Fox News host Katie Pavlich announced that if women want to be treated equally as men, then they have to be willing to endure degrading sexual comments from President Donald Trump.
Pavlich was referring to Trump’s tweet about Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York on Dec. 12 that included a veiled oral sex insult:
Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!

Instead of calling for the president to change his vile ways, Pavlich told women to take the verbal abuse because Trump uses abusive language towards men:
She called for Sen. Franken (D-MN) to step aside, not because she cares about his behavior but because if she does that, there’s an equation that goes on that means that the president, of course, has to step aside.
Did the president have to respond with a tweet to that? No. Was it a little bit crass? Yes. Did it have language he has used against men? Yes.
And feminists have to make a choice. They either want to be treated like men as they claim, and then when they are treated like men not complain. Or they need to say that they wanted to be treated differently. You can’t have it both ways.
Feminists have this idea that they want to be in the playing field and equal to men. However, when they are treated with the same language or the same aspects of a situation, they then come back and cry sexism.
[Gillibrand] can’t have it both ways because then they’re going to treat you differently. So, if you want to be treated equally, you have to be treated equally on all levels. And if you are going to call for the president to resign, he’s probably going to respond to you with some kind of message as he has responded to everybody else.
