After Fox News host Tucker Carlson disparaged efforts to support women in the military as “a mockery of the U.S. military,” Twitter users responded by sharing the spectacular achievements of female service people that Carlson has yet to live up to.

Carlson’s segment came in response to President Joe Biden saying he was working on improving the military experience for women,

'Remember in 2003 when Tucker's A-10 took a massive amount of anti-aircraft damage and still completed the mission and returned to base? Oh wait, that was Kim Campbell.' the side of an aircraft full of bullet holes

Started by Twitter user @simkins_jd, most of the tweets follow a similar format. It starts by attributing an act of bravery, skill, or self-sacrifice to Carlson. Then the tweeter self-corrects, naming the relevant woman who actually did it instead.

'I'll never forget the day in 2005 when @TuckerCarlson took control of a firefight near Baghdad, directing his team's MK19s toward the ambush before dismounting and killing 3 enemies at close range with his M4 Oh wait, that was 23 y/o Silver Star recipient Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester' picture of Ticker Carlson next to Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester in uniform, surrounded by other soldiers
I remember when @TuckerCarlson was sweeping an area in Iraq on November 12, 2004, when his the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter was shot down by a rocket-propelled grenade causing him to lose both his legs. Oh wait, that was @SenDuckworth
'Remember on 9/11 when Tucker Carlson took off and was prepared to fly into flight 93 in order to take it down when there were no missiles loaded on their fighter jet? Oh wait that was Heather Penney.' a smiling blonde woman in an airforce uniform
And Tammie Jo Shults, one of the first female fighter pilots in the Navy. After retiring, she became a pilot for Southwest and safely landed a plane with only one engine in 2018.

This wasn’t the only dragging the Fox host caught as a result of his actions. Even the Pentagon pointed out that he hadn’t served a day in his life.

“What we absolutely won’t do is take personnel advice from a talk show host or the Chinese military,” Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said.

There was also lot of speculation (much of it by past and current servicemembers) on Carlson’s capacity to do any of the things female service personnel do all the time.

Or curiosity if he could even make it past boot camp.

If Tucker is worried about the feminization of the military, I’d be happy to introduce him to a local recruiter so he can show us all how to do it man-style. I suspect his heroic career in the military would end sometime around 0300 on his first morning in boot camp.

Every woman in the military I’ve ever met could absolutely kick Tucker Carlson’s ass.

Tucker Carlson's opinion on pregnant military women based on 'zero days' of service, says Space Command official. Reminds us that 'the opinions 'were made by an individual who has never served a day in his life.'
