Media Matters has the transcript:

RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY: And after you leave the museum tour, which again makes you feel guilty and not so great about America, at the end there’s a gift shop where you can buy Ibram X. Kendi’s how to be a racist, how to not be a racist book —

JOEY JONES (CO-HOST): This is a racist human being who writes books about hating white people.

CAMPOS-DUFFY: Right, and all of these sort of books that are damning of America and suggesting that were still a racist country are for sale in the gift shop.

PETE HEGSETH: The funding and the people behind the foundation that runs it, all leftists, many tied to the 1619 project. They’re committed to telling the worst story of America and now they’re doing it inside the homes of the Founding Fathers.

JONES: Those aren’t historians, they’re activists.

CAMPOS-DUFFY: And those founders and the donors and the people who are on those boards, that is not a coincidence. This is a diabolical plan on their part to populate these positions that have influence over how America tells its story.
