'Fox and Friends' Borrows a Giuliani Figure

Reported by Judy - February 6, 2007 -

People tuning in to "Fox and Friends" Tuesday (February 6, 2007) may have noticed someone peering in the window over the shoulder of co-host Brian Kilmeade. That's not unusual because people often can be seen standing on the sidewalk outside the studio, talking on the cell phone, and waving at the camera. But this guy was different. He never moved. With screenshot (no audio).

"Fox and Friends" co-hosts Kilmeade, Steve Doocy, and Gretchen Carlson did not mention the figure immediately, but a few minutes into the show, they pointed out that the man in the suit behind Kilmeade was none other than Rudy Giuliani, or rather the wax version of Giuliani from Madame Toussand's wax museum.

The figure stayed behind Kilmeade for awhile. Later, it was shown in the Fox News control room.

On Monday, Giuliani announced formation of an exploratory committee for a 2008 run for the Republican presidential nomination. Apparently, he couldn't make it to "Fox and Friends" for the show, although the Friends crew did interview a GOP supporter, as well as former New York police commissioner Harold Safir.

They did not, however, interview the wax figure, although it is rumored that Kilmeade asked several questions before figuring out it was not the real Giuliani.

What next -- a milk chocolate Barack Obama? A Hillary Clinton made of butter?
