NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles) – The late Joan Rivers did it, and so did other guests on network talk shows — walk out of the set because they didn’t like the line of questioning by the host.
For the first time in network television history, it was the other way around : the host walked out on his guest.
We’re talking about FOX News conservative talk show host Sean Hannity. He just couldn’t handle his guest Gavin McInness.
McInnes, co-founder of Vice Media and noted transphobic, was on Hannity’s show recently to discuss women’s pay with FOX co-host Tamara Holder.
“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 God’s way, nature’s way of saying women should be at home with the kids.”
Holder, hardly a hero of modern feminism herself, immediately described the comments as “deplorable”. McInnes then told her she would be “much happier at home with a husband and children.”
At this point, Holder turned to Hannity and asked him to speak up and defend his women viewers. Hannity could only put his hand on his face and say, ‘Oh boy.’ Then Hannity walked out of the live broadcast.
Should we have more McInneses? Or should FOX News have more Hannitys?
We think the Sean Hannity show should move to FOX Entertainment. We might actually watch it!
