Fox News Star Responds To Hot Mic Incident

( On Tuesday, former White House Coronavirus Task Force adviser Larry Kudlow was caught describing comments by Vice President Kamala Harris as “bullshit” in a hot mic moment, causing widespread outrage (and applause). The former Trump adviser believed his microphone was off when he called out Harris’s claims that the Trump administration’s vaccine distribution plans were lacking.

When a clip of Harris attacking the Trump administration and wrongly claiming the Biden administration was “starting from scratch” on distributing the vaccine, Kudlow could be heard saying, “bullsh*t! bullsh*t! bullsh*t!”

The mic feed was quickly cut off by producers, prompting anchor Sandra Smith to comment, “That is Larry Kudlow weighing in…wow.”

Well, at least he was telling the truth.

Later that day, Kudlow appeared on his new Fox Business Network show to address the comments.

“Earlier on Fox News Channel, I made some comments about that clip, you might have read about it, if not you could Google it,” he said.

“I may have said a bad word,” he added. “I’m not usually a guy who swears but what the Vice President said burned me up and it’s simply not true, okay? It is somewhere between cognitive dissonance and an outright falsehood lie.”

Kudlow doubled down on his calls of “bullsh*t,” explaining how Harris simply falsified the claim that the Trump administration didn’t have plans in place to distribute the vaccine nationally…despite the Trump administration having successfully facilitated the quickest turnaround of a vaccine for a novel virus in history.

Kudlow expanded on the issue of vaccine distribution, speaking honestly about how the Trump administration oversaw plans.

“Not everything went perfectly,” he admitted, before describing how the rollout plan was a “triumph” after administering a million vaccines by former President Trump’s final day in office.

Interestingly, Dr. Anthony Fauci, also from the White House Coronavirus Task Force, defended Vice President Harris.

“What I think the Vice President is referring to is, the actual plan of getting the vaccine doses into people’s arms was really rather vague. I mean, it was not a well-coordinated plan,” he claimed.

This, from the same man that once said people shouldn’t wear masks, then said they should, then said there was no evidence that double masking would work, and then said that people should wear two masks.

Perhaps it’s one of the more turbulent starts for a new Fox show, but it definitely looks like Kudlow will be a straight shooter on the network.
