Sparks flew as a “wage gap” discussion quickly morphed into a fiery feminist debate on “Hannity” Thursday over whether a woman’s role should be at home or in the workforce.
Panelist Gavin McInnes, vehemently argued that women should be home taking care of the family rather than building a career.
“[Women] would rather go to their daughter’s piano recital, than stay all night at work… they’re less ambitious,” he said.
Show host, Sean Hannity, introduced the discussion by pointing out the fact that Hillary Clinton paid the women in her Senate staff less than men.
Fox News’ contributor Tamara Holder tried to disagree with Hannity until McInnes butted in.
“Women do earn less in America, because they chose to,” he said.
“I think this is sort of God’s way, nature’s way of saying, women should be at home with the kids. They’re happier there.”
Holder was floored, and urged the audience not to take McInnes seriously.
“Your comments are absolutely deplorable,” Holder said.
That only emboldened McInnes, who told Holder that feminists should be cheering for the housewives instead of for the women who are “wasting their time” at work.
“Most women are happier at home, they are pretending that they like working,” he said.
Holder challenged him, “Why am I here?”
“You’d be much happier at home with a husband and children,” McInnes flatly told her.
Clearly, Holder couldn’t believe what she was hearing and called his comments, “absolutely disgusting.”
These are the kinds of comments people, especially men, just don’t say out loud anymore – even if they believe it. Which might be why McInnes was provoking Holder in the first place.
According to McInnis’ Twitter account, he knew exactly what he was doing and frankly, it made great T.V.
