‘Does Congresswoman Change to Congress?’

Fox & Friends co-hosts are furious about a small part of the new rules the US House of Representatives passed on Monday: the use of gender-neutral language to promote diversity and inclusion.

But the morning crew at Fox News got it all wrong – including at the Chyron, which falsely advertised it as an attack on the American family. “Eliminate new house rules [sic] gender-specific family terms “, it says:

Co-host Ainsley Earhardt told her colleagues: “If it’s an ombudsman, change him to an ombudsman. Don’t add the ‘man’ ”she said which is wrong and also the wrong pronunciation of the actual base of the word.

“My question yesterday when we were on a break,” Earhardt said, actually fueling her ignorance. “I said,” Does that mean that “Congresswoman” has to switch to “Congress”? Is she now ‘Congress Pelosi’? “

Brian Kilmeade stepped in to agree.

“Yeah, you can’t get that – it’s gender specific, ‘Congressman’.”

Steve Doocey corrected them both.

“Member of Congress,” he informed her in a two-word reprimand.

Outraged, Kilmeade misled Fox News viewers by suggesting that adopting new rules is not something every new Congress does. He insisted that Congress should instead focus on slowly rolling out coronavirus vaccines and getting new vaccines approved – both of which are outside of Congress’s purview. However, adopting new rules is something that any new Congress does, just as it votes to elect the President of the House.

“Where does this stuff come from and how could this be the first thing on your agenda?” Kilmeade, apoplectic and almost screaming, complained.

He also falsely claimed that the new rules were part of an “agenda” that exploded when the move was added to a broader tone.

“Who’s the agenda is that?” Kilmeade wanted to know.


Ainsley Earhardt believes that the House’s rules on gender-neutral terms mean that “Congressman” must be changed to “Congress”. Is she now the Pelosi Congress? “Steve Doocy tells her” Congressman “is already a word. Pic.twitter.com/7BBoQv6cEr
