While attempting to discuss a Swedish/Finn study suggesting that couples who enjoy long marriages showed a reduced tendency to develop Alzheimer’s disease, Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade cheerfully reveals to the world that:
a) He is an idiot who has no idea what the word “species” means.
b) He is ridiculously racist.
c) He is a bumbling, inarticulate buffoon barely capable of stringing together two words in a row, let alone making a cogent verbal argument.
Transcript of the relevant section of the exchange follows, Kilmeade’s statements are in bold (and yes, it was as painful to transcribe as it is to read.)
BK: It’s amazing they thought about doing this study in this… uh, by oh they… by interviewing people in the sev… in the 1970s and the 1980s…
DB: Little [unclear] thing?
BK: … the average age is 50… and they say that they keep it together. I find this, uh, I find this somewhat…
DB: Go ahead.
BK: … different. Leave it to the Finns and Swedes to come up with something…
GC: (laughs) Don’t get me down! [unclear]
BK: I… because that-that’s a… we are… we’re… we’re a g-… we’re… we keep marrying other species and other ethnics, and-and- other… but-
GC: -are you sure you’re not suffering from some of the, um, the causes of dementia right now?
BK: -I mean the Swedes… see, the problem is that… the Swedes, the Swedes have, uh, pure genes-
BK: -because they marry other Swedes. ‘Cuz that’s the rule. Finland… Finns marry other Finns-so they have a pure society. In America we marry everybody-
BK: -so we marry Italians, and Irish-
DB: So this study does not apply?
BK: Does not apply to us!
DB: Huh. You are a scientist-
GC: (sarcastically) Amazing deduction, Kilmeade! (laughs)
BK: That’s are… those are… those are…
DB: -scientist… right… DOCTOR Kilmeade…
BK: That’s how I feel.
