Fox News host Andrea Tantaros asserted on Tuesday that men in the United States could get their “masculinity back” by voting for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
At a campaign event on Monday, Trump reminded supporters that Clinton had been favored to win the 2008 presidential nomination before she “got schlonged” by President Barack Obama. He also accused Clinton of doing something “disgusting” in the bathroom during Saturday night’s Democratic debate.
On Tuesday, Fox Business host Stuart Varney asked Tantaros how damaging the comments would be to Trump’s campaign. But instead, Tantaros argued that the GOP candidate’s sexist remarks were actually “really bad” for Clinton.
“I’m not going to take the bait on this one,” Tantaros said. “I don’t think people care about rhetoric this time around. That old dated playbook of let’s change the discussion and let’s get Stuart Varney and Andrea Tantaros to talk about a word that could possibly be offensive and hurt women’s feelings — I’m not going to do that.”
“Trump’s language might be a plus for him?” Varney wondered. “That’s what you’re saying.”
“You know why?” Tantaros replied. “The left has tried to culturally feminize this country in a way that is disgusting. And you see blue collar voters — men — this is like their last vestige, their last hope is Donald Trump to get their masculinity back.”
“Do you want that man in the Oval Office saying that kind of thing?” Varney asked.
“I think this is a different game,” Tantaros insisted. “I think people are sick and tired — men are sick and tired of being feminized, people are sick and tired of having to apologize, they’re sick and tired of hurt feelings, they’re tired of it all and the political correctness is not going to win.”

Longtime GOP strategist explains why his party is getting crushed in the war of ideas
Republican strategist Stuart Stevens on Wednesday warned the GOP that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) might not be a pushover candidate against President Donald Trump in 2020.
Writing on Twitter, Stevens admitted that he had "no idea" if Warren would beat Trump next year, but he did say that "Trump and supporters are destroying [the] credibility of any center-right argument" thanks to Trump's "corrupt and unstable" governance.
When one of Stevens' followers said that Warren would not be able to fulfill her promises just by taxing the wealthy, he countered that this idea is still more popular than anything Republicans are championing.
Japan wants to dump Fukushima radioactive water into ocean
Japan's top government spokesman slapped down the environment minister on Tuesday after he said there was "no other option" but to release radioactive water from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean.
"It is not true that we have decided on the disposal method," Chief Cabinet Minister Yoshihide Suga told reporters after Environment Minister Yoshiaki Harada's comments earlier in the day.
