This Fox News presenter hasn’t washed his hands in 10 years – the only 5 replies you need
Fox News presenter Pete Hegseth went viral after he told viewers how he hadn’t washed his hands in 10 years because he doesn’t believe in germs.
And the reason he doesn’t believe in germs is because he doesn’t believe in anything he can’t see.
Fox News’ @PeteHegseth admits, unprompted, that he hasn’t washed his hands in 10 years.
“Germs are not a real thing,” Pete says. “I can’t see them, therefore they’re not real.” pic.twitter.com/9hsAb9YA9j

I once worked with a sous chef who told me that washing your hands, showering and cleaning your body was making humanity weaker. These people are real and they’re very stupid. https://t.co/q2BTp7YrDv
