Yesterday on Fox News's daytime show Outnumbered, correspondent and guest host Jesse Watters said that if she runs in 2016, Hillary Clinton will need to decisively win the segment of the electorate that he calls the "Beyoncé voter."

And who are the Beyoncé voters, you ask?

"Hillary Clinton... needs the single ladies vote. I call them 'The Beyoncé Voters' -- the single ladies. Obama won single ladies by 76% last time, and they 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."

Disgustingly misogynistic, without a doubt. But sadly, none of Watters's four co-panelists called him out for it. Watch:
