Liberal Media Call Huckabee ‘Sexist’ for ‘Yellin' Joke

November 10th, 2015 11:23 PM

The Fox Business undercard debate tonight was so balanced in comparison to CNBC’s debate moderated by, that liberal journalists used social media to re-ignite their tired “War on Women.”

During the debate, Fox Business moderator Sandra Smith asked candidates what their opinion was on how well Janet Yellen was managing the Federal Reserve. Former Gov. Mike Huckabee responded with a lame joke about his wife also being named Janet, so he’s “very familiar” with the concept of “Janet yellin’.”

The joke was groan-worthy but was hardly a big deal. But the left made it one on Twitter, of course, because that’s what liberals do best: complain.

Amanda Terkel, Senior Political Reporter and Politics Managing Editor of The Huffington Post, claimed Huckabee’s joke was tantamount to calling “all women ‘nags’”:

Terkel and Joan Walsh complained that Huckabee had a history of sexist jokes.

NARAL, the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws, called the joke “sexist” of course

Jeffrey Young, Health Care Reporter for Huff Po actually tweeted his over-the-top translation of Huckabee’s comment:

Elizabeth Plank, Senior correspondent for Mic News said she felt sorry for Huckabee’s poor wife:

Reminder: What Huckabee actually said: “Well my wife’s name’s Janet, and when you say “Janet Yellen” I’m very familiar with what you mean.” (har, har, har).
What the media heard: “My wife is a complaining nag that needs to ‘pipe down.’ Also, I hate women.”
