Skip to comments...The moment Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson walked off set after co-anchor's sexist comment
Posted on 06/15/2012 6:02:55 AM PDT by C19fan
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.'

Dang it !!!!! I just cleaned my monitor and now I just sprayed coffee all over the darn thing. I just might laugh about that all day - thanks!!
Aging, bottle-blonde beauty queen whose hemlines are too short for her age...and who has no sense of humor.
What a humorless feminazi she turned out to be. We can’t even tell a joke that makes fun of the sexism of the past now without offending Gretchen’s sensibilities? Then she can walk off the set and stay off, for all I care.
Only libs or leaning-toward libs would miss this humor. Shame in Greta, she lost face in my book.
Gretchen Carlson’s family used to own a couple of GM dealerships in Minnesota that were shut down by Barack Hussein Kardashian; she has no use for the current occupier of the White House.
The reason Gretchen is there in the first place is that Fox likes to have a nice pair of female legs on display for the male audience. Unfortunately for Gretchen, she's 45 and looking her age, and will probably be replaced by a younger woman soon.
Out of control? It’s true ....I agree with him.
ED Had better legs than Grechen.
I've heard a lot worse said about men these days that were meant to be demeaning and belittling. I'm thinking that it is men now that are more under attack as a gender.
For cryin out loud!! I saw the show - she was smiling, not hacked off - Brian was laughing - IT WAS A JOKE and a mighty good one. My husband and I were both laughing at that one!! Brian always jokes around.
I was working at the polls a few years ago and a man came in and asked “do they let women vote here?.....” We all broke up in laughter - he then said “good, because my wife is out in the car - I’ll go get her”. HE had a big smile, his WIFE had a big smile and we all had something to laugh about. Same with Brian’s joke. LIGHTEN up folks. And yes - they ARE the good team, IMHO.
I think it is funny too.. everyone is just too sensitive these days.
Gretchen should be able to respond in kind. That is what made F&F fun to watch when E.D. Hill was co-host. Gretchen has loosened up but still appears to force her comments and reactions. I have grown to accept her in that spot but I don’t think it really suits her. The only way to deal with a smart A is to give it right back to them in a more clever way.
It looked to me as if they were both just joking around.
Not to be taken any more seriously than the thought of any one of them having more than a teleprompter’s take on things.
Enjoy the show, the emphasis, and the drama. Not too much to read into.
Irony, along with sarcasm and satire.
Her folks had their GM dealerships shut down by Barak Hussein Kardashien - INDEED they did.
She and her family have Zero use for Zero. She IMHO did NOT and will NOT vote for Zero. If you’ve ever heard her on Brian’s radio show (often there and has hosted that show) you will know she is no leftie overall.
That is clearly humor, it is not even close to over-the-top, and it's normal banter between men and women.
I'd say Gretchen has her girdle on so tight it's squeezed the humor out of her.
Bring back E.D. Gretchen is a pro-gay, pro-abortion liberal!
take a Midol ???????? really????????
That isn’t a joke, is it?
Thanks for explaining- since I didn’t see it I was jumping to a conclusion :)
