Fox News’s “The Five” wants young women to know that you’re really too stupid right now to participate in public life. Not too stupid in general — someday, you’ll be old enough and conservative enough to vote or serve on juries. Just not right now. The Five discuss the age and gender gap as it could influence the midterm elections and then veers off to let young women know that right now, while you’re healthy and hot, you should just focus on Tinder and Match.com and let the grownups make the decisions.
The fun stuff starts at 2:25.
GREG GUTFELD. Well, to Bob’s point, he is right that married women tend to be more conservative. But that also correlates with age. And with age comes wisdom. And it’s a known fact that the older that you get, the more conservative you get, and I always tell young people, “You don’t have to wait to become a conservative –”
KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE. To get a brain.
GUTFELD. “Don’t waste your time.” But the point is, a lot of women have also caught on to the big joke, which, it seems to be even more sexist to assume that women cannot take care of themselves because they’re women and therefore need the government to take care of them.
GUILFOYLE. Right! That’s the thing! But when you’re young like that, you think — The same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea, they don’t get it, they’re not in that same, like, life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortgage, kids, community, crime, education, health care. They’re, like, healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world.
BOB BECKEL. They’ve got every right in the world — They have every — They shouldn’t be on jur — They have every right in the world — They’re —
DANA PERINO. It’s the same when you’re choosing a jury.
GUILFOYLE. I didn’t say they shouldn’t be. I just think they can excuse them so they can go back on Tinder or Match.com.
Women! Know your limits!
