Fox host: Female researcher likely rigged ‘smart women’ study because she’s bitter men won’t date her

Published

on

Fox News host Kennedy Montgomery speculated on Monday that a female researcher’s study about smart women was probably biased because she was bitter that men didn’t find her attractive.

A study published in a recent edition of Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin examined how men perceived women differently based on “psychological distance,” which they define as “the subjective experience that a target is close to or far from the self.”

Researchers Lora Park, Ariana Young and Paul Eastwick found that as the “psychological distance” decreased, men tended to be less attracted to smart women.

Fox Business anchor Charles Payne, Monday’s guest host on Outnumbered, said that he agreed with the study because smart women were harder to have relationships with.

“Men are at a disadvantage when it comes to a woman who’s smarter,” he opined. “It’s absolutely true.”

Montgomery interrupted to point out that “one of the co-authors of the study is a woman, who is conceivably an academic with a PhD, who has maybe had a very tough time meeting gentlemen in her life.”

“Perhaps there’s a bit of confirmation bias here,” she added. “I’m not saying that I know the woman or know anything about her. I’m just imagining that there might be cats, there might be reruns of [the TV show] Ally McBeal.”

“She’s using this study as confirmation why she’s having a hard time.”

Payne agreed: “A lot of times men associate smart women with being unattractive women.”

“As our producer would say, this segment may have gone off the rails,” co-host Sandra Smith concluded.

Lawrence O’Donnell throttles Donny Deutsch for saying Elizabeth Warren can’t beat Trump: ‘This is pure guesswork’

Published

Lawrence O'Donnell and Donny Deutsch had quite the exchange in the post-debate conversation on MSNBC Wednesday.

Deutsch tried to say that Sen. Elizabeth Warren's outstanding debate performance doesn't matter because Warren can't win in a match-up against President Donald Trump.

"I do not believe Elizabeth Warren, on stage with Donald Trump, beats him," he told the MSNBC panel. "And I think if we're honest with ourselves and we look hard at ourselves, I think a lot of people agree with me. It's — and I also think when you can label somebody a socialist, 57 percent of this country thinks that word is un-American. I'm not saying it's fair. When he can blanket Elizabeth Warren as a socialist, and he's on stage with her, the Democrats lose."

‘He clocked Beto’: Van Jones says ‘Castro came out of nowhere’ to dominate the first Democratic debate

Published

on

CNN host Van Jones asserted on Wednesday that former Transporation Secretary Julián Castro was the breakout star of the first Democratic presidential debate.

"I was super proud to be a Democrat," Jones said following the debate. "I thought they all did better than Trump."

The CNN host went on to call Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) a "college professor" compared to the other candidates, who he said were more like "graduate students."

"She is able to go back and forth between policy and the human thing," Jones marveled before moving on to praise Castro.

"It was Castro that came out of nowhere!" Jones exclaimed. "Nobody was talking about Castro. He did the Texas takedown, turned around, clocked Beto [O'Rourke]. I mean, you never saw it coming."

Published

on

Sen. Elizebeth Warren (D-MA) revealed at Wednesday's Democratic presidential debate that she has a plan to "deal with" obstruction from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) if she becomes president.

At the first Democratic debate of the 2020 election cycle, host Chuck Todd asked Warren about what he called "the Mitch McConnell thing."

"You have a lot of ambitious plans," Todd said. "Do you have a plan to deal with Mitch McConnell? If you don’t beat him in the Senate and he is still the Senate majority leader, it’s plausible you can be president with a Republican Senate."
