Bill Kristol: "White women are a problem"

The New York Times columnist speaks his mind on Fox News, then swallows his words.

Neoconservative New York Times columnist Bill Kristol probably hopes Americans were too busy prepping for the Super Bowl to catch his appearance on Fox News Sunday. But Media Matters for America is making sure that his putrid punditry is heard. For your reading enjoyment, an excerpt from the show's transcript:

Bill Kristol: Look, the only people for Hillary Clinton are the Democratic establishment and white women. The Democratic establishment -- it would be crazy for the Democratic Party to follow an establishment that's led it to defeat year after year. White women are a problem, that's, you know -- we all live with that.


Juan Williams: Not me!

Brit Hume: Bill, for the record, I like white women.

Kristol: I know, I shouldn't have said that.
