‘Rome, Final Days’: Fox’s Neil Cavuto Mocks Caitlyn Jenner

One TV news host who is decidedly not on board with Caitlyn Jenner’s gender transition is Fox News host Neil Cavuto.

“Bruce Jenner is now Caitlyn Jenner,” Cavuto said on his Fox Business show Monday afternoon, showing the newly-released Vanity Fair cover on screen before asking reporter, Dagen McDowell, “What the hell is going on?!”

For her part, McDowell at first did her best to defend Jenner from Cavuto’s joking inquiries, but still continued to use male pronouns to describe the post-transition reality star, suggesting Caitlyn Jenner was trying to one-up step-daughter Kim Kardashian, who announced she was pregnant over the weekend. She also called Jenner’s cover outfit “very Playboy bunny-esque.”

“Look at the time,” Cavuto joked, apparently eager to move on to another topic. He then proceeded to crack up the entire set by introducing contributor “Charlene Payne, or shall I say Charles Payne?” But it was Cavuto’s final words on the subject that revealed his true feelings: “Rome, final days. But that’s fine.”
