Watch Gretchen Carlson Offer Steve Doocy Some ‘Potent Turkish Viagra’ So He Can ‘Blank Many Times’

Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 6.25.40 PMFormer Fox News host Gretchen Carlson is now embroiled in what has to be the biggest sexual harassment imbroglio ever to hit cable news. Carlson is suing Fox News President and CEO Roger Ailes for sexual harassment and retribution (charges Ailes denies), and has also accused her former Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy of sexist and demeaning behavior, but that didn’t stop her from thinking of him while she was shopping for souvenirs in Turkey. In 2007, Carlson offered Doocy and Brian Kilmeade something that “may be small, but it’s potent” (I’m sure they get that a lot), and gifted them with some “Turkish Viagra,” all to the sensitive strains of 70s porno guitar music:

If you take this, you can “blank” many times! In the form of honey. It’s legal, you don’t need a prescription, you don’t need to go to a doctor, all you do is take a few sips at night, and you’re a man!

Someone has leaked handwritten notes from Carlson to Ailes in order to suggest a friendlier relationship, and other female talent at the network have stepped up to defend Ailes, but Carlson’s suit has also spurred similar accusations from others.
