The hosts of Fox News’ “Outnumbered” went off on Friday on the latest comments from Hillary Clinton, slamming her suggestion that she lost the election because of sexism.
During a speech on Thursday, Clinton spoke about her role in the 2016 presidential election, and complained that the deck was stacked against her as a woman and that she felt pressure to be silenced due to sexist impulses in her opponents.
“Outnumbered” co-host Melissa Francis wasn’t so sure that’s the way things actually turned out, and questioned the former Democratic candidate’s mental stability.
“How can she say people are being sexist against her when she’s being sexist against a giant group of women and she doesn’t even see it?” Francis asked. “I think she has actually lost her mind.”
Democratic contributor Jessica Tarlov tried to explain the context of Clinton’s comments and their basis in academic studies of voting demographics, but the rest of the panel was having none of it.
David Webb, a conservative radio host and a guest on the show, slammed Clinton’s “drivel” about women and politics and compared her apparent assumption that women should vote for Democrats to similar predetermined political obstacles for African-Americans, obstacles Webb says are bogus for anyone willing to think freely.
“We vote individually when we go into that booth, and now we are supposed to take a study that we vote collectively? This is garbage!” Webb exclaimed.
