BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Let's talk about this, something new that kind of got sprung on us last week. For the last few months, we have had a disinformation czar and a unit within the Homeland Security Department. And even Mayorkas said on Sunday, yeah, I probably could have rolled that out a little bit better. Then, we find out who is in charge of it, and this woman that's in charge of it, Nina Jankowicz, who's about eight-and-a-half-months pregnant, so I'm not sure how you get a job and then you just – you can't do a job for three months. I'm not faulting her, but I don't know why you would give someone a job that you think is so important.

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): How long has she had this job?

KILMEADE: About two months, it looks like.

EARHARDT: Well, I'll defend her on that one, Brian. She has the right to have a baby and have maternity leave.
