Fox News host Pete Hegseth has revealed that he hasn’t washed his has hands in a decade. Hosting the weekend show Fox & Friends, Hegseth said, “As I told you, my 2019 resolution is to say things on air that I say off the air. I don’t think I’ve washed my hands for 10 years. Really, I don’t really wash my hands.”
Pete Hegseth revealed this bizarre habit when co-hosts Ed Henry and Jedediah Bila were discussing about eating a day old pizza. “Yesterday was National Pizza Day, which means it’s national pizza weekend, which means Pizza Hut lasts for a long time,” Hegseth said.
The host also added that the infectious microorganisms didn’t exist simply because they were invisible to his naked eye. “I inoculate myself. Germs are not a real thing. I can’t see them, therefore they’re not real. I can’t get sick,” he added.
The video clip of the bizarre confession was later shared by journalist Aaron Rupar on Twitter.

Remind me never to accept a dinner invitation to his house. Or shake his hand.
