Leading a panel of what the host described as “bitter boomers” on Thursday on Fox Business Channel, reporter Charlie Gasparino called a trio of young female journalists “fucking morons” for defending their generation from his view that millennials are entitled and lazy.
Earlier, host Neil Cavuto assembled a panel of young journalists, all of whom were female, who dismissed Gasparino as an old crank and defended their generation as hardworking and capable.
Cavuto showed the footage to Gasparino backstage in the Fox offices and videotaped his reaction.
“These kids are such fucking morons,” Gasparino said to laughter in the green room. “They’re stupider than we thought!”
Back in the studio, the rest of the segment was dedicated to letting Gasparino, several other older men, and one woman pile on millennials as parasitic and clueless brats.
Cavuto tried to defend one of the women, saying, “she is beautiful — and smart.”
“She couldn’t wear my jockstrap as a reporter,” Gasparino replied.
“Who would want to?” asked Fox Business reporter Elizabeth MacDonald, to laughter.
“She’s a female,” Cavuto added.
