Former Deputy White House Press Secretary Hogan Gidley was mocked on Twitter after he went on Fox News and said that President Donald Trump is the "most masculine" president that the country had ever seen. 

In an interview with Fox News' Bill Hemmer when the host asked Gidley, "With the social media crackdown, does he feel emasculated? Especially as he heads out of office," Gidley responded, saying, "Look, I wouldn’t say emasculated. I mean, the most masculine person ever, I think, to hold the White House is the President of the United States!"



 

The interview took place after widespread social media clamps were put on Trump in wake of his supporters violently storming the Capitol building last week. After a clip of Gidley's comments went viral on social media, users were quick to point out the bizarreness of his comments. 

"@hogangidley45 says what?" one of them said, while another wrote, "Masculine president?" A third commented, "Sure. Nothing says 'manly' like makeup, hair spray, hair dye, and (speculating based on visual cues) possibly a girdle and shoe lifts. Oh, and the constant whining and complaining. Can't forget that. Other than those things, he's a true specimen of manliness." One more quipped, "Teddy Roosevelt was shot in the chest and then gave an 84-minute speech but... go off dude."

The next remarked, "I think he misunderstands 'masculine' to mean dumb, brutish, and unreasonable." One more said, "What a joke. Zachary Taylor would pick his teeth with Donald draft dodger trump." Another commented, "Masculine? The old fat guy wearing makeup, a girdle, shoe lifts, face-lift tape, with a ginger cotton-candy ferret on his head? Yeah.....rrrrright." One more wrote, "This is the most delusional thing they believe by far." A commenter tweeted, "All this tough-talk and flexing while Trumps never been in a fight in his life  #Spursy" One more said, "I can only imagine the dirt that Trump found in gidleys closet."



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 

In the same interview, Gidley ripped into the House Democrats for bringing impeachment articles against Trump, which he claimed was simply an effort to silence the president as he returns to private life at the end of his presidency. "Democrats came after him with a purely political impeachment not too long ago," Gidley told host Bill Hemmer. "Now they're threatening to do it again. So we're clear of the timeline -- the president and I talked about this -- they attacked him before he even got in office. Now they're promising to attack him after he leaves office? It clearly an effort to silence not just this president, but to come after us as American citizens as well."

Gidley further rejected claims by House Democrats that the president "gravely endangered the security of the United States ... and the democratic system." "If you don't agree with them that he should be impeached, again, then you DO agree with the lawless thugs that attacked our Capitol building ..." he summarized Democrats' argument. "This conflation is so disingenuous on its face. [It's] absolutely a disgusting political tactic. It is dangerous for the future of our American democracy. We know what the Democrats want you to do. You have to agree with them on everything in every way or for some reason you don't deserve to be in this country."
