Gretchen Carlson walked off the set of "Fox and Friends" on Thursday after fellow host Brian Kilmeade made a sexist comment.

The two were watching third host Steve Doocy interview a member of a Navy band which had been all-male until 1980.

“Women are everywhere," Kilmeade said. "We’re letting them play golf and tennis now. It’s out of control.”

With that, Carlson was out of her seat.

"You know what?" she said, walking away. "You know what? You read the headlines, since men are so great. Go ahead."

"Finally!" Kilmeade said, adding, "leaving an all-male crew."

"In all your glory, go for it!" Carlson said. As she departed, Kilmeade cracked, "eh, she needed a shower."

Here's the clip:


Gretchen is, very much in her own way deranged.  The whole show is.  Take any wingnut bug-a-boo — dlimate change denial, same-sex marriage hatred, evolution denial, etc. — this is all standard morning fare for Fox & Friends.  Except, apparently, when it hits home, huh, Gretchen?  Where were you when Rush Limbaugh was going after Sandra Fluke?

By the way, isn't there something very date-rapey about Brian Kilmeade?  Isn't there always something about him that comes across very date-rapey?
