"Fox News’ Pete Hegseth’s day in the sun stems from his willingness to toil in a dark place.
“I don’t care about Iranian cultural sites,” Hegseth said during a Monday segment on Fox News’ The Five. Hegseth was defending President Donald Trump, as he always does, while slamming Democrats after the president twice threatened Iran with what would amount to war crimes if Iran retaliated for last week’s drone-strike assassination of general Qasem Soleimani.
Hegseth started with an attack on Democrats who have taken issue with the strike on Soleimani, saying, “With friends like these Democrats, who needs the Iranians.”
Hegseth then addressed Trump’s threat by first asserting that the president was only referring to one cultural site. “Fifty-two sites, one which could be cultural,” Hegseth said of the president’s threat. Trump, however, did not make that qualification.
On Saturday, Trump tweeted a “warning” to Iran that said, in part, that the US military has “targeted 52 Iranian sites… some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD.”"
