A comedy bit on Fox News went sadly awry, and proved the power of a video going viral. The "Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld" show featured Greg Gutfeld doing a riff on the war in Afghanistan. His insults and ignorance led to the remark, "I didn’t even know they were in the war."
The Daily Observer said, "The segment features American panelists suggesting Canadian soldiers need time off for 'manicures and pedicures.'"
There was follow up banter by the rest of the crew and the Canada bloggers came unglued, forcing apologies from the segment participants.
