Programming note: Tonight I'll be guest-hosting "Tucker Carlson Tonight" live across America for a full hour starting at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific - with a rerun for West Coasters at midnight Eastern/9pm Pacific. If you're in the presence of the receiving apparatus, I hope you'll dial us up.
This morning I started the day at "Fox & Friends" with Steve, Emily, Brian and Carley. It was a pleasure to be with them, notwithstanding the nuttiness of the news - including Oxford University students' decision to ban clapping and replace it with jazz hands. Spare a thought for poor old Bobby Lewis, the pajama boy in residence at Media Matters, who even before I'd uttered a word was triggered by my walk-on:

Once I opened my mouth it got even worse:
the rest of this segment was even more stupid ignorant trash. a bunch of angry cis morons flapping their rotten gums about sh*t they have absolutely no idea about, they just know it's disgusting and they hate it. f**k all the way off
As you can tell from his elegant Sir Neville Cardus prose style, Mr Lewis writes for The Guardian.
After that, you surely don't want more of my cismoronic self. But you're gonna get it:
On Fox & Friends, Mark Steyn claims "there's no reason to be in a SCIF" for the Trump impeachment inquiry: "If you can have a SCIF for this, can I book the SCIF for my daughter's birthday party? It's ludicrous!" pic.twitter.com/zTFXRec0sX— Bobby Lewis (@revrrlewis) October 25, 2019
You can see the full segment below starting with my Lady Gaga entrance at 19-30:
That Roman governor I couldn't quite recall was Porcius Festus, procurator of Judea circa AD 60:
To whom I answered, It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man to die, before that he which is accused have the accusers face to face, and have licence to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him.
Acts 25:16 - but I'm sure you knew that.
If you prefer me in non-visual formats, I'll be back right here this weekend with a brand new audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time.
If you prefer me non-electronically live on stage and you're a Mark Steyn Club member, come say hello at next month's exclusive members-only events.
See you back on't telly for a full hour, live at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific.
