Fox & Friends Has All Sorts of Problems With These Olympic Team Berets

by Jim Newell

The thought-free muppets who host Fox News’ illiterate dementia variety hour Fox and Friends briefly mentioned the actual news nugget about the unveiled U.S. Olympic Team outfits today — they’re made in China, har har — but spent considerably more time examining the team’s hat wear: berets. Like all the fruity poets and mimes in France wear, amirite? Just imagine if these berets were green. How foo-foo mcgay would green berets be?

Steve Doocy cut right to the bone with his analysis. Why can’t les compétiteurs des États-Unis wear baseball caps or cowboy hats? Why can’t they put apple fucking pie on their heads?

DOOCY: Should the American team be wearing a beret? Why not a baseball cap? Why not a cowboy hat like when we went to Calgary?

After minutes of such mockery, Doocy does offer this counterpoint:

Fox’s mockery of the “French” headgear continued until they received “a lot of email” from viewers pointing out the military connection to the Olympic team’s headgear, forcing co-host Steve Doocy to make a disclaimer: “There is a team that’s already wearing a Beret for America, and that’s the special forces guys, and they look great.”

What a horrendous television show (that we watch because Morning Joe isn’t as hate-funny and also we hate ourselves.)

ManchuCandidate July 11, 2012 at 4:03 pm

Yeah, oops. Come on Steve Doocy and Not Steve Doocy. I dare you to tell the Green Berets, SEALs and Delta their berets are foo foo McGuay. I dare you.

Or Mary Tyler Moore!

Fare la Volpe July 11, 2012 at 4:16 pm

MTM vs. Douchy would be the most one-sided celebrity deathmatch ever. She'd mop the floor with him.

Negropolis July 12, 2012 at 1:40 am

Is MTM gonna have to cut a bitch?!

SayItWithWookies July 11, 2012 at 4:11 pm

Shit, I dare Douchey to say that to the girl in the Prince song.

CommieLibunatic July 11, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Word. Fox 'n' Friends, will you explain to me why you hate the troops?

The words of Man struggle to capture this utter stupidity.

ph7 July 11, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Everything Doocy knows about military uniforms he learned from watching F-Troop.

Pat Tillman: faggy french guy

SorosBot July 11, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Well he was a liberal and an atheist, so not a real American then.

LionHeartSoyDog July 11, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Uh Oh!
Conspiracy Nut Alert!

Pat Tillman was studying Socialism(!).
And that may be why he was shot in the forehead at close range.

and i am serious.

Negropolis July 12, 2012 at 1:41 am

They already think that without the beret. Pat had a lot of sharp opinions about America.

ChernobylSoup July 11, 2012 at 4:04 pm

Wife beaters with Chef-boyardee stains would have been more representative.

actor212 July 11, 2012 at 4:07 pm

And that's just for the ladies.

No, ladies go topless.

WHY DOES FOX NEWS HATE THE TROOPS!?!!

SayItWithWookies July 11, 2012 at 4:05 pm

And we should rename french fries douchefries. And french toast should be called french Romney.

anniegetyerfun July 11, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Delicious toasty bread libel!

Beowoof July 11, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Oh I think Mayo on White Bread should be called the Rmoney.

AbandonHope July 11, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Whoa, whoa, whoa, mayo!? Ease up on the spices there, mister!

Negropolis July 12, 2012 at 1:42 am

And french toast should be called french Romney.

That is good, most good, mon wookie.

UnholyMoses July 11, 2012 at 4:05 pm

So Doocy has the hots for special ops dudes.

Huh.

Guess he doesn't want to see or hear them coming …

SayItWithWookies July 11, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Then he should just lie facedown on the bed and leave the door unlocked.

OzoneTom July 11, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Top hats FTW!

Yea, no real American has ever worn a beret

WhatTheHeck July 11, 2012 at 4:24 pm

Know who else didn’t wear a beret?
Jeebus, thats who. He wore his hair too long to fit in a beret.

schvitzatura July 11, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Or this one.

Terminate Doocy's gig on F&F. With extreme prejudice…

More Meta than OT: How does this post state that it had 5 comments, but only 2 views?

Fucking math—how does it work?

anniegetyerfun July 11, 2012 at 4:38 pm

That's for the people who aren't actually reading the article, but just say the first thing that comes to their mind in the comments.

