For Pete's Sake
Many people on the far right don't believe in science, considering it more of a "faith-based system,", so it's only appropriate that "Fox News" host Pete Hegseth became their poster boy this morning when explaining on air that he hasn't washed his hands in 10 years, “Germs are not a real thing.

It's also worth noting that Trump was recently quoted as saying "Nancy Pelosi will never see my tax returns." Apparently he believes in the Pete Hegseth Theory of Life, where if you don't see something it doesn't exist.
