Bob Beckel Goofs on Bill Hemmer: ‘I’ll Never Be a Blow-Dry Anchor Like You’

The Five co-host Bob Beckel has a laudable New Year’s resolution, but some self-awareness to go along with it, as he backhand-complimented America’s Newsroom host Bill Hemmer on Monday morning by longing to attain the latter’s coiffured pinnacle.

“I am going to lose 20 pounds,” Beckel announced. “And the reason for that is not to become blow-dry anchor like you, because I’ll never do that.”

“You want to take that back?” Hemmer said. “Because we’re friends. ‘Blow dry’?”

“A handsome young anchorman,” Beckel rephrased.

“You still have your hair, too,” Hemmer said.

“That’s the one thing I have,” Beckel said. “But I’m not trying to be skinny for that. I want to be around for my kids and to terrorize the conservatives.”

Below is Hemmer’s official Fox News headshot. YMMV on the blow dry:
