After Trump VA Announcement, Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld Jokes About Pete Hegseth Being Passed Over

President Trump announced another Cabinet shake-up on Twitter today, this time with the VA Secretary, and the new secretary did not turn out to be Pete Hegseth.

The Fox & Friends Weekend co-host and former executive director for Vets for Freedom was being talked about as a potential replacement for David Shulkin in multiple reports, but ultimately the President went with Admiral Ronny Jackson.

On Fox News’ The Five, Dana Perino talked about the recent gossip about the VA department before saying now is the time for “new blood.”

Greg Gutfeld cracked some jokes about this breaking news, including: “I guess Pete Hegseth is going to be free for my show this weekend… Always the bridesmaid.”

“He knows I’m kidding!” Gutfeld said with a laugh after hearing his co-hosts’ reactions.
