February 28 2007 commenting on ABC News and CBS News:
"women were treated better than men …they had a little cabal; and they intimidated the men in the organization and said, 'If you look at me cross-eyed, I'm gonna bring you up to Human Resources and destroy your life.'….every man in the place was terrified of them…….in a lot of places, women have formed cabals to terrorize the men because they take advantage of, 'Oh, we're downtrodden. You're kicking us in the teeth.'….in every country I’ve ever been to, women are treated worse [than] in the United States. ... Guys are gonna put their hands on you in that society in Italy, in Spain……So, all of this whining about American women -- 'We don't have this; we don't have that' -- to me, I'm not real sympathetic.”
