I don't usually post comments on social media, but I wanted to say that I enjoyed hearing what you had to say, living through you vicariously (and laughing with you) on the various segments, and trusting that you would bring forth the truth on important topics. Wishing you the best on your new endeavors...but missing you at the same time.


Clayton why you have to go :( Miss You forever!!


He was never in his element. Tried too hard. Insecure. Not funny. I can watch fox on weekend mornings now.

I agree; I just didn't feel that Clayton came across as a good host should. He just didn't connect with viewers in my opinion. Seemed a little stiff and conceited at times.
