FOX News anchor Neil Cavuto recently invited Fabio Lanzoni on to discuss his bit starring role in that Plug In America PSA we recently saw — but things off the bat quickly took a turn for the dumb.
How dumb? I kid you not — Cavuto, embracing the role of a snide, ignorant bully, spent half the time trying to convince Fabio that there’s no way he could fit inside a Tesla electric roadster. It became such a constant question, that its a wonder Lanzoni was able to express his love for the technology at all. FOX even went so far as to throw a graphic up showing an oversized Fabio inside the Volt and Tesla. I mean, WTF, is their new angle attempting to convince viewers that tall people cannot fit in these vehicles?
Fabio, ever gracious in the face of such stupidity, told an incredulous Cavuto that there is video on Youtube of him driving the Tesla quite comfortably. Cavuto for his part, ended the segment calling plug in vehicles a “dumb idea”.
