'Germs Are not a Real Thing'

"Therefore the're not real", Hegseth said.

Pete Hegseth of Fox News, made the startling confession live on air and said that 'germs weren't a real thing'. In contrast with Hegseth, Trump is a self-proclaimed "germaphobe" who reportedly has a disdain for handshakes and a passion for frequent hand washing.

Adding that his hands "look pretty clean to me".

Revolting: '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", Hegseth said, inexplicably.

On Sunday's "Fox and Friends", hosts Ed Henry, Jedediah Bila and Hegseth were all joking about Hegseth eating old pizza on set.

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

"I can't get sick", he declared. "My dad has that theory too". Hegseth notoriously hit a West Point drummer with a misdirected ax during a live segment from Times Square in NY in 2015.

Then he apologized for "grossing" out viewers.

Last year, it was reported that the TV personality was Mr Trump's leading pick to take over the Department of Veteran Affairs, which would have left him responsible for the health and wellbeing of millions of Americans.

However: Fox News spokesperson Jaclyn Giuliano told USA Today that Hegseth "was joking".

Those posting on Twitter were very keen to point out just how revolting Hegseth's proclamation was. Hegseth served with the US Army in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and may well have maintained a stricter hygiene regimen while on duty before returning to a somewhat less sanitary life as a civilian.

However, the Centers for Disease Control disagrees, its advice online reminds people that "regular hand-washing particularly before and after certain activities, is one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick, and prevent the spread of germs to others".