Oh, that's just me?

gurukalehuru July 11, 2012 at 5:24 pm

No, I do that too. All the information you need is in the headline.

Butch_Wagstaff July 11, 2012 at 6:46 pm

If it's anything related to the gay, all I have to do is read the headline. The comments write themselves.

RedneckMuslin July 11, 2012 at 4:06 pm

No gold this year. They want to look like cheese eating surrender monkeys then all is hopeless.

Generation[redacted] July 11, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Look, I understand Doocey's hatred of The Green Berets. The movie sucked. It was fat old John Wayne pretending Alabama was Vietnam and asking why the local villagers don't speak English.

CrunchyKnee July 11, 2012 at 4:17 pm

Last time I was in Alabama they didn't speak english.

lisawines July 11, 2012 at 5:59 pm

What's this about a Romboto gain on Independents? "Independents" like Baba Ganoush O'Reily?

Maman July 11, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Doesn't most of the army wear those kinds of berets? http://www.army.mil/asu/
Why does does FOX News hate America?

Chet Kincaid July 11, 2012 at 4:24 pm

I can't believe how fucking stupid these FOX and friends mopes are.

BerkeleyBear July 11, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Yep, and the switch actually pissed off some Special Forces types since they saw it as all the the lesser troops getting in on their cool club. But they still get to wear their own fancy versions.

DemmeFatale July 11, 2012 at 7:20 pm

I love the "South Park-ey" vibe of that video!

Texan_Bulldog July 11, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Ummm…not to mention every damn soldier in the US Army wears them (unless they're wearing Kevlar helmets to help stop bullets).

Chet Kincaid July 11, 2012 at 4:28 pm

It just gives the lie to the implied super-patriotism of FOX on-air "talent" that they have never bothered themselves to look at their own news footage or an Army website to find out that every fucking soldier gets a beret!

Ohforcripessake July 11, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Now there's an idea! The US Olympic Team should wear kevlar helmets!

Tundra Grifter July 11, 2012 at 4:08 pm
actor212 July 11, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Um y'know, Doocy? You might want to rethink the whole "beret" issue.

Cuz, um, Mitt Romney approves.

(Disclaimer: I only know this because I own one)

Lazy Media July 11, 2012 at 4:36 pm

That's no beret, that's a tocque, eh.

viennawoods13 July 11, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Sir, I have known toques. I have worn toques. That, sir, is no toque.

Don't forget the Crocs!

With socks!

Fare la Volpe July 11, 2012 at 4:18 pm

And giant chunky pedophile glasses, because they still want the hipsters to watch ironically.

CrunchyKnee July 11, 2012 at 4:19 pm

Why not, it seems to be the formal attire in America for most situations?

Oh please. Pick.

Butch_Wagstaff July 11, 2012 at 6:50 pm

I got 99 problems, and a beret ain't one.

el_donaldo July 11, 2012 at 4:09 pm

I think they should go full American. Wear cheese hats. Complemented by Big Gulp hats. Extra-large-order-of-fries hats. Giant-stack-of-pancakes-with-a-side-of-bacon hats.

actor212 July 11, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Or those beer helmets!

Generation[redacted] July 11, 2012 at 4:22 pm

No one hat represents America. We are a melting pot. In fact, a sombrero filled with chips and melted cheese sounds pretty good right now.

el_donaldo July 11, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Mmmmm. Nacho hat.

Jus_Wonderin July 11, 2012 at 4:26 pm

I get this image of a horrible munching death at the petting zoo. I don't know why.

It's all Obama's fault.

johnnyzhivago July 11, 2012 at 4:10 pm

I actually think the entire Army wears berets – wasn't there a controversy among Rangers when everyone got them?

Of course when would a Fox host ever have met an actual US service member?

Crank_Tango July 11, 2012 at 4:16 pm

In their defense, it would be hard to see the kind of hat someone is wearing through a glory hole.

Lazy Media July 11, 2012 at 4:39 pm

You are correct on both points. The Rangers used to wear black berets, and switched to tan when the entire Army got black berets. Paratroopers wear red, Special Forces green, Rangers tan, everybody else black.

That's kind of a sharp blazer, btw; be picking up one of those cheap on eBay in about six months.

Barb July 11, 2012 at 4:10 pm

That's gayer than a clutch bag at the Tony Awards. I mean, the Fox & Friends crew and not the kicky little beret`.

Baconzgood July 11, 2012 at 4:11 pm

How does this effect Bristol Palin?

