Fox News host Kennedy on Thursday lashed out at her colleague Leslie Marshall for saying that she would like to see a woman become president.
“I’m a woman and I voted for Hillary Clinton. I didn’t vote for her because she is a woman,” Marshall said on Fox News’ “Outnumbered.”
“For over 200 years, this country has been run by men and we want our turn. Women want our turn. We feel that we deserve that in as the majority of the population,” Marshall added.
“I want to push back on that,” Kennedy shouted, “because it is so incredibly oppressive for people to say you have to vote a certain way with a group of people who sit in this basket — because you belong with them. You cannot think for yourself. You are not an individual.”
“That’s not what I’m saying,” Marshall tried to interject.
“That is absolutely the subtext,” Kennedy continued,” when people talk simply about race and gender and it’s offensive because you’re looking at people based on their race, based on their gender, saying you do not have the rational capacity to make your own decisions.”
Fox News host Melissa Francis ended up coming to Marshall’s defense. “Were you saying that you were going to vote for Hillary Clinton, anyway — that it was icing on the cake? I think that’s all she was saying.”

Scientists fight online coronavirus misinformation war
With cat photos and sometimes scathing irony, Mathieu Rebeaud, a Swiss-based researcher in biochemistry, has nearly tripled his Twitter following since the coronavirus pandemic began.
With 14,000 followers, he posts almost daily, giving explanations on the latest scientific research and, in particular, aims to fight misinformation that spreads as fast as the virus itself.
He is among a growing number of doctors, academics and institutions who in recent weeks have adapted and amplified their scientific messaging in hopes of countering what has been termed an infodemic -- a deluge of information, including widespread false claims, which experts say can pose a serious threat to public health.
Ted Cruz doesn’t want people shamed with body bags for going to beach: ‘Please stop the hate’
In early May, Florida attorney Daniel Uhlfelder made news by dressing up as the Grim Reaper in an attempt to scare people from crowding beaches during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Days later, he escalated by laying out body bags on the steps of the Florida capitol building in Tallahassee.
He escalated further on Saturday by announcing he would be handing out body bags to Florida beachgoers and started a fundraiser with the funds going to two progressive Political Action Committees.
The effort caught the eye of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
