On Monday, Fox Business' Neil Cavuto covered Caitlyn Jenner's transition with the news network's trademark insensitivity.

"Bruce Jenner is now Caitlyn Jenner," Cavuto says with disbelief before shouting, "What the hell is going on?!"

"Bruce Jenner, let's give him credit," said reporter Dagen McDowell, identifying Jenner by the wrong name and the wrong gender pronoun. "He is the only person on planet earth who knows how to one up his most famous step-daughter, Kim Kardashian. She announces last night that she's pregnant with a child. Well, you know what, I can do you one better than that. That's how he unveiled his new identity, kind of leaving his male identity behind with Caitlyn."

"He looks hot," McDowell continued. "Or, she looks hot."

Cavuto then introduced his next guest, Charles Payne as "Charlene Payne" which gave everyone on set a good laugh.
