Fox Host To Lady Lawyers: Shake Your Assets, Baby!

Following Roger Ailes' lead, Brian Kilmeade advises female lawyers everywhere to strut their stuff to get their way in court.

Roger Ailes has indoctrinated his hosts well. Drum up phony outrage, say crazy things and call it free speech, and above all, make sure there are female legs in as many shots as possible.

Sex sells, and Brian Kilmeade wants lady lawyers everywhere to shake their assets a little to get what they want.

Backstory, courtesy of Media Matters:

In a March 25 blog post, U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf called himself a "dirty old man" while offering three rules for young women lawyers to follow when considering how to dress for court. In the post, he comments on the "ample chest" of one such lawyer and advises others to "tone it down" so that law clerks won't label you "an ignorant slut":

Judge Kopf then went on to list his three rules:

1. You can't win. Men are both pigs and prudes. Get over it.

2. It is not about you. That goes double when you are appearing in front of a jury.

3. Think about the female law clerks. If they are likely to label you, like Jane Curtin, an ignorant slut behind your back, tone it down.

The first point aggravates me more than the last one does, but that's the one that everyone got in a twist over. And no one got in a bigger twist than Brian Kilmeade.

KILMEADE: If you could try a case, and you have an asset which is a great body and a great figure, you've got to do everything you can to be successful. So if it means somebody in the jury is going to be swung to your side because of the fact that you work out ... then go ahead and do it.

Yeah, forget about trying your case on facts. Just wear the low cut blouse and the short skirt, shake your booty in the general direction of the jury, and let them rise to the occasion.

The judge is right about one thing. Some men are pigs, like the judge who wrote that and the Fox host who reacted to it, and who has said other sexist things in the past.

Would you like a smack upside the head with your objectification, Brian?
