Fox & Friends Host Says Germs Aren't Real

USA television host Pete Hegseth has sparked widespread confusion after on-air claims that he hasn't "washed his hands in 10 years" because "germs are not a real thing".

"I inoculate myself", he continued.

Hegseth explained to them, "Germs are not a real thing. I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as much as possible". In contrast with Hegseth, Trump is a self-proclaimed "germaphobe" who reportedly has a disdain for handshakes and a passion for frequent hand washing.

"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.

The entire exchange was prompted by Bila acknowledging that Hegseth was eating day-old pizza that had been left on the "Fox & Friends" set overnight, according to Raw Story. "I can't see them, therefore they're not real".

BIlah asked laughing: "So you're becoming immune to all the bacteria?"

"My dad has that theory too", Bila told him.

Hand-washing is one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect from germs and most infections in order to stay disease-free.

Plenty of teachers also mocked his claims with one joking that he'd learn about germs if he spent anytime in a children's classroom: 'Spend some time as a teacher in a kindergarten class, trust me, you'll wash your hands!'

"A single gram of human feces-which is about the weight of a paper clip-can contain one trillion germs", said a spokesman for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Interesting point! Hopefully, Hegseth won't suffocate once he realizes air must not be real because he can't see it either.

It should be noted, according to the CDC handwashing can help prevent illness.

Hegseth confirmed the joke when he retweeted and commented on MSNBC host Chris Hayes' tweet, which said, "he's. pretty clearly joking?"
