Speaking on Fox and Friends, Hegseth said the infectious micro-organisms did not exist because they could not be seen with the naked eye. "I inoculate myself," added the Harvard and Princeton graduate. His confession came after co-hosts Ed Henry and Jedediah Bila made fun of him for eating left-over pizza. "My 2019 resolution is to say things on air that I say off air," Hegseth added. His comments were met with both support and concern on social media.
