WATCH | Fox News host Brit Hume had good things to say about Hillary Clinton's debate performance on Tuesday morning.
Then this happened.
'Composed, smug sometimes'
Hume, the host of the Fox News Channel show "On the Record" since Greta Van Susteren left earlier in September, was comparing the faces of both candidates, prominently displayed on the debate's split-screen presentation.
He said Trump looked "annoyed" and "put out", while Clinton was "composed, smug sometimes... but not necessarily attractive."

Twitter was not exactly a fan of that comment.
"Brit Hume" Because it's not enough being an asshat, he had to remind us how much of a creepy, angry, jealous, misogynistic asshat he is.— Eileen De Freest (@eileendefreest) September 27, 2016
Some critics weren't surprised.
Trump wins the debate if he doesn't eat a baby.— Judd Legum (@JuddLegum) September 23, 2016
Clinton wins the debate if she able to convince Brit Hume she's a good person
Some saw a double standard.
Hume said it was about 'demeanor'
The day after the debate, Hume said his comment was taken out of context.
"I said Hillary Clinton looked composed, smug some of the time and not necessarily attractive talking about demeanor here. This is what we judge," he said on the Fox News Channel show "The Five."
"I was just talking about demeanor. We are not yet living in a society where a female candidate's demeanor cannot be criticized. We're just not there yet, but at the rate we're going we may get there."
It wasn't the only sexist issue addressed in the debate. Clinton brought up the moment Trump called 1996 Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado "Miss Piggy."
Trump defended himself by saying she had gained "a lot of weight."
A New York Times interview with Machado revealed that she had developed an eating disorder after Trump's comments.
