    Here's his full quote, highlighted by Vibe, where he continued to talk about why he doesn't think a woman should be president:

    "Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It's kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally — they make very permanent, cemented decisions — and then later, it's kind of like it didn't happen, or they didn't mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain't ready yet. I think you might be able to the Loch Ness Monster elected before you could [get a woman]."

    My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.
