MSNBC host Ed Schultz made some sexist allusions to housework Thursday on his radio show.
Schultz, talking to the CEO of his sponsor Bio Green Clean said "The product's never let me down. I mean, every time I have used it, now obviously I don't, I don't clean the house you know, uh, I don't mean to be, to have a sexist comment there …"
The Nation's Washington correspondent John Nichols interjected "well that didn't sound good at all Ed."
The liberal talk show host entertainingly tried to back pedal and received what was apparently a "very stern look" from his wife:
ED SCHULTZ: The product's never let me down. I mean, every time I have used it, now obviously I don't, I don't clean the house, you know, uh, I don't mean to be, to have a sexist comment there ...
JOHN NICHOLS: Well, that didn't sound good at all there, Ed.
SCHULTZ: I'm not a house cleaning guy!
NICHOLS: I'm stepping back, I'm stepping back from this conversation.
SCHULTZ: You know, I'm just, I would venture to say that most men aren't house cleaning guys. Honey, am I a house cleaning guy? Do I clean house. Oh, but I am getting a look right now. You're my testimonial right now on this.
NICHOLS: I just saw what I would call a very, uh, stern look.
SCHULTZ: Well, Wendy knows I'm telling the truth, I don't clean the house.
