Gretchen Carlson is furious that Keith Ellison supports gender equality

Gretchen Carlson is the clueless co-host of the friendly sounding "Fox and Friends" morning show and she is pissed off. At who? About what? Well, Keith Ellison, of course, for supporting women's rights:

I recently hosted a forum in my district called Women's Rights in the Era of Extremism. And this is an era of extremism. These same people who want to shrink government till you can drown it in a bathtub also want mom to get back in the kitchen and take her shoes off and get pregnant. You understand? They are offended by strong, powerful women. And here's the sad part -- some of them are women themselves. Michele Bachmann being an example. So let's stand up -- let's stand up for women's rights, and brothers don't leave the sisters out there. We gotta be in this thing together.

My quoting of this passage uttered by Congressman Ellison probably just made Gretchen's head explode again like it exploded earlier today:

Let me just say this, as a strong, powerful woman, that is offensive. That is offensive. How dare you say that about any woman? You don't know what she wants. You don't know that she thinks it's OK to be back in the kitchen and pregnant. Are you kidding me? She wouldn't be running for president unless she wasn't a strong, powerful woman. She wouldn't be getting those people out on the sidelines there of all those streets in Iowa and every other state she goes to unless she was a strong, powerful woman. Just because she has a differing point of view from other people does not mean that she's not a strong, powerful woman.

As the strong, powerful woman, she claims to be you would expect Gretchen to stand up to people who disrespect women, for instance someone calling women (not a woman, but all women) manipulative (at the 2:20 mark):

Ah, but Gretchen doesn't bat an eye at this remark she quietly agrees and moves on to the next question. But Gretchen, you're a strong, powerful woman, I mean you said so yourself. You should be offended!

Let me just say this as a normal strength, short man, that is offensive Gretchen. You know everything there is to know about being an emotional, manipulative woman and you won't even call out your guest for her sexist labeling of all women as such. I mean, it must have taken you a lot of work and practice to become the emotional, and manipulative woman that you are today Gretchen, why let this hussy come in and just throw those terms around willy-nilly.

I expected more from you Gretchen, much more. I guess I'm back to watching Megyn Kelly.
