Fox News host Pete Hegseth doesn’t believe germs are a real thing.
Of course, most people were appalled, though Hegseth did receive some support from other non-hand washers.
Though now, Hegseth is admitting that he was “clearly” joking, saying the whole point was to call out “germ-obsessors” to lighten up. He said, “My half-hearted commentary to the point is, we live in a society where people walk around with bottles of Purell in their pockets, and they sanitize 19,000 times a day as if that’s going to save their life. I take care of myself and all that, but I don’t obsess over everything all the time.”
