At Fox News, timing is everything.
As Media Matters pointed out, the Fox News panel was discussing the enforcement of immigration laws on “The Five” when co-host Bob Beckel spun into a tangent about his comments not being taken for facts.
To which Guilfoyle said, “Waah, waah, crybaby. Call your camp counselor.”
“Call your dressmaker,” Beckel replied.
“And give him a raise,” Guilfoyle shot back, gesturing toward her outfit. “That’s what I’m saying. That’s what I’m saying.”
Gutfeld replied to Guilfoyle: “You are giving America a raise.”
“Oh my god,” Guilfoyle replied.
The Huffington Post has reached out to Fox News for comment on the remarks.
Fox News’ parent company, 21st Century Fox, confirmed Wednesday that it was parting ways with O’Reilly after reviewing multiple sexual harassment and behavioral complaints brought against him, and critics say the issue points to a wider cultural problem at the network.
Before O’Reilly’s ouster, Fox News co-founder Roger Ailes was removed as CEO last summer amid several sexual harassment claims, including one by veteran commentator Gretchen Carlson, who gave an interview to The Daily Beast Thursday on the issue at the network.
“Obviously, I can’t talk about the details of the case, but my goodness, I don’t need to,” said Carlson, who was reportedly “beaming” at the news on O’Reilly. “The benefit for me is that I can be an advocate for this issue. We’ve got a lot of work to do. I never expected to be the face of this issue. Who would?”
She’s working on a book titled, Be Fierce: Stop Harassment and Take Your Power Back, due for release in September, according to The Daily Beast.
