Fox News co-host Meghan McCain slammed the feminist organizers behind the Women's March on Tuesday's airing of "Outnumbered," and refused to align her beliefs with the feminist movement — especially if they advocated for the defunding of the U.S. military.

McCain and her co-hosts discussed whether or not the March and its protesters were out of touch with most of America when McCain fired the kill shot:

"The problem with the modern Women’s March — feminist agenda or whatever is that it’s so wrapped up in the extreme left — not just on things like abortion but things apparently like defunding the military as well," McCain said.

Even though she "should" consider herself a feminist, McCain said she won't because her beliefs don't align with that of the leftist Women's March movement.

"A person like me," she continued, "even though I guess on paper I should consider myself a feminist, I won’t touch that. If that includes defunding the military, you know where you can go."

On Monday, about 80,000 leftist activists aligned with the Women's March signed a pledge demanding reparations for African-Americans, called for the defunding of the military and pushed a left-wing agenda that included open border immigration policies, in addition to staging sit-ins across the country.

Calling it the "Pledge of Liberation," the organization affiliated with the Women's March called for an end to "gender norms, expectations, stereotypes," and the for the legalization of abortion.

The Women's March recently partnered with the Indivisible movement — a progressive moment established as a result of President Donald Trump's electoral win to "resist" the president's agenda — as well as the ACLU to hold Monday's U.S. demonstrations.

The groups hosted sit-ins at congressional offices across the nation in partnership with other activist groups, including The Gathering for Justice and United We Dream.

In February, McCain blasted Democratic opposition to the appointment of Betsy DeVos to the secretary of education post.

About DeVos, McCain said, "The vitriol at her is shocking in a way that I cannot believe. And I don’t throw this around, I find it a little sexist."

The Women's March remarks begin around the 27:00 mark in the video below.
