FUTURE PRIMATE

Fox & Friends Gets Punked? Or Is This An Amazingly Bizarre Interview?

A bizarre interview on this morning’s edition of Fox & Friends was quickly ended after the guest seemingly baffled the hosts with possibly sarcastic answers that were in direct contradiction to the claims in his book.

Anthony Esolen was brought on the show to discuss his book Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child. Co-hosts Clayton Morris and Juliet Huddy introduced it as a book about how modern “distractions” like television, video games, keeping children indoors too often, and constant parental supervision are “destroying our children’s imagination.”

Asked a relatively straightforward question about the premise of his book, Esolen took to a confusingly sarcastic response, saying: “We do want to destroy the imaginations of our children, otherwise our economy would collapse and people would stop buying things they don’t need and don’t really even enjoy.”
