Full One-On-One Interview on Fox & Friends | Fox News (1/8/2018)

A key, and humorous, takeaway from the president’s comments to farmers today. It’s an oblique reminder of an observation by Scott Baio, to Fox News. Baio was at the president’s Christmas party at the White House. Baio quipped that people don’t understand the president’s humor, saying he was from Brooklyn, and the president is from Queens. In those places, people “mess with you” – meaning, play head joke-laden games.
