As for Carlson's question about women and science, plenty of people had answers for him, including Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.

"Democracy and civil rights is how we got a country where 'feminists do science'."
She also called out Carlson for using misogyny to discredit scientific facts about climate change.
People listed some of the women whose pioneering work advanced science.
They also disclosed that not only do "feminists do science," but they also do math.
People had questions for Carlson as well. Such as, what are his credentials, exactly?
