Yes, the host is sexist because she is judging a candidate on her looks. There is no reason to think the president needs to look a certain way. Would this commentator have said that about a man? Probably not. Only female candidates are told to always look beautiful on camera.
I believe the host is a sexist simply because of the way put out his point. Hillary Clinton having been at the debate has got nothing to do with her appearance. Therefore it was not right for him to talk about that. The statement has gone viral and everyone is talking about it. One has to focus on the main agenda if you ask me.
The fact of whether or not Hillary Clinton was attractive during the debate is completely irrelevant. What matters is how Hillary performed. Did she keep her composure? Did she stay confident and clearly portray her visions as President? Did she tell the truth and get her points across without name-calling and lying? Those are the things that really matter, and she did all of those with great poise.
Hillary Clinton is a 68 year old woman who came to the debate wearing a red version of the outfit worn by Violet Beauregarde from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It is not a far stretch to comment that she was not looking particularly attractive in her fire-engine red suit. Saying or having an opinion on another person's appearance doesn't necessarily mean that the comment is sexist if the person is of another gender. Additionally, this type of auto-attack name-calling that labels people as racist, sexist, bigoted, etc, is detrimental to collective societal growth because it creates a world where words speak louder than actions.
The comment he made was very rude and un called for but it wasn't because she is a woman. 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
