A Fox News panel suggested over the weekend that women “don’t need to talk” because being funny made them unattractive to men.
On Sunday’s edition of Fox & Friends, host Tucker Carlson pointed to a recent study which found that men were more attractive to women when they told jokes, but the same was not true for women who told jokes.
“Are funny women not attractive to men?” Carlson asked, turning to his panel.
Fox News contributor Katherine Timpf agreed: “I’m single because I’m so funny. That’s what it is.”
Former Miss New York Joanne Nosuchinsky argued that part of the problem was that “women are always thinking long term, it’s in our DNA. We want a mate for life.”
“We’re thinking we need a funny guy, someone who will be humorous the rest of our lives,” she explained. “Guys, they think short term, they’re not into the long term right away. They’re like, ‘She doesn’t need to be funny, she doesn’t need to talk. She looks good, we’re good.'”
“That’s a really good point,” Carlson replied.
“People don’t listen to how funny I am because they don’t care,” Timpf opined. “They’re like, ‘Oh, she’s got a nice face.'”

CNBC anchors argue on air: ‘100,000 people died… all you did was try to help your friend the president’
CNBC anchor Andrew Ross Sorkin on Wednesday accused co-anchor Joe Kernen of providing political help to President Donald Trump instead of reporting factual news about the coronavirus pandemic.
Kernen appeared to get under Sorkin's skin by dismissing questions about the relatively quick market comeback as the rest of the economy suffers in the midst of the pandemic.
"Joe, you missed [the stock market] 100% on the way down and you missed 100,000 deaths," Sorkin said. "So we can have this debate back and forth and you can try and question the questions I'm asking."
"Hold on!" Sorkin shouted when Kernen tried to interrupt him.
CNN’s John King astonished Trump keeps tweeting things that would get anyone else ‘fired in a snap’
CNN's John King on Wednesday expressed shock that no one has been able to convince President Donald Trump to stop tweeting unfounded conspiracy theories about MSNBC host Joe Scarborough murdering a staffer 20 years ago.
During an interview with David Gergen, King said it was particularly jarring to see Trump, in the middle of a pandemic that has killed 100,000 Americans, to be tweeting things that "if I tweeted them, we would be fired in a snap."
Gergen then looked back at how past presidents have handled tragedies, and he said Trump pales in comparison to all of them.
"This should be a week of national mourning, to have 100,000 deaths, the number we'll reach in the next two or three days, and the country is saddened by that," he said. "Traditionally, presidents bring us together for occasions like this. They brought comfort, they met privately with the families of the victims and cheered people up... and here now, we have completely the opposite. It's very, very sad."
The View’s Meghan McCain calls for cops to be charged for ‘blatant murder’ of George Floyd
"The View" co-host Meghan McCain called for charges against the Minneapolis police officers over the fatal arrest of George Floyd.
The four officers lost their jobs over the death, which prompted widespread protests that were met with tear gas and other violent tactics from police.
"There was huge amounts of protesters that took to the streets last night, and I think people are sitting in their homes and seeing what is blatantly a murder of a man on camera, and George Floyd, I watched the entire video," McCain said. "I know we didn't want to show the entire thing, but it's very graphic. It's very violent."
