Unbelievable! The co-host of Fox News’ ‘The Five’ has come under fire for asserting that young women don’t belong on juries, but on Tinder instead! Click to watch her astonishing remarks right here!
How ridiculous. Kimberly Guilfoyle, 45, strayed off topic during the Oct. 21 airing of the Fox News talk show The Five, and shockingly suggested that young women shouldn’t be allowed to vote or serve on juries because they aren’t mature enough!
Kimberly Guilfoyle Of Fox News Tells Women: Don’t Vote, ‘Go Back On Tinder’
We should have seen this coming! While debating whether the Democratic party’s “War on Women” strategy (which argues that certain Republican Party policies restrict women’s rights, particularly their reproductive rights) will backfire against them in the upcoming midterm elections, the hosts of The Five voiced a ton of anti-female opinions.
First co-host Greg Gutfeld seemed to suggest that young women who vote liberal are not “wise” enough to cast their ballots, saying, “With age comes wisdom, and it’s a known fact that the older you get, the more conservative you get.”
And that’s when Kimberly chimed in and exclaimed, “Same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea, they don’t get it. They’re not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortgage, kids, community, crime, education and health care. They’re like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world.”
Kimberly Guilfoyle Gets Offensive
Kimberly’s fellow co-host Bob Beckel attempted to rebound from this and said that young women have every right to serve on a jury. But when Kim should have backed down, she blurted out, “I didn’t say they shouldn’t be. I just think, excuse them, so they can go back on Tinder and Match.com.”
Wow! We’re so disappointed in Kim, who is actually an incredibly well-educated woman. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, Davis, and received her Juris Doctor from the University of San Francisco School of Law.
Kimberly has been quiet since the major backlash over her points of view, save for retweeting the few fans who supported her jaw-dropping remarks.
While we think that her statements were totally out of line, we want to know what YOU think, HollywoodLifers. Do YOU agree that the statements were offensive and just plain wrong? Or was it just out of context?
