'Germs are not a real thing'

However the stance is not reflected by public health organisations

Fox News host Pete Hegseth made the declaration yesterday while he and his co-hosts discussed the issue of eating day-old pizza that hasn't been refrigerated.

'Pizza Hut lasts for a long time, ' Hegseth replied, justifying himself.

Speaking with his co-hosts, Hegseth said one of his goals for 2019 was to be as honest on the air as he is backstage.

"I don't think I've washed my hands for 10 years", he blurted out, prompting hysterical laughter from his colleagues.

"I inoculate myself", added the Harvard and Princeton graduate.

A "Fox & Friends" host is facing criticism for saying that germs aren't real, even though he was reportedly joking. He told them, "I can't get sick". "Therefore the're not real", Hegseth said.

Hegseth argued that his unsanitary habit leaves him immune to sickness.

Once it was revealed that Cardi B . was the victor of that category, Ariana Grande made her thoughts over Mac Miller's loss known.

"Look it, these hands look pretty clean to me", Hegseth said, showing off his hands.

In repsonse to someone who shared his sentiment on Twitter, Hesgeth used the hashtag #DontWash, before following up with a second tweet sharing a USA Today article about the on-air admission and writing: "To paraphrase the President from an hour ago: The Media is so self-righteous and ANGRY!"

One BBC reader, Steve M, said: "I didn't think I would ever say this - I agree with Donald Trump on this!"

U.S. health and disease watchdog, The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, dedicates several pages of its website to hand-washing, underscoring its importance in preventing the spread of germs. It might be a good start to start going back to what we taught you.

Hand-washing is one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect from germs and most infections in order to stay disease-free.

Those posting on Twitter were very keen to point out just how revolting Hegseth's proclamation was.
