This Fox News Frat Boy Needs To Stop Being So Scared Of Strong Women

Jesse Watters took a moment to slam 'Beyoncé voters' who might vote for Hillary Clinton as single women who need a man to take care of them.

Bill O'Reilly producer Jesse Watters is a frat boy who clearly has some Mommy issues. His unresolved resentment toward women bubbled over on today's episode of "Fox News Idiots On Parade" Outnumbered, the new pretend-we-give-a-damn-about-women show on Fox.

Speaking of Hillary Clinton, Watters waxed eloquent about how she needed those single women who turned out in force for Obama. Calling them "Beyoncé voters," Watters defined those for Fox viewers as women who "depend on government because they’re not depending on their husbands." (Beyoncé, of course, is married and quite successful on her own, but why let reality get in the way of a good stereotype?)

ThinkProgress:

Discussing Hillary Clinton’s reaction to the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on Hobby Lobby, Fox News host Jesse Watters suggested the presumptive presidential candidate is simply attempting to win over single female voters who want the government to pay for their birth control. He referred to that voting bloc as the “Beyoncé voters.”

Appearing as the male guest on Outnumbered, the new daytime talk show on Fox News that pits a group of female hosts against one man, Watters dismissed the concerns that Clintonraised about the low-wage workers at Hobby Lobby who will now have to foot the full costof some types of contraception. “She’s acting like Hobby Lobby all of a sudden is telling these women that work for them to wear a burka or something like that,” he said.

“But I’m not surprised — this is her bread and butter, how she’ll try to win the White House,” Watters continued, in comments that were first reported by Buzzfeed. “She needs the single ladies vote. I call them ‘the Beyoncé voters’ — the single ladies. Obama won single ladies by 76 percent last time, and made up about a quarter of the electorate. They depend on government because they’re not depending on their husbands. They need contraception, health care, and they love to talk about equal pay.”

Comments like this make me wonder why he seems to be so anxious about his manhood. In any event, it should be fun to stand back and grin while Hillary Clinton hits him with the facts.

Figuratively speaking, of course.