Goonemeritus July 11, 2012 at 4:11 pm

I did like Doocy’s idea of competitors going topless it might even get me to watch archery.

Generation[redacted] July 11, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Synchronized trampoline. It's a real sport!

actor212 July 11, 2012 at 4:38 pm

Synchronized swimming might actually pull….ratings.

Negropolis July 12, 2012 at 1:46 am

God, why won't they add trampolining to the Olympics, already?

Hera Sent Me July 11, 2012 at 4:11 pm

We should take up a collection to buy appropriate headgear for Fox News talking heads.

Dunce caps can't be too expensive, even if they're made in the USA.

SayItWithWookies July 11, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Give a FOX host a dunce cap, and he's got a dunce cap for a day — teach a FOX host to make his own dunce cap and you've got a potentially serious accidental scissors wound for the rest of his life.

Wadisay July 11, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Do they have hats that look like buttocks?

bikerlaureate July 11, 2012 at 4:50 pm

Would they cover the faces, though? And the mouths?

lisawines July 11, 2012 at 6:06 pm

I think they should all sport a Fez.

CapnRadio July 11, 2012 at 4:11 pm

Fuck hats altogether. You wanna be a REAL American, Olympic athlete? Wear a goddamned Kardashian on your head.

UnholyMoses July 11, 2012 at 4:22 pm

I thought they were more "lap" accessories, so to type.

CapnRadio July 11, 2012 at 4:23 pm

My bad. I didn't specify which head.

SorosBot July 11, 2012 at 4:11 pm

"Why not a baseball cap? Why not a cowboy hat like when we went to Calgary?"

Wait, so Fox wants our team to look like either a bunch of fratboy assholes or giant morons?

MissTaken July 11, 2012 at 4:15 pm

'either a bunch of fratboy assholes or giant morons?'

Fratboy assholes and giant morans are not mutually exclusive.

SorosBot July 11, 2012 at 4:29 pm

True, baseball and cowboy hats just indicate different breeds of moranic assholes.

Fare la Volpe July 11, 2012 at 4:18 pm

I'm amazed they didn't suggest sombreros so we could look like assholes at spring break Cancun.

actor212 July 11, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Exactly!

anniegetyerfun July 11, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Where I come from, if you ain't both of these things, you ain't shit.

Willardbot9000_V2.5 July 11, 2012 at 8:32 pm

wait…what's your problem with baseball hats? I played baseball for nearly my entire youth. Besides, Doocy is a dumb pussy…everyone knows real 'Merikans sport NASCAR trucker hats. The actual uniform would be NASCAR trucker-hat, stained wifebeater with long sleeved flanel and gold plated chain with a cross on the end. Then they could have a pair of Wranglers with a giant gold belt buckle and torn up black steel-toed workboots…now that's a real 'Merikan. Just saying…but I think you're being insultingly generic with the whole baseball cap thing…

Sharkey July 11, 2012 at 4:12 pm

F'ing frogs on a stick, why would anyone watch that show.

Baconzgood July 11, 2012 at 4:12 pm

I think to be truely american they should come in on hover rounds waving truck nutz.

UnholyMoses July 11, 2012 at 4:23 pm

I'm with you on this.

But only if they make truck nuts into the medals.

el_donaldo July 11, 2012 at 4:12 pm

I think someday soon Curtis Sliwa is going to whoop Steve Doocy's ass.

DonnyKerabotsos July 11, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Steve Doocey's preferred headgear is the asshat. And he wears it well.

BigSkullF*ckingDog July 11, 2012 at 4:12 pm

They're not berets, they're freedom hats.

PuckStopsHere July 11, 2012 at 4:15 pm

Please tell me the gang over there at Fox used this to make a joke about the Gay Olympics. Please.

johnnyzhivago July 11, 2012 at 4:15 pm

How about Top Hats, tuxedos, walking sticks and have Mitt-cash stuffed into their pockets and orifices? They should also act cockily as if the games are fixed and sneer and refuse to play with the poorer countries.

What could be more American?

Gopherit July 11, 2012 at 4:15 pm

Fuck-n-a, Bubba! Doocy's right again. We need truckers hats, wife-beaters, and jorts. MURIKA!!!

SexySmurf July 11, 2012 at 4:17 pm

What kind of hat will Steve Doocy be wearing when he competes in the Special Olympics?

Oh yeah, I went there. I fucking live there.

