Televangelist Pat Robertson asserted this week that women who wanted to serve their country in combat roles were probably sexual deviants inspired by the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
On the Thursday edition of The 700 Club, Robertson asked co-host Wendy Griffith why women would want to serve in combat roles even after the military announced plans to remove gender restrictions.
“The feminists have gotten to a point where women are going to be drafted and put into combat units,” Robertson remarked. “Why would any woman in her right mind want that?”
Griffith pointed out that “there are women warriors.”
“The Amazons!” Robertson snarked. “You’re living in trenches and eating K-rations and there’s mud and all the rest. Why would anybody want that?”
“I would go if I could take my makeup,” Griffith explained. “I’m not a good candidate, but I think there are some women that feel that call.”
“Maybe there’s a masochistic thing they want,” the TV preacher opined. “That’s bondage, that’s ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ squared.”
“You’re looking at somebody that’s been there, done that,” he concluded. “It ain’t something for a woman.”

CNN lays out damning timeline of Trump and Giuliani’s calls to Ukraine seeking dirt on Biden
Following Rudy Giuliani's extraordinary appearance on CNN on Thursday night, where he may have admitted the commission of a crime, the hosts of CNN's "New Day" compiled a timeline linking the approximate date of Trump's phone call that was flagged by a whistleblower to subsequent events involving Ukraine.
According to the timeline, presented by hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, Trump spoke with the president of Ukraine on July 25, with Giuliani meeting with him later that month.
What followed was the August 12 whistleblower complaint and then Trump blocking aide to Ukraine by the end of the month.
‘Game changer’: Morning Joe panel nails Giuliani’s confessional outburst as evidence for Trump impeachment
Panelists on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" agreed President Donald Trump's phone call to Ukraine's president should be a "game changer" -- and was clearly "impeachable."
The July 25 call appears to have triggered a complaint from a whistleblower, after the president allegedly offered military and financial aid to Ukraine in exchange for pursuing an investigation into Joe Biden's son doing business there.
"It does feel like a moment in time," said MSNBC's Donny Deutsch. "We've sat on this set after so many Trump's snafus and this is it -- this is a game changer. If the Democrats can't smell this. I've been going all along, step away from impeachment because when it's a process thing, when it's campaign finance, this is the big one. If this is the case, this is the Super Bowl, and the Democrats need to pounce aggressively."
Watch Rudy Giuliani’s stunning confession that he has been pressuring Ukraine officials for dirt on Biden
Attorney for the president Rudy Giuliani gave a combative, belligerent and downright incoherent interview on CNN Thursday evening, raving about a ballooning scandal involving Donald Trump and Ukraine.
Giuliani and Trump have apparently been pressuring the country to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a probe that could help the president’s re-election campaign. That massive scandal had been unfurling on its own for months, but it blew up Thursday when multiple reports revealed that a mysteriously suppressed whistleblower complaint in the intelligence community reportedly concerns Trump’s conduct and the country of Ukraine.
