'She Must Be Goldilocks': The Five Reacts to Cynthia Nixon Team Claiming Sexism Over Cold Debate Room
New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon's campaign team claimed it's sexist for incumbent opponent Andrew Cuomo to demand the two debate in a colder room when they meet on Long Island on Wednesday.
"The Five" reacted Tuesday to the Nixon camp's claim, ahead of the WCBS debate at Hofstra University.
The news station, according to The New York Times, received an email from Nixon's team last week requesting that the station keep the debate room's temperature at 76 degrees, Fox News reported.
Rebecca Katz, a strategist for Nixon, reportedly told the local CBS station that working conditions are "notoriously sexist when it comes to room temperature, so we just want to make sure we’re all on the same page here."
"Obviously Cynthia Nixon is Goldilocks," Tammy Bruce said.
Greg Gutfeld said that, if the auditorium is set to 76 degrees as Nixon desires, the crowd "is going to despise her" because the additional body heat from the crowd will likely raise the room temperature into the 80s.
The winner of Nixon and Cuomo's primary will face Republican Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro in the November general election.
The panel also discussed how former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, now a Democratic congressman, similarly required a hidden fan be placed under his lectern at debates and speeches.
