Clayton Morris Says Goodbye To FOX To Focus on Real Estate Investing

[MUSIC] Well, we all know
this man’s name. We teased before
the commercial break that we had a big
announcement from someone right here on the curvy couch. I’m going to toss it over to our
own Clayton Morris, whom we all love. And, take it away. Well, yeah. I have decided after 18 years
in broadcast television– I don’t think I was
going to do this– that today will be my
last day in television. And 10 years here
on the curvy couch. Can we go to commercial? [LAUGHTER] You didn’t think we’d let
you get away with this. Roll package of Clayton. No. Take it away. No. This is my first time
ever doing the show. I’m serious. I’m very, very nervous. So if I pass out,
just keep going. Fox and Friends
begins right now. Four hours of fun this morning. Welcome back on
this great weekend. [MUSIC] Get up close to your TV. We were just
instructed that we had, like, 30 segments outside
on the Plaza this morning. [LAUGHTER] There you go. Oh no. I thought I was
partially athletic. Kick. That just disproved it. Three, two, one. Go. Come on, Clay. There you go. Good job. Good job. There you go. Go, go, go. Let’s go, guys. Let’s go. [CHEERS] How is my hair? I want a recount. [LAUGHTER] I got a hanging [INAUDIBLE]. [JOHNNY CASH IMPRESSION]
My name is Clayton Morris. I fell into a
burning ring of fire. [CHEERS] Down, down, down. And the flames get higher. [POLKA MUSIC] When I think of you,of all of
my years of working with you, I think leiderhosen. [INTERPOSING VOICES] Thank God we weren’t
on television then. Are we almost back
from commercial break? Wow. Are you weddy– are you weddy to
weather fweezing temperatures? Clayton, you don’t
know about this. But people have been
e-mailing all morning long in about your tie. They’re saying
that it’s too long. [LAUGHTER] It’s National Hug a Newsman Day. Can I get a hug? It’s National Hug A– Can you get a– yes. [APPLAUSE] That’s how we do it. Whoa. He’s got a little speed. You showed up late one
time, right, Clayton? To the show? Well, New Year’s Day. Well, my birthday
is New Year’s Eve. I think we’re missing Clayton. We have– [INTERPOSING VOICES] Get your tail in here. Come on, Clayton. What are you doing? When does Fox and Friends
start this morning? When you sit down. Here’s what happened
this morning when I went up to my office. I had a little problem
up on the 15th floor. You never know. Sometimes I walk in and
there’s like a giant inflatable dolphin. Are you guys documenting this? Because this could end badly. Whoa nelly. We have what’s over here. [INTERPOSING VOICES] I did this with my hands. [LAUGHTER] Flipping the hamburgers. Eight hamburgers. Each one gotta flip ’em. Is my meat burning over there? No. Your meat’s not burning. [LAUGHTER] Do you think that
Guitar Hero would make them want to start playing
rock and roll because of you guys? Without a doubt. If I can get Stevie
Nicks to Twitter– Well, it really actually
would be something that no one else has ever done. How do you learn confidence? Give us one of
your biggest tips. If you don’t have it, fake it. You hold the Guinness
Book of World Records for the most hours on camera,
which is an incredible feat. And you’re trying to top it. Hey, Clayton. How are you, sir? Gary Sinise, always
great to see you. I had a chance to sit
down with Stanley. Take a look at Clayton Morris. He looks pretty slick,
he looks pretty cool. But believe it or not,
he was a Star Trek geek. This is the greatest
moment in my life. Next to you guys
being born, of course. We’re welcoming Clayton’s
baby into our Fox and Friends family. Happy Mother’s Day. I love you, hon. Thank you very much. Clayton Morris and his wife
welcoming their baby girl. Are there two children
for you here now? Because they’re telling
me there’s two children? Yes. I have two kids. OK. Were you just– I don’t
want to get too personal. But there’s a
possibility for us that– We didn’t think we were
going to have a third. But now we have a
third on the way. Yeah. This is Eve Morris. She was born just the other day. He has the cutest
kids I’ve ever seen. They really are. Our gadget guru, Clayton Morris. Let’s dive into some
of these gadgets. Oh haha. Does he have Batman socks on? No. He does not. With a cape. With a cape. Do you love Clayton Morris? Yes. [INTERPOSING VOICES] Yabba-dabba-do. I’ll see you next
week, everyone. Great times. Log onto our after
the show show. We’ll see you. Wow. What do you even say? You see your career flash before
your eyes in seven minutes. It’s amazing. Thanks to whoever put the– I know our amazing team
who put that video together and the amazing staff here. If we can get got a shot of
the control booth this morning? And by the way, when we take
a shot of the control booth, Tovah, my favorite
audio guy in the world, can you please play
some harp music? Some sad harp music? And I’m going to be–
seriously, the staff here has just been
incredible over the years. I’ve seen so many people
come and go and grow. And thank you. [LAUGHTER] It’s going to make me cry. So you guys have been amazing. And the staff here
has just been amazing. And I’m excited about this
new chapter in my life. And I don’t think
you’ll ever see me on television ever again. So I’m not going anywhere else. I’m just going spend
time with the family and focus on projects
that I’m passionate about, helping people build
wealth and passive income and helping empower people. That’s what I want to
spend maybe the next 40 years of my life doing. Clayton, I have to say you
are one of the very best in this business. I think Lane– I can speak for him, too– we both look up to you. And you’ve taught us so much. You’ve been here
almost 10 years. And everyone said on that
video, you make people laugh. You make me laugh harder than
I’ve ever laughed in my life. And that is, I’m
truly going to miss that in these early mornings
on this weekend show. Selfishly, we’re going to
miss the heck out of you. And in learning, too, I
say what would Clayton do in that situation? Roll with it. That’s very sweet. And you’re a great broadcaster
and an even better guy. Likewise. You guys are amazing. And I’m going to miss
you guys terribly. And you know, you
guys will be great. And the thing about TV is just
it continues on rolling on. And there’s still news. You know, there’s
still news that needs to be reported every day. And gosh, to think
about the news cycles that we go through
on a regular basis. So you guys are great
stewards of that. And I’ll look forward to
tuning in to you guys. Well, I’ll be sleeping in. Well, the audience– I thought about,
what should I do? You know, Joan
Lunden, when she left, she smashed her alarm clock
live on David Letterman’s show. And I said that sounds
like a great idea. Except I use my iPhone to
wake up in the morning. Don’t do that. Yeah, don’t do it. So there’s no way in hell I’m
going to do that because I just would be hurting myself. You know? Because I have to make
phone calls and stuff. So I can’t do that. Cheers to Clayton Morris. Cheers to you. You are going to
be missed, Clayton. The audience will miss you. But best of luck to you
and your beautiful family. And a beer at five to nine AM. Love you all. I’ll miss all of you. More Fox and Friends
just moments away.

