*T.I.’s sexist comments regarding a woman’s inability to successfully serve as president have caught the attention of someone who could be a contender for the White House if she wanted to.
“Nobody said that, in this day and age,” the media mogul said Monday (Oct. 12).
Although Winfrey dismissed the notion of someone making such a statement, she ended up bring some advice into the conversation for T.I .
“Well, you know what I say to that… I want to say, ‘Honey child, hush your mouth,” she said. “You don’t know what you’re talking about.’ That’s what I would say… I don’t buy it, you know, it’s not true. I think people just like to talk.”
Since dropping the comment, T.I. has apologized. But that hasn’t stopped his wife Tiny from coming to her husband’s defense by putting T.I.’s comments in proper context.
“He just lives in the old ‘man takes care of woman,’ chivalry-type-thing,” she said before later adding. “He might’ve been thinking about me at the time.”
