Charles Payne, Fox Business Host, Drops F-Bomb (VIDEO)

Fox Business News correspondent Charles Payne dropped the f-bomb during a discussion of a teen job program on Thursday.

He voiced his support for the proposed program, and recalled his own experience working as a teenager. He made the slip saying, "I'll never forget one guy I worked for, Mr. Hoover! He taught me how to count change, he taught me how to make sausage, he taught me how to f–king wake up in the morning and do what I was supposed to do!"

Payne covered his mouth in shock as soon as he realized what he had said. Later, co-host Stuart Varney said, "Varney & Company apologizing for Charles getting carried away."

Payne added, "I apologize for that, that was a slip!"