  18. Setting here at 33, watching you be able to walking away in your own path at 40 is inspirational. That job looks like the all American dream’ but yet you left it. Passive income is the the way.

  26. What a guy! Wow…. God Bless Clayton, your family, and your new job…. Fox is boring now….. ( I love Fox).

  27. First heard you on Biggerpockets and that podcast changed my entire thought process. Took something complicated and brought it down to a simple level. I go back and listen to it again and again. Good luck and Godspeed. I’ll be here learning and growing from your example. Thank you.

  28. We're all very proud of you Clayton, thanks for being such a huge inspiration and awesome mentor, I look up to people like you, and I hope to do the same one day! Best of luck to you and your family!

  30. That's great bro!

  31. You're a pretty good sport, Morris!

  32. Brass balls to stand up for your dream in front of millions and walk away from the system (matrix halloween episode ), to start living. Nice work clayton. I'll see you, at the top.

  33. I only recently became aware of your Morris Invest YouTube channel, I never watched Fox & Friends but it looks like you had a fantastic time there! Keep on educating us about real estate investing, you’re my mentor!

  34. DEFINITELY More important to us….. You are the BEST at everything you do Clayton….. especially helping others! I'm looking forward to your consultation!

  35. You will be missed!  On to new adventures. . .  🙂

  36. Always hard leaving something you have so much of your time invested into. The right move no doubt buddy.

  37. So cool! Best of luck with the new adventures!

  38. Beautiful, Clayton! I've left most of my jobs screaming.

  39. You are awesome Clay! I'm also a real estate investor and consider you as one of my mentors.

  40. lol! I knew you looked familiar. What a jump the real estate industry needed someone from the east coast to share knowledge. To many west coast people do not understand how the east functions! Thanks

  41. Clayton we love your passion and helpful spirit. Thanks for giving us more of your time. It's helping so many of us out here. Excellent quality information. Blessings to you and your family.

  42. wow, just wow! You inspired me before but now I'm fired up! If you can leave such a prominent job, then I KNOW I'm on the right track! God bless you.

