'I inoculate myself, ' he continued.

Bila said that Hegseth would eat anything that's not nailed down. "I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as much as possible".

Hegseth went on to say in the clip, "Really, I don't wash my hands ever". And by using the depressingly enormous platform that is Fox News to share this misinformation, he's put us all in a position where we're actually having to have a conversation about the reality of germs and the importance of washing your hands, like we're all back in preschool-preschool in the year 1870. "Therefore they're not real", Hegseth insisted.

One co-host, smiling, exclaimed, "Someone help me", nearly as though she was providing an adequate button on which to end this conversation.

The revelation came after co-hosts Ed Henry and Jedediah Bila questioned Hegseth's off-camera consumption of pizza left out after National Pizza Day, on Saturday.

Bila added that Hegseth was developing an immunity to bacteria, rolling her eyes as he remarked, "Exactly!"

'Ewwwwww! Not something to brag about, ' wrote one.

Boutier Vic Open win ends long French drought on LPGA Tour

He also implied he was just goofing around when MSNBC correspondent Chris Hayes tweeted, "he's.... pretty clearly joking?"

Early on Tuesday morning, Hegseth responded by paraphrasing recent comments from the US President, implying his on-air statements were a joke.

He elaborated in an interview with USA Today.

"We're on a show and we have fun and we banter and I'm like, eh, 'you know, maybe I haven't washed my hands for 10 years, '" Hegseth told the outlet.

Joke or not, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, washing your hands is vital in the prevention of illnesses and the spread of infections.

Pete Hegseth said he is confident germs aren't real because he can't see them.

They further note that everyone should wash their hands before preparing or eating food.
