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."
