Bolling apologizes for "boobs on the ground" insult, but Gutfeld doesn’t.

Last edited Sat Sep 27, 2014, 01:08 PM - Edit history (3)

...During a segment about Maj. Mariam Al Mansouri, a female pilot from the United Arab Emirates who led a mission this week against ISIS in Syria, Eric Bolling referred to her mission as 'boobs on the ground.'
'Problem is, after she bombed it she couldn't park it,' said Greg Gutfeld.
...
Now, after outrage from viewers, and even his own wife, following these insensitive remarks, he has apologized.

'I made a joke and when I got home, I got the look, and realized some people didn't think it was funny at all,' Bolling said on the air today...I said sorry to my wife and I apologize to all of you as well and want to make that very clear.'
...
Gutfeld still has yet to apologize for his statement.

When Ed Schultz made a sexist comment, he made a teary apology and was taken off the air for a week by MSNBC. Fox seems happy with a limp apology--or none at all in the case of Gutfeld.

3. atually, i think if the coment was made on our side, we would have those saying we have no humor.

6. When you look for the worst in people, you can usually find something to justify your opinion.

I'd rather focus on the positive.

9. chickenhawk can't stand a woman being tougher then him

a quick google of this chicken hawk showed no history of military service. And I am sorry I wasted any time on this fool.
I'll believe his apology when it is done on air, might still not accept it, might not trust it, he's gotta do it on air.

10. So Gutfeld made a "women drivers" joke?!?

 

What is it, 1958? Who makes jokes about "women drivers" anymore? It's ridiculous.

They really are living in some weirdo conservative time warp.

11. Yes. But Bolling ' s "boobs" line is getting all the attention.

Both are horrifically sexist.
