Fox News Mocks Manning With ‘Dude (Looks Like A Lady)’ Song (VIDEO)

“Fox & Friends” on Tuesday made light of Chelsea Manning’s intention to live as a woman, playing a transgender-themed rock song over a pair of photos of the convicted soldier who went by the name Bradley Manning prior to her sentencing.

Before cutting to a commercial break, host Gretchen Carlson previewed a segment on Manning. As Carlson spoke, the Aerosmith classic “Dude (Looks Like A Lady)” could be heard playing as the camera panned on a screen with two photos of Manning.

After being sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking classified information to WikiLeaks, Manning’s attorney announced that his client wants to live as a woman and go by the name of Chelsea. Manning said she is willing to pay for estrogen treatments while serving time in an all-male prison.
