Oprah Winfrey is seen outside "CBS In The Morning" on Oct. 14, 2015 in New York City.  

T.I. recently, inexplicably decided to go on the record as saying he didn't believe that Hillary Clinton should be president because she's a woman. Once the quote hit the Internet, it was about as well-received as one would expect -- that is, horribly.

T.I. on Hillary Clinton: 'I Can't Vote For the Leader of the Free World To Be A Woman'

Oprah Winfrey, one of the country's most influential women and a person who has better things to do than check Twitter, hadn't heard about the rapper's ill-advised comments until earlier today (Oct. 14), when a TMZ reporter asked her opinion on them as she left New York's CBS Studios.

The face she makes after hearing T.I. believes women are "too emotional" to be leaders (at 0:18, for reference) says it all. "Nobody said that," was the disbelieving media magnate's first response. When asked what she would tell T.I., Oprah's response was simple and to the point: "Honey child, hush your mouth. You don’t know what you're talkin’ about."
