Duckworth Blasts Tucker Carlson for His Comments About Women Serving in the Military

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) is firing back at Fox News host Tucker Carlson for his remarks regarding the military’s efforts to recruit more women.

“F*ck Tucker Carlson. While he was practicing his two-step, America’s female warriors were hunting down Al Qaeda and proving the strength of America’s women,” Duckworth wrote on Twitter Thursday, including a video of Carlson featured on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

She added, “Happy belated International Women’s Day to everyone but Tucker, who even I can dance better than.”

Duckworth joked, “And we all know it was his female partner who did all the hard work.”

Earlier in the week, Carlson raised concerns about pregnant women serving in the military.

“So we’ve got new hairstyles and maternity flight suits. Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It’s a mockery of the U.S. military,” he said.

Carlson added, “While China’s military becomes more masculine as it has assembled the world’s largest navy, our military needs to become as Joe Biden says more feminine, whatever feminine means anymore.”

He went on to argue, “It’s out of control and the Pentagon’s going along with this. This is a mockery of the U.S. Military and its core mission which is winning wars.”

Carlson’s comments garnered other strong reactions.

This is not the first time Duckworth took a swipe at Carlson, as IJR previously reported.

She responded to Carlson after he suggested in July of 2020 she hates America, “Does [Tucker Carlson] want to walk a mile in my legs and then tell me whether or not I love America?”

Duckworth lost both of her legs while serving in Iraq.


  1. First of all, a high-level elected official should not be using obscenities. It is unprofessional and immature.
    It was pretty clear to me that Tucker’s was addressing the role of pregnant women in battle. Since pregnant women are responsible for TWO lives, it would be ill-advised. I served in Vietnam 1968-69. I know women have an important role in the military. Look at the Israeli women soldiers-fierce.
    All due respect to Duckworth for her service and loss of limbs, but she’s just another Dem trying to slam FOX News and conservatives-including conservative women who have served.

    1. “First of all, a high-level elected official should not be using obscenities.” Janis

      Apparently, Janis never attended a MAGA rally. Before President Who? got elected, conservative mothers were concerned with what their children would hear from this clown, too.

      Janis is two-faced.

    2. I agree. I was taught that the use of obscenities shows a lack of an educated mind.
      While this particular woman made a great sacrifice it was her choice to serve as it is every citizen.
      All of the Dancing with the Stars drivel is pure childishness.
      It is apparent that Tucker is now going to live in her head.

      1. “I was taught that the use of obscenities shows a lack of an educated mind.” Sharal

        Just because you were TAUGHT that does not mean that it is true. You of all people should know that. You are just trying to be opportunistic about something that YOU want to feel superior about using social norms as an excuse to justify it. Didn’t work. Societal rules are designed to make you feel bad. Try feeling good about yourself for a change.

        1. GC HATER uses obscenities every time he looks at himself in the mirror each morning…
          his older brother and sister TAUGHT him that it was true and he should act more like a guy than a girl…. he’s still confused over that… but still curses himself each morning for the thong isn’t fitting the way his sisters thong fits… no wonder he is confused
