Brian Kilmeade, Fox & Friends co-host, heteronormative and mysogynist cheerleader and generally crepuscular example of human bigotry, has done it again. Yesterday on Kilmeade & Friends, in response to a caller's compliment to weekend co-host Alisyn Camerota, Kilmeade joked on-air that Fox hires female co-hosts by picking them out from a Victoria's Secret catalogue and asking "Can any of these people talk?" He made a funny, you see. Let the torrent of LOLs commence.


Camerota responded, laughingly, "YOU'RE CRAZY!!1111" Indeed.


In June, co-host Gretchen Carlson walked off the set when Kilmeade said that "women are everywhere. We're letting them play golf and tennis now." Kilmeade later defended himself by saying he was just having a yuk. Fox is hardly a first-time offender here, as the network's news chief Roger Ailes has previously admitted that he's concerned with whether female anchors are "attractive" enough for on-air work.
