A Fox News host who joked that women have all the rights the need because they can shop got a two-word response from The Young Turks co-host Ana Kasparian on Tuesday: “Fuck you!”
Fox News co-host Greg Gutfeld on Friday ranted against the National Organization for Women (NOW) because they organized a boycott of Rush Limbaugh after he called a Georgetown University law student a “slut,” but they had not protested HBO comedian Bill Maher or CNN contributor Hilary Rosen for their remarks about conservative women.
“The only people that are in NOW are the people who work in NOW,” Gutfeld argued. “There are more women in NASCAR than NOW.”
“Perhaps they are a victim of their own success,” he added. “There not as relevant as they are anymore because, for example, women have all the rights, you know, they can shop.”
Kasparian responded during on online segment of the The Young Turks on Tuesday.
“I love that,” she quipped. “Women have all the rights they need. They go shopping. I’m going to make an argument that misogyny doesn’t exist — that women have all the rights that they want — by making a sexist comment about them.”
“Fuck You!” Kasparian exclaimed. “That’s just what Fox News is. They hire clowns to make clownish arguments.”
“You know that he’s partly tongue-in-cheek,” co-host Cenk Uygur pointed out. “Except that they’re not because the policies that they advocate are against women. You know, they’re not for equal pay, for example — let alone the reproductive rights, etc., etc.”
“The only decent point he had — you can make a conservative argument for NOW has outlived its usefulness because they were so successful in the past that women do have equality of opportunity, etc., etc. That’s a conservative argument you can make on Fox News that has no problem. Agree or disagree, at least it’s a legitimate argument.”
According to NOW’s website, the organization currently has “more than 500,000 contributing members” and more than 500 local chapters and affiliates.

CNN conservative zaps every Trump supporters’ argument against impeachment
Republican-turned-Independent David Gergen served in four presidential administrations, two of which were impeached. When he heard one of President Donald Trump's shills on CNN Wednesday evening, he was quick to flatten the argument.
Scott Jennings argued that what Democrats were doing was unprecedented, but CNN commentator Kirsten Powers said that former President Bill Clinton was nearly thrown out of office for lying about an affair, something she argued was far less important than extorting a foreign power to sway a presidential election.
Seth Meyers flattens Trump’s latest impeachment defense tactic — ‘slurring like a lunatic’ during rallies
Late-night comedian Seth Meyers observed that most people who were inches from being fired from their job would try and prove that they should remain. President Donald Trump, however, has taken a different path, "slurring like a lunatic while throwing in some of his trademark sexism."
Meyers played a clip of Trump's rally where he went after everything from admitting he demanded the Ukraine president say what he asked and an allegation that there'd be windmills all over the country under Hillary Clinton. Trump previously alleged that wind energy is dangerous because the windmills cause ear cancer. After an attack on Beto O'Rourke, Trump turned to Elizabeth Warren, who he said, "opened her fresh mouth."
Rachel Maddow wonders if Putin told Trump Seoul was nowhere near North Korea to mess with him
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow was flabbergasted by the recent revelation that Trump thought he could displace an entire South Korean city so that the 2,000 year-old capital would be safer. To make matters worse, President Donald Trump asked Russian President Vladimir Putin what he wanted the U.S. leader to do with North Korea.
The host compared the move to what it would be like to move the entirety of New York City, which has a smaller population than Seoul.
