MSNBC host Toure argued that there is “sexist, coded language” sometimes used to describe Hillary Clinton on Saturday’s “Up with Steve Kornacki.”
Toure, in a discussion about a list of sexist code words put out by a pro-Hillary Clinton group said that “there is this sort of sexist, coded language that we’ve talked about. We had somebody on ‘the Cycle,’ I think when you were on, where somebody referred to Hillary as ‘shrill,’ right? And we all understood that as one of these code words that people use against women that they’d never use against men…we do have to be careful about the way we talk about female politicians and not sort [use] those code words to say ‘hey, remember she’s a woman,'” although he did argue that the words on the list in question weren’t sexist code words.
