Andrea Mitchell Thought That Bizarre ‘Planet Hillary’ Cover Was A Bit Sexist (VIDEO)

Andrea Mitchell did not like that outlandish “Planet Hillary” cover one bit.

The veteran NBC journalist said Friday that the New York Times Magazine’s illustration for its story on the former secretary of state smacked of sexism.

“When have you ever seen a magazine cover about a male political figure, international figure, potential candidate that looks like that?” Mitchell said on MSNBC.

Mitchell then implored “all graphic artists and headline writers” to use better judgment in the future.

“Think about this before you go for buzz or effect,” she said. “Just think about it one more time.”
