Fox News host Brian Kilmeade was called out Monday by his co-hosts after he referred to women as babes and skirts.
The former sports anchor announced that he agreed with a recent Men’s Health Magazine poll that found that 73 percent of men don’t mind being with a woman who makes more money.
“See, I think that number is higher than that,” co-host Steve Doocy declared.
“What?” asked Kidmeade. “You think that 90 percent of men wouldn’t mind if their babe, their skirt, their chosen one was making more money?”
“Excuse me,” co-host Gretchen Carlson interrupted. “What? And it’s amazing women make more than men with those kinds of thoughts!”
Kilmeade has used sexist language before. During a July segment about car preferences, he also referred to women as “babes, chicks” and “skirts.”
