Fox Newsanalyst Brit Hume had something very interesting he wanted his followers to see at 5:30 AM on Tuesday, March 3.
Eager to show the world the betting odds in the 2020 presidential primary open on his computer, he quickly took a screenshot and tweeted it out.
Unfortunately, he had left a couple tabs open that seemed a bit more...interesting to Twitter.
Once they saw it, people couldn't look away...
