Dr. Chaps Gets National Slot on FOX News

  • 9 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

UPDATE: Say what you will about Dr. Chaps (and we’ve said plenty), but we’ll give the man a little  credit for being able to laugh at himself. Via Facebook:

Chaps-Pols

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Original April Fool’s Day post follows…

It has been an interesting few days weeks months for State Rep. Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt. Last week, Dr. Chaps’ controversial statements about a gruesome crime in Longmont drew the ire of Republicans and Democrats alike — just the latest and most public of his many (many) verbal miscues since winning election last November.Fox_News_Channel_logo

On Monday, Dr. Chaps was removed from one of his House Committee posts by Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, and Klingenschmitt himself announced that he was suspending his “television preaching ministry” for six weeks in order to focus his time on his legislative duties. While Dr. Chaps’ suspension of his own “television preaching ministry” made sense, given that there are only 6 weeks left in the 2015 legislative session anyway, there may have been another reason for Klingenschmitt to go off the air for awhile.

According to a press release, Dr. Chaps is going to get his own national TV show on FOX News. Here’s the full text of the announcement:

FOX News Announces New Half-Hour Talk Show with Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt
Controversial & Thought-Provoking Legislator/Television Preacher will Precede “The O’Reilly Factor” Starting on June 1

NEW YORK — FOX News Channel is pleased to announce What’s the Haps with Dr. Chaps, a new lead-in show for The O’Reilly Factor that will premiere nationwide on June 1. The 30-minute show will feature the multi-talented Colorado legislator Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt, who will finish up his first session in the Colorado State House in mid-May.

“Dr. Chaps is a captivating personality with a true talent for thought-provoking conversation, and he’ll fit in perfectly with our talented lineup,” said FOX News President Roger Ailes. “As we’ve seen with The O’Reilly Factor, FOX News viewers don’t want real news or factual statements; we expect What’s the Haps with Dr. Chaps to be a big hit from day one.”

Dr. Chaps recently announced that he was suspending his “television preaching ministry” in order to concentrate on his work in the Colorado State Legislature. When Dr. Chaps gets back on the air in June, FOX News expects that he will bring literally a dozen viewers with him.

“This is a truly amazing opportunity,” said Dr. Chaps. “When I heard the news from Mr. Ailes, my first thought was of Genesis 15:9, which reads, The Lord answered, ‘Bring me a heifer three years old, a she-goat, three years old, a ram three years old, a turtle dove and a young pigeon.’

Dr. Chaps has not yet decided whether he will continue to serve in the Colorado legislature in 2016.

Also, none of this is true.
