Did Juan Williams just call Ann Romney a "corporate wife?"

Yes, he did.
Self-proclaimed “real reporter” Juan Williams of Fox News promoted his RNC convention appearance earlier tonight:

How did he use that airtime to display his renowned “real reporter” skills? By engaging in the very misogynist rhetoric that Obama operatives have hurled at Ann Romney.
Got that, ladies? Juan Williams writes off an accomplished mother & grandmother as a "corporate wife". How utterly condescending.

The Twitter backlash was fierce and growing after his Neanderthal remarks:
Tonight, as with most all his TV appearances, Juan Williams causes me to feel sorry for his wife!

Idiot lefty Juan Williams dismisses Ann Romney as a "corporate wife" who has been "taken care of all her life". Why does Fox pay this clown?

Ann Romney tonight: gracious, intelligent, kind, firm, truthful, incisive. A home run. Juan Williams — what an embarrassment for FOX.

Williams disappeared from the panel after his remarks, but Fox News hosts Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly said he wasn’t removed for putting his Ann Romney-bashing foot in his mouth:
