Skip to comments...The moment Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson walked off set after co-anchor's sexist comment

Gretchen Carlson walked off the set of 'Fox and Friends' today after her co-cost Brian Kilmeade made a sexist comment. Having just watched a segment on the U.S. Navy Sea Chanters presented by third host Steve Doocy, he ended by informing the audience that the group was all-male until 1980. Amused by that fact, Kilmeade joked, 'Women are everywhere. We're letting them play golf and tennis now. It's out of control.'

In the video she was back on in less than two minutes.
He’s clearly being ironic.
Irony is lost on simpletons and the politically correct.
Gretchen, best legs award.
Seriously? Gretchen- it was a JOKE. I wasn’t even a little bit offended..in fact I chuckled. Lot of thin skin and taking ourselves waaaaay too seriously is part of our problem.
She needs to grow up and I surely hope Brian wasn’t forced to “apologize” or worse..go to sensitivity training.
Its a typical Kilmeade type of comment. Its what makes him funny.
Killmede is F&F's class clown.
Seriously. We get "men are stupid" jokes (and entire sitcom premises) all the time.
That’s my take, too. At the beginning of the video she looks at him like she’s waiting for the set up.
Brian should speak up for the repeal of the 19th amendment.
Say that is when this country started its long road to the crapper.
That should get the NAGs stirred up.
Those comments sound more sarcastic than offensive, if you ask me.
They are ALL usless.
They serve no purpose in the morning.
The only more useless person in the am at fox is lefty Imus.
What a lousy sense of humor she has! What a jerk! She couldn’t send him a couple zingers and call it a draw?????
I’m so sick of these “easily offended knee jerk” jerks who walk around all day with a chip on their shoulder.
Unless she was told to make him a sammich, the woman co-host overreacted.
Must be in her cycle or something ...
I agree with Kilmeade.
“Amused by that fact, Kilmeade joked, ‘Women are everywhere. We’re letting them play golf and tennis now. It’s out of control.’”
She walked off the set over THAT?! It was a joke!
Must be PMS.
She was back yesterday after a few minutes
Get over yourself, Gretch.
Everytime I would hear a woman on the radio when I was up in the cockpit serving the pilots coffee, I would comment, “Another empty kitchen”.
Even you, with your lesser intelligence, know it was a joke. And you have proven yourself to be the weaker sex in that you are thin skinned and can’t take a joke.
YOU are the protected species with special rights. Cut your FRIEND some slack. Bet it is going to be real fun for you when your RESPECTED coworker is going to have to PUBLICLY APOLOGIZE and have to live with the humiliation from your fake disgust.
