Fox News’ Latest Sexist Attack Against Hillary: ‘Face Lift, Perhaps?’


By Aviva Shen on Feb 6, 2013 at 9:05 am

Fox and Friends host Steve Doocy took a shot at outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday morning, speculating that she underwent a face lift in the last two weeks. In a quick headline roundup, Doocy quipped that Clinton’s new website featured her “glamorous new face,” while Fox showed a side-by-side comparison of her website photo and a photo from Clinton’s exasperated testimony at the Senate’s hearing on the Benghazi attacks.

Is this the face of presidential ambition? Days after retiring as Secretary of State, somebody has launched a website for her, showing off this glamorous new face. Face lift, perhaps? Well, that’s fueling rumors about a run for president in 2016, but her aides say it’s simply a way for fans and the media to reach her.


Watch it:



An hour earlier, Doocy’s co-host Gretchen Carlson read the same headline round up, but instead noted the website showed off Clinton’s “glamorous new look.” Doocy’s joke is just the latest sexist dig aimed at Clinton. After the Benghazi hearing, the New York Post — a tabloid owned, like Fox News, by conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch — published an offensive cover featuring Clinton’s angry testimony alongside the joke, “No Wonder Bill’s Afraid!”

1. It's called photo retouching and makeup and lighting to make her look good.

Just like any and every magazine cover. They are ridiculous.

3. It's the same face.

One with make-up and no glasses, the other with no eye make-up and glasses. I don't see that much of a difference.

4. I don't see anything wrong with face lifts and men get them too

whether or not Hillary had one is about 9,094,265,440,215th on the list of important things.

fox can go fux themselves.

5. Who gives a river rat's patoot if she did

If HRC had a cosmetic procedure done, it's good work. But why is this (allegedly) political show discussing it?

11. When would she have had the time to get one?

The pic on her website is older than the one at the Benghazi hearing.

Fox knows this already, but likes to stir the pot.

16. Knowing the Fox News cretins

They would probably say that she had the procedure done while she was *allegedly* in the hospital being treated for the blood clot. Then she took some super magickal drugs (only available to female Democratic politicians) to speed up the healing process.

Or something like that. Logic is not in play there.

18. Yeah, because a doctor would agree to do non-essential surgery

on a patient who is taking blood thinners.

The craziness at FOX never ceases.

If she did, it was a good job.

Unlike some others I've seen...

7. It really shows their desperation.

I laugh at what they will stoop to.

They can't criticize the woman on her merits as Secretary of State. The job she's done has been impeccable. She's reverered and loved by most Americans.

So they stoop to this...

Consider the source

25. The thing is....she's likely to run....so this is the beginning of their efforts to

denigrate her in the eyes of their moronic base of viewers.

12. Tasteless

Wonder how co-worker Greta Van Susteren feels about his comments. She had plastic surgery before starting her gig at Fox, and there was even speculation that Fox played a part in her decision since they wanted their newscasters looking glamorous (well, the women anyway; the guys could still look like crap.)

I wouldn't mind seeing Greta punch him out.

14. So she got one of those face lifts that doesn't leave bruises and swelling for weeks?

She must have gotten it at home between trips to say her goodbyes and testifying in Congress because the press have pretty much followed her everywhere and they never mentioned any visits to doctors or clinics or hospitals.

But of course that must be a conspiracy, just like Obama's real birthplace.

23. Not only that,

rumors were flying the surgery was 'strongly encouraged' by Fox News since she wasn't glam enough for their stable of blonds.

17. Looks as if she has had a mild makeover with a new hair do, make up and glasses

And it worked - she looks great.

Fox snoots need to get a life.

20. Actually, she didn't.

The photo predates the Benghazi testimony. It's from a photo shoot done by Conde Nast's Traveler magazine for their September issue. She's on the cover and is wearing the same outfit. Their team tagged along on one of her trips.

This is one of the photos taken by their photographer. The photos were shot in India.

21. Point is she looks good and no evidence of a face lift.

Just that the day of her Benghazi testimony she looked great, the combination of hair style, make up and the glasses were flattering.

22. I was referring to FOX's insinuation that she's had a face lift recently.

It makes no sense when the pic on her website is older than the one from the Benghazi hearing. Of course, their reporting is usually not based on reality.

27. The surgical realities of a facelift

I'm sure Hillary will get a makeover and some work done if she decides to run in 2016, but there's no way she's had time to get a facelift in between the time of her recent Senate committee appearance and her new website photo.

A facelift requires surgical incisions - do the folks at FOX even realize this? It then takes at least several weeks for those incisions to heal and for the marks to go away.
