Brett Baier took a Moment to Update Viewers on Krauthammer’s Status

Charles Krauthammer, a Fox News commentator, has been out of the public eye since August.

On Thursday Fox News Special Report host Brett Baier took time to tell the viewers about Krauthammer’s condition.

“Before we leave, one quick update,” Baier said. “Hundreds of you, literally hundreds have emailed, tweeted, or posted questions to me about the status of our colleague, Charles Krauthammer.”

In September, Baier tweeted saying Krauthammer had some complications and that he is making “slow and steady progress.” Krauthammer last public post was on August 4th.

“As I said on this show a few weeks ago, his pre-planned ran into some complications post-surgery, so he’s still in the hospital making slow, steady progress and recovery,” Baier said Thursday night.

“He desperately wants to come back to the panel as soon as possible, believe me,” he added.

“I speak to or email with his wife Robby almost every day. And I share your thoughts and prayers,” Baier continued.

He said Krauthammer needs time and he won’t be returning soon.

“It will likely be a few more weeks,” he said.

Anyhow, he said Krauthammer will have some kind of distraction.

“And yes, he does get to watch his Washington Nationals first game of the playoffs against the Cubs, tomorrow night, so we’re pulling for him.”

“… thanks for asking about his status,” Baier said, “he’ll be back here soon I’m sure.”

    Still doesn’t state the type of surgery. I’m guessing it was a preventative type, possibly male, but that is pure conjecture. I guess the real reason is private. I am a big fan of his.

    I believe one should always stand for the American National Anthem, just as the Brits stand for their own anthem and the Queen. Neither our Flag nor our Anthem should be used as a platform for political expression. There are other venues available for that. To use the Anthem or Flag in such a way is indeed to dishonor them, and merely an attempt to get attention to the politicizing party, rather than to the Anthem or Flag, which should be the focus at that moment. Athletes who kneel or refuse to stand or be present, regardless of their political views, have basically said, “Neither the Anthem nor the Flag” is worthy of our respect. This is despicable and should not be tolerated! They, their coaches, owners & associations who allow this should be deservedly penalized.

    “Praying that Dr Krauthammer will be healed in Jesus Name,Amen.”

    Also, Prestigious Medical Journal: #CHEST has the protocol for the #CURE FOR #SEPSIS.Its been discovered by East Virginia Med School,1.5G VITAMIN C IV+ LOW DOSE STEROIDS + VIT B.

    I’m Sure you understand why #BigPharma & #FDA Don’t Shout it From the House Tops .(They Can’t Make Any $ off all natural products.) High Doses of Bacteria-Resistant antibiotics & high doses of #Steroids, Kill the Kidneys & damage Heart &Lungs.Its the Meds that kill the #Sepsis patients!#GBU. @FlaPatriciaLJennings
