Kathie Lee Gifford is standing up for the “good men” amid the #MeToo movement.
The Today show host recently spoke with SiriusXM’s Michelle Collins for an episode of The Michelle Collins Show and discussed a culture of “male-bashing” that she believes is taking place in society
“Any good, decent, wonderful man’s welcome to be along for the ride, because I hate the male-bashing that’s going on in the world today,” said Gifford, 64. “There are a lot of wonderful men.”
“I hate this whole thing of, ‘I’m not going to be happy until there’s not a good man left standing.’ I hate that,” she continued.
When Collins said that she doesn’t “think anyone feels that way,” Gifford insisted, “I do.”
“Oh gosh, I sense it. I hate it, because there are a lot of great men, great men. And let’s celebrate them, let’s be grateful for them,” she continued.
“My daddy was one, my husband was one, my son is one,” said Gifford, who referenced her late father, her late husband Frank Gifford — he passed away in August 2015 — and her 27-year-old son, Cody Gifford. “And I hope to maybe someday meet another one,” said Gifford, who quipped, “As long as he’s got his own teeth.”
“Be a great human being! It’s not gender-specific. Be a great human being. And don’t use sex in an evil way,” she said, noting that “God intended it to be … beautiful.”
