Oprah on T.I.’s Woman President Comments: ‘Honey Child, Hush Your Mouth’

By Amanda Wicks

As Oprah Winfrey left CBS’s Broadcast Center on Wednesday morning in NYC following an appearance on CBS This Morning, she responded to T.I.‘s recent incendiary comments about a potential woman president.

When a TMZ photographer asked her what she thought when T.I. said women shouldn’t be presidents because they’re too emotional, Winfrey frowned at the camera and said, “Nobody said that in this…” before trailing off because the sentence itself seemed too ludicrous.

After being pressed for a response to T.I., though, Winfrey offered up, “Honey child, hush your mouth. You don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Of course, T.I. apologized for his comments soon after making them, saying “My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.”
