SANDRA SMITH (CO-HOST): Alright, so to Katherine's point, Andrea, she's saying as long as there is a physical endurance test, and that woman passes it, she should be fair game for a combat unit.
ANDREA TANTAROS (CO-HOST): No, I don't think so. And I don't know, never been a Navy SEAL but I am going to trust the Navy seals on this one. It's not justice physical combat and it's not just mental. It's what these men have to go through and what they think about when they are serving with women. Their mind needs to be on killing the enemy alone, and from the SEALs that I have talked to, when there is a woman in the unit, it is not. And so I'm going to take their word for it and trust them. But you know what really ticked me off, is the day after 14 Americans were gunned down, Ash Carter was trotted out to make some announcement about women in combat. Why?
CHRIS PLANTE: A PC feminist announcement.
TANTAROS: I find that so ridiculous. Fourteen Americans are gunned down, and they roll him out to make some very PC announcement about women. I'm all for equality, but that to me was just bizarre.
