Fox News’ Lil’ Willie Geist recently joined the “On The Record” cast on Fox News Radio to discuss the impending American Music Awards (AMAs).
On whether past AMAs performances should not have been aired: Obviously I think it’s a little ridiculous that you would have performances of songs that are no longer on the chart or albums that are no longer on the charts. I think we are afraid to upset our country folk because they are all so ‘conservatives’.
On if the “birther” movement continued following the birth of Barack Obama’s first child: I’m not necessarily a birther. If anything, Donald Trump is. He’s the guy who said, “I’m a ‘celebrity,'” And then he’s going to act all concerned for America? You are a celebrity. How much do you love this country, Mr. President? I think he has been obviously consistent in what he believes. He doesn’t believe that the country is going in the right direction. And if you don’t care about your country, then quit and go live in China or Iceland or wherever else you’re happy.
On the continued controversy surrounding Keith Urban’s wife’s gender reveal over the weekend: There is no way Keith Urban knew who it was before he came up. The fan that shot the video definitely knew. The announcer on the radio didn’t know. The Grammys didn’t know. I don’t think Keith Urban had an idea it was a little girl in the whole deal. I think he is going to be very interested to see if they name her Blue because I don’t think he was expecting a little boy. I don’t think he would have thought that and then his wife comes back in and said, “Well, you know, it’s a little girl.”
On whether “immediately following the death of Jimmy Hoffa” the FBI would be involved: I don’t think they would. I think the likelihood is that it was low-level gang members that he was caught with. I think Jimmy Hoffa is definitely somebody that would stand behind him. He is not your average Johnny carter. Jimmy Hoffa is a large man. If anything it would really come out over time. We wouldn’t know anything about the organized crime until the era of the ’70s and ’80s. That’s the way I would look at it.
