Fox News hosts make ‘boob’ joke during story about UAE female pilot

WASHINGTON – News that an Arab country sent a woman to lead airstrikes over Syria apparently struck a chauvinistic chord with not only Islamic militants, but two Fox News personalities as well.

On the cable network’s show “The Five,” co-host Greg Gutfeld quipped about pilot Maj. Mariam al-Mansouri’s ability to park her fighter jet. And co-host Eric Bolling wondered “Would you consider that boobs on the ground?”

Their fellow host Kimberly Guilfoyle had shared al-Mansouri’s story, calling it “remarkable and very exciting….I hope that hurt extra bad for you, because in some Arab countries women can’t even drive.”

Guilfoyle hung her head and told Gutfeld that he had ruined her moment.
