Fox News’ Brit Hume says Hillary Clinton was "not necessarily attractive’ during the debate." Is the host a sexist?

  • Attractiveness has nothing to do with her performance

    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.

  • Yes, the host is sexist.

    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.

  • Yes, the host is a sexist.

    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.

  • He has his opinion .

    As with people on this website; the host has his own opinions. People crack jokes about the way Trump looks; does that make all the women who find him repulsive sexist? Everyone is entitled to their own opinions.... Or at least I thought they were. People are now getting more sensitive and cannot distinguish between being sexist and not being sexist. The definition of sexism is prejudice or discrimination based on sex. For example a woman being passed over for a job because of her gender; that is sexism.

  • No, he is not a sexist for having an opininon.

    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.

  • I would say he is sexist

    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
