In recent years, a number of women who have bravely served their country have been elected to the House and Senate. Martha McSally, who served in Arizona, served 22 years in the Air Force. Mikie Sherrill, recently elected to the House of Representatives, served 9 years in the Navy.
And Tammy Duckworth, an Illinois senator, lost both legs while flying a helicopter in Iraq.
Tucker Carlson beat up all of these women during his Wednesday night show. The Fox presenter told the audience. “Pregnant women will wage our wars. It’s a mockery of the US military. As China’s military becomes more masculine as it gathers together the largest navy in the world, as Joe Biden says, our military must become more feminine, whatever feminine means, as men and women no longer exist. Again, this is a mockery of the US military and its core mission of winning wars. “
Duckworth responded to this segment via Twitter on Thursday evening. She wrote, “Fuck Tucker Carlson. As he practiced his two steps, America’s female warriors hunted down al-Qaeda and demonstrated the strength of American women. We wish everyone but Tucker a happy belated International Women’s Day that even I can dance better than. ”
The Illinois Senator posted a second tweet that read “and we all know that it was his partner who did all the hard work. “
