Skip to comments.Gretchen Carlson Fox and Friends Co-Host Cuts Off Interview, Man Calls Her Miss America [VIDEO]
Posted on 09/20/2012 7:03:13 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia
Gretchen Carlson was "Punk'd" on Monday on "Fox and Friends" by a young man who claimed to be unemployed and disappointed about Barack Obama.
The young man, Max Rice, was giggling at the cameras even before the interview started, hinting that something may not be right with him.
But Carlson went on with the interview.
"Hello, Miss USA, it's an honor," Rice said.
"Miss America," Carlson corrected him politely. "But close." (She won the 1989 Miss America Pageant while she was representing her native Minnesota.)
"Miss America, Miss Universe in my book," he said laughing and looking off camera.
"Oh ok, well thank you very much," she replied changing the topic.
"Now, tell me your story. You believed in the hope and change of President Obama, and so you voted for him. Now tell me about the next 3 1/2 years," she asked.
"Oh, I was a huge Obama supporter in 2008," Rice said drinking a Starbucks coffee. "I met him in third grade, when I was little."

People are very slow to grow up these days.
Glenn Beck said this morning that MSNBC Andrea Mitchell is beating FOX and Oreilly in ratings now. Beck has not said it but it is probably that so many conservatives have stopped watching FOX and many of the Obama base are now waking up and tuning in MSNBC.
Wish I’d run into that snot nosed punk somewhere.
wow. What an embarrassment
Conservatives have jobs. They don’t have time to watch goofy morning shows.
The media’s continuing attempt to form the opinion of the masses bite’s FoxNews on the @$$!
They need to stop profiling the crowd, looking for the scrubby fat white guy in the wife-beater.
Aside from beck’s sour grapes, from my vantage (no TV) it sounds like Fox has been leaning too far to the left lately.
That would tend to reduce the number of viewers. When I did have TV I nearly smashed it due to that shepard smith creep.

I saw this yesterday.
This guy was a total @$$.
Whoever recruited him at FOX should be fired for not vetting him.
Carlson is a first rate classy lady and a real sharp, intelligent newswoman. She didn’t dismiss him over the mistake about her former title which had NOTHING to do with the subject at hand but was thinly veiled effort to put her down. It didn’t work. It was obvious who the jerk was and it was him.
She handled it appropriately once she realized he was plant.
Too bad they didn’t have the vaudeville “hook” to pull this jerk off the camera.
I’ve stopped watching FOX for the most part. Too many confrontation shows with people yelling back and forth or boring personality shows like O’reilly and not enough actual news. The only news I ever get is from the ticker across the bottom. I’d rather watch CNN on mute so I can at least get video of news events from around the world.
FOX News may have 'jumped the shark' over mittens
Fair and balanced is Juan McCain
Ive had enough of the wisdom of Bill Kristal, Chas. Krauthammer, Ted Baxter, Bret Beahr, Toyko Rove, Ann Coulter, Chris Wallace, Sean Wannabe (who just showcases liberals), Dana Parino,
Brit Hume, Shep Smith, Judge Jeanene, Alan Comes, Tamara Holder, Lamont Hill, Bob Beckel, Juan Williams, Whoraldo, et. al. all acting the part of the Romney cheerleading squad
Name ONE true conservative on FOX
There is clearly a hunger and a market for honest news and honest conservative news
Me too. I love Gretchen Carlson - she right up there with Monica Crowley etc.
She looks just as good, even better now!!
What is the big deal? The guy’s an idiot.
Krauthammer isn’t perfect but on the economy and foreign affairs he is dead on.
Hannity is a GREAT defender of conservatives. There are others like Carlson and Doocey.
Agree with you about most of the others though.
Also agree with you about Fair and Balances. We don;t need Fair and Balanced. There are a dozen or more major news organs which nothing but leftist propaganda. We need equivalents on the right.
MSNBC beat Fox 2 days in a row in the 24-54 category on the days of the 47 video debacle. It’s just 2 days. I don’t know if it’s a trend set in cement.
He made me worried that the movie “Idiocracy” was a documentary
I bet he couldn’t wait to get home to watch “Ow, My Balls”
And you just took that at face value or what? Does Screwface go head-to-head with Phonejob? No she does not. Did Fox win all-viewer matchups? Yes they did. Does Phonejob still beat FatEd like a gong? Yes he does. Did Hannity beat Madcow in all-viewer? Yes he did. Did Madcow beat Hannity once if you drill down to a limited-viewer segment? Yes she did.
Is that Gretchen?????????
And I thought Megyn Kelly was my favorite
Holy crap, who put that idiot on the air?

