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,

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

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."
