Host's washing claim

Pete Hegseth has revealed to TV viewers in the US that he's stopped washing his hands because he doesn't believe germs to be a ''real thing''.

The claim has sparked debate on social media, with Bradley P. Moss among those who have voiced their concerns.

He wrote on Twitter: ''@PeteHegseth Please don't procreate. We don't need your idiocy spreading. (sic)''