Carlson is a first rate classy lady and a real sharp, intelligent newswoman.
She is definitely smart, but I would not call her a “classy lady”. I always feel as it someone should toss her a yard or two of fabric to cover up some of her flesh.
So disgusted with FOX for about the last year or so. There was a time when my husband and I would watch every morning. Now, it seems that they have decided that they want to snag the leftist, Hollywood-loving types. He has taken to watching CNN just as often, and I have taken to tuning all of it out. But I do still watch Gretchen.
No that isn’t Gretchen
The 'news' channel has become nothing but barking heads as a forum to let liberals spout the most incredable talking points.
I keep having this dream where me and Gretchen Carlson are in one of those heart-shaped pools at a Sandals Resort and things are just starting to get good when Bill O’Reilly pops up and yells “The spin stops here!”, and I wake up screaming.
Max is another Basement Bob wantabee.
I don’t think that’s Gretchen. She won in 1989 and those are more recent dresses and swimsuit.
The ill-logic of that is staggering.
O’Reilly has close to a million viewers, Andi girl about 50K, and Beck says she is now beating him in the ratings war?
Personally I wouldn't take Beck's word as gospel. He tends to, um, "exaggerate" the truth sometimes, as both Andrew Breitbart and Mark Levin found out. Just this week he told about Mitt Romney anonymously supplying a VA hospital with milk for two years; Beck said his people dug up the story, and that he would make the country aware of it. The truth is, the story had already been documented in "The Real Romney", which I read this summer.
Not sure who the ladies in the top photo are, but the bottom photo is of Carrie Prejean.
enstarz has been hacked ...
O’Reilly still thinks obama is a good guy. Always gives him the benefit of the doubt. The most educated are the most stupid.
Is that Gretchen?????????
She was Miss America in 1989. I don’t think they were wearing string bikinies in 1989.It wasn’t until 1997 that two-piece suits were allowed.
WHAT????? THAT’S HER??????
Yep — definitely not her fault.
That pretty much sums up his whole show, “I found out something that no one knows, here’s a snip-it, I’ll provide evidence later”, only problem is people have known it for days, or weeks or years or centuries already.
He really is a ledgen in his own mind.
How can Andrea Mitchell be beating O’Reilly in the ratings? She comes on in the early afternoon and O’Reilly comes on later in the evening, right?
I got so sick of that when I listened to his radio show. My husband would sometimes tune him in at work, but he said, “I can’t stand listening to that guy’s crap anymore.”
F&F is getting difficult to watch during the week. I can still stand the weekend crew, but the weekday group is simply tedious.
Anything after 8AM is simply a commercial for whatever product the are shilling for these days.
Kilmeade is taking the wise-guy thing too far, and the Scarecrow guy just spews talking points.
Now, I am not saying the other shows are watchable— tried to watch the Today show the other day when we had a house guest (yes, I have to respect a house guest’s watching habits.) It was unwatchable. Period. And it wasn’t that news chicks fault that show sucked—because she was not on that day. Its just horrible.
I watch CNBC until whatever report comes out at 8:30—then off to listen to the radio in my in-home office.
Just as well...I am getting more work done, earlier in the day. More time to walk my puppy.
Wow you sound like a prude. Most guys like legs and thighs and short skirts on women.
Here is the real Gretchen as Miss Minnesota and then as Miss America 1989:
I believe that is Carrie Prejean, not Gretchen Carlson.
This is Gretchen:
O,no,you didn’t post the wrong photo!
