Fox News continued its attack on a California law granting transgender students access to appropriate school facilities by touting the wildly exaggerated fears of a transphobic California lawmaker.

During the August 19 edition of Fox & Friends, co-host Steve Doocy interviewed California Assemblyman Tim Donnelly (R-33), who claims to have recently pulled one of his sons out of public school in response to the passage of the student non-discrimination law. 

During the segment – which opened with Fox’s classic "P.C. Police" intro – Donnelly warned that the measure would make students uncomfortable by forcing them to be "naked in front of someone that you might want to ask out."
