Fox host says he 'hasn't washed hands in 10 years'

Fox host says he 'hasn't washed hands in 10 years'

Co-hosts Ed Henry and Jedediah Bila chuckled as Mr Hegseth continued: "I don't really wash my hands".

'Pizza Hut lasts for a long time, ' Hegseth replied, justifying himself.

"I innoculate myself", he said on Monday, after announcing that his 2019 resolution was to say more of what he says off-air on television.

"Really", he said. "I don't really wash my hands ever".

Over the years there has been some truly absurd nonsense coming out of FOX News; claiming Obama has a real birth certificate from the Moon or wherever, paper-thin political deadshits telling LeBron James to "shut up and dribble, " every news anchor on the network claiming to have sucked off a goblin (probably, I'm not poisoned enough in the head to watch and confirm that). He told them, "I can't get sick". "Therefore they're not real", Hegseth insisted.

Hegseth admitted to the gross fact shortly after his co-hosts had been taking the piss out of him for eating day-old, leftover pizza.

"We're on a show and we have fun and we banter and I'm like, eh, you know, maybe I haven't washed my hands for 10 years", he said.

Hegseth later shared a Tweet in support of his unusual concept of health and hygiene with the hashtag "DontWash".

Early on Tuesday morning, Hegseth responded by paraphrasing recent comments from the US President, implying his on-air statements were a joke.

Hegseth's thinking is at-odds with science which has long confirmed that germs, and microbes live nearly everywhere: on food, animals, and plants, in the air, and in soil and water and on people's hands.

"I wonder if @PeteHegseth would be cool with restaurant workers preparing his food after deliberately not washing their hands?" a different social media user expressed.

"Removing germs through hand washing therefore helps prevent diarrhea and respiratory infections and may even help prevent skin and eye infections".

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides an extensive list of situations where you should wash your hands on its website, and it includes the vast majority of human day-to-day activities. Hegseth notoriously hit a West Point drummer with a misdirected ax during a live segment from Times Square in NY in 2015.
