San Francisco's Former First Lady Thinks Young Women Aren't Smart Enough for Juries

Scott Lucas | October 23, 2014 | Story Politics

During a typically deep discussion on Fox News show "The Five," Kimberly Guilfoyle, the former prosecutor and ex-wife of of ex-San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom, said she doesn't't think that young women should serve on juries, because "They don’t get it." She went on to say, “They’re not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortgage, kids, community, crime, education, health care. They’re like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world. I don’t think they shouldn’t be—I just think excuse them so they can go back on Tinder or”

Hmm, interesting case you're making there, Kimberly. Let's see, what could be wrong with this idea?

First of all—nobody under the age of 35 is on But also, how is it exactly that a woman who started working in the district attorney's office at 27 thinks young women should be nowhere near the legal system? Do you really think that young women are too distracted by slutting it up to serve as sober guardians of justice? Or, you know, are you projecting a little? We can't wait for next week, when you defend all-white juries.

Of course, none of this is that shocking. If Guilfoyle is saying it, it must be at least half insane. After all, she's long aspired for a career as an Ann Coulter without the Adam's apple. Since she joined Fox News in 2006, she's had a great run of trolling. Like last year when she said that President Obama was "the most destructive president we’ve had in terms of tearing apart this country." Or the time she thought the government's Cash for Clunkers program was designed to "seize all of your personal and private" information on your computer. Or—perhaps our favorite—the time she longed for Vladimir Putin to rule the United States as a dictator.

Pretty loathsome stuff. But hey, anything's better than this photo shoot, right?
