The wife of new White House communications guru Bill Shine hosted a radio show in the late 2000s where she mocked victims of sexual harassment in the military and argued vaccines cause autism.
Darla Shine said of women sailors in one episode: ‘What do you think is going to happen when you go on a submarine for 12 months with 4,000 horny soldiers?’
The ‘Darla Shine Show’ was broadcast on the Talk Radio Network in 2008 and 2009.

Shine, in an August 2009 episode, declared herself a ‘sexist’ and said women serving with men in the military should expect to be sexually harassed, according to CNN, which listened to old episodes of her show.
‘And why on earth would you fight to go on the submarine ship for months on end? You know there was just a story with these girls, these women who are upset that they are sexually harassed in the military,’ Shine said. ‘What do you think is going to happen when you go on a submarine for 12 months with 4,000 horny soldiers?
‘I hate to say it, but it’s true. They should not even be allowed. The top military should say, ‘No way, you’re not allowed.’ But you know, the feminists have fought for these rights. It’s so stupid. I don’t know why anybody would want that.’
In other episodes she suggested a flu pandemic was a ‘setup’ by the government to help drug companies and helped spread a rumor the Federal Emergency Management Agency was planning on rounding up those afflicted with swine flu and putting them in camps.
She also called for the closing of all U.S. borders because of the swine flu.
That isn’t the only controversy behavioral getting attention since her husband was named President Donald Trump’s deputy chief of staff for communications last week.
Darla Shine is also under fire for her now-deleted social media accounts, which features posts that defended racist behavior and promoted conspiracy theories on vaccines, according to Mediate, which took screen shots.
‘When will Al Sharpton demand [that] young black boys do the right thing?’ she tweeted in response to the Black Lives Matter movement.
She even tied together race and vaccine conspiracy theories.
‘1 out of 10 black boys has autism!’ Shine tweeted in February 2016.
Bill Shine, newly hired as Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications, talks with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and counselor Kellyanne Conway after President Donald Trump announced Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court
She also claimed that the ‘biggest national security threat is autism!’
Studies have shown there is no link between receiving vaccines and developing autism, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Shine’s accounts were deleted after the White House officially announced Bill Shine was joining the administration.
Darla Shine worked in television like her husband, who was a former executive at Fox News, before she left to be a stay-at-home mom.
She wrote the book ‘Happy Housewives’ in 2005 and starting a blog called, ‘Darla Shine’s Happy Housewives Club,’ which featured recipes and household tips.
‘I am proof that housewives don’t lose their brain or their dreams after they give birth,’ she wrote on the about page of her blog. ‘The days of the housewife hag image are over.’
The Huffington Post also reported that Darla Shine has lashed out at women, including Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly, who have accused the late Fox News chairman Roger Ailes of sexual harassment.
Bill Shine was forced out as co-president at the cable news network last May for his handling of sexual harassment scandals there. He has never been accused of harassment himself and has denied all wrong doing.
Kelly took to her Twitter last week to blast Darla Shine after it emerged that she tweeted about the women who have accused Fox News execs of sexual assault.
Shine insinuated that Kelly wasn’t credible and claimed that the most harassment resulted at most to an ‘awkward hug.’
‘To Darla Shine – yes, it was indeed an ‘awkward hug’ between me (then a 2d year reporter) & my then-boss, the CEO Ailes,’ Kelly said on Twitter last Thursday, sharing a link to the Huffington Post article.
‘Especially when in his locked office he tried to make out w/me & then demanded to know when my contract was up after I shoved him off.’
Darla was said to have been fuming when her husband was fired, believing that he would be accused of sexual misconduct himself. Bill Shine hasn’t had any public allegations brought before him but he is named in several lawsuits as an enabler of the abuse.
‘What a joke this is,’ Darla wrote in a tweet, back in May. ‘Bill Shine built #FOXNEWS everyone currently there knows he was never accused of sexual harassment but too afraid to speak up. So glad my husband isn’t a liar. Karma gets everyone in the end.’
