The hosts of Fox News Outnumbered refused to let Fox Business contributor Bernard McGuirk off the hook on Wednesday after he asserted that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was “the ultimate feminist.”
While discussing the news that Maine Sen. Susan Collins had become the latest high profile Republican to say she would not vote for Trump, Fox News host Sandra Smith noted that the GOP nominee was continuing to struggle with women voters.
McGuirk argued that a defection coming from a high-ranking Republican woman should not hurt Trump.
“Because I’ll tell you what,” McGuirk opined. “Donald Trump is the ultimate feminist.”
“Come on!” host Dagen McDowell exclaimed.
“We can’t you let you get away with that,” co-host Susan Smith remarked.
“If a woman attacks Donald Trump, he’ll attack her back just like he would with a man!” McGuirk bellowed. “He doesn’t look at her as a delicate little flower.”
“Facts are a stubborn thing,” co-host Meghan McCain shot back. “He’s doing very poorly with women, specifically college educated women, which is a demographic that normally just easy for Republicans to scoop up. He’s got you, Bernard, he needs me. He needs Sandra.”
“It has nothing to do with misogyny or sexism,” McGuirk insisted.
“I like you, I respect you,” McCain interrupted. “In all fairness, it’s directed at us! It’s not directed at you. He’s already got white men.”

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
