After Jimmy Kimmel did a hilarious bit of “mansplaining” to Hillary Clinton, Fox News’ Outnumbered show spent five minutes chewing over sour grapes.
Tucker Carlson introduced the segment, saying, “Who knew Jimmy Kimmel had campaign advice for Hillary Clinton? Turns out he did. With tongue in cheek, the late night show host has some pointers for the Democratic front runner.”
They played a clip in which Kimmel would stop Clinton during a speech to make such comments as, “You’re shouting. You’re too loud. …It comes off as a little shrill for men. …Oh, my god, with the sour puss. …Pretend you are enjoying yourself.”
Finally, Kimmel said, “You’re not doing it right. I can’t quite put my finger on it. You’re not…” Clinton responded, “A man?” Kimmel said, “Yes that is it. You’re not a man.”
Carlson whined, “There you go, shilling for Hillary Clinton a little bit on late night TV.”
Cohost Dagen McDowell also complained, “Oh, imagine that! I’m just waiting for carpool Karaoke.”
Then they began attacking Clinton for calling out sexism. “The substance of the campaign, basically, to this point, has been ‘I’m a woman my opponent is not. Vote for me.’” Carlson sneered. “Is that a message that can bring you to the White House?”
McDowell, of course, thought not. She complained that Clinton “uses her gender as both a sword and a shield.”
Carlson continued, “It’s unbelievable. This is one of the richest, most powerful, famous women in the world. Who hasn’t driven her own car in 30 years and yet she tells us she’s a victim. Is that plausible?”
Democrat Julie Roginsky cited a FOX News poll where Clinton leads Sanders among women, 57% to 34%, and leads Trump 53% to 34% among women. Women are flocking to Clinton, Roginsky pointed out, and she thought it was probably more for Clinton's policies than her sex.
Roginsky added, “Her cause is helped by what we talked about earlier, which is you have a bunch of men both running against her and also in the pundit class who are saying things about her. That she’s shrill. That she’s shouting.”
“Maybe she is shrill. Maybe she is shouting, what does that have to do with her gender?” Carlson asked.
“When was the last time you had a man being accused of being shrill?" Roginsky shot back. "That is such a code word."
Carlson claimed he thinks “a lot of men are shrill."
Roginsky replied, “I don’t think I’ve ever heard a man be called shrill.”
McDowell claimed, “I called Ted Cruz shrill.”
Then came the most laughable part, via Carlson: “Can I just call BS on this? No man on television has called Hillary Clinton ‘shrill.’”
“Oh please,” Roginsky said.
“Because that is a felony offense and everybody knows it,” Carlson said. “Nobody uses the word ‘shrill.’”
One quick search proved him wrong. Watch it below, along with the Fox News whinefest, from the March 25 Outnumbered.
