News Anchor Makes Cringe-Worthy On-Air Comments About Reporter's Body (VIDEO)

We get it, Greg Kelly, you're really fond of Fox News reporter Anna Gilligan's body. She's definitely a pretty girl. And you're a red-blooded heterosexual American man. So we know why you'd be attracted to her. But did you have to ogle her in front of the nation? Gross!

The Fox News anchorman, who co-hosts Good Day New York with take-no-nonsense anchorwoman Rosanna Scotto, pulled a Ron Burgundy recently when he couldn't stop talking about his colleague's physique in a feature shot at a popular theme park. Watch this video and remind yourself that this is 2014, not 1974.

Gilligan, who looks young enough to be Kelly's daughter, appears slightly uncomfortable as she agrees to don a bikini and try out an exciting new ride called the Tarzan Rope Swing at New Jersey's Action Park that requires her to swing from a rope and throw herself into a pool.

The things people do for their jobs.

If that isn't bad enough, she then had to deal with Kelly's awkward comments about her two-piece and her body. The second she emerged from the water, instead of asking about the ride, Kelly said: "First of all, nice bathing suit." Ick.

When she tried to gracefully end the segment and, in her words, go put on some clothing, the anchorman kept asking her questions to keep her on air so he could chat her up.

Oh, boys will be boys!

Poor Scotto -- who tells Kelly to "stay appropriate" -- is probably thinking the same thing as most women in America: for the love of God, dude, think with your big head, please, this is your place of business.

Granted, Gilligan agreed to do this on TV, so you could argue she opened herself up to men making comments. But I'm imagining she didn't think she'd have to deal with those comments at work. On air. By a colleage who is supposed to respect her.

Watch the segment and let us know what you think:

Do you think Kelly crossed a line here or did Gilligan invite this type of response by wearing a bikini on TV?
