Millennial To Fox’s Gasparino: I Look Forward To ‘Writing Your Obituary’ (VIDEO)

The one-man war on Millennials waged by Fox News Business correspondent Charlie Gasparino came to a head on Wednesday after a National Review writer said to his face that he was not a nice man and that she looked forward to his death.

The writer, Jillian Melchior, had a piece last week in the New York Post that attacked Gasparino’s Boomer crusade. In turn, Gasparino identified her as one of the “moochers” and “fucking morons” that make up the Millennials class “destroying the country.”

On Wednesday, during the Fox Business show “Cavuto Coast To Coast,” after a cursory debate about which generation is truly to blame for America’s economic woes (both are on the conservative side), Melchior declared she was through with Gasparino’s “patronizing” attitude.

“I don’t think you’re a nice man and I’m very much looking forward to writing your obituary,” she told him.

β€œI take pride in not being a nice guy,” Gasparino said. “I’m a jerk β€” read my Playboy interview!”

“I don’t want to. Nobody reads that,” Melchior said.

“Right because they can just get it online β€” Millennials just get porn online,” Gasparino said.

The Fox reporter later tweeted one last burn at Melchior, paraphrasing a quote that he often gets wrong.

“I changed my mind @JillianKayM is a very nice young lady,” he wrote, “tho i still doubt she can wear my jock strap as a reporter.”

As Shubhankar Chhokra at the National Review pointed out, Gasparino is botching a quote by boxer Larry Holmes, who once said his opponent couldn’t “carry” his jock strap. The idea that someone would wish to “wear” Gasparino’s jock strap is Gasparino’s alone.
