Ex-Husband Was Banned On Twitter

Pete was banned on Twitter for posting the manifesto of shooter Mohammad Alshamrani

The shooter opened fire at Navy Station Pensacola, which led to the death of three people

Pete had posted screenshots of Alshamrani’s social media accounts with anti-Israel posts

After he was banned on Twitter for the post, he shared the news of being banned through Instagram. He mentioned, 

“If they can ban me, they will ban anyone. We need to fight back.” 

In the past, he had fought terrorists on the battlefield, and now he was fighting for free speech

With this intention, he did not delete the post. 

Pete Hegseth, “It was a life-changer for me.”

Pete Hegseth shared about his first assignment at Fox News. He shared that he has been with Fox News for seven years now. 

One of the first assignments he did on the Fox and Friends team was to do Breakfast With Friends. Pete revealed that when they first asked him to do it, he honestly didn’t get it. 

Pretty soon, he was spotted flipping pancakes backstage. And also says that whenever he was flipping pancakes, he was also trying the local specials, which only took once or twice, Pete said. 

Pete continued saying he had a sincere interest in hearing about which way they were going to vote. 

He realized it was way more than that, as it was an amazing window into the minds and hearts of so many Americans whose voices have not been represented for a long time. 

Lastly, Pete claimed it was a blessing and a life-changer for him.

Hasn’t Pete washed his hands for a decade?

Pete doesn’t think he has washed his hands for a decade. Further saying, not ten minutes, ten hours, or not even ten days. 

Pete again reemphasized and said that, for real, he doesn’t wash his hands ever. 

He continued by saying it’s not exactly the things anyone wanted to listen to at a meal, at work or a party, or in any situation on the Earth. 

When asked about the reason, Pete says he inoculated himself. Also, he replies that Germs are not real because he can’t see them. 

He was pointing to germ as not the real thing. Then Jedediah Bila, co-host of the show, asked Pete if he was becoming immune to all the bacteria? 

On which Pete says, Exactly, he can’t get sick, claiming to alert the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 

Also, later, he shows his hands, saying these hands look clean to him. However, updated news stated that Jaclyn Giuliano reached out, claiming that “Pete was just joking.” 

Later, Pete tells Ben Tobin, writing for USA Today, that we all are on a show and just having fun, and we banter, and maybe I haven’t washed my hands for a decade, Pete added. 

If you see ED and Jedediah’s reaction at that time, they both were laughing like we are on every show, Pete said.
