Comedy Central host says female leaders are at a disadvantage
“There's got to be some downside to having a woman president,” O'Reilly said on his Fox News program. “Something. Something that may not fit with that office.”
“Men are men. Women are women,” he went on to explain. “There's a difference, ok, theres a difference between the genders.”
Colbert agreed with his cable news hero. The gender gap can be seen in architecture of the White House, he argued on Wednesday's “The Colbert Report.”
“How is she going to press the nuclear launch button?” Colbert said. “Everything in the Oval Office is penis activated. It's been that way since the Kennedy administration.”
Plus, as O'Reilly pointed out many foreign leaders are inherently sexist.
“That's right, our president cannot be something that other countries disapprove of,” Colbert said. “We are the leader of the free world, so we need to vote for whatever Iran wants.”
