Harvard University alum and Fox & Friends co-host Pete Hegseth wrote 'Return to Sender' across his diploma while on-air with a promise to send it back to the elite school over far left policies in the school's teachings he says are 'poisoning' children's minds.

Hegseth appeared on a segment of Sean Hannity Friday night with co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy who brought up his previous promises to send back his degree in protest of the school's beliefs. 

In his recently published book, 'Battle for the American Mind,' Hegseth details the 'destruction' of government education and encouraged people to mail their degrees back.  

On Saturday morning's Fox & Friends, Hegseth went through with his own promise. He insisted he was making a statement - not a stunt - about higher education when he pulled out his Master's Degree in public policy on air, removed it from the frame and wrote, 'return to sender' across it.

Hegseth then crossed out 'Harvard' and wrote in its place: 'Critical Theory,' making it 'Critical Theory University.' 

'Is your mom going to be mad?' his co-host Campos-Duffy asked Hegseth.

Very,' he responded. 'I don't think my wife's going to like this either.'

Hegseth said he hopes this is a statement that 'as conservatives and patriots, we can't keep sending our kids and elevating them to universities that are poisoning their minds.'

'People will say, 'this is just a stunt. You still have a degree,' and that's fine. I went, I got the degree, I walked into the classes, all of that,' he said. 'But I hope this is a statement as conservatives and patriots, if we love this country, we can't keep sending our kids and elevating them to universities that are poisoning their minds.' 

He also accused Harvard of pushing critical theory and not being as religiously focused as they used to be. 

'I don't want to elevate the prestige of Harvard considering what Harvard has become. The head chaplain at Harvard today, the president of the chaplains is an atheist. This was a university founded by John Harvard with the original motto of: for the glory of Christ. When you look at the ubiquitousness of critical theory, of Marxist thinking, of racist thinking, frankly, inside Harvard — why are we holding it up as the vanguard of what is the imprimatur of what makes someone credible?'

In 2021, New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik was removed from a panel at Harvard for making comments that perpetuated President Donald Trump's baseless claims of widespread voter fraud.

Stefanik accused her alma mater of caving to “the woke Left” after the school’s Institute of Politics on Tuesday dropped her from an advisory committee, citing her public remarks about fraud in the 2020 election. 

Hundreds of students and alumni had called on Harvard to cut ties with Stefanik, a 2006 Harvard graduate, after last week's violent insurrection at the US Capitol.

Following the university's announcement, Stefanik responded that it's a 'rite of passage and badge of honor' to be boycotted by US universities.
