If there’s one place we can go to hear a level-headed and non-misogynistic analysis of a female pilot bombing ISIS, it’s FOX News.
…OK, now that you’re done laughing at the above statement — On Wednesday, The Five addressed Major Mariam Al Mansouri, a United Arab Emirates pilot’s leadership in the air strikes against ISIS Monday night in Syria.
The segment began quite nicely, with Kimberly Guilfoyle celebrating Al Mansouri’s participation in the attack.
“ISIS, you’ve been bombed by a woman,” Kimberly Guilfoyle said. “The first female pilot, piloting for the UAE, there she was leading the strikes, dropping the bombs on ISIS Monday night.”
“Major Mariam Al Mansouri is who did this. I wish it was an American pilot,” she said. “I’ll take a woman doing this any day. I hope that hurt extra bad for [ISIS] because in some Arab countries, women can’t even drive.”
True, she was a bit vindictive at the end, but this is perhaps the best we could reasonably expect from FOX News — the glorification of a woman (any woman).
Unfortunately, Guilfoyle’s cohorts decided to figuratively piss in her coffee by injecting the typical misogynistic attitude we have come to expect from the “news” network.
“The problem is after she bombed it, she couldn’t park it,” Greg Gutfeld added.
“Now, did you really have to ruin my thing?” Guilfoyle asked, visibly angry. Since she is a woman, however, her co-hosts did not even acknowledge her dissent.
“I salute her!” Gutfield continued, as though Guilfoyle had not spoken.
“Would that be considered ‘boobs on the ground’?” Eric Bolling quipped, also ignoring his female co-host’s obvious distress over their moronic remarks.
“What kind of salute would you salute her, Greg?” Andrea Tantaros asked.
“Oh my gosh,” a dismayed Guilfoyle asked as she hung her head in her hand and fully appreciated the environment in which she works. “Why did he ruin my thing? Why did he ruin it?”
