Kimberly Guilfoyle has come under fire after making some comments about young women and the upcoming election. Co-host of The Five on Fox News, Guilfoyle suggested that young women should not vote because they don’t know much about politics or the world at large. According to Huffington Post, Guilfoyle feels as though young women don’t share the same “life experiences” as older women, and therefore, they are really not able to make educated decisions when it comes to voting. And her insults didn’t stop there.
“It’s the same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea. They don’t get it!” Guilfoyle added. They’re [young women] like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world. They can go back on Tinder or Match.com.”
Kimberly Guilfoyle is, of course, part of a conservative station that always seems to put a spin on their news coverage. In fact, Guilfoyle isn’t the first Fox News anchor to make headlines for comments about anyone who isn’t a Republican or in support of the GOP. In fact, Guilfoyle’s co-host Greg Gutfeld shared her sentiments, and while he didn’t really put a stamp on young women, he did suggest that younger people are less knowledgeable.
“Married women tend to be more conservative, but that also correlates with age. And with age comes wisdom and it’s a known fact that the older you get the more conservative you get,” Gutfeld said according to MediaIte. Of course, there are millions of people who disagree with both Gutfeld and Guilfoyle, and that’s not surprising.
Kimberly Guilfoyle made very bold statements on The Five, and people are certainly talking about what she said. This isn’t very different from controversial remarks made by other Fox News hosts from Sean Hannity to Megyn Kelly. These names wind up in the news often because they speak very directly and make claims and comments which many say are not based on fact.
There has been plenty of chatter about what Fox News anchors have said over the years. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Sean Hannity recently made headlines for praising Bill Maher. Despite their differences, Hannity admitted that he “provoked discussion,” and while Hannity said he doesn’t care for Maher as a person, he believes that he’s “good for America.”
“He says all these outrageous things. He’s almost become an iconoclast, because he is willing to speak the truth when so many others in the media are scared to death.”
