Not content making an idiot out of himself just once this week, Tucker Carlson has doubled down on being an offensive asshole by ludicrously asserting that women actually get paid more than men “if you adjust for the amount of uninterrupted time people spend in the workplace.”
Yes, Tucker actually went there.
During a discussion about gender inequality in the workplace on Fox News, one of the female co-hosts stated that according to recent study, female journalists make 82 cents for every $1 that male journalists make, adding that 63% of journalists are men. Infuriated, Carlson went deep into his well of nonsensical bullshit and pulled out a series of cringeworthy ‘facts’ that bear no resemblance to reality whatsoever.
“That’s just silly,” Carlson replied. “If you adjust for the amount of uninterrupted time people spend in the workplace, women make more than men in almost every category.”
“Go try and hire a male journalist,” he added. “You can’t find any!”
Given that out of the 28 people on the Daily Caller‘s editorial staff, 21 are male (or 75%), this can only be attributed to Carlson being either a) a liar, or b) an asshole, or c) all of the above
“This idea that women are suffering, that’s just ridiculous!” he said. “Men are suffering!”
Right, because higher salaries, not giving birth to children, and not having to put up with misogynistic dick heads like Tucker Carlson in the workplace makes life incredibly difficult….
