Trump's transition team has been fraught with infighting as new reports suggest Donald's son in law, Jared Kushner, settled old scores against Chris Christie and his people and ousted them from leadership roles in Trump's transition team.

Never fear, Donald Trump, because your biggest fans at Fox and Friends are here to get your back.

As they bantered about how awesome Trump is and how the media was once again attacking elect-Trump as soon as the election was over, co-host Steve Doocy gave the lamest excuse for the troubles with Trump's transition team.

Doocy said, courtesy of Media Matters, " But he has put together management teams, and this is the ultimate management team. And he's a businessman and he's going to do it right. And we've seen The Apprentice. That takes 13 weeks to wind up with a winner, doesn't it?"

There you have it, folks. The White House is nothing more than an extended NBC reality show and the presidency is being run by TV executives.

Have a foreign policy matter to deliberate about? let's ask Tea Leoni, who plays Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord on CBS' Madam Secretary.

Worried about terrorism, let's pipe in Jack Bauer on Skype!
