an incredulous Carol laughed, “Oh, I wish I hadn’t heard that, Alisyn!”

New Day with Aly: not exactly your father’s CNN!

Wine & Pate: Tucker is Okay!

October 16, 2015

No bow tie: It’s Friday night–and it’s FNC. On this latest Friday night on Hannity as guest host, Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Tucker Carlson reminded this viewer of his old CNN Crossfire days when he represented the right–except he was not sporting his obnoxiously effete, elitist bow tie of olden times. Instead, his F&FW experience has seemed to illuminate the Daily Caller co-founder and editor-in-chief that it is well and good to utilize logic and reason in polemics but, if he is truly  to engage Everyman/Everywoman, he must eschew his natural tendency not to reveal things about himself on air but rather to embrace a more vulnerable approach–and, yes, even to eat food on air.

Tucker has come far on FNC: The F&FW fop sits more comfortably on the curvy couch; he has seamlessly seized the alpha male mantle from co-anchor Clayton Morris; and he seems to connect more easily with the alluring Anna Kooiman. Now, Tucker pontificates with confidence; Clayton opines deferentially; and co-anchor Anna Kooiman coos with confidence.

And, as long-time F&FW fans miss the erstwhile ensembles, they may begin to more fully embrace the “new faces” of FNC’s early weekend morn. Political pundit Tucker “ain’t” too bad, and tech geek Clayton may pass muster: But, sorry, boys, the vivacious vixen Anna is the real draw!

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!

*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).

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!

*Fox & Friends Weekend – 09/05/15 (@ 8:23 a.m. ET).
