Rush Limbaugh turns off Fox News because female hosts are ‘distracting’


The conservative nationally syndicated radio show host Rush Limbaugh revealed why he sometimes turns off FOX News: The female hosts who work for the network can be too “distracting.”

On his radio show Tuesday, Limbaugh noted some of the women of FOX News distract viewers from the news saying:

“I’m going to have to turn off these TVs in here. There’s another woman up here, I can tell you just had plastic surgery. It’s depressing and distracting.”

The radio host didn’t say exactly “who just had plastic surgery,” but said it was either plastic surgery or “an excessive amount of makeup” that rendered the woman’s appearance so distracting.

“It doesn’t matter who it is. I’m not gonna tell you what’s wrong with it, it could just be an excessive amount of makeup but I don’t think so. It’s just a distraction.”

When talking about FOX’s show Outnumbered, he said:

“On the Fox [‘Outnumbered’] show it’s nothing but eight pairs of legs that you see. Why tune into a program when all you see if eight pairs of legs with the skirts halfway up the thigh? What do they expect us to do here?”

What do you think? Do you think the women on FOX should dress and look a little more conservative?

    Actually, I think that is Rush’s problem… not to be put in that box myself.

    I remember my Dad who has now passed, would say “If you have to listen to bad things happening in this crazy world. you can soften the bad with beautiful women ” . That was my Dad’s opinion. It doesn’t bother me. I would rather see a pretty face than a Rachel Maddow face.
