The hosts of Fox & Friends on Monday worried that they would have a difficult time shopping for children in the future because Target stores were eliminating gender labels from their toy aisles.
Target said last week that it would remove gender labeling from the toys section and some other areas in response to criticism on social media over separate labeling for “Building Sets” and “Girls Building Sets.”
“They’re going gender neutral, whatever that is,” Fox News host Steve Doocy said while teasing an upcoming segment. “Have the PC police gone too far?”
Later, as co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck was explaining the details of Target’s plan to remove gender labeling, co-host Brian Kilmeade interrupted: “How do you do that?”
At that point, the hosts cut to a live report from a Target store where gender labels would be removed later in the day.
“Is this going to confuse you? I know it’s going to confuse me,” Alcides Segui of Fox affiliate WTVT laughed. “And they’re doing it not only at this store here in Tampa but all Target stores across the country.”
“Wow!” Kilmeade exclaimed following Segui’s live report.
“How many times have you gone into a store — when I go to buy glasses,” Doocy remarked. “And all of them are up on the wall, I will ask the person, ‘Are these men’s or women’s?'”
Hasselbeck, however, predicted that the signage would not be a problem for her children because they would “end up self sorting” the toys.
“But who are we helping?” Kilmeade wondered. “The nine people who are upset by this? If you go buy a gift for a boy who is nine or six or a girl who is nine or six, you want to be able to go to that section and pick out a toy they might want.”
“Now you have to sit there and look at a blended area and wonder, ‘Is this for a boy or a girl,'” he complained. “There’s going to be some unhappy boys and unhappy girls now.”

Trump is terrified that Russian interference is ‘undercutting his legitimacy’: ex-DNI lawyer
On Thursday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," Robert Litt, the former general counsel to the Director of National Intelligence, cut to the heart of President Donald Trump's fury over the ongoing reports Russia is planning to intervene to rig the presidential election in his favor.
"Why do you think he refuses to accept the intelligence, and now, by his behavior and this coincidence that is not a coincidence, seems to be having the same reaction again?" asked host Erin Burnett.
"Well, I don't want to go into psychoanalyzing the president, but it's pretty clear that he views the possibility that the Russians attempted to influence the election on his behalf is undercutting his legitimacy in some respect," said Litt. "He's working backwards from that conclusion to talk about the facts ... this has been a consistent pattern all along of denial of what the intelligence community is finding."
WATCH LIVE: Donald Trump holds 2020 reelection rally in Colorado Springs
Donald Trump was late to take the stage at a campaign rally in Colorado Springs after a bombshell report that Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin was one of the president's 2020 supporters.
Trump was scheduled to begin speaking at 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time at the Broadmoor World Arena, which has a capacity of 8,000. Trump took the stage 25 minutes later.
The rally is seen as a thank you for Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), who voted to acquit the commander-in-chief following the Senate impeachment trial.
Garner is facing a tough re-election in 2020 in a state that has been trending Democratic.
‘That’s a bombshell, that’s an earthquake’: NBC reporter sounds the alarm on Russia’s latest efforts for Trump
The New York Times broke the story Thursday that Russia is supporting President Donald Trump and is already hacking the 2016 election to help his reelection.
It was something NBC reporter Ken Delanian called a "bombshell."
"It is the worst nightmare of many of my sources in the intelligence world," he said. "It's bad enough to learn that there is classified intelligence that Russia is interfering again and trying to elect Donald Trump. We should be careful about that because it is not clear what it means. Does it mean disinformation on social media, does it mean intercepts that suggest people in the Kremlin are discussing the campaign? That is bad enough, but then the notion that because a briefing of that information was delivered to a bipartisan group of lawmakers, that cost Joe Maguire the job? That is a bombshell."
