Fox News Says Hillary Clinton Will Need Single Women AKA ‘Beyonce Voters’

Fox News always knows how to stir up trouble. In a segment discussing the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court decision—which ruled that private companies can be exempt from the contraceptive coverage under “Obamacare”—and its probable effect on Hillary Clinton’s presidential run, host Jesse Watters categorized a new demographic of potential voters.

“Hillary Clinton needs the single ladies vote. I call them ‘The Beyoncé Voters’—the single ladies,” he said. “Obama won single ladies by 76% 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.”

Seriously? The finger-wagging Beyonce reference came just months after Bill O’Reilly fussed in several interviews about Bey’s music being too sexually provocative. Check out the full Fox News clip up top and decide for yourself if Watters was out of line.
