I read this first in The Hill piece. Please tell me what I’m missing? Last week Klobuchar came under fire for being too tough on her staff. Well it seems that a few in Congress are upset about that. That’s right. I guess Klobuchar should be immune from criticism cause she’s a female? The one congresswoman said something about Trump not being scrutinized. WHAT?
This from The Hill’s Cristina Marcos. “At least some Democratic congresswomen see a double standard at play in the accusations that 2020 presidential contender Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) is hard on her staff. “Women are not usually applauded for being tough. And then when you are,” said Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), trailing off. “But you know what, she’s a big girl. She’ll handle it. She’ll do fine.” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) pointed to President Trump‘s treatment of his staff and the high turnover in the White House. A Brookings Institution analysis found a 65 percent turnover rate among Trump’s senior-ranking advisers as of January. “But somehow it’s an issue for Ms. Klobuchar,” Speier said.”
What am I missing? President Trump getting a pass? It’s pointed out that he has a 65% turnover rate and he’s getting a pass? Who on this earth would believe that? Maybe the folks who said the media was tough on President Obama. SMH. This from Newsmax.
“Women are not usually applauded for being tough. And then when you are…” Rep. Anna Eshoo D-Calif., trailing off, told The Hill. “But you know what, she’s a big girl. She’ll handle it. She’ll do fine.” Sen. Jacky Rosen, D-Nev., told the news outlet she thinks women are judged by a different standard, “so what can seem tough in a man, the adjectives used for men, are not always so kind when they’re used for women.”
In closing, I just don’t get it. President Trump coughs, someone writes a negative piece. Senator Klobuchar gets one negative article and suddenly the world is against her. What say you?
