Fox News host brags about deflating colleague's tyres so he could drive ...

A Fox News host's phone rang while live on a broadcast - and the ringtone raised eyebrows on air.

During Wednesday’s episode of “The Five,” Jeanine Pirro had her phone loudly blast music during Greg Gutfeld’s segment. The awkward moment occurred right before Gutfeld started his recurring “Animals Are Great” segment. Pirro's phone rang and her ringtone went off, causing laughter from her fellow Fox News co-hosts.

“What the hell’s going on?” Gutfeld asked as Pirro fought with her cell phone to try and turn off the ringtone.

"Welp, Judge Jeanine's phone goes off during The Five's live broadcast. 'What the hell's going on?!' (Also, can anyone identify the song she's using as her ringtone?)" read one tweet alongside a video of the moment.

The song in question was Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar."

Here are the lyrics:


We got winners, we got losers
Chain-smokers and boozers
We got yuppies
We got bikers
We got thirsty hitchhikers
And the girls next door dress up like movie stars
Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, I love this barWe got cowboys
We got truckers
Broken-hearted fools and suckers
And we got hustlers
We got fighters
Early-birds and all-nighters
And the veterans talk about their battle scars
Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, I love this barI love this bar
It's my kind of place
Just walkin' through the front door
Puts a big smile on my face
It ain't too far
Come as you are
Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, I love this barI've seen short skirts
We've got high-techs
Blue-collared boys and rednecks
And we got lovers
Lots of lookers
I've even seen dancing girls and hookers
And we like to drink our beer from a mason jar
Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, I love this bar
(Yes I do)I like my truck
I like my truck
And I like my girlfriend
I like my girlfriend
I like to take her out to dinner
I like a movie now and thenBut I love this bar
It's my kind of place
Just toein' around the dance floor
Puts a big smile on my face
No cover charge
Come as you are
Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, I love this bar

“How could this be on?” said as the song continued to blare from her phone. “It’s a good thing we’re not on like, Broadway,” Geraldo Rivera said as she chuckled about the situation.

“Thank God we’re not on TV,” Gutfeld quipped.

"How do people in TV Broadcasting STILL not put their phones on vibrate?" wrote one person on Twitter of the situation.

Another said, "What blows my mind isn’t the amount of people who leave their ringtone on before live TV/an interview/meeting… It’s the way they stare at their phone dumbfounded apparently not knowing where the silent switch is IMMEDIATELY."