Baconzgood July 11, 2012 at 4:18 pm

They're not berets! They're "Freedom Fedoras" damn it!!!!!!

freakishlywrong July 11, 2012 at 4:18 pm

I will be finally happy when the union thugs who film that shit, catch Doochy and Killjoy buttfucking in the dressing room.

mavenmaven July 11, 2012 at 4:18 pm

Though my favorite line is when she says "you have to pronounce it [berets] the French way". What would the American way to pronounce it be, "bear-it"?

It used to be worse. It used to be from Canada.

PuckStopsHere July 11, 2012 at 4:19 pm

It's ironic that Fox would ask it's viewers, "What do you think?' since there entire reason for being is to tell their viewers what to think.

Biel_ze_Bubba July 11, 2012 at 4:35 pm

First they tell them, then there's a quiz. What's your problem?

Negropolis July 12, 2012 at 1:50 am

To be fair, this is exactly what Ed Schultz does. lol I love his +90% results agreeing with what he just set up.

sullivanst July 11, 2012 at 4:20 pm

Vaguely amused by the confidence with which they declare their entirely Americanized pronunciation to be the how you "have to pronounce it … because that's the French way".

poorgradstudent July 11, 2012 at 4:21 pm

Can we just talk about how boring the Olympics are and how crazy the IOC is about copyrights (they're even shutting down clips of NBC shows on YouTube that happen to show the rings logo) and mostly about how boring the Olympics are. It's a rare opportunity to unite conservatives and liberals.

SorosBot July 11, 2012 at 4:34 pm

I haven't watched the Olympics since the one twenty years ago, way back when I was in high school. Not missing much.

Biel_ze_Bubba July 11, 2012 at 4:38 pm

Hah. Every time an American fails to win gold, a thousand wingtards will be foaming at the mouth about how it's Obama's fault.

anniegetyerfun July 11, 2012 at 9:55 pm

I remember my dad pulling me in front of the TV when I was, like, 12 and saying "Annie, you need to watch this. It's the Olympics, and they are special because they only happen once every four years."

As far as I can tell, that is the ONLY thing remarkable about the Olympics, from a viewer's standpoint.

MissTaken July 11, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Needz moar dressage horsey hats.

SorosBot July 11, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Ah dressage, making rhythmic gymnastics and ballroom dancing look like legitimate sports.

Chichikovovich July 11, 2012 at 4:39 pm

That's putting it mildly. It even makes ordinary equestrian jumping look like a legitimate sport.

Biel_ze_Bubba July 11, 2012 at 4:39 pm

It would be OK, if they gave the medals to the horses, instead of to the horses' asses.

smokefilledroommate July 11, 2012 at 4:25 pm

If Douchy had his way, the Olympic Village would be a trailer park.

DrunkIrishman July 11, 2012 at 4:28 pm

These people are fucking morons.

Back in 2002, when Salt Lake hosted the Olympics, the Olympic team wore these berets. They were so fucking popular in red Utah that prices spiked from $20 to $100 and they instantly became a collectors item. If you had one, you could probably get any woman to do anything to you. If you didn't, you were shunned like a leper, or Mitt Romney at last call.

They were huge. They looked good. They were stylish. Trendy. People loved 'em.

They started here. In Utah. Back in '02. And red state asswipes gobbled 'em up like they were the last Prozac on the market.

Theywontlisten July 11, 2012 at 5:29 pm

Obama's fault

timbo71351 July 11, 2012 at 4:29 pm

Steve Doocy may be the dumbest motherfucker on TV — dumber than any member of the Jersey Shore cast. I'm halfway convinced he's a performance artist working along with Jon Stewart.

emmelemm July 11, 2012 at 4:29 pm

"foo foo mcgay" is my new favorite phrase and I look forward to using it whenever possible.

Baconzgood July 11, 2012 at 4:37 pm

That's so foo foo mcgay to say that.

emmelemm July 11, 2012 at 6:12 pm

I know you are, but what am I?

This coming from a guy you just know was disappointed when he found out the urban sombrero only existed in a sitcom.

Can't the editors find any stories about politicians assfucking interns, like in the old days? These stories about Fox news just bum me out.

anniegetyerfun July 11, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Well, if we wore cowboy hats to Calgary, then we need some proper British headwear for London. Um, bowlers? The giant hats that the ladies were to Ascot?

