Fox News host Martha MacCallum scoffed at the idea of putting a woman on the $20 bill on Wednesday, suggesting to colleague Bill O’Reilly that men were unfairly excluded from consideration, Media Matters reported.
“To me, there are presidents on our dollars, OK? And two founding fathers,” she said. “I would like them to petition men or women ideas. I don’t like it being a ‘woman thing.'”
“There’s not a specific woman that you want to see on the $20,” O’Reilly asked her. When she said, “No,” the Factor host sarcastically suggested putting Madonna on the bill.
“Yes, she’s so deserving,” MacCallum replied.
“She’s a ‘material girl,'” O’Reilly argued. “It’s in context.”
As the Washington Post reported earlier in the day, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) has introduced a bill that would require the creation of a “panel of citizens” on the part of the Treasury to discuss removing former President Andrew Jackson (D) from the bill.
A grassroots campaign, Women on 20s, is inviting supporters to choose between four finalists — Cherokee Chief Wilma Mankiller, civil rights activist Rosa Parks, abolitionist and suffragist Harriet Tubman, and former First Lady and diplomat Eleanor Roosevelt — that were selected from among 15 initial choices.
“I don’t know if we should be politically correct with the money,” O’Reilly fretted on Wednesday.

Prince Andrew’s fate in potential Epstein lawsuit entirely in the hands of Donald Trump
MSNBC legal analyst Danny Cevallos said President Donald Trump has a unique ability to tip the scales in one possible legal case related to sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
The "Morning Joe" contributor was discussing the latest developments in the case, after Epstein's death earlier this month in jail -- two days after signing a new will.
"You can't hold the attorneys liable because someone wants to prepare a will," Cevallos said, "but remember, they fought to take him off suicide watch and they had to say he's not a suicide risk. otherwise, they would have kept him on suicide watch."
