Fox and Friends is a painfully ridiculous “news” show with three of the dumbest hosts in the history of television, but this clip takes them to new heights of buffoonery. The two male hosts (Steve Doocy was not there, unfortunately, so he had a guest host) take a “manhood test” of changing a tire and fail miserably.
Kilmeade and Brown teamed up once again for changing a tire on a car that had been loaned by Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
Confusion immediately ensued as Brown began cranking the jack while Kilmeade sent lug nuts rolling across the pavement.
“This is what a man does, not just a male,” Van Orden noted.
“Whoa, watch it, Brian!” Brown exclaimed as the car began to roll forward, suggesting that the parking brake had not been engaged.
“Jack it up?” Kilmeade asked.
“No, it’s jacked,” Brown noted.
“Okay, so lug nuts are out,” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck chimed in.
“Watch your feet, Elisabeth,” Brown warned. “The jack is falling.”
“The jack is falling?” Kilmeade said while attempted to push the car back onto the jack.
“The jack is falling,” Brown repeated.
“We’ve got teamwork going on right now,” Hasselbeck remarked.
“This is amazing,” Van Orden said, turning to the camera.
Meanwhile, Brown furiously cranked the jack counterclockwise to lower car. However, all but one of the lugs had been removed and the host concluded that he might damage the vehicle by lowering it further.
They finally bail on the whole thing and go back to the studio. Now let’s first say that this “manhood test” is just inane from the get go. The whole idea that one should turn to a Navy SEAL to teach you how to be a man is too stupid for words, especially with the dipshit Navy SEAL saying things like “being a man is not about what you are but about who you are.” *headdesk* But Jesus, these guys just humiliate themselves on national TV. It’s a joy to watch.
