During a “Hannity” panel debate about the “gender wage gap” on Thursday night, Fox News regulars Gavin McInnes and Tamara Holder predictably locked horns. Then it went downhill from there. Way downhill.
The segment began with Hannity playing a clip of a recent Washington Free Beacon video in which Hillary Clinton supporters were told that, as a senator, she paid women 72 cents per dollar earned by men on her staff.
As McInnes and Holder argued, McInnes set off the fireworks with this observation:
“There’s different ways to look at the data, but the big picture is women do earn less in America – because they choose to. They would rather go to their daughter’s piano recital than stay all night at work working on a proposal.
So they end up earning less. They’re less ambitious, and I think this is sort of God’s way, this is nature’s way, of saying women should be home with the kids; they’re happier there.”
A flabbergasted Holder, who said she was “literally shaking,” couldn’t believe what she was hearing. After things really got hot, she turned to Hannity and said:
“I think that your guest here is doing a disservice to all of the viewers, doing a disservice to all of America.”
After McInnes took one more shot, Holder turned to Hannity and said:
“Jesus! This is absolutely disgusting! Sean, you should speak up for the viewers and let them know that your daughter should have a choice.”
Hannity said that women do have a choice, with which McInnes agreed.
Talk show “banter” at its finest.
