Fox host explodes at misogynist CEO: ‘Completely backwards’ to say God didn’t intend women presidents

A Texas CEO who has said that women should never be president defended her assertion on Sunday, telling Fox News that God created different roles for each gender.

After a Facebook post criticizing Hillary Clinton presidential campaign went viral earlier this month, Go Ape Marketing CEO Cheryl Rios explained to KTXA that women had “different hormones” that made them unsuitable for the nation’s highest office.

“With the hormones we have there is no way we should be able to start a war,” she argued.

On Sunday, Fox News host Anna Kooiman told Rios that she deserved a chance to defend herself after being “cyber-bullied to death.”

Rios noted that the controversy had started with Facebook comments that were supposed to be private, but she said that she stood by the remarks.

“I guess no one can call you sexist, which it must be nice,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson opined. “But you go on to make the point that it’s really the use of force that makes you uncomfortable in the hands of a woman. The one thing I think I would agree with, we assume women are more peace loving, and I don’t think that’s necessarily true.”

“We’re built completely different,” Rios declared. “The word hormone gets thrown around quite a bit, but I just believe in an old-fashioned way of things where the man is the head of the household, the man is the head of the free world, the country. And women take more of a subordinate role behind him.”

Kooiman interrupted, declaring that the anti-woman argument was “completely backwards.”

“That’s like telling a women, ‘You know, you can teach preschool, you can lead the choir, but you can’t be a pastor,'” Kooiman said. “That’s like saying, ‘You can be in the military, but you can’t be in a combat position, you can’t be in an elite combat position.’ You’re a CEO yourself, you’re a strong woman! What on Earth would make you think you can do this high-stress job, but not that one because of hormones?”

“God made us different! God made us completely different!” Rios replied. “He made men and women different and we have different roles. Just because I run a company doesn’t mean you have to agree with my opinion. We have different opinions and that’s what makes this world great.”

“Well, I’m not saying I agree with you — I obviously would never do that,” Carlson snarked. “But I admire you’re willingness to say unpopular things in this age of conformity. You are a brave woman, regardless of whether you’re right or not.”

The View co-hosts burst into laughter over Rudy Giuliani’s ‘Borat’ denials: ‘Please make it stop!’

"The View" panelists burst into laughter over Rudy Giuliani's denial that he did anything inappropriate with a young actress in the new "Borat" sequel.

President Donald Trump's attorney appears as himself in the faux documentary "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm," starring comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and Bulgarian actor Maria Bakalova.

Giuliani accepts an invitation to join Bakalova, who plays Borat's 15-year-old daughter, for a drink in a hotel bedroom after an interview, and Cohen bursts into the room after Guiliani lies down on a bed and stuffs his hand into his pants.

"He says he didn't do anything inappropriate," said host Whoopi Goldberg. "He's just sort of, you know, tucking his shirt in when he was laying on his back."

WATCH: Trump supporter gets tied up in knots defending president’s $750 income tax payments

Published

on

A support of President Donald Trump this week struggled to defend the president paying just $750 per year in federal income tax.

During an interview with CNN correspondent Elle Reeve, a half-masked Trump supporter said that he wasn't bothered by the president's low tax bill because he figured all rich people pay so little in taxes.

"I would love to be able to comment on that," he replied. "I don't know. And it's one of those situations where you and I can both sit here and say if we made that kind of money, you know, you're going to play the tax game. It's set for millionaires to play the game."
