(CNSNews.com) - “President Obama is making women feel “unsafe,” Tina Brown said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Monday.

"The fact is that Obama's down with everybody, let's face it,” said the legendary former New York editor and current CEO of Tina Brown Live Media.

"And I think that particularly for women, I don't think he makes them feel safe.

“You know, I think they’re feeling unsafe,” Brown continued, adding: “They feel unsafe economically. They’re feeling unsafe with regard to ISIS. They're feeling unsafe about Eblola," she said.

"What they feel unsafe about is the government response to different crises.”

Brown, the former high-profile editor of Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, also criticized the President’s demeanor and finger-pointing during times of crisis:

“I think they’re beginning to feel a bit that Obama’s like that guy in the corner office, you know, who’s too cool for school, calls a meeting, says this has to change, doesn’t put anything in place to make sure it does change, then it goes wrong and he’s blaming everybody.”

Brown was speaking on the subject of voter turnout among women for the upcoming midterm elections. President Obama’s approval ratings among women have diminished since his 2012 reelection.

The British-born media mogul founded The Daily Beast in 2008. In 2010, the online publication merged with Newsweek.
