Fox News contributor Tony Sayegh argued on Monday that the Girls Scouts had abused children by taking them to see President Jimmy Carter speak.
Hosts on Monday’s edition of Outnumbered agreed that a group of girls in California should not be allowed to join the Boy Scouts.
“It really makes me think, are we allowed to maintain any sort of classic American tradition in our culture and institutions?” Sayegh opined. “You know, there is a Boy Scouts and a Girl Scouts.
“It makes me sad in a way because we talk about this sometimes with transgender bathrooms,” he continued. “There should be a basic baseline common sense when it comes to our sort of — certain traditional values. I think this is one of those instances.”
Fox Business host Dagen McDowell recalled that she had hated Girl Scouts as a child because her troop had gone to hear President Jimmy Carter speak.
“Full disclosure, I was in the Girl Scouts and the Brownies and I hated it,” she told the co-hosts of Outnumbered. “I hated it because my troop leader took me to hear Jimmy Carter speak. And I was, like, this man is responsible for runaway inflation in this country.”
“That’s brutal,” Sayegh remarked. “That’s child abuse.”
“I dropped out after that,” McDowell revealed.
“You just blamed the entire Girl Scouts for Jimmy Carter,” co-host Andrea Tantaros pointed out. “I’m not disagreeing. Listen, I’m on your side.”
“I’m, like, we’re spending money to go here to see Jimmy Carter speak,” McDowell said.
“Why can’t boys have anything to themselves anymore,” Tantaros lamented in conclusion. “I don’t get it. Just let them have their own thing.”

Fox News host appears confused how phone calls work while doubting impeachment witnesses
On Tuesday's edition of "Fox & Friends," co-host Brian Kilmeade questioned the impeachment testimony of State Department aide David Holmes — and in the process, revealed his confusion about how telephone calls work.
"Now the big thing is, something that's not addressed, nobody else has seen, and no one's really questioned, is that when David Holmes came out and said, I was hanging out in a restaurant, having a bottle of wine, and I listened over, and there's the E.U. ambassador talking to what I think's the president," said Kilmeade. "Amazingly, he heard both sides of the phone call, and at which time Sondland said to the president that Zelensky 'loves your [ass]' ... Now we have not seen Sondland say that's true or not true, and I also find it hard to believe that people just accept that you can hear both sides of a phone call 3,000 or 5,000 miles away. I've never heard both sides of a phone call when you have it to your ear!"
MSNBC’s Mika shocked by Morning Joe’s withering criticism of House GOP: ‘I’ve never heard you accuse someone of that’
MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski was astonished by her co-host and husband Joe Scarborough's denunciation of congressional Republicans.
The "Morning Joe" hosts agreed GOP attacks on Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who earned a Purple Heart fighting in the Iraq War, and other impeachment inquiry witnesses were shameful, but Scarborough went even further in his criticism.
"People talk about the time, 'It's a time we're in,' -- no, it's not," Scarborough said. "It's lack of character among people on these committees, just a lack of character and a lack of love of country that they put their political party above their country."
‘He got caught!’: Adam Schiff gives impassioned condemnation of Trump to close out the day’s impeachment hearing
When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was gaming out the plan for impeachment hearings, she took a somewhat surprising step by placing the Intelligence Community front and center in the proceedings as it pursues the Ukraine investigation. And on Tuesday, after a long day of testimony from four critical witnesses, Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) delivered an impassioned speech that exemplified why Pelosi entrusted the trying task of leading the effort to him.
Schiff thanked Ambassador Kurt Volker and White House aide Tim Morrison for their testimony, noting that Volker had debunked Republicans' attacks on former Vice President Joe Biden.
