PAT BUCHANAN: ‘LET’S HOPE’ A WOMAN ISN’T ELECTED PRESIDENT IN MY LIFETIME | 

Conservative pundit Pat Buchanan — who was recently fired from MSNBC after penning a racist book bemoaning the “end of white America” — reinforced his sexism during an episode of the McLaughlin Group on Sunday. Asked when the country would elect its first female president, Buchanan predicted “2040 or 2050” — well after his expected lifespan.

Why am I not surprised to see that he said that...

Atleast he's honest I guess

I prefer honesty rather than those who hide behind adjectives. 

He's still a dick though.

Man with no political standing speaks free. Shocking. If a congressman, cabinet member, or any other elected official had said this? I might be more interested.
