"Well where are the men in the future?" asked Loesch in response. "Because that sounds like a pretty boring future if it's just women."

"Good news for ladies night," joked co-host Brian Kilmeade.

"This is Kirsten Gillibrand, and I’m fascinated by the way, by her recent shift to the far left," Loesch continued. "She is trying to compete in a field with other Democrats who are, they’re very super progressive, very, very far left, very different from what the party used to be in the ‘90s."

"And she is trying to reinvent herself. And so she comes out with nonsense like this," she concluded. "This doesn’t even make any sense. It's silly. And you’re alienating half of America. And it's pretty sexist; it's a sexist tweet."

The commentary from Loesch came after Gillibrand tweeted her perspective to her 1.29 million followers on Tuesday night.

"Our future is: Female. Intersectional. Powered by our belief in one another. And we’re just getting started," she wrote in a post that has been retweeted more than 4,400 times but also generated more than 13,000 replies, many of which were negative.

"Our future is: AMERICAN," wrote Rubio. "An identity based not on gender,race,ethnicity or religion. But on the powerful truth that all people are created equal with a God given right to life,liberty & the pursuit of happiness."

"Good to know. My girls will be excited about this. When is it appropriate to let my boys (9, 7 and 6 years old) that there's no future for them?" asked Trump Jr. "Not sure this is a winning platform but you be you."
