"Presenters on US cable channel Fox News cracked a series of sexist jokes after reporting A FEMALE pilot from the UAE had taken part in a bombing mission of Isis targets in Syria, describing her as “boobs on the ground”.

One presenter, Kimberly Guilfoyle, tried to pay tribute to Major Mariam al-Mansouri, 35, one of four UAE fighter pilots to take part in the by “Hey, Isis, you were bombed by a woman,” she said. “Very exciting, a woman doing this … I hope that hurt extra bad because in some Arab countries women can’t even drive.”

She “Major Mariam al-Mansouri is who did this. Remarkable, very excited. I wish it was an American pilot. I’ll take a woman doing this any day to them.”

But after the segment, co-host Greg Gutfeld interrupted Guilfoyle, mocking the pilot. “The problem is after she bombed it she couldn’t park it,” he said. Another presenter, Eric Bolling, joined in, asking: “Would that be considered boobs on the ground or no?” The conversation between panellists, which was broadcast on Wednesday, was part of discussion show The Five on Fox News.

Embarrassed, Guilfoyle hung her head, saying: “Oh my gosh, why did they ruin my thing?” Another voice was heard afterwards saying: “Did you just say what I thought you said?”

can someone confirm this happened? What is the exact context?

what is even more delightful was that these same presenters a week back was beating their war drums against ISIS because they are 'medievalist thugs who have a regressive view on women.'

Biggest load of bull$hit!

OT: Good to see you Indi!!

Same here Ravi! One of the few times you've ventured out to start a new thread I see. :-)

There MUST be a parallel universe where FOX and Times NOW have been served closure notices, innit? :undecided:
