Bloomberg Politics Put Together Supercut of Gretchen Carlson's Co-Hosts Commenting on Her Appearance
The compilation comes a day after the former Fox News anchor filed a sexual harassment lawsuit in which she claims she was let go for rebuffing Roger Ailes' sexual advances.
A day after former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson claimed in a sexual harassment lawsuit that she was let go as retaliation for rebuffing Fox News chairman/CEO Roger Ailes' sexual advances and that her Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy "created a hostile work environment by regularly treating her in a sexist and condescending way," a video compilation has been created that featured Fox News clips in which Carlson's colleagues comment on her appearance, gender and outfits.
In the video, put together by Bloomberg Politics, Brian Kilmeade is shown talking about whether the show is too hot and he says, "But Gretchen is really too hot. Blame her!” Eric Bolling meanwhile is shown saying of Carlson, “Gorgeous, gorgeous! Look at her today. Beautiful dress. You look wonderful."
There are multiple conversations about Carlson's skirts and when she says she herself was called "a skirt," she offers to bring the HR manual to Kilmeade's office after the show. At the end of the clip, Carlson laughs and calls Kilmeade sexist, mocking his defensive response.
While Doocy is seen throughout the supercut, Kilmeade and Bolling seem to make most of the comments. In her suit, Carlson accuses Doocy, who's not named as a co-defendant, of "severe and pervasive sexual harassment" off the air and "generally attempting to put her in her place by refusing to accept and treat her as an intelligent and insightful female journalist rather than a blond female prop."
Ailes has responded to Carlson's suit, saying, "This defamatory lawsuit is not only offensive, it is wholly without merit and will be defended vigorously."
