SANDRA SMITH (CO-HOST): Tomi, what the president said there, we kind of get to a place where you can see -- it will only be women who are nominated for a post and promoted to CEO at this point because anybody else it seems like could be vulnerable. At the same time you hear from executives who say, "I don't want to hire women anymore because it's too dangerous for me." There are so many externalities to this.
TOMI LAHREN (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): It puts women in a bad position, it really does, because it means that we're getting a position not because of our merit but because we are the safe option, or it means we're not getting a position because the males that were around feel that it's too dangerous, they're afraid of lawsuits, they're afraid of allegations. So it puts women in a difficult position. And furthermore, I live in Los Angeles, that's kind of the birthplace of this whole #MeToo movement. It started out in what I believe is a great thing which was bringing women out that had actually been assaulted and were coming out and saying this happened to me, we've been quiet for too long and then it turned ugly, then it turned to this. It turned into, oh I can make some politically convenient allegations, I can ruin someone's life, I can ruin someone's family and we can do it all in the name of the #MeToo movement, but really, it's Democrat-driven, it's Hollywood-driven and I think the American people are really sick and tired of it.