BigSkullF*ckingDog July 11, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Girls wear crowns, boys wear those tall police hats.

They'll wear a fez; fezzes are cool.

The owners of Akbar and Jeff's Compact Disk Hut agree 100%

Because they're disk-shaped and because we have made a compact with the devil.

Next they will be arguing that we should have our soldiers go back to steel pots, because Kevlar is for wussies.

Tomorrow the Faux crew will all be wearing berets and bitching because Obama isn't wearing one to support the team.

As I recall, and perhaps I don't drink quite as much as these guys, perhpas the most famous photo of Pat Tillman had him sporting one of those Frenchy hats. Zoot Allures!

anniegetyerfun July 11, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Fox N Friends are just jealous because berets won't fit over the special helmets that they have to don as soon as they are off the air.

Hammiepants July 11, 2012 at 5:07 pm

The fucking bullshit these dumbasses get their panties in a wad about never ceases to amaze me. Honestly, HATS? Y'all are clutching your pearls over HATS? Jesus Christo.

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 11, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Speaking of which, you know who speaks French and avoided a war?

LetUsBray July 11, 2012 at 6:33 pm

Okay, "Hitler" is definitely not gonna work here.

Uh….why is my comment "waiting to be approved", Wonkette? I didn't use the Palin simile, or threaten to skull-frack anybody…so what the hell?

Theywontlisten July 11, 2012 at 5:34 pm

They should wear I'm with Stoopid T shirts

Nostrildamus July 11, 2012 at 5:48 pm

I don't think the American Olympic team should wear les pantalons either.

emmelemm July 11, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Nude, just as the Greeks intended.

Butch_Wagstaff July 11, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Oh god, yes! Especially the 5'2" of yummy muscles that is Jonathan Horton.

MRjonz July 11, 2012 at 6:02 pm

Amazing. The question "Just how stupid are the Twit Triumvirate at Fox and Friends” gets a new answer five days a week. It's the closest thing we have to perpetual motion.

And I’m willing to bet that with as much time as they spend putting their foot in their mouth, Brian Kilmeade and Steve Doocy now exclusively purchase shoes that are edible.

Designer_Radio July 11, 2012 at 7:49 pm

The show that I sometimes hate-watch because my wife insists on getting her TomKat Divorce news, Inside Edition just said that the French Fried Queens that make up our olympic team also wore the same berets at the Utah Olympics. I would expect a little more Historical Perspective from a show of the caliber of Fox & Friends.

anniegetyerfun July 11, 2012 at 9:58 pm

You mean, the Olympics that Romney is so proud of having salvaged from the ashes?

Designer_Radio July 11, 2012 at 11:12 pm

Oh, that was HIM? He just locked up the Rants House vote.

Willardbot9000_V2.5 July 11, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Aha! you can't say "p_ssy"! anymore, either…even if Steve Doocy is the posterchild for the male version…that's a shame since I love to call those suburban-bitch titted wingnut "toughguys" that word regularly…I suppose c*nt is out, too? Even when referring to Palin?

Willardbot9000_V2.5 July 11, 2012 at 8:57 pm

Did I miss some new phony flap wonkette has gotten pulled into to make you guys act like chickenshits in the face of rampant wingnuttery like the Stuef incident again? Just wondering why we're being censored even more to comment on this site…

Baba_NinjaCat12 July 11, 2012 at 9:37 pm

They overruled Mitt R'money plan for U.S. athletes to wear a top hat and a monocle for the 2002 Winter Olympics opening ceremony. Yet still, the gear is likely be made in China.

anniegetyerfun July 11, 2012 at 9:53 pm

Well, a part of Washington that might as well be Texas.

Negropolis July 12, 2012 at 1:39 am

They also totally seemed to have forgotten when the team wore berets a few winter olympics back. But, is that really a surprise?

Fox & Friends Has All Sorts of Problems With These Olympic Team Berets Logic, Semantics, Grade 2 Math, Cause & Effect, & Which Comes First, "Wipe" Or "Flush"

Fascist as hell!

DahBoner July 12, 2012 at 6:39 am

Wait? Fox News said Special Forces are French and Gay????

NOTHING A GOOD PIMP SLAPPING WON'T FIX

larrykat July 13, 2012 at 1:20 pm

The best part was when the blond moron said "I suppose we better pronounce it the French way, beret!" I would like ask her what the fuck the American way to pronounce 'beret' is?
