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.”

Maddow reveals how one state stood up to Trump’s USPS cuts — and won
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow's opening segment on Friday focused on a positive story of political pressure stopping one of the Trump administration's attacks on the U.S. Postal Service.
Maddow reported how NBC Montana reporter Maritsa Georgiou had doggedly reported on the removal of postal boxes in Missoula, where she is based. Missoula has been a long-time Democratic Party stronghold.
Montana has a competitive U.S. Senate election in 2020, with Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock challenging first-term Republican Sen. Steve Daines.
As Georgiou chased the story, she learned there were also plans to remove boxes in the battleground of Billings. And more planned for the blue town of Bozeman. And other towns.

Trump supporter shut down on Fox News: ‘Turns out Stephen Moore is not a very good epidemiologist’
University of Michigan economics professor Justin Wolfers mocked Trump 2016 economics advisor Stephen Moore on Fox News over the administrations bungled response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Let's not have economists play epidemiologists here, mate," Wolfers said in his Australian accent.
"We actually tried Steve's prescription, which was not shutting down, that's what the sunbelt states did," he explained.
"What have you got? You've got spreading disease everywhere and you've got the economies there forced to shut down," he explained.
"We tried what Stephen Moore wanted -- it turns out Stephen Moore is not a very good epidemiologist," Wolfers concluded.
