Larry Wilmore had a lot of fun at Fox News’ expense last night. After inserting himself into an O’Reilly Factor debate, the Nightly Show host turned his attention to another Fox host who has been getting attention for all the wrong reasons this week: Fox & Friends’ axe-throwing champ Pete Hegseth.

“We often give Fox News a hard time, because, well, they’re terrible,” Wilmore said Wednesday night. “But we caught something on their channel last week that raised the bar for just how bad they can get.”

After showing the clip of Hegseth hitting a military drummer with an axe, Wilmore cracked up as he said, “I mean we give Fox a hard time about irresponsible journalism, but in this case they’re just plain irresponsible.”

“Technically, this was an attack on our military,” he added.
