Fox News’ host Brit Hume came under fire late Monday for comments about Hillary Clinton’s appearance during the presidential debate.
Hume, who has been hosting On the Record since Greta Van Susteren left Fox earlier this month, described Trump as looking “annoyed” and “put out,” but the host didn’t stop there.
He added that Clinton seemed “composed, smug sometimes,” but “not necessarily attractive.”
On social media, many were quick to point out that Hume said nothing about Trump’s attractiveness, but was quick to critique Clinton’s debate performance alongside her physical attractiveness.
Hume’s comments weren’t the only ones focused on Clinton’s “look.” Toward the end of Monday night’s debate, Lester Holt asked Donald Trump about his comment that Hillary Clinton didn’t have a “presidential look.”
He focused his response on his contention that the Democratic nominee doesn’t have the “stamina” to be commander in chief.
“I don’t believe she does have the stamina,” he said. [Mary Bowerman]
Have a seat somewhere Hume… Both candidates have flaws….
