Juan Williams Blasts Ann Romney as a 'Corporate Wife' on Fox News

Just like his counterparts at MSNBC on Tuesday night, Fox News Channel political analyst Juan Williams thought it fit to continue forwarding the left's main attack on Ann Romney - that she just can't relate the average American woman. Minutes after Mrs. Romney's RNC speech, Williams bluntly remarked that she "looked to me like a corporate wife...[T]he stories she told about struggles – ah, it's hard for me to believe. I mean, she's a very rich woman. And I know that, and America knows that." [audio available here; video below the jump]

When anchor Megyn Kelly asked the former NPR personality what he meant by this loaded term, Williams claimed that Mrs. Romney wasn't "speaking, I think, for the tremendous number of single women in this country or married women...she did not convince me that, you know what? I understand the struggles of American women in general."

Moments earlier, the Fox News personality complimented New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for his "vigorous" and "convincing" speech, which had followed Ann Romney's.

The transcript of Juan Williams's remarks from Fox News Channel's live coverage of the Republican National Convention:

Juan Williams, Fox News Channel Political Analyst | NewsBusters.orgJUAN WILLIAMS: Mitt Romney's wife, Ann Romney, on the other hand, looked to me like a corporate wife. And, you know, the stories she told about struggles – ah, it's hard for me to believe. I mean, she's a very rich woman. And I know that, and America knows that.

BRETT BAIER: Wow. Okay.

MEGYN KELLY: What does that mean - corporate wife?


WILLIAMS: What does it mean? It looks like a woman whose husband takes care of her, and she's been very lucky and blessed in this life. She's not speaking, I think, for the tremendous number of single women in this country or married women or separate. Actually, she's not speaking – she did not convince me that, you know what? I understand the struggles of American women in general.
