The morning anchor expressed discontent for being portrayed by a “fat” man in the popular “Saturday Night Live” sketches parodying the Fox News show
A new season of “Saturday Night Live” is right around the corner, which means new sketches mocking Fox News program “Fox & Friends” are, too. While new co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck is excited to see what cast member will spoof her conservative personality, co-host Brian Kilmeade appears to be dreading Bobby Moynihan's continued lampoonery.
“I pray he got another job,” Kilmeade said on Friday morning's episode.

“Or had lap-band surgery,” co-host Steve Doocy added. “See, that's the thing that bothers Brian the most. I mean they do depict us cartoonish-like, but they do play you as just a gigantic man.”
“I'll take dumb,” Kilmeade said. “I fight the fat.”
Kilmeade — apparently bothered by Moynihan's physical appearance — expressed hopes that NBC's long-running late-night sketch series would pay more attention to “Access Hollywood Live” co-hosts Kit Hoover and Billy Bush, both of whom also have a history of being parodied by performers.
But not everyone on the Fox News program is bothered by Moynihan's weight. Heather Nauert chimed in to profess her “love” for Moynihan's comedic timing.
“He just cracks me up,” Nuaert said. “He makes me laugh every time I see it.”
