Bret Baier has no clue what will happen at the Republican National Convention.

Baier, the chief political anchor for Fox News, made an appearance on Tuesday’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert to predict that The Donald will in fact clinch the GOP’s nomination, despite efforts by #DumpTrump, #NeverTrump, and similar campaigns pushing for an alternative nominee.

Beyond that, though, the anchor told Colbert that he and other Fox personnel will be ready for anything, particularly when it comes to protests outside the convention. They’re bringing security and packing safety equipment — yes, even gas masks.

“Anything can happen, and this election has proven that we don’t know what’s next,” Baier said.

Unwittingly, Colbert also pokes fun at the credibility of Fox News during the interview. Watch the full clip below:

Holocaust Memorial Group Excoriates RFK Jr Over Nazi Anti-Vax Rhetoric

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. continued to tarnish his family’s name with a speech at the anti-vaccine rally in Washington, D.C., on Sunday. Kennedy, who is suing Daily Kos over a user post reporting on his participation in an anti-mask rally in Germany that was organized and attended by Nazis, used Sunday’s high-profile (if not especially well-attended) event to … compare vaccination mandates to the Holocaust while spewing out a word salad of conspiracy theories.

“Even in Hitler’s Germany, you could cross the Alps into Switzerland, you could hide in an attic like Anne Frank did. I visited in 1962 East Germany with my father, and met people who had climbed the wall and escaped. So it was possible. Many died [inaudible], but it was possible,” Kennedy said to what The Washington Post described as a crowd that had begun drifting away. “Today, the mechanisms are being put in place that will make it so none of us can run and none of us can hide. Within five years, we’re going to see 415,000 low-orbit satellites. Bill Gates said his 65,000 satellites alone will be able to look at every square-inch of the planet 24 hours a day. They’re putting in 5G to harvest our data and control our behavior. Digital currency that will allow them to punish us from a distance and cut off our food supply.”

The fact that not everyone in Texas is a far-right Republican was evident on Sunday, January 23, when San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was interviewed by reporters and spoke his mind about voting rights — slamming not only Republicans, but also, two centrist Democrats: Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona.

Before the Spurs’ game against the Philadelphia 76ers — the basketball team known for everyone from Julius Erving, a.k.a. Dr. J., to Allen Iverson — the 72-year-old Popovich told reporters:
