In a rare move, the Pentagon is calling out a television host. Tucker Carlson of Fox News aired a segment this week mocking women in the armed forces. He also made fun of President Biden for noting the military has taken steps like making maternity flight suits and updated hair style rules for women and called it a mockery of the U.S. military.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby joined Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin in expressing “revulsion” at Carlson’s comments. Other senior military leaders also went online to take Carlson to task, with Sergeant Major of the Army Michael Grinston tweeting that his comments don’t reflect the military’s values.
