TV Show Host Admits He Hasn’t Washed His Hands In 10 Years, Netizens React With Disgust

Ever since we started to speak, we’ve oscillated between “speak your mind” and “think before you speak”. And since nobody ever told us which one of them is more appropriate, we continue our dance with the devil every time we open our mouth.

Now, there’s no doubt that we make blunders every single day. But thankfully, there’s nobody to record them. However, the same can’t be said about early morning TV show hosts who have to be charismatic, while fighting to stay awake.

Sadly, Pete Hegseth of Fox News, wasn’t able to fight his urge to say something stupid and he ended up making a confession about his personal hygiene that nobody had asked for.

Apparently his 2019 resolution is to say publicly things that he only says at home. And, by the looks of it, he’s sticking to that promise he has made to himself.

When Twitter user @smittymhs agreed with his stand, Pete posted a hashtag to bring together all non-hand-washers.

Given how washing one’s hands to stay clean is such an universal concept, netizens were surprised and disgusted to see an public figure like Pete promoting the idea to not do it.

However, when journalist Chris Hayes said it’s clear that he’s joking, Pete confirmed that he was just messing with everyone.

First of all, let’s all agree that not washing your hands is gross and horribly unhygienic. Second of all, do you think Pete’s telling the truth that this was all a joke? Or do you think he’s covering up? Let us know in the comments.
