Young women 'should be excused from politics so they can enjoy Tinder and Match.com', says Fox News' Kimberly Guilfoyle

Young women shouldn’t worry themselves with the challenging world of politics when there are online dating websites to enjoy, says Fox News presenter Kimberly Guilfoyle.

US television show The Five co-host said that young women shouldn’t be able to vote or sit on juries because they don’t have the same concerns as their elders, seemingly implying that they’re not qualified to have any influence on the way the country is run.

Instead, they should be busying themselves on Match.com and Tinder.

“[It’s] the same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea… they don’t get it,” said Guilfoyle on The Five. “They’re not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortgage, kids, community, crime, education, healthcare… They’re hot, healthy and running around without a care in the world.”

Fellow co-host Bob Beckel interjects that the younger female populace should indeed be allowed to do adult pursuits such as sit on juries: “They have every right in the world…”

At which point Guilfoyle clarifies her view and makes it, in fact, worse.

“I didn't say they shouldn't be,” said Guilfoyle. “I just think, excuse them so they can go back on Tinder and Match.com.”

Greg Gutfield said earlier on in the show that “with age comes wisdom”, which is why so many apparently silly, idealist young people are Democrats and so many older people are allegedly sage and judicious Republicans.

“It's a known fact that the older that you get the more conservative you get, and I always tell young people, 'You don't have to wait to become a conservative. Don't waste your time,’” said Gutfield.

“But the point is. a lot of women have also caught on to the big joke, which it seems to be even more sexist to assume that women cannot take care of themselves because they're women and therefore need the government to take care of them.”
