Fox News' Pete Hegseth implored viewers to show that famous American spirit and courage in the face of a global pandemic. He has studied the board and concluded it is time for everyone to rush out there and deliberately infect themselves with COVID-19 so we can achieve herd immunity and finally lick this thing. Here's what he told Outnumbered today:
"I do think you're going to need that kind of ethos and that spirit to put freedom before fear," Hegseth said. "Listen, there's a lot of anxiety, there's a lot of misinformation, the experts have been telling us hundreds of thousands of people are going to die. Now that we're learning more, herd immunity is our friend. Healthy people, they're going to get out there, they're going to have to have some courage."
You'll notice these comments came from a home studio decorated like the barbershop your grandfather went to for 50 years. That is because Hegseth and his colleagues have been told not to come into the network's Manhattan studios for some reason. Wonder what it could be.
