“Fox and Friends” weekend co-host Pete Hegseth vented about being “forced” to watch CNN while he was at the airport on Tuesday evening and raged against CNN host Don Lemon in a tweet, calling him a “moron” who spews “liberal orthodoxy.”
And, since I’m at the airport, I’m forced to watch @CNN. So clear—@donlemon really is a moron (who elites pretend is smart and insightful). Nothing he says is interesting—all liberal orthodoxy. #FakeNews

Hegseth was once under consideration to lead the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, but was dropped from consideration after reports about him engaging in extramarital affairs and ethical violations at his veteran’s group surfaced.
Hegseth, who in 2015 hit a Fox News guest with an axe during a lumberjack segment on the show, was at the airport traveling to Israel for Fox Nation, Fox’s new digital streaming channel.
