Tucker Carlson of Fox News took to the air to mock outgoing Representative Adam Kinzinger of Illinois.
Carlson poked fun at Kinzinger's "life after a hormonal balance," adding "what can a man be when he stops trying to be a an?"
CARLSON: because it’s Friday and we’re in a sentimental mood, we’d like to take a moment to say goodbye to one of our all-time favorite members of Congress, Mr. Adam Kinzinger of Kankakee, Illinois, ladies and gentlemen.
Carlson Mocks Outgoing Rep
Partial transcript follows:
Kinzinger was first elected to the House 12 years ago, and for the bulk of his time in office, he served utterly without distinction, in virtual anonymity. A few of his constituents had heard of him, but none expressed interest in learning more.
Then in 2018 came the transformation. That was the year that Adam Kinzinger turned 40, and things began to change inside of him.
The first signs were subtle but unmistakable: Choking up at a car insurance commercial, opening an Instagram account, and posting pictures of himself, wearing Spandex bike shorts to Starbucks without shame and sometimes, with a fanny pack.
By 2021, Kinzinger had a full-blown case of male menopause with all the familiar, painful symptoms: Mood swings, hot flashes, food cravings, uncontrollable weeping.
A lesser man would have retreated from public life, chosen new pronouns and transitioned in private, but Adam Kinzinger chose another path. He chose to be a role model.
He wanted other middle-aged men to know there is life after a hormonal imbalance, and so on July 27, 2021, Adam Kinzinger bravely came out of the closet as a weepy man. You may remember the moment.
