'Fox & Friends'

PRANKED On Live TV

By Fake Romney Supporter

"Fox & Friends" just got pranked by a phony Mitt Romney supporter ... who fooled producers into putting him on the air ... where he proceeded to screw with host Gretchen Carlson for 2 hilariously awkward minutes.

The fake guest -- who went by the name Max Rice -- appeared on the show via satellite this morning to talk about why young people like himself have turned on Obama and are now supporting Mitt Romney.

Here's how the first exchange went:

Rice: "Miss USA, it's an honor."
Carlson: "Miss America ... but close enough."
Rice: "Miss Universe in my book."

Rice -- who claimed to be an unemployed recent college grad who just moved out of his parents house --  went on to explain he became a "Nit Romney" supporter after losing a basketball game to a friend.

Carlson eventually realized she was being messed with ... and ended the segment. It was later reported that Max happens to be an aspiring comic.

Pretty funny clip -- check it out.

Meh, he wasn't even funny. He had an opportunity to do a huge prank and #failed miserably. He honestly came across as one of those clueless "occupy" 20somethings that need a job.

As the great Twitter comedian JennyJohnsonHi5 once said: "Fox News is like 'Sesame Street' for old white people."

Just goes to show how the Dems will do anything to try to elect that deadbeat President back in office. They will lie and scheme. BTW, Fox News has more viewers than all liberal media outlets combined. Liberal media hides ALL the truth from viewers. Want the real truth? Watch Fox and get it...

Being pranked adds perfectly to the already-present stupidity of that ship of fools.

These morons are the kind of people who support Obama. They're not serious, they're just jackasses who want to bully and humiliate anyone who doesn't agree with their point of view. Instead of arguing facts, they're making jokes. Instead of having a intellectual debate about the issues, they're pranking people to make them look foolish. Great job. you're really showing what the liberal party is all about.

TMZ -would- find this hilarious. Given situation, Gretchen handled herself like a professional. This idiot is a perfect example of why liberals get have earned label as left-wing nut jobs. Atleast he represents his party honestly.

I had such hope for Gretchen in the beginning but she's turned into just an empty mouthpiece for Fox's propaganda. A sad excuse for a journalist. Glad to see her get punked ....... couldn't happen to a nicer person!

Interesting that all the conservative "pundits" like rush limbaugh, bill oreilly, glenn beck ,tucker carlson, etc. would be the last people in the world to go join the army when they were younger and fight in all the wars they support. Bunch of hypocrites.
