On Friday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson and right-wing radio talking head Jesse Kelly used the segment to target women serving in the United States military, according to The Daily Beast. Of course, there is nothing else important going on, like a former President under the microscope after inciting the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection or the pandemic that is still tearing across this country. Sure, let’s rip on women who are serving in the military. Carlson, by the way, has never served in the military. He did try to get into the CIA, but he failed.
Carlson kicked off the segment by targetting remarks made by Christopher Grady, who was confirmed on Friday by the U.S. Senate to the post of Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Carlson played a clip from the hearing showing Grady expressing his support for the idea of “understanding the ecosystem” regarding the role of the military’s “gender adviser.”
Kelly, of course, launched a sexist rant.
“We don’t need a military that’s woman-friendly, that’s gay friendly” we need men “who want to sit on a throne of Chinese skulls, but we don’t have that now,” Kelly said. “We can’t get women off of naval vessels, that should be step one, but most are pregnant anyway.”

Well, that’s offensive. Oh, but there’s more.
Carlson somehow asked Kelly: “Do you think the key to remaining competitive with the Chinese military is more gender advisers?”
“Oh, there’s no question, Tucker,” Kelly said. “I mean, China right now, and Russia, they’re both testing hypersonic missiles that can turn New York City to ash. Russia is actually developing and has developed satellites that can push our satellites out of orbit and cripple our military. Our military, though, they’re focused on the important things. We want to focus on climate change, and we definitely have to make sure there are enough tampons in the restrooms at the Pentagon.”
“That’s kind of what they’re saying,” Carlson said. “There’s a psychological term for this, and it escapes my memory at the moment, where there’s a massive real threat that you can’t deal with, so you scurry off and deal with imaginary threats to make yourself feel in control. That kind of feels like what we’re watching.”
As if he wasn’t offensive enough, Kelly targeted the LGBTQ+ community, too.
“We don’t need a military that’s woman-friendly. We don’t need a military that’s gay-friendly, with all due respect to the Air Force. We need a military that’s flat-out hostile. We need a military full of Type-A men who want to sit on a throne of Chinese skulls, but we don’t have that now. We can’t even get women off of naval vessels,” he added. “That should be step one, but most of them are already pregnant anyway.”
Since they want to discuss manly men, perhaps they should have excused themselves and let two real men take over the segment. You know, the kind of men who support women and the gay community, instead of a couple of self-entitled dweebs who enjoy being judgy while offering nothing to society.
