Shepard Smith: ‘So Cold He’s Turned Into Color Bars’

On “Shepard Smith Reporting” this afternoon, Chicago-based correspondent Garrett Tenney was so cold, he apparently vanished off the screen.

“Garrett would you slide in?’ Smith asked. “We lost him…Garrett is so cold that he has turned into color bars.”

“Cold enough that I can’t stay here in one place,” Tenney said upon reappearing on screen.

Update: “Our prayers are with the people of Oklahoma today,” Obama said. “Oklahoma needs to get everything that it needs right away.”

Meanwhile, the news channels are sending their A-teams to Oklahoma to cover the fallout from the tornado.
