People aren’t exactly lining up to shake Fox News host Pete Hegseth’s hand.
The Hegster put his fist in it on Sunday when he professed live on “Fox & Friends” he hadn’t washed his hands in 10 years.
The onetime Trump (a noted germophobe) potential pick to lead the Veterans Affairs, said, “My 2019 resolution is to say things on-air that I say off-air. I don’t think I’ve washed my hands for 10 years.”
He noted it was all about building up his robust immune system: “I can’t get sick.”
This provoked much hand-wringing on Twitter, although Hegseth said he was joking, poking fun at hand-sanitizing paranoids.
But sources say colleagues are still giving him a wide berth after he uses the bathroom.
