CBS’s Nancy Giles: Bristol Palin ‘Makes Me Ill,’ ‘Making Money & Leaving Her Baby at Home’

 Appearing as a guest on Tuesday’s Joy Behar Show on HLN, liberal commentator Nancy Giles of CBS Sunday Morning declared that she was "tired" of Bristol Palin and asserted that "she makes me ill."

After host Behar brought up Palin during a discussion of the television show Dancing with the Stars, Giles sighed and responded: "Can I just, can my comment be rolling my eyes and heavy exhaling? I just am so tired of her. I’m tired of her getting these breaks. I’m tired of her making money and leaving her baby at home. I’m tired of her maybe getting 30 grand to speak about abstinence. Excuse me? I’m tired of her."

After Behar challenged Giles’s suggestion that Palin was neglecting her baby, the liberal commentator continued: "I know, Joy, I do believe that, but I’m so, she makes me ill, so all bets are off."

Giles eventually admitted to sounding sexist after actress Eve Plumb complained that men are never asked about whether they are neglecting their children, with the liberal commentator conceding: "I know it’s not fair. I sound like I’m sexist."

Below is a transcript of the relevant portion of the Tuesday, October 19, Joy Behar Show on HLN:

JOY BEHAR: Nancy, what do you think about Bristol Palin on that show?

NANCY GILES, CBS SUNDAY MORNING: (SIGHS) Can I just, can my comment be rolling my eyes and heavy exhaling? I just am so tired of her. I’m tired of her getting these breaks. I’m tired of her making money and leaving her baby at home. I’m tired of her maybe getting 30 grand to speak about abstinence. Excuse me? I’m tired of her.

BEHAR: Why can’t she, you know, dance and leave the baby at home for a little while? Women have to be able to dance and go to work.

GILES: I know, Joy, I do believe that, but I’m so, she makes me ill, so-

BEHAR: I know, she just-

GILES: -all bets are off.

EVE PLUMB, FORMER CAST MEMBER OF THE BRADY BUNCH: Nobody ever worries about a man leaving the baby at home.

BEHAR: No, that’s true.

GILES: I know it’s not fair. I sound like I’m sexist.

BEHAR: They make such a big deal over this, and then they don’t do the right thing, which is annoying.
