Kilmeade’s “Naked” Misogyny?

September 14, 2015

Sarcastic Brian: “What a shame!” For the “painted [topless] ladies” who feel less safe in Times Square (re a recent attack on the street performers), Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade seems to think that they are asking for it. It was not Kilmeade’s finest hour this morning: And, he should apologize to the topless-body-paint gals who are trying to make a living lawfully–and to all the other women who value their equal rights.

Sounding like a troglodyte, usually au courant Brian opined in a jarringly offensive fashion re women who believe in exercising their legally recognized equal rights by “baring their breasts as men are routinely permitted to do” (according to a 1992 New York Court of Appeals Court decision, People v. Ramona Santorelli and Mary Lou Schloss). Introducing an upcoming story, his co-host Steve Doocy declared, “The painted ladies of Times Square are seeing red, why they say [that] they feel less safe when they are naked in Times Square.” Unsympathetically and chauvinistically, at best, Brian sarcastically responded, “What a shame!”

“What a shame indeed!,” Brian! The apparently practical endorsement of the reported attack on Amanda Roman, a “desnuda” of Times Square, was unseemly and unwarranted. In the author’s opinion, you should apologize to her and to all of the “painted ladies” who are simply exercising their equal rights to earn a living a la the “Naked Cowboy” in Times Square. After all, it is 2015!

[Author’s aside: Perhaps, Kelly File host Megyn Kelly will grill her colleague F&F co-host Brian Kilmeade in his next regular segment with him as she did “The Donald”–or, maybe, not.]

Kill Kung Fu Confab

August 12, 2008

Veteran actor David Carradine was not amused with his Fox & Friends interview promoting his new movie “Kung Fu.” In an uncomfortable confab, the Kill Bill star corrected an unappreciative Brian on his pronunciation of the main character in the intro: then he didn’t quite get Brian’s first question. Brian oliquely asked, “Why is this too taxing?” With his head cocked, Carradine responded, “What?”

After Brian tried to explain ineffectively, Steve Doocy elaborated that the prepared materials indicated that the shoot was a tough one. From that point it was polite as Carradine tried to explain the SPIKE TV movie and Gretchen Carlson, Steve, and Brian tried to engage, laugh, and just make the colloquy work with limited success.

At the end of the interview as Steve was wrapping up, Carradine tried to hype the promo more by saying, “And Daryl Hannah: you got to talk about Daryl Hannah.” Steve then replied, “She did some stuff, too, on Spike TV” and tried to end the segment. A surly Carradine said, “That’s all Daryl gets?”

Remind anyone of the Brian’s KISS interview?
