Fox News Anchor Walks Off After Co-Host’s Misogynist ‘Joke’

Hot wingnut on wingnut action

We’ve had many posts at LGF about Fox News morning show Fox & Friends, because it’s one of the craziest, most despicable shows on Fox. Creationism, climate change denial, racism, Birtherism; name a far right malfunction and you can bet Fox & Friends promotes it.

Well, this morning, Fox News caveman Brian Kilmeade actually managed to make such a disgusting sexist “joke” that his equally deranged right wing co-host Gretchen Carlson walked off the set.

I would have thought she’d be used to it, working at Fox News.

Youtube Video

On Fox & Friends Thursday morning, Steve Doocy interviewed members of the U.S. Navy Band about the band’s recent inclusion of women. Reacting to the segment, Brian Kilmeade remarked, “Women are everywhere. We’re letting them play golf and tennis now. It’s out of control.” Visibly upset, Gretchen Carlson, the only female host, walked off of the set. “You read the headlines. Since men are so great. Take them [women] away,” she said. Kilmeade responded, “All right. Finally.” Then, as she walked further off of the set, Kilmeade jeered, “Leaving an all male crew” and added “she needed a shower.”

"She needed a shower"?! WTF was that? Digging as fast as he could. Anywhere else he'd be gone.

I'm surprised he didn't yell after her, "Yeah, that's right, get in the kitchen and make me a sammich."

Curious to see how quickly Megyn Kelly turns on Carlson.

He probably did, you just don't see it in the clip.

You see, these people do not just turn their bile toward Democrats, liberals and gays, they turn on anyone they don't like, fellow conservatives, RINOs, women and minorities.

All women are RINOs.

"she needed a shower"

He may be more right than he realizes, I certainly would need a shower or three after working with assholes like these....

She wasn't disgusted. A disgusted person usually doesn't smile and return playful jabs. And that's why behavior like this will continue on the Fox and Ignorance morning show. She knows her "place"

Disgust would have been her getting up, removing her mic and walking off the set.

My inner 12-yr-old definitely wants to see AF1 do a 500ft flyover at Romney's next picnic. Advantage of incumbency.

From what I saw, I agree. She's been around those neanderthals for far too long.

26 allegro  Thu, Jun 14, 2012 9:51:35am

As mean spirited as RWNJ humor generally is, this whole exchange just looks like their normal "cute" banter. I don't see any sincere offense on her part.

27 Lidane  Thu, Jun 14, 2012 9:52:19am

She works at Faux News. Did she honestly think they wouldn't sink to that level?

Egypt’s women urge MPs not to pass early marriage, sex-after-death laws: report

Wednesday, 25 April 2012
Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW) has appealed to the Islamist-dominated parliament not to approve two controversial laws on the minimum age of marriage and allowing a husband to have sex with his dead wife within six hours of her death according to a report in an Egyptian newspaper.

[snip]
The controversy about a husband having sex with his dead wife came about after a Moroccan cleric spoke about the issue in May 2011.

Zamzami Abdul Bari said that marriage remains valid even after death adding that a woman also too had the same right to engage in sex with her dead husband.

As in a ski resort filled with husbands looking for young women, and young women looking for husbands, the situation is typically less symmetrical that mere words might suggest.

Good grief, it's as if someone's given the cretins the green light to just go ahead and let loose....

That looked rather staged. The reaction was disproportional, unless it was the peak of some on-going angst.

Still an act if you ask me.

They should rename the show to "Fox and Friends and Other Assorted Low Lifes." She deserves every insult they can throw at her. She's on Low Self Esteem Potion # $$$$. Jerkoffs and she is too.

43 Jan Smiddy  Thu, Jun 14, 2012 10:49:15am

This was a "work" -- like in professional wrestling. A fix, a fake, nothing genuine here. It was to give the old lady geezer audience an opportunity to say "you go girl!" and the old dudes a chance to shake their heads and mutter "women" under their breath.

44 JRCMYP  Thu, Jun 14, 2012 11:47:30am

When she said "Take them away" she was referring to the headlines, not women, IMO.

45 MikeTheModerateDemocrat  Thu, Jun 14, 2012 11:51:29am

Even if she is p.o.ed, she's unable to wipe the Crazy Republican Smile (tm) off her face. Of course her inability to do this will facilitate the "I was just kidding around" excuse that is sure to follow, and will be accepted without hesitation by their right wing dittohead audience.

46 Poiks  Thu, Jun 14, 2012 1:35:32pm

Problem is, it's exactly how conservatives behave. They toe the line except for the line they want to straddle personally.

Dick Cheney: Party-line conservative, EXCEPT gay marriage (his daughter is gay).
Megyn Kelly: Party-line conservative, EXCEPT paid maternity leave (announced when she returned from her paid maternity leave)
Gretchen Carlson: It's okay to be a bigot, as long as you're not bigoted against ME.

47 Patricia Kayden  Thu, Jun 14, 2012 5:30:43pm

So this "joke" was so offensive that Carlson had to walk off, but she's okay with all the other offensive nonsense on the show? Right! **Shakes head vigorously***

Dumb, Dumber, Dumbest -- you can decide which is which among the fatuous fellowship of FOX & Friends.
