RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY (CO-HOST): But it's actually, it's so -- I'm going to just say it, I think it's evil. It's evil to take a country as good as ours, a country that really if you look at people's everyday interactions with people of other races and cultures here in America. They're by and large, 99.9% peaceful, loving people want to live in America the way Martin Luther King had it where we don't see color, we look at people's character. That's who we are and yet he, for political gain, because he has failed so much as a president and taken our country so down, he understands the only way he can win is to convince some pretty dumb college kids at that university, if they believe him, that it's a disservice if they believe that this country is full of white supremacists and that's our number one threat? But look, you saw in 2020, Pete, during those riots, a lot of people could be convinced that this is not -- this is a racist country.

PETE HEGSETH (CO-HOST): That's being taught at that university.


HEGSETH: And at universities across America. So that statement is not surprising to the ears of those kids or the ears of most college kids across America. They've been programmed to believe that it's true, most of which have never left the country, never seen real -- you want to see real racism? Travel the world.
