Fox's Bill Hemmer: It's Not Fair Men Can't Be 'A Little Condescending' To Women On TV

Fox News host Bill Hemmer claimed over the weekend that men faced reverse sexism because they could not get away with being "condescending" to women on television.

Fox News host Bill Hemmer claimed over the weekend that men faced reverse sexism because they could not get away with being "condescending" to women on television.

Hemmer's remarks came during a panel discussion on Fox News after Jessica Tarlov argued that Hillary Clinton has a right to criticize Donald Trump for being "bigoted towards minorities and women" at Monday night's presidential debate.

"Or even the comments about Mexicans or Judge [Gonzalo P. Curiel] or the disabled reporter," Tarlov continued. "I could go on obviously."

"You are!" conservative lobbyist Matt Schlapp exclaimed.

"Well, you've said a lot too," Tarlov scoffed.

Hemmer interrupted the discussion to make a point: "You see, that exchange right there is just something -- just pause for a moment here."

"We work in television," Hemmer opined thoughtfully. "And I've always thought that when a man and a woman is on television, a woman can be sarcastic or even, perhaps, a little condescending toward a man and it's okay. But a man can never do that to a woman and get away with it."

"Did I fall into a trap?" Tarlov laughed.
