Announcer: You’re watching “Fox and Friends.”

[ dissolve to the morning show hosts on-set ]

Steve Doocy: Thank you! Welcome back to the third hour of “Fox and Friends.” I’m Steve Doocy, and, joining me as always — Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade!

Gretchen Carlson: Oh, good morning! [ she laughs ]

Brian Kilmeade: Happy Monday!

Steve Doocy: Did everybody have a good weekend?

Gretchen Carlson: GREAT weekend!

Brian Kilmeade: I finally took the tree down!

Steve Doocy: Oh, great! You know, THAT’S how you fight the liberal war on Christmas — you keep the tree up ’til May!

Gretchen Carlson: You know, I heard the White House doesn’t even call it a Christmas tree — they call it a “Holiday” tree.

Brian Kilmeade: Oh, man! I had to throw mine out because a raccoon had babies in it!

Steve Doocy: Miracle of life! Well, this week was the one-year anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden. And shame on President Barack Obama, who is running a campaign ad that argues Mit Romney would not have made the same decision to launch the raid?

Gretchen Carlson: It’s ridiculous! ANYONE would have launched that raid!

Steve Doocy: Absolutely! I mean, name ONE person who wouldn’t have launched that raid!

Brian Kilmeade: I can name one person who wouldn’t have launched that raid: Barack Obama!

Steve Doocy: No… Brian…

Gretchen Carlson: No, that doesn’t work this time.

Brian Kilmeade: But it always works!

Steve Doocy: Not this time — he already did it. Yeah, no… yep, yep!

Gretchen Carlson: Uh, also — I’m just gonna say something…

Steve Doocy: Uh-oh! Look out! Here she goes!

Gretchen Carlson: How do we know bin Laden is really dead?

Brian Kilmeade: Whoa, there it is!

Gretchen Carlson: I’m serious! Okay? So they say they have pictures. Okay? Well, you can do a lot with Photoshop!

Steve Doocy: Hmm…

Gretchen Carlson: Okay? You can make it look like glaciers are melting.

Steve Doocy: Oh, wow!

Gretchen Carlson: Okay? I once saw a picture of a mountain with four presidents’ faces on it. OKay? That’s not real!

Steve Doocy: I saw that! That’s not real! That’s not real!

Brian Kilmeade: And, sometimes, people who you think are dead, aren’t dead. I mean, I thought Tupac Shakur was dead, and then I saw he did a concert, why, just last week.

Steve Doocy: No… no… that was a hologram, Brian.

Brian Kilmeade: Uh, but if Tupac was a hologram, the bullet would have gone right through him.

Gretchen Carlson: Hmm… Well, I, for one, hope that Hologram Tupac doesn’t turn to a life of crime.

Brian Kilmeade: Yeah. Sure.

Gretchen Carlson: Because he would be impossible to catch. Alright? [ demonstrating ] I got him! Oh, no — he’s gone!”

Steve Doocy: THat’s a good point. That’s a really good point.

Brian Kilmeade: I don’t know, maybe call the Ghostbusters?

Steve Doocy: Yeah. Alright, moving on… the White House Correspondents Dinner was last week, and there was the President telling jokes again!

Gretchen Carlson: Yeah, he’s always telling jokes!

Steve Doocy: I mean, I guess the President thinks what’s happening to this country is funny?

Brian Kilmeade: Yeah! I’ve got a joke for him: What is black and white and lies?

Steve Doocy: Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!

Brian Kilmeade: What?! What’d I do? What? What’s the problem?

Steve Doocy: Brian, do NOT say Barack Obama!

Brian Kilmeade: Oh, I was going to say a panda on Weight Watchers. I mean, black and white and lies: “This bamboo is only six points.” [ he laughs ]

Gretchen Carlson: Well, why were you going to say that?

Brian Kilmeade: I mean, we were just talking about jokes, it popped into my head.. it’s just so funny!

Steve Doocy: Hmm. Well, one person who’s not laughing this week is Rupert Murdoch, who’s under investigation by British authorities for hacking phones.

Gretchen Carlson: Yeah, so he taped some phone calls. So what?!

Brian Kilmeade: If people didn’t tape phone calls, we never would have had the Jerky Boys!

Steve Doocy: Great point! Great point! Joining us now, live via satellite in London — Rupert Murdoch! Good morning, Rupert!

Rupert Murdoch: [ smiling like a weasel ] Hello, my children!

Brian Kilmeade: Now… you’re in London, correct?

Rupert Murdoch: Correct!

Brian Kilmeade: Now… is it true it’s five hours later there?

Rupert Murdoch: Yes!

Brian Kilmeade: So… you could watch the Yankee game, and then tell us who won before anyone else here knew?

Rupert Murdoch: What?

Steve Doocy: Oh, Brian… please.

Brian Kilmeade: I don’t understand. I bet that’s how he made his fortune, betting on sports!

Steve Doocy: No, no… Alright, now we should disclose that Rupert Murdoch owns Fox News.

Gretchen Carlson: Yeah, and I’d like to disclose that I think Rupert Murdoch is great!

Rupert Murdoch: Thank you.

Steve Doocy: Yeah, and you know, so do I. Why does disclosing have to be so negative?

Gretchen Carlson: Yeah! Right!

Brian Kilmeade: And I should disclose that I don’t quite know what “disclose” means.

Rupert Murdoch: What in the hell is going ON over there?!

Gretchen Carlson: Guys, we’re being rude to our guest. Now, Rupert — what is this parliamentary committee so mad about?

Rupert Murdoch: Oh, they accused me of having a lack of ETHICS!

Steve Doocy: Ooooookay! Here we go again! Affirmative action rears its ugly head again!

Gretchen Carlson: You should only hire an ethnic if you want to hire an ethnic!

Steve Doocy: Absolutely! Absolutely!

Rupert Murdoch: Not “lack of ethnics“! “Lack of ETHICS”! You’re the dumbest people I’ve ever met, and I’m from Australia!

Steve Doocy: Oh! Australia, huh? “G’day, mate!” [ he laughs ]

Gretchen Carlson: “Top of the morning!” [ she laughs ]

Brian Kilmeade: “Hakuna matata!” [ he laugh and tips an invisible hat ]

Steve Doocy: So what’s next for Rupert Murdoch?

Rupert Murdoch: I’ve made some mistakes, but I’m not gonna let this stop me! I’m gonna continue on with my great Socialist experiment of seeing how misinformed a person can be while hosting a morning news program! [ he laughs ]

Steve Doocy: Oh!

Gretchen Carlson: Well, good luck with that!

Steve Doocy: Yeah, keep us updated!

Brian Kilmeade: [ laughing nervously ] “A panda at Weight Watchers!” [ he laughs ] “Oh, bamboo is only six points — I swear!”

Gretchen Carlson: We’ll take a quick break, but first — our fact checkers have looked over the first two hours of the show, and we have a few corrections!
