It wasn't an interview, but the PGA of America president took to social media twice to make sexist comments toward Ian Poulter. The British golfer had been critical of the Ryder Cup captaincies of Tom Watson and Nick Faldo and Bishop injected himself into the conversation by calling Poulter a "lil girl" on Twitter and saying he "sounds like a little school girl squealing during recess" on Facebook. Bishop took down the posts and issued an apology, but it was too late. The PGA voted to remove him "from office for insensitive gender-based statements" the following day. Bishop had less than a month remaining on his two-year term.
