Rush Limbaugh defended his selection as one of the judges at the Miss America Pageant by saying he has always been a strong supporter of women. It's just feminism he disapproves of because it has "led women astray."

I'm a huge supporter of women. What I'm not is a supporter of liberalism. Feminism is what I oppose. Feminism has led women astray. I love the women's movement especially when I'm walking behind it.

Interviewer Gretchen Carlson, a co-host of "Fox & Friends" and a beauty queen herself, just looked on with a frozen smile on her face.