  43. Holy cow! I just stumbled upon your YouTube channel a while back when looking at Real Estate Investing videos. I had no clue that you had such a career in television! Your channel is an excellent reference for people to gain ideas from. Thank you for your contributions.

  44. Salute your goal stay bless

  45. Awesome love to see your success !!
    Great story !

  46. the CLAY rules!

  47. I am next!!!!

  48. A normal Fox News person wow, so rare indeed.

  49. Wow man great life and family. thank you for everything you do I am really motivated.

  50. Love the emotional goodbye; the mix between sadness, happiness, fear, relief and anticipation. Much love to the whole Morris family ❤️

  51. I’m a little late to the party, but I’m more than happy for you and your family. Fox and Friends is the best news morning show ever. I remember you 15+ years ago on some local morning news show that I watch in Eastern Washington. Always thought you were the coolest most genuine guy in the room. Your are living the dream now. I have learned so much from you already in real estate and will continue.
    Thank you.

  52. hey thats cool Clayton
    never knew you were in broadcasting

    no wonder you are such a people person! thats a good video idea for you. how to achieve a more social and commanding personality in real estate business

  53. Thank you for leaving. Your calling has blessed my family ♥️

  54. You show us to follow our dreams

  55. I was wondering where he went. I am glad he is doing ok.

  56. I've been in IT since 1980, been a programmer since 2000, been with the same company as a Sr. Software Engineer for 8 years. I got my bachelor's degree in IT, Software Engineering a little over 2 years ago. I just turned 57. As soon as I finish the rehab on my house (probably within the next couple of months), I'm going to quit my job, moving to Arizona and will jump into Real Estate with both feet. I'm DONE making other people wealthy while being left behind.

  57. I dont blame him for being upset although when I leave my construction job I'll be crying for a different reason lol.

  58. Who could possibly dislike this video lol

  59. Wow, just discovered that you were a TV personality. I've been watching a lot of your real estate videos over the past few days and thought you were just some regular guy trying to sell us something 😉

  60. I’ve watched probably 20 of your videos since finding this channel less than a month ago. This one is definitely a fantastic one. Didn’t know you were in broadcasting. Great stuff. Thank you for the amazing knowledge you share. Keep up the great work 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  61. I give you so much credit Clayton! You're living your dream & that's amazing. It takes a lot of courage and guts to walk away from an excellent career to follow your dream. Good for you man!
    99% of people wish they can do what you did! You call the shots and you can sing "My Way"..

  62. Holy Hell, I knew I saw you somewhere. Wow!!!!! Amazing

  63. Wow! I knew I loved you and Natali (with your Morris Invest advice) but I had no idea you were on Fox and Friends. I am SO incredibly inspired right now. This gives me even more gumption than ever because I realize now that it really is “OK!” (I.e. not so scary) to transition from a career I’ve built for 2 decades. Thank you guys!!

  64. Wow, I never knew you were on Fox! I don’t watch the news but I’m glad you made the transition and are helping so many more people
    With this channel!

  65. What a shame you'll now lose everything and get a fresh pad in a fed penitentiary for defrauding 100s of investors

  66. I remember this episode. Big fan!

  67. Wow I've been watching your investing channel for the past few months and never knew the magnanimity of your previous career. I've heard you mention here and there in podcasts; but had never seen an actual segment. It's not that I don't watch Fox, occasionally I watch a bit of news… it's just that I actually watch very little TV – lifelong habit, especially since the advent of internet browsers. Well this explains your instantly likeable, ingratiating aura on screen. For me it gives your Brand awesome credibility knowing that your decision to build a business was informed by personally experiencing that, no matter how glamorous it appears, the benefits in the cushy corporate world cannot compare to controlling your own financial destiny. Cheers!

  68. Clayton your the best and I've been learning so much from you when it comes to real estate, thank you brother!

  69. So, now after a failed attempt in real estate, he is crying crocodile tears in Portugal. Like Roger Ailes, Bill O'Reilly, Eric Bolling and all the creeps who left the Faux News network in disgrace, we now learn that Morris has been accused of crimes. When will the cult of Comrade Trump-ski stop drinking the Orange Kool Aid?

  70. crook!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  71. Morris’s moving to Portugal…which just happens to be a “no extraditions” country. Innocent people don’t run. Also his wife’s quote comparing what they are going through to going through Chemo-therapy is a callous, thoughtless and distasteful.

  72. did you steal people's money?
