Maj. Mariam Al Mansouri flew through the glass ceiling when she became the first female pilot in the United Arab Emirates' Air Force. On Monday night, she was reportedly a team leader in the airstrikes against ISIS in Syria. But a segment celebrating her feat on Fox News Channel's "The Five" quickly devolved into sexist jokes.
"Hey ISIS, you were bombed by a woman," co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle said, starting the segment off on a positive note. "Oh yeah, hell came down on ISIS in Syria because -- guess what -- the first female pilot, piloting for the UAE, leading the strikes. Dropped the bombs on ISIS on Monday night."

"I'll take a woman doing this any day to them," Guilfoyle added. "I hope that hurt extra bad because in some Arab countries, women can't even drive."
"After she bombed it, she couldn’t park it," Greg Gutfeld quickly cracked.
"Would that be considered boobs on the ground or no?" Eric Bolling asked.
While the two men laughed, Guilfoyle put her head into her hand and said, "Why did they ruin my thing?"
