KAYLEIGH MCENANY (CO-HOST): For over 80 years that's been the motto of Superman, but no more. DC Comics chief creative officer and publisher Jim Lee announced that they're dropping “the American way" from the superhero's iconic slogan. Instead, it will be replaced with “and a better tomorrow." Wow, Jason. “American way" to “a better tomorrow." Huh. 

JASON CHAFFETZ (CONTRIBUTOR): That is so weak and so, so woke. Look, it's just validating why I was so into Aquaman more than Superman. They are blowing the Superman franchise.

MCENANY: Oh they are, and Harris, this is not anything new. In 2011, Superman renounced his U.S. citizenship and he declared, quote, “I'm tired of having my actions construed as instruments of U.S. policy."


MCENANY: Yeah. I was shocked when I read that.

FAULKNER: I mean, goodness. I'm still blown away by that clip. No one had sideburns like Margot Kidder. Did you see? Lois Lane's sideburns were just great. 

Look, I don't think there's any confusion here, we're being told not to love our country, or at least it feels that way. And I guess Hollywood thinks that they can do that, and they can't. So all we have to do is say, no thank you — and you do that with your money.
